There are 7 screws! It took me FOREVER to figure it out but on there is an additional screw that is underneath the white sticker. It says something like warranty will be voided if the sticker is removed but in order to do anything by yourself, you need to remove it!

How doyou remove the top to a fellowes s701cm shredder


Remove the six obvious screw around the perimeter of the underside, plus one more screw in the center that's hidden under a label. Then cover will just lift off.

MY FELLOWS GD1200 SHREDDER IS REALLY JAMMED WITH PAPER.WENT TH SHRED ENVELOPES AND TOO MUCH PAPER WAS INSIDE.hOW DO I UNJAM THIS? iVE TRIED REVERSE SLOWLY THEN FORWARD,ETC.IT IS STUCK BADLY.I SAW AN ANSWER...


First, UNPLUG IT!
2 - Then remove the top. shredding part and flip it over.
3 - Carefully, with your fingers, not a pliers, remove all the paper bits and pieces from the underside of the shredder.
4 - Turn it back to right side up, and place it on the basket as it should be positioned, then plug it in and turn it on in REVERSE first.
5 - Once it starts, let it run until it stops; it should only be a couple of seconds.
6 - Turn the direction back to normal, and see if it will run that way.

Good luck,
-a.

Make sure you remove all five screws--there's one hidden under the sticker on the underside of the shredding unit.

You have broken gears. Call customer service at 800-327-8508 and they will send you 2 gears for $10 including postage. I got mine in less than a week. Easy install.

I have a Fellows Powershred ps 60cc and removed the shredder top to empty the shredded documents. When I put it back on, the red light will not go out and it will no longer work. It was working perfectly...


the shredder has a safety switch that closes when the unit is put back on the basket. check under the cutter head for the hole that has the switch and check your basket for the acuator put together so they will line up

My Durabrand Shredder, model WM6X,.


This Shredder is an Aurora AS650C Rebranded for Walmart as Durabrand. You can call Aurora at 800-327-8508 8-5 PST and tell them that you need one of the plastic gears for the WM6X Durabrand, they know exactly what your talking about, and will offer you two gears. The one that is in contact with the drive motor is gear "A" and the Plastc reduction gear that drives the steel gears is gear "B" Hope this helps

DM15C stops after 4 seconds, open bin light comes on


I lived with the problem for 6+ Months -- drove me NUTS -- Today, I called Fellows -- Spoke to "JoAnn"... She said this works 80% of the time...
Pull out the bin -- put your foot inside to hold the shredder down -- pull up on the top of the shredder -- you WILL hear a POP as the plastic top disengages from the bottom but TRUST ME THIS IS OK! -- take off this top section (which houses the blades) -- flip it over -- you will see 6 screws total but it is the sets of 2 screws close together to focus on -- right next to the screws you will see a tiny glass sensor -- use a q-tip and alcohol to give them a wipe -- press the top back on -- bin back in -- you are DONE -- This took me less than 1 minute and it works as it did the day I got it! Go shred something!  :)
