its the combination of plastic parts in the shredding device . the plastic tongs part craks off then the metal binds . paper builds up in that area .
its unlikely you can fix it .
youll put ur eye out trying.
I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)
Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil
If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders
Common problem with paper shreds blocking the sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. You may have to remove the top of unit to properly clean. When removing top, be very careful with the short ribbon cable. Lift top slowly and then reach under and disconnect from main board. Once top is off, you can cycle motor by hand and try to remove shreds with needle nose pliers. Of course, disconnect power first.
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
