Trigger Switch -- Fellowes S70C-2 Paper Shredder

My trigger switch seems to have broken and has dropped loose inside the housing. It no longer completes the circuit to the motor. I can pry it out into normal position, but the first piece of paper knocks it back in. It it fixable? If so, where can I get the part/assembly?

    Taking a year to get a response saying that there are no more parts available, is not very responsive or helpful.

Unfortunately there is no longer a parts program available for this machine. It has been phased out.

  • Anonymous Mar 06, 2008

    I would have given you a response sooner but I just found this site a little over 2 weeks ago and have answered almost 90 questions.

    I only responded to yours just in case there were still any unanswered questions you may have had and I figured you would rather know the straight up truth that this shredder had been phased out.

    So, I apologize for not being very responsive or helpful. Have a nice day and Thank You for choosing Fellowes.

Ativa Shredder. It seems to be stuck in reverse?

Question edited for clarity and spelling of maker 'atvia' to 'Ativa'.

If it is only running in reverse the most likely cause is a faulty switch as the switch just reverses the polarity of the power to the motor. Also check that nothing is covering the proximity sensor in the throat of the shredder.

The shredder will only constantly run in the "Reverse" mode. The trigger located in the center of the feed entry slot, which activates the shredder, may be blocked. To clear it, you would need to insert an index card or file folder (i.e. rigid paper or cardstock) in the center of the feed slot and apply force.

How do I get top off to clear Paper Jam on Fellowes PS-12Cs

FELLOWES SHREDDER
In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

We have a p600c-2 shredder and it will go in reverse, but it wont work in forwards. we have taken it apart, and we think the problem is the little switch inside. please help?

I had the same problem with my shredder. I removed 6 screws and the cover of the on/off switch. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism so it operated freely and reassembled the shredder. Hopefully this will work for you also.

Reverse works fine, but I cannot get it to accept new paper to shred

Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Never mind providing help, I fixed it myself. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

Light is on. Reverse works, paper fed won't trigger the shredder

If you are pushing a button to make the shredder run something doesn't sound right.

See if this makes sense, Generally shredders will use a photo switch or a micro switch to detect the paper. If you are pushing a button it sounds like you have a micro switch. The switch should have an arm that would extend into the throat of the shredder and the paper would hit the arm activating the switch. From your description it sounds like the arm is missing or bent out of the way of the paper. If you can see the paper actually hitting an arm that would activate the button then the arm may just need to be bent a little so it moves farther to operate the button

Hope this makes sense and helps
