The unit requires a complete cleaning and oiling , there is paper shreds jammed at the sides. POWER OFF AND REMOVE POWER PLUG FROM WALL BEFORE CLEANING. Staples or Grand and Toy should have the shredder oil.
If you "unplugged" the machine and let it sit for 1/2 hour and the "overheat" lite still won't go out then you probably fried the pcb inside the machine...you can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts advice.
Just a FYI: I had the same problem. Nothing appeared jammed. But I took the housing cover off and low and behold the rubber roller that turns the shredders had MELTED to the inside. That's why it wouldn't work. This happened while shredding a single DVD - something I had done effortlessly on numerous occasions. You may want to check to see if the roller melted or if some debris has jammed up inside the unit, like mine did often.
