Question about Royal 10X Shredder

1 Answer

Will turn on, run in reverse, but will NOT shred...

I have a relatively new Royal 10X crosscut paper shredder. I have not
abused it in any way. It has always been inside & kept clean. It will turn on
(Light comes on). It will run in reverse. It will NOT run when I put papers
in the slot. If I force a very light cardboard into the slot, it will run & then
stop before all of it is shred. How can I fix this??? Help!!!
I have exactly the same problem. I suspect it is the switch and it is marked 0206, it is a light switch of some sort.

    I must turn the shreader off to stop it, then turn it on to begin again. it stops on full bin. I can reverse/forward toggle and it will then stop, but then not run when I slide paper in either paper or cd slot. if we have power glitch, it will be running continuously when I find it.
    frustrating - help.

First try unplugging the power cord for ten minutes and see itf it reset.

Many model also have a reset button inside, find it and keep it pressed if the first solution did not work.

My royal sp12mx will work in reverse but nothing happens when i insert paper to shred. light is on


there is a very small lever between two cutters around the middle that activates a microswitch to turn it on when you offer paper to be cut
the problem will be in that area ( switch or lever broken) as it's purpose is to switch on the cutters
reverse is straight drive from the control switch

How do I remove paper stuck in my shredder????I have a Royal 10X Cut Paper Shredder. On label it has PCUA:29054E 10x 00324040. How do I take it apart to remove the wedged paper???


You may have to turn it upside down and go to work with tweezers and a utility knife to remove every bit of paper from the mechanism. I have found that 10X rating to be overly optimistic; the equivalent Royal shredder I am using currently groans and complains if more than a few sheets are fed in at a time.

How do I oil my royal crosscut shredder 1610X


To oil your shredder, squirt some shredder oil onto a piece of paper (don't completely soak the paper) that you wish to shred & feed this paper through your shredder.

I have a Royal CX 66 Crosscut shredder and attempted to shred 10 pages. The unit shredded 1/2 of the papers and the other 1/2 are stuck in the shredder; the reverse mode will not release the papers. Is...


The Royal cx-6 shredder is a small consumer shredder rated for "up to 6 sheets at a time" so yes it will jam with anything more that 6.
If running it in reverse won't work you will have to try to open it up and see if you can manually turn things to get the paper back out...there is no other way if it wont run in reverse...hopefully when you have the paper removed the machine will still function.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Shredder only operates in reverse


Check and try cleaning the "eyes" in the paper throat... if that dosn't fix it it could be the pcb inside...call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts help.

Shredder will not start when paper is inserted. switch is on auto. This happened after a long session of shredding


Two possible problems;
  1. Teeth underneath lid are jammed; sometimes (especially after a long session) although the papers go through, debris builds up and can get caught in the teeth; to clear unplug and with tweezers or a tina flathead screwdriver, pull out shreds of paper still caught
  2. Motor is overheated; once cool, try it again (move switch to reverse to see if motor is still working). If motor is working, see Step 1 for a jam; some jams can be cleared by running it in reverse. Royal doesn't recommend "long" shredding sessions. My unit recommends sessions of 20 pages or less. If you try to overwork the shredder, it will overheat and in some cases, fry the motor.
I hope this helps answer your problem. Best of luck!
