    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

We have a Fellowes Powershred C0320C shredder which will does not take the material to be shredded except on one end and does not pull it in and shred it.


Try to use the reverse action of the shredder. This runs the shredder blades in reverse and sometime CLEARS the left over shredded material that can cause a malfunction. Careful...watch your fingers as the blades are sharp and they can injure you. Never place your hands or garments near the open blades when it is plugged in.
Check also that the small switch is free and clear of derbies. When the cutting gears are in place on the container box, the small actuator switch is free to turn on or off until the shredding box is full. Once the box is full of shredded material the switch will turn off (a safety provision) and you must empty the container before it will operated again.

Cause of "stall" during routine shredding letter head paper


Lack of grease on the internal gears. accumulation of small bits of paper causing the motor to slow down and stop.

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!

One of the gears in my sb-97cs has broken. The motor runs but the broken gear prevents the teeth from rotating and pulling paper into shred. I have spoken with people at Fellowes on the phone and they have...


I have the same problem with a stripped gear, to remove the top i found it best to place the shredder on its back, then with a pozi screw driver there are 5 screws securing the top in place, these are inside the shredder above the paper bin, 1 in each corner and 1 in the centre.

Hope this helps.

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
