Sounds like the cutting wheels have something jammed inside them , can you take it bak and return it ? or open it up and see if anything looks bad inside ?

SOURCE: Shredder will not start when paper is inserted.

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!

Testimonial: "This confirms my fears. The motor is fried. "

SOURCE: shredder

Check for stuck paper and remove if any. Then check if motor is ok with a multimeter and also main switch.

SOURCE: the shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.

Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

There is a high, loud buzzing noise when you feed more than one sheet into the shredder. The paper doesn't feed and the shredder needs to be unplugged to stop the noise. Do I need a new one?


With power removed, inspect the shredding mechanism and remove all residue. If you shredded coated paper or plastic in the past, you may have to scrape out the remains.

What kind of oil is used on the royal orca 9512x?


The shredder does not use oil. The noise probably relates to something jammed in the shredding mechanism or one or more damaged shredding elements.

Yesterday when i was using it it started to make a really loud noise. reverse makes the normal noise but on auto it sounds bad. i cleaned out the inside but there is still paper stuck that i cant pull out....


It will not hurt to pour some lightweight shredder oil onto the cutting shafts....depending on how much you use the machine this should almost be part of a regular operation... I normally suggest to customers to pour the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper in an "S" pattern and then shred the sheet of paper....also shredders will work more reliably if you only shred about 70% of the rated capacity...less strain on the motor and parts and this results in fewer jams and longer machine life.

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred


Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

Shredder make loud grinding sound when shredding 1 sheet of paper.


sounds to me like you have a gear going or already gone out. You might want to take it apart and check out the gears. It's not to hard to take them apart or put them back together. Just keep track of how everything is positioned.

I was shredding paper when it started making a loud grinding noise and wouldn't accept any more paper. I've tried running it back and forth, but it only goes, maybe half way, either way, and it still...


This is a very common problem. Go out to the hardware store and buy some silicone spray. With the shredder unplugged, spray a good amount of the silicone inside all of the teeth and try to get all sides.

Plug it back in and work it back and forth a few times. It should work better with less noise now.

Olympia Shredder Jammed and not working


likely a spacer has broken, if you can see the underside of the cutting heads you will see a spacer or two hanging out, If this is the case the heads will have to be bebuilt or replaced.

Won't pull paper


Hi,

I have the same shredder with a different problem. Maybe we can help each other.

It sounds like you have paper jammed in the shredding mechanism. I've cleaned paper jams out of mine quite a few times. The first and most important step is to make sure the shredder is unplugged. Hold the unit up to look through the shredding slot. Some of the openings between the opposing shredding wheels will be filled with paper. Using a small screwdriver (narrow blade at least 3 inches long) you can gently push the paper through. It works best if you can us a pair of needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper out the other side. It takes patience, but it works. Good Luck.

My problem is that after I opened mine up, I turned it over to shake out shreds of paper. When I did this, the entire works fell out of the case and all of the wires disconnected from the 3-way switch. Can you look in yours and describe how the wires are connected to the 8 contacts on the switch. (a digital photograph would be GREAT!

I hope we can help each other.
