I had the same thing happen to me today - I had just shredded a ton of stuff, emptied the bin 4 times - after emptying the bin the last time, all of a sudden it would only go in reverse. I pulled out my instruction manual and it says the motor might overheat and to let it cool down and try again. I let it cool down for about 1 hour, cleaned out the gears and dusted off the sensor and it started working even better than it did before.

the gear inside the shredder must be broken. This is the wheel that connects the motor to the blades. its much cheaper to buy a new one that try to repair this.

The optics are OK!
There is a small electromagnetic sensor on the cuttershaft which senses the input load.
I could be maladjusted or defective.

I have the same problem... The shredder will work in reverse only. Nothing at all happens while in the automatic position. I checked the back side of the circuit board for anything out of the ordinary. There was a hot spot on the back just opposite a zener diode and a resistor. Considering how these arn't expensive shredders, I just bought a new one.
