If this unit is worth it to you, you can build your own gear.
Here is a link to get plastic repair materials to make plastic parts. This site also will have materials for repairing plastics.
Another possibility is to search Ebay for a unit like yours which has other problems. Never can tell... it may be there.
Make sure you ask for the model of the unit in your search (on the NET as well. The serial in this case is not needed.

SOURCE: Motor on / Blades don't move.
Sounds like the internal gears or drive shafts are either broken, or out of alignment. Not exactly something that can be easily fixed usually. Hopefully, it's still under warranty?

there are two switches under the cutter area. 1 for sensing when your basket is full, (sometimes these bin-full flaps get stuck in the up position, energizing the switch) and the other is a switch that detects if your basket is installed. fellowes has modified these shredders so many times, that there are alot of different configurations. look for something that resembles a flap under the head and make sure its in the down position. as for the basket sensor, some baskets had 2 projections on the left and right top of basket. one may be broke. if so, you can "cheat" the switch with a screwdriver to see if thats the problem.

There is a screw hidden under one of the stick on labels. Remove that and the top comes just fine. I got it torn apart, completely cleaned of debris but the rollers still don't turn. I noticed an electrical arc when the switch is pressed so the unit is toast.
