    I don't see any sensors on mine. It is the DM15C. I looked everywhere. There is a switch on the front inside a slot. You see it when the drawer is removed. A blade like protrusion from the bin goes into it when the drawer is closed. If you press on it, it activates the RED bon light. I have tried cleaning around that....blowing air and such but it doesn't make a difference.

There are two sensors (look like little light bulbs) on the top part of the shredder at either end of the blades. If you pull out the drawer and turn the shredder upside down you will see them. They get dirty telling the machine that it is full and needs to be emptied. Clean the sensors off with an alcohol wipe. If cleaning them does not work you need to replace the sensors.

What kind of oil should I use for Fellowes DM15C. And is there any other maintenance that should be done. The manual was very sparse about maintenance.


Fellows does have its own brand of shredder oil that you can use .... but most brands will work just as well. Oiling your shredder gears is the only regular maintenance that is required.

Broken off DB-0812D mini-transformer from PS 67Cs Fellowes shredder


Purchase a 220/240 volt to 15.6/15.6 volt transformer and run flying wires as it will probably be larger in physical size.
I used a M7230 from Aztronics/Altronics.
Silicon the transformer in place to stop it falling apart while in its place.

Have #dm15c paper shredder and paper sensor does not work. How do I replace the sensors?


Basically take the separate the top from the bottom and you can see how to remove and replace them. Usually 4 screws under the top cover. Carefully separate the top and be gentle with the short cable connected to the main board. You can order the sensors from Fellowes.

I have the Fellowes shredder oil. The bottle has ABSOLUTELY NO instructions on how to use it.
I used to drizzle oil in on the cutting blades through the feed slot on top, grumbling all the while because it was so messy.
Then I got this tip: Once a week squirt oil on sheet of paper that will be shredded. Do 3 or 4 sheets.
Or do it each time the machines stops for its cool-down period.
I run the oily shreds into a separate bag because I recycle my shredded paper and want to keep it clean.
