My champion shredder had too many papers go thru because I didn't see the enclosure in one of the flyers. the shredder has now stopped. I have tried to pull the paper out but I reverse the wheel and now the paper is stuck behind the the wheel where I can reach. The motor is now ona humming sound. Are there screws on either end that I can remove the top? Please give advise n what to do. This is not and old shredder.

When you insert the paper the shredder is only cutting the outside edges, the middle part comes out crimpled but still in tact.


The center cutting blades end up cutting more paper than the ones on the edges. It could be they are just dull.

Shredders are supposed to be lubricated with a special oil. If not available, some manufacturers will recommend vegetable oil.
I just put some on a couple of sheets of paper, and shred them. This is supposed to be done on a regular basis.

If items that are sticky have been shredded, the spaces between the cutters could be filled up. Some envelopes are padded with. Thin bubble wrap. That stuff will mess up a shredder.

How do I fix my blades on my shredder?


Try running a layer of aluminum foil between two sheets of paper. See if it shredds, If it does, do it a couple of times, then use shredder oil. It might help to both sharpen the blades, and to keep them sharp longer. It works on cutting blades for scrapbooking cutters and scissors...

Why is the fellowes blade still rotating even when there is no paper?


It is possible that a small shred of paper is lodged at the sensor underneath the cutting blade.
    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers or use canned air and blow the edges of the blades.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse.
    • 3 Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

My royal shredder will shred paper just fine but now it won't shred a credit card. any ideas?


Silly question if it shreds paper fine but....when did you last oil the machine.???
Cross cut shredders need to be regularly oiled..( pour some shredder oil across the cutting blades).
It may just be that the credit card is too thick!

When you put paper in it starts to shred for about 1/4 inch then goes to reverse. No jams that I can see. Can run forward and reverse without paper with no problem. Sensor problem?


No mention of make or model however this holds true for all shredders.... especially if its a "cross-cut" shredder; put some shredder oil onto the cutting shafts where you insert the paper this will help get rid of some of the build-up that occurs due to the shredding process...also give the "eyes" in the middle of the "throat" a clan with a soft cloth( unplug the machine first or it will start to run and take your cloth in.) Occasionaly shrd a sheet of paper with some shredder oil poured directly onto the paper..this will help lubricate the cutting blades. Lastly...only shred up to about 70% of the rated cpacity..this will result in fewer jams an longer machine life.

Ran something with stickers through my shredder, now it won't run


Check and see if the cutting blades are turning when the shredder is running...if the cutting blades are not turning then you probably have stripped a gear inside...you will have to open it to check.

Machine won't shred. Does turn on, and goes in


You dont say make or model so...get some shredder oil into the cutting teeth where you insert the paper...especially if its a x-cut shredder..make sure once in a while you shred a piece of paper with some of the oil poured onto the paper for lubrication of the cutting blades.

Paper gets stuck on the blades so it does not shred the paper all the way


Your shredder may be getting dull ... there is no practical way to sharpen the cutting blades.

Shred fewer sheets at a time and use shredder oil available at the big box store and other fine establishments. Follow package directions when applying the shredder oil.

I hope this helps

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

Cutting problem


Pour some shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper...do this a few times to get the oil down into the cutting blades.
