It sounds like the safety switch on the door has failed.
You will need to have the safety switch on the door replaced.
There is another option but it is not recommended as it will bypass the doors safety mechanism and requires the switch wires to be cut and connected to complete the circuit.
You should never play with anything electrical as it can cause serious harm and / or death.
So I would recommend you have a qualified repairer look at it.
I hope this helps.
If you have any further questions please let me know.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I'll just replace the whole unit."
SOURCE: I have an OfficeMax paper
Do you have any lights? If not then you will need to replace a blown fuse on the circuit board. The fuse is soldered into the circuit board. Check the fuse with an OHM meter for continuity. The fuse is 6.3 A miniature pigtail, You have to solder in a fuse holder and regular size fuse unless you have a source for the pigtails. If you have lights and can hear a motor then chances are, the overfeed caused the teeth of the gear that operates off of the motor to break which is not uncommon. How old is the shredder, is it possible to return it under warranty? Have you made sure that all the paper is out of the teeth and not blocking the sensor? sometimes it can get quite hard to remove all the jammed paper. You will have to take the cover off the shredder hear to acces the circuit board, might get lucky and find this model ahs an easy change fuse but most do not. Also have you checked it with another outlet to make sure the outlet fuse did not blow?
Pigtail fuses should look like the ones in the picture provided.

The majority of Fellowes personal shredders (small shredders that can fit under a desk) are repairable and will have parts available. If you would like to check your model shredder to determine if parts are available, please click the "Ask a Question" tab above, and advise the model of shredder, the shredder's serial number and a description of the part needed. The serial number will be located on the bottom side of the shredder head below the bar code.
*** Please note: If your shredder is still within the warranty period, we ask that you do not open your shredder until speaking with a Fellowes Representative, as opening the unit may void your warranty.***

I was having the same problem with my shredder. I called
customer service; I was informed it was the gears on the inside of my shredder.
My shredder is no longer under warranty. Don't open your shredder to repair it yourself
because it will void your warranty. However, she is mailing me out the part I
need for a small fee. Their customer service number is 1-800-327-8508 in the
USA and international only 1-310-793-5650. I do hope this help you!
