Question about Fellowes 3011001 Shredder
Unless you are going to take the entire shredder apart, you are not going to be able to get to the blades unless you were going to pour some kind of liquid adhesive removal into the blades.
This wouldn't be my 1st suggestion.
One thing you can try is, go to your local hardware store and purchase a pint or quart of 3 in 1 household oil. With the machine UNPLUGGED. **** Also I would place some sheets of paper towels inside the catch bin to absorb any excess oil that drips out. **** Pour the 3 in 1 oil into the blades and let it soak in. I would start with about 2- 4 ounces, then wait about 10 minutes to allow the oil to soak into the labels. Plug the machine in and try running 1 single sheet through the shredder. With any luck, some of the labels will either stick to the paper or drop into the basket. You might have to do this about 3-5 times.
** Remember to UNPLUG the shredder each time you are pouring the 3 in 1 oil on to the blades just as a safety precaution.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if it worked or not and also post a feedback / rating for me.
Have a good day.

If you machine will operate in reverse you might like to try this as a way to remove sticky substance from the cutter heads. Unplug the shredder from its power source and the apply some "Ronsonol Lighter Fluid" to the blades. Allow the lighter fluid to be absorbed between the cutters for a few moments. For the most part the lighter fluid evaporates quickly but at the same time it should dissolve the sticky substance caught btween the cutter heads.Allow five(5) minutes then plug your shredder back into a power source and try to shred some single sheets of scrap paper. If you are succesful with this attempt your next step should be to unplug the shredder once more and apply a light coating of oil to the cutter heads. Happy shredding.

Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.
