You put it on the blades. Turn the shredder on to manual and oil the blades, do not oil as you are shredding. You will hear the motor start to speed up as you do this.

How do I oil the shredder

Found this that should help:
Oiling Instructions for Fellowes Shredders
Why and How Often: Regular oiling of cross-cut and micro-cut shredders is a necessary maintenance step to help keep your shredder functioning properly and prolong its life. Several factors determine how often you should oil your shredder-such as the type of paper being shred, the amount of paper being shred, and whether you shred only occasionally or continuously for long periods of time without stopping.
  • As a general rule, it is a good practice to oil your shredder each time you empty the wastebasket, or once a month.
  • Micro-cut shredders need to be oiled more frequently-ideally after every 15 minutes of use.
How To: Press and hold down the reverse button on your shredder. Put the tip of the oil bottle in the paper entry and make one or two sweeps across the cutters while gently squeezing the oil bottle. Continue to run the shredder in
reverse for another 10-15 seconds.
What to use: It is recommended that you use Fellowes Oil to oil your shredder. You may also use other oil designated for shredder use.
Do not use any oil or lubricant that is dispensed from an aerosol container.
Do not use any petroleum-based oils or lubricants. Use of such oils or lubricants will void the warranty on your shredder and could cause serious injury, as they are fire hazards when used with electronic devices.

The red slight has started coming on when it isn't jammed.

May be just an adjustment on something like a door or cabinet closure micro switch

Shredder doesn't shut off after shredding; have to toggle the switch to "off"; likewise need to manually toggle to "on" to shred. Thanks!

need to clean your sensors that are located in the middle of the throat area. there are two of them. if cleaning doesn't do it, then they may be bad. clean with q-tip and iso alcohol.

If you are planning to fix this shredder, I would suggest you just buy a new one. Because the part is even more expensive then the shredder.

Random Running

I had the same problem with a DM12C  It would start running by itself at random times. Eventually it ran continuously. Fellowes knows about this problem and if you talk to their customer care people nicely (not email) they will take care of you even if out of warranty.
