Check to see if there's a little piece that broke off from the door. This would be the "safety interlock switch" or little thingy that pushes down the basket sensor. The basket sensor is located on the bottom front of the shredder. I bent a paper clip to hold down the metal switch (basket sensor) and taped it to the front of the shredder with scotch tape.

Is the shredder fully seated in the paper container, there is a switch there that must contact or the shredder will not work, it is a safety switch.

These Staples shredders are not serviced with replacement parts, so you will need to replace it.

probably find that some cutters have been damaged and are hitting each other rather than sliding past each other
using wd 40 is lubricating those cutters but as the lubricant is used by the new paper it becomes inefficient
get a quote for repairs but generally ( unless the machine cost is in the 4 figure area) it is not cost effective to repair
