You don't use liquid oil. At the office supply stores they carry oil sheets that you insert just like shredding something. They come ion various pkgs. Staples and Office Depot stores carry them. They are universal, no model number needed. I hope this helps.

You can take the machine apart by removing 7 screws around the motor housing. The last screw is deep inside and hard to see. I have heard from people that the plastic bar that holds the sensor switch arm can be broken. If you can find the broken part and glue it back on, it will run fine if that's the problem.
Here is Staples customer service webpage if you need to find parts for it: http://www.staples.com/sbd/content/help/contact/index.html?cm_sp=merchandising-_-customer%20service%20tab-_-contact%20us
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

I think it is necessary for you to take it apart. Is your shredder designed to handle plastics such as CDs? Try these steps and see if it will do you any good.
Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers. Look for small debris from the CD which may be stuck inside the shredding/feed mechanism.
Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small plastic scraps that may cause a jam.
If the cleaning failed and your shredder still wont start. You need to have the shredder serviced as the damage may have extend to cause a mechanical failure on the device.
Hope this helps.
