First things First...UNPLUG THE UNIT. It sounds like it has been fed too many pages at one time. You may also want to dump any shredded paper so there is plenty of room for the shredder blades to pull in the paper. If the paper catcher is too full the blades can grab shreds from the bottom and stop the blades movement. Just be careful. Shredders can be dangerous.

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?

I have the same problem with this model shredder. I spent 1 hr to open it up, and confirmed the PLASTIC gear that turns the cylinders are destroyed! That is why even the motor runs like crazy, but the cylinder cutters do not move at all. Why the engineer didn't design to put in a metal gear? Is it more durable than a thin plastic gear?
