I had the same "click" noise when trying to shred. I had a Staples replacement guarantee (extended warranty) so I called them up and described the issue. They are sending me a gift card for the purchase amount. Seeing as they did not want the original unit back I decided to take it apart to see if I could find the problem. I did not find an issue with the gear as the other user stated but I did notice a burn mark on the circuit board just under the relay (which could make a click noise) I removed and inspected the relay (desoldered), but I could not see anything wrong with it so I re-soldered it back onto the board and re-soldered (re-flowed) all of the other connections just in case there was a cracked joint. Upon testing the shredder still has the same "click" sound. My guess is there is a faulty device on the circuit board such as a resistor or relay. To sum it up, to repair this particular issue you will be unable to implement a "simple" fix and it would realistically require either a new circuit board or a whole new shredder.

I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.
