I have the same problem and upon removing the gears I found one that is plastic and worn pretty bad. Replacement parts can be purchased at 1-800-222-2310. Part # VF1012MX-08 Gear #2
I advise purchasing the metal one.

If you expect to repair this, expect to spend weeks waiting for parts if you can get them at all, at least an hour to do the work and expect to spend 2/3 the price of a new one for the parts.
My advice, my friend, save the collection can, discard the shredder. On your new shredder, dont over feed it.

Solution 1 worked for me. I unscrewed all 7 screws, pulled apart the cover carefully. Beware, there are wires attached. you can lay it side by side.
The activator is the white plastic thing. You need to make sure that it sticks out and as the paper goes from the top, through the cover, it hits the white activator.
At the end of the white activator, you see it has some plastic to push on the metal strip. This engages the forward motion. You'll here a click if you test the paper going through. This click is the sound of telling the motor to roll forward.
I think it got knocked out of place when I tried to insert a CD into it. Luckily, I didn't buy another shredder because of the Best Solution in this forum. So thanks for your help!

WHICH OF THE PLASTIC GEARS FAILED? FELLOWES HAS A REPLACEMENT THAT CHANGES A PLASTIC GEAR TO A STEEL GEAR-A GREAT IMPROVEMENT.
