Too Hot To Shred, November 1, 2009By J. King’oi “msafiri” (Netherlands) –

This review is from: Fellowes P-35c 5 Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder (3213501) (Office Product)

This shredder was recommended for light use, for the odd sensitive home document. It does shred, but has major problems with overheating too quickly, which automatically shuts the machine down for at least 5 minutes.
The second, more serious problem, is that it jams quite often because there are too many strips of paper left between the teeth. Reversing for a few seconds as suggested in the manual serves to worsen the problem, because it forces these strips back into the very narrow paper slot.
Today I opened up the thing because it would neither shred nor reverse, due to junk between the blades and lumps of compressed paper between the housing of the cutting mechanism and the intake slot. It requires taking out 6 screws and lifting the lid off. Inside, there was a switching mechanism that fell out, and a power transformer connected to gears that drive the blades. The gears are lubricated with a very sticky, messy, gooey substance, so watch out. It took more than ten minutes to dislodge the accumulated debris with a thin screw driver, because the blades are behind yet another slot in a white plastic housing which I did not dare to open. No wonder the stuff just collects over time and burdens the motor, creating a vicious cycle of overheating, inefficient shredding and more jamming.
In conclusion, if your needs are limited to destroying ten sheets of paper per week, this machine may work for you. However, if you collect documents over time and then suddenly get the urge to destroy them (hahaha!), steer away from this machine. Because of the waiting times while it cools, and the jams over time, it would not be good for your productivity.
