Suggestion how to fix a non-working shredder

I gave a bad review which I wanted to edit, but Fellowes never posted it. My shredder stopped working a month after warranty and thought it was a defective power switch. It was not. So if your shredder stops working, look down into the slot - if you see paper - use a letter opener or something similar to remove or stir the paper around, now run in reverse to clear the jam. Now you will see a small piece of plastic in the center which was held down by the paper jam. In order for the shredder to turn on, the paper you put in has to push that little tiny piece of plastic in order to turn on the shredder. I hope I've helped someone, especially those people who did complain their shredder quit working.

I grew tired of buying the typical house brand shredders that would die after a year of use and sprung for a far more expensive W-11c. I had high hopes that this would be the shredder that lasts. When new, it would chew through junk mail, cd's, and credit cards without mercy. I oiled it religiously to make sure this would last. We went through about a bag a month of shredded material. While it does have a strong build, the shredder has a serious weakness. The input sensor is a piece of junk. Seriously. It quit working a few months after the 1 year warranty expired. I would hope that a manufacturer would use a popular internet search engine and see the large number of complaints of these shredders only working in reverse. I have tried the credit card gimmick as mentioned by the manufacturer. It didn't work. The only way to get it to work again would be to replace the switch or defeat it. Not cool folks. A more robust paper sensor design would be very easy to create... Another bit of advice to the engineers at Fellowes. Don't make a top heavy shredder with a narrow-base trash bin. Sure it looks cool to have a tapering trash bin, but it really is a stupid idea in the real world. The shredder will tip over if bumped. I'm sure you all learned "keep it simple stupid" while studying engineering. In fact, I'd be willing to give your future designs the common sense test for you for free if no one in the office gets it. That said, I really wanted to like this shredder. If it had lasted longer I would have had mostly positive things to say, except the balancing issue with the trash bin.

    Comments about Fellowes Powershred W11C Cross-Cut Paper Shredder:

    Well besides the fact that it couldn't handle 11 papers at one time like it said it could, I don't see any other problem with it. For example, if you receive a spam/scam letter that isn't particularly thick and you know it's trash, putting it in the shredder as it may cause it to jam or cause it to struggle a bit to shred it even though it's not 11 pages thick. Oh one more thing is the left over shredding underneath it. Sometimes little bits and pieces stick in it and won't come out.

      Comments about Fellowes Powershred W11C Cross-Cut Paper Shredder:

      Put this shredder to use as soon as I got home. I shredded a large storage box full of stuff over a 1 hour period of time. Almost constantly feeding a paper of single and multiple sheets; stopping only to get more paper out of the container. The shredder didn't miss a beat and shredded everything with ease. Right now I'm VERY PLEASED with this product and would highly recommend it for home use.

          I bought shredder to replace my old brand X that wore out. This W11C has plenty of power and works as advertised. I like the design of the waste basket, you can put envelopes, etc. in without having to have another trash can near by. I also purchased the Fellowes oil.

                My only complaint is the design. The previous Fellowes model I had at home had a metal basket (heavier) with a wider base. The basket with this model is plastic, and not as wide. The machine feels very top-heavy, and the unit may be susceptible to tipping over. My vote is to return as many of your models as possible to the metal basket. The operation of the shredder seems to be great. Thank you!

                                Wife thought she should be able to shred a CD with the previous one. Jammed and ruined!!!! She wanted to replace with a cheaper shredder. I insisted on replacing with the same model, and, thus far, I believe this one outperforms the previous one.

                                    Wouldn't consider any other brand shredder, as this is a replacement for an 18 year old Fellows shredder, that I used for both Work as a Sales Manager and personal use. It only jammed when overloaded ((user Error) and performed far better than it was intended to perform. Thanks Fellows!

                                        This new shredder is beautiful in design. It is a very quiet machine and unlike my previous shredder, the new Fellowes handles everything I throw at it in the form of cleaning out an office after retirement. That should say it all. I like the strength and quietness of the machine the most.

                                              I've only had this product for one day, but as far as I can tell it is far superior to any that I've had before. I would like to update my review in a few months.
