Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

SOURCE: The shredder jammed (too much paper) then stopped

Chances are, the overfeed caused the teeth of the gear that operates off of the motor to break.
This is very common in less expensive machines. I don't know if OM will let you return it because I don't know there policy. Most of the time retailers will attribute broken gears to abuse, which in turn is not warranted. These machines are mainly mass produced in China and obviously are very cheap. The labor and part (s) to repair are more expensive than replacing the machine.
If you do, look for a higher quality German machine i.e. Intimus, Olympia, HSM or Dahle. They cost more but they have a nationwide service arena and parts are always available.

SOURCE: Our shredder is making a loud, grinding noise.

simply try resetting the machine. unplugging it waiting for about 30 seconds then plugging it back in, also is the unit mounted properly on the unit? It might be one of the gears that is not broken...if you have a warranty now would be a good time to call them as they will fix or replace the part for the unit.

Makes grinding noise and does not pull the paper in or shred. I have pulled out all bits of paper stuck between the teeth. I'm afraid this thing is toast


This type of shredder can get clogged so badly, the material has to be removed with a utility knife. This is especially true if someone has tried to shred coated stock or, worse yet, credit cards. The noise you are hearing is the mechanism bouncing over clumps of residue jammed in-between the grinding "teeth".

Why is my ID Armor ID-XC200D making a horrible noise when I shred?


kkrenn641:

That "horrible noise" is probably caused by the shredder gears meshing improperly. If you disassemble it again and look carefully at the gears, you will most likely see that some are not mating properly... Usually the motor gear and the first idler gear that meshes with the motor gear. If those two gears seem to be separated a bit, or slightly mis-aligned look carefully at where the motor mounts, and you may see that the plastic "bed" where the motor is mounted has melted from heat from the motor. This is caused by using the shredder too long without letting the motor cool down. You may be able to shim the motor housing to realign the gears, if you have the patience!

I have a Royal RL170MX shredder. It has started


Try putting some oil on a sheet of paper and then shredding the paper with oil on it.
If that dosn't fix it....take cover off....(with the unit unplugged.) and check plastic gears in drive train.

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.

Shredder makes a horrible sound when shredding.


Just put a lightweight shredder oil on some paper and shred the paper...do this a number of times this will get the oil down into the cutting shafts.

REALLY loud grinding noise


If it doesn't work at all, there is a reset button for the unit. After it is reset keep the cutters lubed.

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.
