I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.

This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

A shredder at our office had the same problem. Take out the bin & turn the shredder upside down. There is a sensor on the bottom that looks like two led lights. If it is covered with paper dust, the shredder will think the bin is full. It might work if you simply wipe it off.
The sensor can be hard to find if it is really dusty, so just wipe off the entire pottom really well.
