Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Most of the shredders have a micro switch that senses if the paper has been introduced to the shredding slot.
These micro switches are activated by a little arm/leveler that touches the paper and activates de contact inside the shredder housing.
While disconnected from the power, try to check if the switch is working properly. Check if you can hear a "click noise" while moving it back and forth by using a paper clip. When this sensor arm is broken, the device will not operate since it does not detect the presence of a paper sheet to be shredded.
Make sure your power is on (not only connected to the wall - but check if there is any indicator in the shredder). If the arm is not broken and you still hear the click noise indicating the micro switch is being activated, then your problem could still be the power since there is not LED indicator in the panel of this device.
If this does not solve your investigation process, please make sure your power cord is fine. Otherwise, it would be an internal electric problem in the device.
One additional possibility (since I have no further details from you) is that the device is on, you can hear the motor running but the gears that move the shredder blades are broken (that has happened to my device).
I hope this gives you some light in further investigating your problem.
