Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

It is likely that the jam-detecting switch is still activated, or is jammed in place instead of releasing, or is broken.

Take the cutting gear out, if you can, and check that switch, to make sure that it is not jammed still and in need of clearing. (If you need instructions in more detail, let me know.)
