www.auroracorp.com is the website on the front of the manual.
The manual reccomends turning the machine off and using a stiff peice of card stock or index card to clear the paper from the shredder in front of the "eye".

Unfortunately that's the price you pay for a low end shredder. The unit works great for low or moderate usage for about a year. The first thing to fail is the photo eye that detects the presence of paper in the cutters. The obvious work around is to mannually turn off the unit when finished.

If it's over 1 year old, replcae it.

If you shred for too long in a single session it'll get too hot and shut itself off for a while to cool down. Keeps from overheating the motor or worse sparking paper shreds and dust into igniting.

Just imagine shredding away one day for an hour and all of a sudden your shredder catches fire and ignites all of your shredded paper and paper dust! Well, not with this bad boy... It doesn't like fire. It's a cool cat.
