My office max shredder OM99729 light says it's on but it does nothing and it has another light that says attention but nothing! ANY ideas?

it means your "Trigger" for a Jammed piece of paper is stopping it from running, sounds like something is Wedging it from turning, unplug and look into it for jammed up paper or a staple.

Shredder keeps running

shredders have a small lever that is near the cutters that is depressed by the paper that is being shredded, when the paper clears the lever, the shredder shuts off. If it keeps running, paper is sticking in the lever area, holding it down so the shredder cannot turn off. Unplug the shredder and clear the area untill the lever or little arm can move freely, and the problem is solved.

In the middle of feed opening there is a sensor which in your case will be pushed in and stuck. Try clearing using tweezers or soak it up with WD-40 and still using tweezers try to release the sensor

The shredder overheats. The most we can shred are

Have you put any shredder oil or a shredder oil sheet through the machine.

Shredders need oiling to keep the cutters free

Free cutters mean clean cuts and less friction

OfficeMax OM99729 Shredder with bad gear

If it happened within a year, you should have just had the warranty replace it. We had it happen after nearly 11 months, it was replaced within two days.

Shredder overheats quickly and can only do 2 pages...

sadly I wish I could.
You are in need of a new drive motor in the device.
That is the item kicking out the overheat.
Sorry it is either replace the motor, or the shredder.
