Question about Fellowes DM8C Cross-Cut Shredder

1 Answer

Where can I get new blades?

My Fellowes shredder has some plastic pieces breaking off from between the blades and it keeps jamming up.  I never run staples through it or anything other than paper, so I don't know how the parts broke off, but they have. Where can I find replacement blade units?   Thanks. Lee

    It seems that the plastic pieces between the blades have broken off and the paper gets wedged between the blades. Where to get the plastic pieces?

The basket is cracked


On the bottom of the 'TOP PART WITH THE MOTOR AND BLADES" is a SAFETY SWITCH that must fit onto a small piece on the inside of the basket for the unit to run. If the basket is cracked and the small plastic piece does not match up the machine will not start.

Your options are:
1) Try to repair the basket to get the switch to line up
2) Go to the manufacture's web site to purchase a replacement basket.
3) Trash it all and buy a new unit.

Paper Jammed


I have had the paper jam in my shredder which was not a Fellowes. I removed the power plug from the wall and used old dentist tools to pick the pieces of paper out of the shredding mechanism from underneath. I did not need to remove the cover. After extracting some paper try using the paper reverse option.

My fellowes p 48c is jammed


It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and
place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper
wrapped around the blades - can take a while.
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

My paper shredder has stopped working. There is nothing jamming it - what should I do?


I had this same problem on one machine i repaired and when I took off ththe top cover it had a bad gear where it was split and it would run fine backwards, but not forward. the gear is available online. it was also
clogged with paper, which must have caused a lot of torque on the gear. they are plastic, so they will break instead of really messing something up. good luck

Fellows shredder powershred plastic pieces between blades.


It shouldn't be necessary to function, BUT, they are there to help keep stuff from getting jammed up, so be mindful and don't let shreds get stuffed in between. It will get compacted and really hard to get out.

My fellowes paper shredder is not operating. we have lifted the shredder head and fitted it back on the basket but nothing happened


Hi,
Instructions
Step 1 Shut off the shredder. Unplug it and let in cool down for up to one hour. This will work if the shredder has stopped due to excessive use.
Step 2 Check to see if the shredder is jammed. This is the most common cause of shredder problems. Click the power switch to reverse, which should clear a minor jam. If not, set the shredder to auto, and then to reverse again until the jam clears.
Step 3 Clear extremely stubborn paper jams by grabbing the stuck paper and gently pulling it out. If smaller pieces of paper cause the jam, shut off the shredder and unplug it. When it cools down, carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the paper bits.
Step 4 Determine if the power supply to the shredder is working properly. If the power supply is cold, use an alternative source of electricity for your shredder. If it is warm, there may be a problem with the shredder itself. Call your office machine repair shop or the shredder manufacturer for assistance.
Step 5 Sharpen or oil the blades. Shredder blades need to be oiled on a regular basis to keep your machine in proper working order. Get oil made specifically for shredder blades from an office supply store.
Good Luck!

The shredder is making a thumping noise like something is out of whack. Tried lubricant and running back and forth. It still thumps.


Common problems.
Jammed paper.

When sherdding paper that has any type of adheasive or glue, such as junk mail advertisments, the glue gets stuck on the blades.
FIX:
1 - UNPLUG
2 - remove top cover
3 - using a small screwdriver or other pointed small object, carefully clean out
the blade paths of jammed paper. Typically there is a cylinder of blades on the underside that does the shredding.
4 - be careful not to damage or PRY the blades, just enough pressure to get the paper out.
5 - dont use oil or lubricants, they can GUM up the blades.
6 - assemble

Give it a try.

I have a Fellowes ps-65c shredder. If I load a piece of paper, it doesn't turn on automaticaly. If I turn on the switch the shredder runs OK in both directions. I have cleaned both sides of the paper...


its possible the sensor has gone bad

you will need to UNplug the unit , then take it apart 9 screws then gently pry it apart with a screwdriver or butter knife
you could test this with a voltmeter, one side emits a constant should have 5-12 volts across this
the other side the reciever will change its voltage when you break the signal with a piece of paper.

also ive seen chunks of plastic break off from inside and as the teeth rotate the plastic can cut the wire

Unjamed, but jammed light remains on and won't shred


Most likely the PC board has gone bad. It will cost over 100.00 from fellowes.
