My little shredderette I ordered the Fellowes Shredder from Costco on-line. It was shipped correctly, was easy to just switch on and there was no hassle setting it up. I love my little shredderette….. January 5, 2014
Jammed, cannot seem to fix. This shredder was alright until it jammed one day. The paper got stuck and I had to put the gears in reverse and forward, for several hours, to get the paper completely shredded. Now the gears seem to be misaligned and I don't know how to fix it. It's too much trouble to fix it or get the replacement parts, and I doubt oiling it will help in this case. Lesson learned: Don't put brochures into the shredder the short way, because if they get stuck, you can't reverse it and pull the papers out. December 10, 2013
worked ok Shredder worked fine until large plastic piece broke and fell into the bin. Plastic piece looks like it is used to clear the cutter blades. Not sure if it can be fixed. If not, it wasn't worth the money considering how little it is used. September 16, 2013
