My Fellowes PS-65C paper shredder does not go forward; it only goes in reverse.

    When I depress the button to shred it will not go down at all. I have to manually depress and try to push the button down. Normally when I depress the button it will stay depressed, the light goes on and the shredder proceeds.

Hi, that is a defective on or off/rev switch or your P.C. board is defective. In either case, reverse black and red wires that connect to circuit board and run in reverse it will work just not in reverse or your shredder will require a service call..

Take care

Hi,

Please try doing this:

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
This should ideally resolve the issue or we will proceed further.
Waiting for a response.

Looking for a basket for a fellows 65c


You can only buy new one or block a microswitch inside. Basket from Fellowes PS-67Cs can be used too. If you use this shredder privately just block the microswitch.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs


FELLOWES SHREDDER
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 wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

Can you put oil or wd40 in shredder


I own a Fellowes PS 60 shredder.
NO! Do not use those lubricants.
I have used Silicone lubricant for many years and it does not and has not caused any problems in my PS60. Spray it across the top of the cutters and manually run the shredder (without paper) forward and reverse for a few seconds. This will lubricate all the cutters. I do this only once until my collection bin is full. Once full I empty it and lubricate once again.
Here is a link to the manual for a Fellowes PS60 Shredder.
Maybe it will help you in resolving some of your problems.

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

Red Light on, but no jam


Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.
