Sensors went foobar on me twice (just wanted to use that word).
First time was from using bags we'd gotten from Costco (those regular white 10-gallon trash bags, you know?) and something or another happened with the sensors and the techie came and told us we need to use the officially branded Fellowes 36054 Powershred Waste Bag. So, we bought a bunch, used them and it was working for... a while. This was just weeks out after getting the machine and the explanation was something about the material of the bags messing with the sensors. No replace or anything was done on the sensors here, just a replace on the bags.
Second time was from improper oiling of the machine. So, following the instructions provided, we'd poured oil right into the slot of the shredder, using of course the officially branded Fellowes Shredder Oil, 12 oz. Bottle with Extension Nozzle (35250) (how the Hell are there used ones being sold?!). A couple months later? Machine would run like nuts whether paper was in there or not. Only way to stop it was to turn it off and only turn it on when we needed to shred. Mind you, the whole point of having sensors was to automate this process. So, I got back from college and I called tech support. He came out here, ran the machine, and immediately knew that the problem was with the sensors. He explained to us that the instructions provided expect you to take apart the top of the machine and pour the oil directly onto the gears (not through the slot, directly onto the gears). Of course, removing the top of the machine would void our service warranty, so it didn't make sense for us to do that or even have that in the instructions. NORMAL people would do the same thing we did and just pour it in through the top. Now the problem with this? If even one drop of oil leaks down the side wall and gets near the two sensors, paper dust will collect on the oil and eventually ruin the sensors. So, fair warning, if you're buying this machine, do NOT pour oil directly down the slot.
So, some key notes:
1. Use Fellowes bags and Fellowes shredder oil. I'm pretty sure any oil will work and if you get lucky, you might find cheaper bags that work, but this is to be on the safe side.
2. When you want to oil the machine, pour oil on a sheet of paper you're going to shred, put another sheet of paper on top of it (oil sandwich), and put that through the shredder. If you want to properly do it, you need to take off the top, but there are wires hooked to the top and if you pull just a bit too hard, you'll disconnect them and the shredder won't work. So, again, to be on the safe side, paper and oil sandwich.
3. Clean the sensors. With the shredder off and a long cotton swab with an alcohol/water mixture. Dust will collect around the sensors, this is inevitable. So you will need to clean it off.
All in all, it's a really good shredder. Those problems happened in the first year and it's been over a year since we'd had any further problems with it. I'm actually getting one more for the office and one for my family to use at home now that the price has dropped. In my opinion, as I've had shredders ranging from less than $100 to over $2000 as well as contracted shredding services, this is the best affordable shredder. If you want to drop $1,500 or so, I highly recommend the Fellowes 38425 Powershred 425Ci 28 Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder. I got one of those same time I got the first 225Ci and haven't had a single problem with it. The only two reasons I'm not getting two of those? 1. I know that someone, family or one of my 40 coworkers, is going to mess with it in a way it shouldn't be messed with and I'll probably have to replace it anyways. 2. Because it's not like they'll know or appreciate the difference anyways, but my bank account sure will.
Minor Drawbacks: (1) It is noisier than implied by the description "ultra-quiet". I really thought it would be very quiet. It isn't silent. Someone in the next room can definitely hear it is running, especially on wood floors. Compared to my previous small shredder, it sounds similar, or slightly better due to no stressing sounds. But I might not shred while someone is on the phone in the room out of politeness. (2) You can't fit many envelopes width-wise if you want to avoid fractional readable text appearing on the shreds, but you can just pull out the contents and drop them together. (3) It does mound up inside under the opening like any shredder, but its size gives it a lot of room before it reaches the top. (4) I went through 3 damaged units before settling on my 4th.
The first 3 units I received all had cracks in the plastic molding, one dented in on the back near the rear handle and power port. I recommend opening from the bottom and sliding off the box in a way that it would be easy to piece back together to ship back if you find a problem. Amazon was superb, quickly sending 3 in sequence until temporarily pulling the item to inspect inventory, finding no problem, and a week or two later called to send me my 4th. My 4th actually had a loose plastic screw that doesn't seem to belong to anything. But it works great, so I'm happy with it. Just inspect and exchange within the return period if you have a problem like mine. I am still happy I bought mine.
