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.

SOURCE: Red Light on, but no jam
Your problem is probally with the safety interlock switch on your machine. On the PS-65c It is located on the right hand side of the unit. There will be a tab of plastic on the inside lip of the basket that goes into a slot on shredder head. If plastic piece is bent or broken machine will not operate. If it does not appear broken make sure when you put shredder head on that it fits flush all the way around on the basket. If none of this helps contact Fellowes Customer Service at 1-800-945-4545 and we will be glad to assist you further.

SOURCE: Shredder won't shred any more.
You might have broken the actual mechanism enabling it to move forward. To be honest, your easiest solution would be to buy another shredder rather than attempt repair if this is the case, they're so cheap now.

Shut off the shredder. Unplug it and let in cool down for up to one hour. This will work if the shredder has stopped due to excessive use.
Check to see if the shredder is jammed. This is the most common cause of shredder problems. Click the power switch to reverse, which should clear a minor jam. If not, set the shredder to auto, and then to reverse again until the jam clears.
Clear extremely stubborn paper jams by grabbing the stuck paper and gently pulling it out. If smaller pieces of paper cause the jam, shut off the shredder and unplug it. When it cools down, carefully use a pair of tweezers to remove the paper bits.
Determine if the power supply to the shredder is working properly. If the power supply is cold, use an alternative source of electricity for your shredder. If it is warm, there may be a problem with the shredder itself. Call your office machine repair shop or the shredder manufacturer for assistance.
Sharpen or oil the blades. Shredder blades need to be oiled on a regular basis to keep your machine in proper working order. Get oil made specifically for shredder blades from an office supply store.
