Fellowes Shredder Parent Part # 38605

I have a Fellowes Shredder that needs a new plastic gear. Fellowes tells me that they cannot locate the part due to the age of my shredder. The gear itself has # 38741 imprinted on it. Is there anywhere I can get this particular gear for my shredder?

If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear.
Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.

Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there.
Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.

Fix paper shredder


The problem is usually shattered plastic gears inside if the motor works but the shredder blades don't. My shredder has two shredded cogs. Getting replacements is not easy. The companies that sell these types of cogs, don't want to sell singly. If they were 10 bucks each, it is cheaper than buying a new shredder. There are YouTube videos on how to repair them with metal strips or epoxy adhesive.

Fellowes is a good make, so contact them direct.

If you would like to check your model shredder to determine if parts are available, please click the "Ask a Question" tab above, and advise the model of shredder, the shredder's serial number and a description of the part needed.

Only solution - Don't buy a FELLOWES shredder.
It is ludicrous that they cannot (will not) supply a spare gear wheel when there are thousands of instances of them failing. Or even think outside the box - fit metal ones?
