Omnitech Paper Shredder

Hi everyone,
I have an Omnitech Paper shredder that is no more than 4 years old and the motor seems to have kicked the bucket and burnt out. I was thinking of repairing it but it is far from repairable. I called Omnitech and they are unable to send me a replacement motor and suggested I buy a new paper shredder.
Before I go ahead and do that, does anybody have any suggestions on where I can look to find a new motor for my paper shredder? It would be sad to throw a 4 year old machine in the garbage because of one small part :( . Any help would be appreciated!!

How much was the shredder? Also it's always good to lubricate your shredder. Have you been doing that?

Shredder was $120 originally from Staples and was always lubricated. I used to always open it up at least once a year and even lubricated parts that were not easy to reach, such as drive gears.
