Sadly, and unlike my earlier Fellowes model, this shredder is not "jam proof." I've been careful not to load more than three or four sheets of standard weight paper at a time, and I hadn't had any issues until I tried to put in two envelopes at a time. Both envelopes contained only a single sheet of paper, so I put the envelopes in vertically, side by side. There was still space on either side of the opening and the envelopes didn't overlap, yet the shredder jammed. Nothing short of pulling the envelopes out, which took considerable effort, solved the problem.
I like the shredder as it's a bit smaller and has considerably quieter operation than my former Fellowes shredder, but I'm rather disappointed with the recent jam, especially considering the light weight of the items that got jammed. I lubricated the shredder after assembling it, and it hasn't required additional lubrication as yet because it hasn't gotten much use. So I was taken aback at the jam that required sheer brute strength to resolve. I'm hoping that jam was just a fluke. But having had this shredder for only a week, and taking care not to overload it or operate it for more than a few minutes at a time, I'm now a bit concerned about how it will hold up. Still, I'm counting on the usual Fellowes quality and hoping I'll get years of use out of this model, with proper care.
Update 11-28-15 - In addition to the problem with the bin not seating properly, the machine isn't able to feed 16 sheets at once as advertised. You can feed maybe 6 or 7 at once. Also, the shredder gets really hot and overheats way more than it should - and I'm using the machine correctly. Several times the machine shut down for overheating. I waited the 30 minutes or so until the overheating light went out and then began shredding again. Within 5 minutes the machine shut down again for overheating! We have several Fellowes shredders at work (Industrial ones) and they're great, that's why when I went to buy a home shredder I chose Fellowes. But I'm really disappointed in the performance of this particular model.

It also arrived a day early than scheduled.
It took less than a minute to set up and I shredded 2 bin fulls immediately and used the oil as recommended to lubricate the shredding components. Highly Recommended I can see this in my office for years to come. Great to see quality in the office. Purchased the oil to keep blades sharp too.
That is why we purchased again.
