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?

There is a metal helical drive from the motor that turns a plastic gear wheel, all to commonly it seem that if the shredder is over loaded the plastic has the teeth stripped off it by the metal gear. least that is what has happened to mine. I am still trying to find a replacement gear, about to give up and buy a new one.

Why is my scooter grinding when i ride it.

check whether the brakes need attention. might be the clutch/drivetrain. maybe wheel has a worn bearing. Whatever it is it appears to need experienced mechanic to investigate before it gets worse or causes an accident

Tne fan continually makes a pulsating / grinding sound. How do I know if it is making the sound because it is out of balance or because there is a problem with the motor?

Try spinning the fan by hand. If the grinding sound is present, there may be something caught in the motor which is rubbing.

If the fan is out of balance, you may be able to see it vibrating or wiggling back and forth a little, especially at higher speeds.

Good luck!

SCANNER FAILURE TURN OFF AND ON IT WILL NOT

On the top of the scanner mechanism, there is a black tab that gets caught on the underside of the scanner surface, just beyond the glass, towards you. You will hear a gear grinding sound, that"s the tab getting caught and the motor skipping on the belt. either bend the tab down, or remove it. Its on the black cover that"s on top of the scanner mechanism. Also remove any tape that is on the bottom of the trailing cable under the scanner mechanism that prevents it from moving all the way to the left.This worked for me, It drove me nuts till I found out.
