take the shredding portion of the shredder off and check in its teeth (while unplugged of course) to check that there are no errant pieces of paper or plastic in the device. You may even want to try and blow out any possible paper stuck inside with some canned air or something.
The first thing that comes to mind is that the switch is faulty and that one of the contacts has come loose and is shorting across the reverse contacts. There is little else that can go wrong with a shredder, so in this case try replacing the switch.
I clipped all the zip ties to free up the harness and physically inspected every connector till I found a connector that seemed rather loose and came off with minimal force. I then gathered the 3 wires and install a #18 wiring nut. the shredder is fully functional again.
Is the power indicator On? If not check your power source first. Check your main power cable. If its ok, check your fuse then. If all are ok. Try pressing the power button with force and longer time.
Hope this fixes everything.
