Found two plastic squares in the sump basket. Each is 1" x 1-1/4" , 1/16" thick. Appear to be broken on each short edge. Can't find a matching breakpoint on the other plastic pieces. Where are they from? Are they needed? Thanks.

this could be a broken wheel or something jamed inside the runner, theres a little plastic clip that is on the end of each runner remove the clips and pull the basket all the way out then check for broken wheels or something jaming it, or even a twisted runner. be carefull removing the clips as they can snap. Ps carefull of sharp edges too.
Yes you can still get those basket strainers and you can replumb with plastic pipe. Make sure when you go to the store to get the extra long strainers made for thick sinks, the fitting on the bottom should be made to accept plastic pipe. You may also need a "mission band" or "fernco coupling" to attach the plastic to metal pipe after replacing everything under the sink.
The plastic casing (tub shell) around the stainless spin basket should not become worn unless the spin basket is hitting the outer shell. From my past experience, this is usually caused by a cracked or broken spin basket support (spider) arm on the back of the spin basket, or a shot tub bearing (which is also behind the spin basket). The bearing is actually part of the rear tub shell and is molded into the plastic. It cannot be replaced separately and requires the replacmeent of the shell.
If the spin basket supports become broken, the basket becomes off balance and rubs against the outer shell. This results in excessive vibration, which may be the reason why the support shocks were broken. No...this is not normally expected. Unfortnately, this is not a simple or inexpensive repair, either. If you have a service plan, or warranty coverage, I would recommend pursuing that as a repair option. If you wish to repair this yourself, I can post a link for you to follow, but it is expensive. This will usually require the replacement of the following parts:
Rear Tub Shell (if bearing is bad)
Front Tub Shell (if spin basket caused significant damage)
Support Shocks (I would recommend replacing all 4)
Drive Belt Pulley (can become warped or bent)
Drive Belt (if showing signs of wear)
Rubber Door Bellow (if vibration as caused damage to the rubber)
You can go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to get prices for everything if you like. Everything can be found under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading, with the exception of the rubber door bellow. It can be located under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading.
I know none of this sounds like positive news, but I do hope you find some of this information helpful. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.
