Your Fellowes p600c-2 shredderappears to have the same problem I had, it would run in reverse but would not shred new paper. I removed the 6 screws that are visible on the top assembly, but could not get the top assembly to come apart. There is a seventh screw hidden under one of the adhesive labels. I removed that screw and was able to disassemble the shredder. The plastic trigger mechanism that starts the shredder when paper is put in was stuck. I freed the trigger mechanism and reassembled the shredder. Now it works fine.

My shredder worked fine but now when I turn on it does not stop running and does not shred paper ?

Most shredders will have a shred and a reverse setting. Is it running in reverse? Has the bin been emptied? With the power off, you can remove the bin and manually pull excess shredded paper jammed in the cutting heads -watch out, sharp metal . Once cleared run single sheets for the first minute to help clear rollers.

Overload light stays on

Most likely the cutters are still stuffed with paper shreds and needs to be dismantled and cleaned

My paper shredder AS1210CD was overstuffed and now it will only go in reverse and will no longer feed for shredding

Could be a faulty component on electronic control printed circuit of Aurora shredder. Reverse bypasses this circuit. If it works in reverse motor is probably fine. You may want to make sure that optical eye in paper pass is clean and also that the lamp indicator for closed paper container functions well. A cause of a shredded gear as suggested in previous answers would probably cause a whining sound but that is not a symptom you described. Take it to a repair lab of a dealer selling new shredders of this brand.

Only runs in reverse

I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

Jammed in Auto, but works fine in reverse. How to unjam?

Continue to alternate between auto and reverse a number of times. Try to shred narrower pieces of paper at opposite ends to see if it can trigger the auto trigger wire. All else fails, carefully take the shredding part apart and you may find a hugh paper jam underneath.

You shredder needs a new shredding head. I'm sorry to say. You will be better off getting a new shredder. I am a senior level shredder technician in CO. I have seen this problem many times and it is an expensive repair. Hope this helps. If you have further questions please respond.
