Shredder power does not come on.

I believe someone put to much paper in the Rayal 1610X. I do not have a manual. Need some solutions or links to a maintenance or operations manual. I bet there is a fuse somewhere but I do not know where. Thanks in advance. Please email me with solution

Remove the waste bin..inside there will be 4 screws holding the cutting head onto the container..remove those then you can lift the cutting head off the container.
Turn the cutting head over and remove the screws you see..normally 4~6 and the top will then lift off to allow access to the inside of the machine.

Won't shut off

You have an optic sensor that is blocked or shorted. If you take it apart you should be able to identify the problem. It is up by where the paper feeds in.

Printer only takes paper from one end resulting in a paper jam

I would not have believe this if I have not actually experienced it. Today, my Canon PIXMA MP470 started feeding my paper crooked, to the right where the feed roller is located. Did some research and found numerous people discovered foreign objects inside their printers. Since I had tried numerous other solutions, such as maintenance cleanings from the printer control area. I decided to unplug the printer, turn it upside down and shake it, hoping to dislodge a foreign object. It didn't work. I then took compressed air and sprayed vigorously inside the printer, and tried it again. It didn't work. I then took some card stock (the type used for making greeting cards), put it into the printer and began printing a word processed document - just something to get the card stock to enter the printer. I manually forced it into the printer as it started to print, then after the card stock was about two inches into the printer I manually pulled the card stock back, and THERE IT WAS! My memory card insertion slot protector from my netbook! Thank you Jesus! It is a small piece of black plastic that had fallen from the top of my printer, where I had foolishly placed it while I was using the memory slot in my netbook. Printer works great again! I hope this helps someone!

How do open the machine to add the lubricant?

Best way to lubricate is just to put the oil in an "S" pattern on a sheet of paper and shred just that one sheet. My have to do that a few times if its never been lubricated.

I purchased the Royal crosscut shredder 2 months ago, and recently put some papers in to shred. Nowhere near the 12 pages it said I could. However, there is paper stuck in the slot that didn't go...

"Manual does not tell me what my warranty is, and the people here who service say I need that info."

I am assuming it is the Royal 1610X Heavy Duty 12 Sheet Commercial Crosscut Shredder
You purchased an expensive shredder and it should have a warranty to match.

Frankly, I would not waste any time worrying what the service people say.
The warranty period on such machines should be written on the purchase receipt, and the retailer is responsible for making sure this warranty is honoured.
Unless of course you bought it on eBay.

I would try to just return it and get my money back, or at the least get a replacement.

Good luck.

The last one I took apart you had to approach it from the bottom. Remove the lower bin, then start working on screws on the bottom of the shredder. The top part should then come off so you can get to the fuse.
