I work with Fellowes shredders so I can't tell you about the automode but to get out the jam you can try this:
Remove as much paper as you can with a needlenose pliers or something with a good grip from both the top and bottom of the shredder than saturate any paper left in the machine with a vegetable based oil only do not use any petroleum based oil (may cause fire)
Let that soak for up to 8 hours this should soften up the paper enough to let you power thru the jam as soon as you get power. You should be able to do a search online to find a customer service number for your shredders manufacturer. Good Luck!

For me, the problem was the sensor connections. I took the unit apart (7 phillips screws, I'm not sure why I didn't have to remove the 8th.) Then I took the paper sensor unit off (2 more phillips screws.) Then I removed the little black box that both sensor wires are connected to (1 more phillips screw.) Then I pried that box open with a flat head screwdrive. Some parts fell out. I put it all back together and it worked.
If you don't want to mess with it, just remove the two wires and tie them together. The unit will always be on when turned on to Auto, but that's better than not working.

For me, I had to move the 'black thing' in the center of the shredder at the top out of the way with a screwdriver. The black thing, whatever it is, seemed stuck against the top. So, once I moved it out of the way, it works. That may not be the right thing to do, but it worked for me.

I have the sam e problem. I just so happen to be one of those 'fix it myself people.' I disassembled the shredder to find that one of the plastic wheel mechanisms was broken. You know the wheels with grooves in them that is usually found in a clock or watch. The problem is, I don't know where to find a replacement. I doubt that home development stores like Home Depot, Ace Hardware, or Lowe's has it, but I guess I'll have to check. I came across this question while looking for the manufacture of the shredder to order a replacement part. I'll probably just buy a new shredder before it's all said and done.
