Electrical shredders are generally cheaper, smaller and lighter; however the cable length can be limiting and the quality of the shredded material sometimes does not turn out so good. Gas shredders allow you to move around your yard freely without restriction and tend to be more powerful. On the down side, they will need more maintenance, in the form of refueling.

Spare parts for a fellows p45-c shredder

Can I get my Fellowes paper shredder repaired or purchase parts for it? The majority of Fellowes personal shredders (small shredders that can fit under a desk) are repairable and will have parts available. 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. The serial number will be located on the bottom side of the shredder head below the bar code.
Go to

Beeps and stops; doesn't stop when empty

As for your first part - It sounds like there is something wrong with the switch lever that moves to complete the electrical circuit to start the shredder. On every shredder I have seen, there is a little "bellows" linked up to this lever that pushes it back so the machine will shut off. Most of the time all you have to do is put another piece of paper in and let that get shredded and the shredder will stop afterwards. If not, then just use the main switch to turn the shredder off.
Second, the beeping during "mid-shred" sounds like a warning that the shredder is starting to overheat and shut down. If this is the case, just wait a few minutes to allow it to cool down and try to finish the shredding you have. I have found that if you feed a shredder a constant stream of paper to shred, this might cause the shredder to overheat.
Also, the shredder may get overloaded with pieces of the shredded paper. Here is the way to check on that:
2. Lift the shredder from the bin and turn it upside down.
3. Look for an excessive amount of paper in the bottom of the shredder. If there is a lot, you can remove it in several ways. (Most likely the bin is quite full at this point.) Pull the majority of it out and put it in the bin. If there are pieces of paper that you can pull out with your fingers, use a tool (needle-nose pliers, serrated tweezers, a hemostat, etc.) to get those difficult pieces out.

Replace the unit on the bin making sure that it is the same way you took it off. In most cases (on the better shredders), there is a notch on the underside of the shredder that needs to be on top of a "nub" that is on the edge of the inside top of the bin. Unless that nub is aligned with the slot, the shredder will not work.

Shredder does not work

Hello there. I'm sorry to hear about your shredder I'm sure there is something we can do. The first thing we need to do is check to see that it even turns on. If there is a light that turns on while plugged in then we know that it is properly turning on. If the light is off then it must be an electrical problem, either with your socket or your shredder. I recommend trying a different socket.
If it turns on correctly you might want to see that the blades aren't stuck with paper. TURN OFF the shredder and try and move the blades with a screwdriver or a flat head. You can also see the paper in some printers. If you cannot see the blades then we can take an alternative.
You can find shredder oil in any office supply retail store. You put some oil on the blades and it lubricates them, and at the same time eats away the paper that is stuck. Most times this is the problem. If you can't go to the store you can use a little bit of cooking oil. That will do the trick as well.
If none of these methods work than it must be an electrical problem in the shredder. Hopefully not however.
Good luck

My whirlpool dryer stopped heating


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

No power to shredder wwhen plugged in

This mfr. and model seems to be very problematic. I suspect that whatever serves to protect the motor from overload has failed completely or an internal fuse has blown. 
BTW: For t_vinson; WD-40 can attack a number of different plastics so without knowing which plastics were used in this machine, that might make things much worse. For electrical contact cleaning/restoration, there are contact cleaners available that do not affect plastics.
