Staples shredder spl-exc8a
Such appliances often have one or more hidden screws, hidden by control knobs/switches, rubber feet, stuck on labels, plastic plugs that need drilling and so forth. It is usual to find at least one screw is anti-tamper and needs a driver of an unusual pattern.
Dismantling many modern appliances need detective skills...
Domestic standard shredders produce a lot of dust and small paper pieces that must be periodically cleaned out if efficiency is to be maintained and paper is very abrasive and soon dulls blades causing the motor to need to work harder.
Once cleaned out a brief spray with a silicone dry lubricant will restore performance but leave it for a while after spraying to allow the flammable propellant to disperse.

Spl-1506x shredder only runs in reverse
Unplug the shredder... Take the top off and turn it upside down. Use a screwdriver to take the lower cowling off and look at the motor. If the mounting area where the motor sits looks melted at all, the machine is toast. If the motor mounting area looks good, look at the slot where the paper is inserted... there should be a sensor (that "sees" the paper when you insert it) at the paper slot. Check to see that the sensor isn't damaged.
