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.

                I had a Fellowes Straight Shredderm that was at least 20 years old and loved it. However, with having to tighten up, with security these days, I wanted a cross cut. My new shredder is GREAT and more efficient than I expected. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!

                  Shredder motor is heavy duty but loud during operation. Base container is a little flimsy as compared to my last Fellowes shredder. It was fun reading thru all the reviews online. Most seemed like "canned reviews".

                      This little tiny shredder has been amazing me since I got it. I kept my bucket from my previous shredder and kept on throwing things i had to shred. Well today is cold and rainy and a good time to use my new Fellows shredder. I was done shredding in less time than I thought. Your Fellows shredder really does what it says it will do. I was so afraid of a jam, but nope not this shredder. Thank you for keeping your word in your advertisement, it is just great. Thanks Audrey. P.S. Anyone looking for a perfect gift idea, for graduation? This is it.

                              As a former Sales Representative in office supplies, I have been exposed to many brands of shredders. The Fellowes product brand was the one I recommended time and time again to my customers. The reason is simple: Any issue I have ever had with a Fellowes product was handled on one phone call to their customer service team. If we could not troubleshoot the problem, a replacement was promptly shipped out with instructions to return the "problem" equipment in the shipped carton. This dedication to excellence is all too rare in this day and age. As a consumer, I highly recommend this brand to you.

                                  This is my second Fellowes Shredder because the first one lasted so long. My parents passed theirs down to me. My folks have been gone now for years and years ( 10 +) and I am only just replacing their original one. Love Fellowes and would not have any other brand.

                                                    We had the Fellowes W11C shredder, and shred a nickel that was enclosed in an envelope. The shredder was destroyed. I ordered the exact same Fellowes W11C without a second thought. A great home shredder!

                                                      After spending considerable time reading various reviews and checking on safety certifications of paper shredders, I chose this Fellowes Model W11C. Its substantial construction, safety certification by UL, very good reviews, and value for the money were all significant factors considered. I can not personally comment on durability because I've only owned this Shredder a few weeks now. So far, I'm very favorably impressed by its ability to quickly and efficiently shred many documents at a time. I found it quite robust and has not jammed yet. It is definitely on the noisy side but I don't mind wearing earplugs using it since it works so well and quickly and my home office insulates others from loud sound well.

                                                            This is a good durable shredder. It is the 2nd one that I have purchased. I would still have my first one except it was knocked over and broken by my dog. The only thing that I would change is for it to have a bigger waste bin. That is my only reason for giving a 4 star on design
