on the underside of the shredder, at the top of the space where the cuttings box is, there are 2 sensors, 1 at either end of the shredder blades. it sounds like these sensors could be either dirty, or defective. try to clean these with a cotton bud or similar. it may need new sensors, bu it is worth a try!

it's overheated, after you turn on the shredder, is it working?
if not, that means your shredder's motor is death.
need to buy a new shredder.

Only if you are mechanically handy and know how to take a part. Most of these shredder's sensors are PLASTIC and break EASILY. I should know, I had to take apart my wife's shredder.
I had to bypass the sensor and rewire it. It can be done if you know what you are doing. If not, don't try it
In your case I would unscrew the top assembly. Than I would use a can of canned air to clean out the sensor eye. Than I would use tweezers to pull out all specks of paper I could find.
Your best bet is to try to return it for a replacement.

First, try switching to reverse, alot of times, stuck paper will come back out in reverse. Then unplug the unit, turn the head upside down and with a small flathead screwdriver, knife, or tweezers, dig out pieces of paper. It takes alot of effort but by digging small pieces out, a little at a time, you can get most of the paper free.
