This shredder will always shut down if you have a lot of shredding to do. Under these circumstances, the machine will automatically shut down because it's overheating. What I usually do is stick a piece of paper into the "mouth". When the shredder is cool enough, it will shred the paper and let me know it's OK to continue shredding.
