SOURCE: Shreds halfway, then stops. Fellowes SB-95C

on the underside of the shredder, at the top of the space where the cuttings box is, there are 2 sensors, 1 at either end of the shredder blades. it sounds like these sensors could be either dirty, or defective. try to clean these with a cotton bud or similar. it may need new sensors, bu it is worth a try!

SOURCE: 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.

We have a Fellows Pwoershred 2200SC that keeps showing the full bin light even when it's empty. Tried cleaning the eye near the feed area with canned air as per recommendation by a shredder maintence...


There are also sensors under the shredder head to indicate when the bin is full. You either have a defective sensors or a dirty one (clean with air).

We have a CR220 fellowes shredder. It will shred 1/2 of a peice of paper, then the basket full light comes on even tho the basket is empty.


you can try cleaning the "bin- full" sensors. they are located on the inside of cabinet, on the bottom of the shredder "head". one will be to the left side of basket and one to the right. they kind of look like little glass eyes mounted inside of black rubber casings. paper dust on these will do this sometimes. if that doesn't do it then it sounds like your "bin-full" sensors are bad. a known problem with these shredders. fellowes has come out with modified sensors. if it was purchased within 2 years, it should still be under warranty.

The empty basket light stays on all the time


Try cleaning the bin full sensors. located on both sides of your machine, inside the bin,under the cutter head. If that does not solve problem, you need to replace bin full sensors.
