Can I get a user manual on line since how to unstuck instructions are in the manual. Refers to Royal PX1201 paper shredder.


Most jams are pretty much the same. First, try running the blades in REVERSE, that is done by using the on/off, selector switch.

If that does not solve the problem, Unplug the unit from the electrical, remove the top part from the basket. Pull out as much of the paper from the top and bottom that you can.

Replace the unit on the basket (make sure it is facing in the correct direction) and squirt, or lightly pour mineral oil (or machine oil, or something like WD-40) directly on the rollers and let it absorb into the remaining paper for a few minutes then try running the unit. If the motor does not come on, there is a fuse inside the machine that may need to be replaced.

Once you have solved the problem, you should oil the blades after every hour of use, it really makes it easier on the blades.

Also, there is an internal "heat switch" in the machine that will shut it down for about 90 minutes if the motor gets to hot. It is a safety factor in case you get something stuck, like a person wearing a tie, etc. After the machine has cooled down, turn the on/off switch to off and then back to on.

It stopped. I unplugged, and replugged, and still not working. What can I do?


There is a safety switch somewhere under the top end assembly that closes when the shredder is properly positioned on the basket. Check to ensure it is making contact.

MY SHREDDER IS OVERHEATING


Significantly Improve the Manufacturer's Suggested Duty Cycle, from Intermittent Use: ON=6min / OFF=30min to CONTINUOUS USE

ROYAL PX1201

My comments below are addressing these 3 issues:

1 How to permanently fix the motor overheating

2 How prevent motor thermal shut-down

3 How considerably improve the duty cycle


I am sharing this info with you with the hope it may save you some time.
Did purchase this unit from Costco about 6 years ago, in 2010.
This unit is functioning well today except its motor was overhearing and going into automatic thermal shut-down.
The ROYAL PX1201 model # is PCUA: 29127H-FE ; the Lot # 111155925.
Had to open the motor enclosure quite few times for cleanup and cooling.
Note the manufacturer's recommended duty cycle is ON=6min / OFF=30min. Nobody I know has 30min time to babysit a shredder.

In thermal shut-down mode the motor would not turn in any direction.
Today I modified the ROYAL PX1201 by adding an external 12V DC computer fan for motor cooling.
Cut a fan-placement, round, 3.25inch hole into the shredder top, at the upper right of the paper-insert slit: ____O
External, room-air is being forced into the motor-and-gear enclosure at all times, non-stop.
The paper-insert slit provides the hot-air exhaust.
The fan is an ordinary plastic PC fan: 12V DC, 0.12A=120mA, XYZ=72*72*20mm ; diagonal=101mm (hole-to-hole).
Fan cost is around $5.- and the fan power supply was a separate 12V DC adapter.
Did not have time to electrically connect the fan to the shredder's internal power supply.

Today I used the shredder continuously for 8 hours with neither overheating nor thermal shutdown.
Did fill TEN 13-gallon plastic bags with shredded paper / hand compacted confetti.
On average I shredded 6 letter-size, normal thickness pages at a time / per feed, continuous feed for about 8 hours.
