My bosch 2200 axt was happily shredding away when it

Customer Question

My bosch 2200 axt was happily shredding away when it stopped. I assumed it had overheated and left it to cool down. It makes a humming noise now when I try to switch it on for about 5 seconds but then it switches itself off! What should I do?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: 2200 hp AXT S6(4/6min) //200w s1is what it says on the side, I got it from a friend so I don't know how old it is!
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The humming noise is the motor. It is either jammed or the motor has failed. Does anything appear to be jammed in the unit?

No it is entirely clear. I have decided to go elsewhere for advice so please don't contact me again. How do I get myself off the service?
