Question about OfficeMax 0M96431 Shredder

Open Question

I have a model 0M00733 which became filled with shredded paper and never indicated it was full with the bin overload light. The shredder quit working and the bin would not move and be opened. After some force was applied the bin came out and it was observed that a large amount of paper was present in the back of the machine. This paper was extremely packed tight and had jammed the cutters. After taking some parts off (which I know voids any warrentty) The resulting view showed a fractured drive gear and metal teeth which fit in the plastic gear itself. is the gear a part that can be obtained?

Don't open it, check on product warranty policy and take it back or send it in.

SOURCE: shredder won't shred

They may be a compression switch on the lip where it sets on the bucket. This it to prevent it from running while its off its buckette. If this is not all the way in it wont run. Look for that clean any safty switch or buttons you find.
Slap it with your tax booklet and call me in the morning. Good luck DFD

I suggest you just go buy a new shredder, otherwise, if you really want to fix it. That would cost you more then you go buy a new shredder.

You have guides or cutter assembly out of alignment. Take it apart and double check before reassembling.

What causes the Fellowes Powershred SB-15C shredder to show that it's full when it isn't?


Check and make sure there is no paper or paper dust covering the Bin Full sensor. underneath the head.

Beeps and stops; doesn't stop when empty


As for your first part - It sounds like there is something wrong with the switch lever that moves to complete the electrical circuit to start the shredder. On every shredder I have seen, there is a little "bellows" linked up to this lever that pushes it back so the machine will shut off. Most of the time all you have to do is put another piece of paper in and let that get shredded and the shredder will stop afterwards. If not, then just use the main switch to turn the shredder off.
Second, the beeping during "mid-shred" sounds like a warning that the shredder is starting to overheat and shut down. If this is the case, just wait a few minutes to allow it to cool down and try to finish the shredding you have. I have found that if you feed a shredder a constant stream of paper to shred, this might cause the shredder to overheat.
Also, the shredder may get overloaded with pieces of the shredded paper. Here is the way to check on that:
1. UNPLUG THE ELECTRICAL CORD FROM WHEREVER YOU HAVE IT PLUGGED IN.
2. Lift the shredder from the bin and turn it upside down.
3. Look for an excessive amount of paper in the bottom of the shredder. If there is a lot, you can remove it in several ways. (Most likely the bin is quite full at this point.) Pull the majority of it out and put it in the bin. If there are pieces of paper that you can pull out with your fingers, use a tool (needle-nose pliers, serrated tweezers, a hemostat, etc.) to get those difficult pieces out.

Replace the unit on the bin making sure that it is the same way you took it off. In most cases (on the better shredders), there is a notch on the underside of the shredder that needs to be on top of a "nub" that is on the edge of the inside top of the bin. Unless that nub is aligned with the slot, the shredder will not work.

How do you remove the top to see the gears in a Royal 16CDX cross cut paper shredder. The overload message is displayed, and I don't know how to get it unjammed.


a possible solution is to UNPLUG the unit, reach in from underneath and start pulling stuck paper out. On mine (different model) I can remover the paper receptacle bin and reach up to remove stuck paper. this usually is caused by overloaded bin pushing shredded paper back up to cutters because it is overfull......BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST !!!!!

Paper shredder jammed


Yes....this is a consumer model....NO BIN/BAG FULL INDICATOR....to keep costs down, you will just have to try to get the bin out a little at a time and slowly reach-in and "fish out the shredded paper...once you have enough out the bin will come out...hopefully the backed up paper has not jammed the machine and blown the PCB inside.....if it has give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING


look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

Fellowes S8-*5c


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.

The "bin full" keeps on coming on


first off, fellowes has had problems with the bin full sensors that sometimes, can only be corrected by replacing them. however, there are two things to check. make sure it doesn't have a bunch of shredded paper hanging down from the cutters. that can trigger the bin light as the sensore are located under the head, but above basket. last, but not least, clean the sensors. they get paper dust on them after awhile causing same indication. if those two things don't fix it, it will have to have sensors replaced.

good luck,

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.
