Not a problem so much as a potential solution to someone elses problem but I have one of these SX102M shredders that broke a couple of teeth off the large METAL gear in the drivetrain. I knew I'd stand no chance of finding a replacement gear so I've moved onto a new Royal 16CDX (Costco's version of the Royal 160MX) and that means these SX102M parts are up for grabs for anyone who wants to pay the shipping costs to get them.

Shredders have safety switches that turn everything off in emergency conditions. So clean it out good and check movement and function of those switches. Also check for internal fuses, these things can be overworked and blow a fuse.
Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.
Sadly, light duty machines as yours do overheat and shut off. Shredders are rated for run time. An example: 4 min run time with 60 min off to cool down. I could not find your machine's rating. However, given the 10 page volume I would guess the rating close to the 4 min on. High volume shredders are rated as continuous run. They should never over heat.
It's the paper sensing microswitch. Wire a small toggle switch and drill a small hole for it on the far right side of the top housing. Just remember that the switch has to be turned off when you are finished shredding or the motor will keep running till it burns out
Here is the scoop! The casters on your shredder are 30mm dual, swivel, threaded 1/4 x 20 x 1/4. These give you a rise of 1.5 inches above floor. Trying to match this spec is very possible but a little expensive (of course if the mfg made parts available it would be actually cheap. But they don't soooo).
My research found 71 manufacturers of the product that you need. The cost of getting production samples (which are free) to the USA is a minimum of $25.00! Out of sight for this project.
So, Hamar, what do you suggest??
I suggest that you go to PetSmart and purchase item #2755096 for $6.99 and replace all four casters. This will raise your shredder off the floor a bit more but since your raising all the corners it won't rock you to sleep trying to keep it level.
That's the best I could do...anyone else have a better solution?
