Question about World Office Products Papermate PM-1550CD Shredder
Your shredder is not dead It's just the (On and Off) switch not working properly (loose contact). Try to disassemble it and take a look if it's in the center location to make contact with On or Off positions.
But remember to clear the bin and remove any particles thats causing the clog or jam manually.
