SOURCE: Shredder won't shred any more.

I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

SOURCE: jam

I have a similar problem. I took the shredder head and gear box apart and found two stripped gears. True, the gears are plastic unfortunately (which is why they stripped.)

The gears are simple to get at and to replace. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of gears for this unit (there are 3)?

If so, could you, please, email me w/ that information? (pterocarpous@yahoo.com).
I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.

SOURCE: jammed shredder

try shredding a old card, carefully but forcibly push the jammed plastic strip through the teeth.
might be faulty alignment of teeth, a factory defect!

SOURCE: shredder that sounds but doesn't feed

My Royal VF1000mx crosscut paper shredded would not feed. I removed all jammed paper I could see. The green "auto" feed light would go on, but no grinding or turning of gears would occur. I put some shredder oil in the paper feed slot. Now the "auto" green light goes on and the gears are turning, but they are not pulling in any paper, credit card, or CD. The auto reverse light goes on for a second or two when I put the switch to reverse, but the paper, card, or CD is not pushed out either.

Also, I cannot locate my manual. Is there some way I can download another one?

I have the Infoguard SX100M Axeus, sold by Staples.
Only the reverse was working, UNPLUG and open back cover, the paper mechanical switch was working fine, red side switch, the gears and fuse were all ok, I think something on the circuit board was fried.

I switched the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when I switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred. Its working now, only in reverse.

My royal shredder js1100 will only shred in reverse.


Simple to solve!
Get some longnose pliers or strong tweezers.
Unplug the beast. You do not want to shred your finger nails, or your fingers.
Flip the mechanical part upside down. You will find small pieces of papers near the rollers. Pull them out with tweezers or pliers.
Keep hands out of harm\'s way, plug shredder and make it run in reverse for 1/10 of a second.
Unplug and remove more paper impacted in between rollers.
Repeat last two steps until no paper is seen by the rollers.
Plug and continue shredding your papers

Piece of advice. Do not shred your credit cards in shredder. Scissors are cheaper and do not mess your shredder!

How do you remove the top to see the gears in a Royal 16CDX cross cut paper shredder. The overload message is displayed, and I don't know how to get it unjammed.


a possible solution is to UNPLUG the unit, reach in from underneath and start pulling stuck paper out. On mine (different model) I can remover the paper receptacle bin and reach up to remove stuck paper. this usually is caused by overloaded bin pushing shredded paper back up to cutters because it is overfull......BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST !!!!!

My royal shredder will shred paper just fine but now it won't shred a credit card. any ideas?


Silly question if it shreds paper fine but....when did you last oil the machine.???
Cross cut shredders need to be regularly oiled..( pour some shredder oil across the cutting blades).
It may just be that the credit card is too thick!

I tried to shred a credit card and now its jammed. How do I get it out? Thanks.


Unplug it and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Open the top and carefully remove the bits of credit card with needle nose pliers. You may want to wear gloves to protect your fingers from the sharp edges of the shredder.
