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

SOURCE: SHREDDER INDICATOR KEEPS COMING ON WHILE SHREDDING

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.

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn


We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
