You have probably got the bin so full it is stuck/jammed full of paper and you now can't remove it...this is a "consumer" model machine and to keep cost low they do not provide a "bag-full" light on the panel...you should regularly empty the bin so that the shredded paper does not totally jam the bin and in extreme cases then get caught back up into the cutting machanism and blow the pcb inside the machine...check your "users" instructions to remove the bin.

Another idea is to work it open enough to get the crevice tool for the vacuum cleaner in there. Remove as much at the front as possible. Use a fork to loosen up paper and work it ford and vacuum. Keep repeating until the bin can be removed. The vacuum helps with clean up but keep a box or bag ready to dump most of the paper in. Also empty before paper becomes packed down.

I emptied the shredder and now the red overheat/door open light comes on when I turn it on. will not allow me to shred anything. please help!


There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.

Embassy shredder open door light won't go off after emptying bin. Therefore no shredding


The shredder probably has some kind of switch or sensor that detects that the bin is in its correct installed position. The interlock may be broken or blocked by paper shreds. An inspection inside the bin recess may reveal the cause so that it can be corrected.

Door open button is lite. How do I solve this issue.


Sometimes debris can gets in the way of the sensor that tells the shredder it is safe to shred. Empty the shredder completely and see if the lite is still lit.

We missed emptying out the machine, now we are not able to open the drawer. What can we do?


Try shaking the machine to lower the cuttings in the bin. You might have to pull really ******* the bin to remove it. Be careful you do not break handle on the bin. The machine should have stopped shredding when the bin full sensors were activated, if they did not , then you have bad sensors in the unit and they should be replaced.

Fellowes S8-95C is full, but can't get it open. Help!


I was able to pull really hard and open the bin 1-2". I turned the unit on its side over the trash can and some shreds came out. I alternated shoving a sturdy metal rod inside (first an aluminum architectural ruler then the longer handle of a squeeze clamp) to loosen up the shreds and tipping the machine on its side to get some loose shreds out. After doing this enough times I was able to dislodge the dense clumps and remove the drawer. Now that the machine is empty there is a red light on and it does not shred.....UPDATE: turns out somewhere along this rough process (paper was in rock solid clumps) a small piece of the door that presses the "door closed" switch broke off. Jammed a piece of cardboard in there and it shreds again, although it does not automatically turn off when the door is open.

Shredder screen reads door open even if the door is closed and wont let me do any shredding


Unplug it and then open i t up. You are looking for a piece of shredded paper that is stuck or jammed. Can even be a accumulation of paper dust. The piece won't be that big but most of the time that is all that is wrong. The paper either jams the door sensor or blocks it and gives the error. It can also be a bad door sensor or switch. Not very common but can happen.

If this is actually an SB-15C I posted a solution elsewhere and will repeat it:
I called the toll free number for Fellowes Help Line, 800.955.0959, and spoke to John who was most familiar with the SB-15c. I indicated that the "bin full" LED was bad (actually the transmit bulb). After John ascertained that I had indeed cleaned the bulbs, he made available a replacement part, MasterCard or VISA required. Replacement of these bulbs is not for everyone. A level of technical ability and some tools will be required.

I have never had this level of technical support available on the first call. Kudos for Fellowes.
