Our HSM 225.2 shredder has quit shredding papers

When we put the machine on forward to feed papers to be shredded it doesn't run the papers thru so it's not shredding. The reverse works just fine on it

SOURCE: hsm 225.2 jerks in & out 2-3cm and wont eat paper!

try oiling the cutters...this helps out with the shredding of paper...also make sure properly mounted on bin, try resetting the shreddar, unplugging it and then plugging back in...check to make sure no paper or anything stuck in shreddar and make sure no broken gears..if this doesn't work and your shreddar is under warranty it would be a good time to call the warranty company

The schredder runs backward, but forward does not.


Take care, because this thing can also shred your fingers.
Remove the plug from the outlet and try to remove the paper under the rolls. Us a tool, not your fingers. It even would be better, if you could put the top upside down, so you could see where the bulk of paper is clothing the wheels and the sensor.
I think you already emptied the bag under the shredder, because the paper full sensor also prevents the shredder from running forwards.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

So i put in 9 or 10 sheets to shred and it has jammed. I know, i know yet it won't reverse or go forward the blades are stuck, I got out as much paper as i could and it's frozen. please help me!


Hi,
The only thing left to do now would be to take the bottom cover off... then take apart the assembly and pull out one of the blades to get the rest of the paper out...then reassemble the machine...
Hopefully you have not totally ruined it...

My shredder overload light comes on immediately with only one sheet of paper inserted and it won't go.


Try running the machine in reverse and putting some shredder oil onto the cutting blades to loosen things up. Then try running the machine in the forward direction but hold the paper in the eyes but dont let it go into the shredding blades...see if it runs forward.!
If it will do this then slowly try paper 1 sheet at a time..but put some shredder oil onto the sheets of paper you are shredding.
If the overload light still comes on without even letting you shred 1 sheet of paper then you likely have another problem...maybe the motor or pcb..you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

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.

Red overload light is on


Try pouring some shredder oil into the throat where you normally insert the paper and run the machine in reverse.Put machine back into ready condition.
Put a piece of paper in the throat just enough so the machine should run but not all the way in so that the cutting mechanism catches the paper...all you want to do is make the machine run forwards but not actually be feeding in any paper.
If it wont even run in the forward direction you may have a pcb prob...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Shredding paper partially


Your cutters have spread apart this could be caused by overloading machine to many times or something may have cracked internally that held them in place.

Shredding no more


if the unit is pulling paper thru but not shredding your cutters have separated for some reason. If not pulling paper thru but machine is running you probally have a broken gear causing cutters to no longer turn you may hear a clunking or grinding noise or gear may be stripped if shredder sounds like it is spinning freely. Contact manufacturer for parts availability.

Sounds to me like a the main control board is fried. That smell was probably a resistor or a rectifier burning. The fact that you hadn't oiled the shredder in 3 years didn't help, probably put an extreme load on the drive motor. You might be better off, shopping for a new shredder, unless this is a high end industrial strength model.
