Question about Fellowes DM8C Cross-Cut Shredder

1 Answer

Will not work in forward

The shredder button only works in the reverse position. I've cleaned it out and cannot see anything that would prevent it from working.
Does the top come off?

My Staples shredder will work in reverse just fine but it will not move forward, rendering it unable to shred anything.


They do this when they get dirty. There is a sensor that tells when it is full, the sensor gets paper dust on it and wont work in forward.
You need to clean it real well. If that does not help then the issue is something else like sensor failure.

Fellowes P35C works in reverse but not forwards


In forward operation, a detector senses the presence of material in the feeder and turns it on. Reverse operation is selected by switch position; no sensor is involved. I would bet that if you remove power and turn the shredder upside down you will find bits of shredded paper clogging your shredder, particularly in the center area where the detector is located. After thorough removal of debris, you should be back to normal operation

Our Olympia paper shredder forward switch does not work but the reverse does.


Hello,

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.

Good luck..

Shredder works but when I got it jammed I switch to reverse and cleared paper, now it only goes in reverse and cannot get it to go forward and shred again. Both positions on the switch only go forward


Try cleaning the "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in...they may be dusty/dirty....if that dosnt fix it you may have pooched the pcb inside...contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for Parts assistance.

No power to my shredder


Hello,
Check that there is still power to your outlet by plugging in something else.
Make sure that your shredder is properly and completely seated on your waste receptacle. There is a switch in the notch that prevents the shredder's running if it doesn't make contact. With the shredder unplugged, you might need to look up into the notch to make sure that there idn't anything in there that might prevent the switch from making good contact.
Work the switch from forward to reverse and back.
This should get you going.
Regards!, --W/D--

Paper got stuck. machine will not turn on.


First, check that the machine is properly seated on the waste container. There is a switch that prevents the shredder's operating if it isn't properly seated. Will your "ready" indicator light up? If the machine will not turn on at all, try something else in the outlet the shredder is plugged into. If there is no power to the outlet, you probably tripped the breaker. Reset it and proceed as follows. Turn your switch to "off". Unplug the shredder and flip the shredding head upside-down on a stable surface. Remove anything that was previously hanging down. Gently remove stuck stuff, keeping your hands in a safe position. Place the shredder head back on the waste container and plug it in. Most all shredders have a reverse on them for just this occasion. Work the machine reverse and forward, until it releases. When in reverse, remove whatever the shredder gives up, with the switch set to off, of course. This should get you back in the shredding business. Next time you're at one of the office supply stores, get some shredder lubricator sheets. Using these from time-to-time lessen the incidence of jams.
Enjoy! --W/D
