Yes, I would get some shredder oil( this is a light weight oil ) and pour some of the oil onto the cutting shafts/teeth where you insert the paper...then once in a while it does not hurt to fed a sheet of paper thro that you have put some oil onto so that the cutting teeth remail lubricated.

Cutters Seem to be clogged, preventing their rotation. How do I remove the shredder unit from the body so I can clean it out? Is there any solvent or oil that can be used to recondition the unit?

Try removing the waste bin.. inside there are probably about 4 screws which hold the cutting head onto the cabinet...once these are removed the cutting head should lift OFF...turn the shredder head upside down and remove between 4 and 6 screws which hold the top on.

I was shredding 3 papers at a time and the shredder seemed like it was running out of gas and dying. The red overload button came on. I checked the basket and it was not full at all. The motor seemed to...

Return it to the place you purchased it for the motor has a problem and can be a fire hazzard. You should be able to run 6 sheets through at a time without it slowing down.

More than likely, there is a lot of paper debris jammed between the cutters and strippers. If you are handy, try the following.
Disconnect the power.
Disassemble the shredder from the lower bin to access the cutting head. Clear the head of all debris with a small screw driver or ice pick. Reassemble and oil the cutters with shredder oil, being careful not to get any oil on the optics. This should solve the sluggish problem. Oil on a regular basis, before every use.
