took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

SOURCE: Overheated ativa shredder. How
Small Shredders like these are not continuous duty machines.Meaning they are use for very very short time intervals. If it's "heating" up right away, the motor may be going bad. Shouldn't take 15 minutes to cool down after a short use period.
Here's a suggestion: Just before you run paper thru it next time, squirt some oil all the way across the cutting blades. Then run the paper. (Oh, and make sure you have some shredded paper in the basket to catch and absorb the excess oil) Good luck.

I have a Ativa MD 1000 that I just bought. It ran for a few minutes the first time I used it an then stopped. I turned it off and unplugged it in case it had overheated. The temperature light did not come on. I wait for over 30 minutes and tried using it again. I was able to shred a couple of sheets of paper and it stopped again. The next morning I couldn't get it to work at all. The green ready light is on but the shredder will not start. I can't tell if anything is stuck in it. How do I getting running?
