Does this shredder activate when it senses paper being fed?

in the space where the paper goes to be shredded is a very small plastic level that is pushed sideways when the paper is put in
this lever is between two cutter blades and is easily jammed in the on position from paper bits
remover any paper around the center of the shredder that is blocking up the cutters

Shredder won't turn on when plugged up

Shredders have a safety switch that won't allow it to run if it is off of the bin. Sometimes if the shredded is on the bin backwards it won't run because the plastic piece on the bin that presses the switch is only on one side of the bin. Sometimes if the switch goes bad, the shredder won't run.

Shredder will run in reverse mode but not in forward/auto. Has not been jammed or overheated.

Unplug the shredder. CAREFULLY clean out the shredding teeth and paper pathway. On some models you can loosen one end and open the paper path for better access. Ther is an acuator arm for a switch at one edge of the paper path and that will get clogged with paper and the arm cannot move to tell shrdder paper paper is in, ready to go. A blaast or two of canned air in the direction of the arm will help too.
The reverse action is ususlly initiated manually and is not affected by switch operation.

Shredder stops shredding, you have to turn it off and on,

If I had designed a shredder, I would equip it with a circuit or device that would detect overloads (too much stock to shred) with either an overcurrent detector or a thermal shutoff so it's likely that one of these two methods is used in yours and if you are following the guidelines as to the maximum number of sheets, then this circuit is faulty and shutting the motor down too early.
