pencil sharpener won't stop running


probably a piece of lead stuck on switch. Unplug unit, shine a flashlight into it and see if you see anything other than the sharpening head(s).

How do I change the blade on a iPoint evolution pencil sharpener?


Have you tried unscrewing the small circle that you insert the pencil into? Once that part comes off the blade should be more exposed.

help with my Royal p70 electric pencil sharpener and I can't seem to get anywhere... A lead is broken in the sharpening gears and I don't know how to take apart the sharpener to remove it.. Ca


Turn sharpener upside down. On the bottom, you will see 6 black dots. Four of them are Legs while the middle two are covers to two screws. Peel the stickey cover off the middle two, exposing two phillips head screws. Once the two very long screws are out, the entire unit will fall out of the casing. You may have to push in the small plastic locking devise at the bottom. Good Luck!
