Most of the time the cutter wheels dry up you need to spray silicone base lubricant down the paper shout like Tri-Flow.

Shredder making a squelling noise


Royal shredders have a nylon worm drive gear that is designed to loose teeth rather than allow an overload to damage the whole gearbox. When the motor's worm drive hits an area where teeth have been removed it screams because it is no longer loaded!

This part can be replaced if you are handy with fixing mechanical devices and know how to safely do so. Spare internal parts can easily and quickly be ordered from Royal by calling 1-800-222-2310. I find their support people to be outstanding.

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!

Makes noise but won't shred


Had the same prob with a Schneider shredder. The roll pin that secures the nylon driven wheel to the blades shaft was sheared. Easy fix in a way but original pin was a metric size.

You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.
