I have a powershred PS 70 and the small gear that drives one of the shredding knives is broken. Where can I get a parts list and secure a replacement gear.

Thanks,

    Called number above (Fellows Customer Service) and spoke with Jessica. was advised that a gear kit is no longer avalable for this shredder as it was manufactured in 1996. I don't like to throw stuff away that can easily be fixed. Repair should be included in the Recycle process (Reduce/Reuse/Recycle). Serial number for machine is 070 960412 A 001 00033933. If anyone has another suggestions I am open to hear/read it.



    Thanks,

    Steve

Fellows PS-70 shredder basket ajar light is on


Here is some general advice. Shredders have an interlock to be sure they don't run while the basket is not in place. They don't want you holding the head unit and it starts running and shreds your fingers. So you need to look for the switch that tells the head unit that it is in place over the basket. I'm guessing here but it might be something like a little plastic protrusion that pushes into the head unit to activate a swith. It is possible that the little plastic piece is broken and is not activating the head unit. That would explain why the display thinks that the basket is ajar or misaligned. BE CAREFUL if you tinker with the interlock and be sure it is unplugged!! That is an ORDER!

Fellowes PowerShred PS 40 with defective switch


Its just seated together with the gear/blades housing ,

make sure you didnt miss one screw, then pry and pull upward its just stuck as the gear housing and blades are pressed in and seat firmly making it seem like its stuck , over time all that paper goo is also binding it up .


Heres a few sites that have gears another that has manuals you may have to call or email as not all parts are listed on website

Need a sensor switch for fellows powershred 220. Won't sense paper.


The top sensors may be bad or even the main board that they are connected to is bad. Try cleaning them with a lightly moistened swab or compressed air. Fellowes will sell you the parts.

Fellows Powershred c-120 c indicator lights


your bin full sensors are dirty or broken to clean access bottom side of shredder head and look for a set of screws on each end of the paper throat. There you will see two little bulbs (bin full sensors) these have more than likely gathered paper dust and need to be cleaned with a Q-tip dipped in a little Isopryl Alchohol. This should solve your problem. If you have any questions just call us at 1-800-945-4545. A Customer Service Representative will assist you.
