Take it apart and clean the switch with compressed air.
Be careful when you put it back together that you don't allow the wires to touch the fan.
You also have to make certain that the small plastic teeth that seperate when you feed paper are aligned properly.

try resetting the shreddar, unplugging it waiting for about 20 seconds and then plugging back in. Check to make sure there is no paper or paper clips stuck in the shreddar, make sure the unit is properly mounted on bin, the overheat light isn't on is it? if none of this helps and you have a warranty on your shreddar now would be a good time ot call them as you might have a hardware problem.

I just had the same problem. I called the 800 # they asked for proof of purchase to replace if 1 year old. I did not have it so...... I took it apart ------ unpluged ! Only to find all gears are fine, service dept. said gears cause this problem, not so with mine. Remove top by pulling of base remove 6 screws on under side, played with the switch inside a bit and, it now works, do not know how long but for know it does. My opinion is the relay gets dirty, and you cannot clean it without talking whole thing apart.

yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?

The switch referred to above is the optical reader. I turned the machine off , and used windex to clean the optical reader area. It works...
