Question about Fellowes Powershred P-45C Shredder
There is a sensor that detects paper in front of it to turn on the shredder mech. it is probably covered with paper dust so the machine constantly thinks there is paper being shredded. give it a clean with a qtip moistened with isopropyl alcohol - make sure the shredder is unplugged first.
