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.

    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.

check for a broken /loose wire from the trigger on the hand piece back to the relay for the motor
the trigger completes the circuit when pressed so that is the circuit I would be first looking at

Elu. Why doesn't it start?

Old ELU TGS171 /tgs 172 tgs 173 until A3 type If the 171 or 172 a relais in the switch on the right side or a 60 mf Capacitor is damaged or only a broken powercable , if 173 in the switch on the front a little round bridge rectifier inside the switch can be defect or a powercable or motor cable can be broken .look also on the little metal actuating pin also on the switch that the whole unit is tight so by abbreviate the trigger switch will work . if not the must primary a broken cable or a loose slight contact .

Hi, i have ONHF 6117 Hoover washing machine which dropped out of my van while moving house the problem is there no motor action, i had someone look at it he changed the pcb module board, motor and pre

All washing machines have a switch that is activated when the lid or door is closed. This tells the machine its safe to run the motor. If this thing dropped out of a van, it's possible the housing twisted and the little metal bracket on the door is not making contact with the safety switch or the switch may now be broken.

Dyson dc 15 brush roll not spinning. motor is good, upper switch is good.

Open the right side of the vacuum with a hex head screw driver. There are 4 screws. Inside you will find a circuit board.
1. Make sure the varistor (S20K150) is not blown, these models seem to have an issue with this. It is a flat blue "quarter" looking component near the top edge of the circuit board.
2. At the bottom of the circuit board are two white wires connected via push on connectors. Remove these from the circuit board by sliding them away from the circuit board. Power on the vacuum and engage the drive button. If the lower motor still does not engage check step 3.
3. A blue and yellow wire runs off the bottom end of the circuit board. These are the wires powering the lower motor. Check continuity with a multimeter and make sure they are not broken. I have seen where these wires will break as they run through the housing of the vacuum. If they are broken, replace them with any wire of the same gauge.

I have a model 5BS520C. The light works but when I pull the chain for the fan, I hear the sound of three speeds but the blades do not turn. [email protected]

Here some toubleshooting:

Problem 1. Fan will not start.
Probable Cause
1. Fuse or circuit breaker blown.
2. Loose power line connections to the fan, or loose wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Reversing switch in neutral position.

Suggested Remedy
1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing.
3. Make sure reversing switch position is all the way to one side.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 2. Fan sounds noisy.
Probable Cause
1. Blades not attached to fan.
2. Loose screws in motor housing.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Switch housing binding against the blade hub.
5. Wire connectors inside switch housing rattling.
6. Screws holding blades to flanges are loose.

Suggested Remedy
1. Attach blades to fan before operating.
2. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over-tight).
3. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan flanges to the motor hub are tight.
4. Check to make sure that the switch housing does not bind against the blade hub.
5. Check to make sure wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or against the interior wall of the witch housing.
6. Tighten screws securely.

WARNING: Make sure main power is turned off.

Problem 3. Fan wobbles
Probable Cause
1. Setscrew in motor coupling is loose.
2. Setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly is loose.
3. Screws securing fan blade flanges to motor hub are loose.
4. Fan blade flanges not seated properly.
5. Hanger bracket and/or outlet box is not securely fastened.
6. Fan blades could be out of balance.

Suggested Remedy
1. Tighten the setscrew in the motor coupling.
2. Tighten the setscrew in the hanger ball/downrod assembly.
3. Check to be sure screws which attach the fan blade to motor hub are tight.
4. Check to be sure the fan blade flanges seat firmly and uniformly to the surface of the motor hub. If flanges are seated incorrectly, loosen the flange screws and retighten.
5. Tighten the hanger bracket screws to the outlet box, and/or secure outlet box.
6. Interchanging an adjacent (side-by-side) blade pair can redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation.


Hope helps.

Vacuum starts up on its own. The only way to stop it is to unplug it, why is this happening?

The motor can only be switched on this way for 2 reasons. The circuit board inside the canister is bad or somewhere in the wiring in the house or in an outlet, a connection has been made in the low volt wiring, triggering the relay on the circuit board. If you unplug the low volt wiring from the canister and the problem goes away, then the problem is in the house, if the vac still turns on when the low volt wiring is disconnected then the problem is the circuit board inside the vac.

The side housing on Braun 8585 came loose at the top

How did this happen? Did you drop the shaver at some point? I've heard of the side parts popping off when dropped. Otherwise, it could be one of the plastic securing pins that holds it has broken off.

On the bottom is a small panel where the plug does through it. You can pry that off, which releases the side housing parts. Be careful prying that part off. Use a small screwdriver and a piece of rubber or cardboard to brace it so you don't scratch up the part. Hopefully the side part is intact and can just be repositioned. Good luck!

Our Frigidaire FEX831CS dryer started making funny noises and has completely stopped. We hit the start button now and all we hear is is humming in the machine. We checked the belt and it does not seem...

Check the inside rear of the drum for the three screws in a triangle closest to the center.
If these screws come out the drum rolls off center and the motor can no longer drive it.
Good Luck
