Question about Fellowes Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have a Fellows Shredder model JB01 DS - 1 050916 V A 0066447 CRC 30110. No idea how old. Forward/Reverse switch is bad. Sensor in center will not stay up. Runs great in reverse but will not run forward. Is it worth installing a new switch? Motor seems OK. Please advise cost to repair. Thank you

SOURCE: Shredder motor seems jammed

must disassemble feeder unit and visual check for jam. The debris may be a part of the shredder that has broken off.

SOURCE: Motor on / Blades don't move.

Hello,
Sounds like the internal gears or drive shafts are either broken, or out of alignment. Not exactly something that can be easily fixed usually. Hopefully, it's still under warranty?

Try cleaning the sensors with a cotton swab and alcohol.

I have jb01 and can nott see any sensor no light no switch


There are 2 methods. One is a mechanical arm that is lifted by the paper.
More often there is an LED light at one end of the ffeed to the cutters, and a sensor at the other end. It may be that the sensors are dirty - use a cotton bud dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean the sensor light(s) and heads
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in
reverse.

Our Olympia paper shredder forward switch does not work but the reverse does.


Hello,

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Good luck..

My fellows jbo1 jamed and then stopped running is there a reset buton?


Chances are it's over heated.
Ensure the wastebasket is empty then move power switch to the REVERSE position. This will reverse the jammed paper out of the shredder. If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between REVERSE and AUTO (l) positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through the shredder. If the shredder jams in reverse mode, move the switch to AUTO (l), depress the manual forward button located on the center of the shredder head and allow to run for five seconds. If jam does not clear, move switch to REVERSE again and allow to run for five seconds. Repeat this process until jam is cleared. If necessary, turn off shredder and use care to grasp the paper and carefully pull out to clear jam. Once cleared, move switch to AUTO (l) to continue shredding. The jamming may be happening because the cutting cylinder needs to be oiled. See oiling instructions below.

Shredder will only go in reverse. Waste bin full warning coming on. Waste bin is empty.


Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
or you can
switch the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred.

MY FELLOWS GD1200 SHREDDER IS REALLY JAMMED WITH PAPER.WENT TH SHRED ENVELOPES AND TOO MUCH PAPER WAS INSIDE.hOW DO I UNJAM THIS? iVE TRIED REVERSE SLOWLY THEN FORWARD,ETC.IT IS STUCK BADLY.I SAW AN ANSWER...


First, UNPLUG IT!
2 - Then remove the top. shredding part and flip it over.
3 - Carefully, with your fingers, not a pliers, remove all the paper bits and pieces from the underside of the shredder.
4 - Turn it back to right side up, and place it on the basket as it should be positioned, then plug it in and turn it on in REVERSE first.
5 - Once it starts, let it run until it stops; it should only be a couple of seconds.
6 - Turn the direction back to normal, and see if it will run that way.

Good luck,
-a.
