Combiner not working properly in hadoop Hbase Scan

Hi i am running an application which reads records from HBase and writes into text files .

I have used combiner in my application and custom partitioner also.

I have used 41 reducer in my application because i need to create 40 reducer output file that satisfies my condition .

All working fine but when i use combiner in my application it creates map output file per regions or per mapper .

For example i have 40 regions in my application so 40 mapper getting initiated then it create 40 map-output files .
But reducer is not able to combine all map-output and generate final output file.

Data in the files are correct but no of files increased .

Any idea how can i get only reducer output not mapper output .

// Reducer Class
job.setReducerClass(CommonReducer.class); // reducer class

below is my Job details

strName = strFullFileName[strFullFileName.length - 1];

String strArrvalueStr[] = valueStr.split(DATA_SEPERATOR);
if (!strArrvalueStr[0].contains(HbaseBulkLoadMapperConstants.FF_ACTION)) {
sb.append(strArrvalueStr[0] + "|!|");
multipleOutputs.write(NullWritable.get(), new Text(sb.toString()), strName);
public void cleanup(Context context) throws IOException, InterruptedException {
