Check for a clogged shredding mechanism. Remove every scrap of shredded material. Also, do not believe that touted "16-sheet" capacity. You will be lucky to be able to process 2-3 sheets without constant clogging.

there has to be something blocking the sensor that turns it on. maybe a pc of tape or something. unplug it before you go sticking anything in there.

There is a bin interlock switch that has to be closed for the shredder to shred. If the shredder mechanism is separate, look for a slot on the underside.

Not sure but check for staples that are jammed where the new ones go in. i had one single staple which stuck in and would not let the new ones come out.

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.
