I've had this shredder for less than 24 hrs and used it less than 30 minutes. It worked fine for about 10 minutes of off-and-on shredding, but now beeps shortly after I turn it on, and it shuts off the blades. The booklet that came with it doesn't even tell me what the beeping is supposed to warn me about, so I have no idea what the heck is wrong. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

If the blades rotate then the paper should go in...just be sure the blades are turning in the forward direction and not in reverse.Also make sure you lubricate the blades with shredder oil.

How to pack

The top of the unit that contains the motor comes off and after you have emptied the basket you can set the unit into it sideways. If you still have the packing material use it or just put some crumbled newspaper for protection.

This video on YOUTUBE shows a new shredder being unpacked and it will give you a better idea.

No...if it overheated and shut off..then afer about 20~30 mins it should be cooled back down if its going to work...if the Pcb inside has blown you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

I have a Royal VF1000MF shredder. While shredding

Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More assistance with paper shredder oil here:

If you can't get the paper shredder back to good condition it looks like you might have to get a new paper shredder. Great place to learn about new paper shredders here:

Royal CIA12 crosscut shredder overload light came on.

Unplug immediately and wait 20 mins to see if motor will "cool-down"...when plugged back in hopefully the Overload light will be OFF....unless you have it completely jammed up in which case try running it in reverse if the overload light is OFF.
If the overload light wont go out you may need Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for further parts assistance.

Royal VF1012mx Shredder Runs and will not shutoff

Try using compressed air to blow off the sensors , as they may have paper dust on them, I f that doesn't work try Alcohol and a Q tip to clean the sensors, as alcohol leaves no residue.
Please be sure to unplug the machine before attempting any repairs.

Royal 15mx only works in reverse after clearing jammed paper

try resetting the shreddar, unplugging it waiting for about 20 seconds and then plugging back in. Check to make sure there is no paper or paper clips stuck in the shreddar, make sure the unit is properly mounted on bin, the overheat light isn't on is it? if none of this helps and you have a warranty on your shreddar now would be a good time ot call them as you might have a hardware problem.
