Runs reverse auto


From your manual!

In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the waste basket; insert waste basket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

We have a CR220 fellowes shredder. It will shred 1/2 of a peice of paper, then the basket full light comes on even tho the basket is empty.


you can try cleaning the "bin- full" sensors. they are located on the inside of cabinet, on the bottom of the shredder "head". one will be to the left side of basket and one to the right. they kind of look like little glass eyes mounted inside of black rubber casings. paper dust on these will do this sometimes. if that doesn't do it then it sounds like your "bin-full" sensors are bad. a known problem with these shredders. fellowes has come out with modified sensors. if it was purchased within 2 years, it should still be under warranty.

Don't know how to open the basket


If the basket does not slide easily out of the shredder cabinet it maybe "jammed full" of shredded paper which is preventing the basket from sliding out. There is a clear concave "handle" on the front of the basket which users should reference to determine the fullness of the basket. I pulled out and pressed upward on the "handle" it easily popped in towards the basket. From there it was possible to remove enough of the shredded paper to allow the basket to slide out. WARNING: UNPLUG THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE PUPPY FROM THE ROOM.

'Full light' blinks on and then off when you replace shred basket. Aurora AS1712x shredder. It's not full, won't work at all.


The sensor or button that tells it it's full, probably has paper dust or something jamming it. Clean it up without liquid and it will probably work.

Fellowes PS60C-2 shredder doesn't shred


there are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.

Basket full light on


without seeing the product, there are 2 (two) things to check.
First, unplug the shredder and go underneath where the bin full flap is. Sometimes paper debris gets stuck between the flap and switch. Check to ensure the switch is not out of adjustment. you'll have to remove the top cover to perform this. Otherwise, your PC Board is defective.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.

good luck,
