    Start with a screw driver and upgrade to a hammer/saw combination? Seriously, though, can you find a manufacturer and model number on the shredder to facilitate finding a manual?

How do I remove paper stuck in my shredder????I have a Royal 10X Cut Paper Shredder. On label it has PCUA:29054E 10x 00324040. How do I take it apart to remove the wedged paper???

You may have to turn it upside down and go to work with tweezers and a utility knife to remove every bit of paper from the mechanism. I have found that 10X rating to be overly optimistic; the equivalent Royal shredder I am using currently groans and complains if more than a few sheets are fed in at a time.

In order to maintain a functional paper shredder, you should clean it out and oil it at least once a month(depending on usage) if not every time you fill it.
I would advise against trying to disassemble the actual blades to clean them out if that's what you mean by "take it apart."
What you can do is unplug the machine, lay the blades up and get a pair of tweezers and remove any large pieces of paper/shredding that might be caught in there.
After doing that you should oil the blades with any lubricant that your owner's manual recommends.
Most shredders suggest a non-aerosol/biodegradable oil such as vegetable oil.
Do not use WD-40 or other canned spray lubricants.
I've found that dripping the oil straight into the blades can be very messy so a good alternative is to lay out a piece or two of scrap paper and soak it in the oil. Then run the paper through the blades as normal.
They also sell varieties of this here:

It doesn't have to be a headache to maintain but proper care can make your shredder last a long time.

I have a paper jam in the cutting bar. I have reversed it but still can't free it. Can you help?

When you say you can't free it...does that mean the shredder wont turn in fwd or reverse,???
If it is totally siezed then you only course of action may be to take it apart and manually turn things by hand to clear the jammed paper.

My royal paper shredder is jammed. How do I unjam the shredder?

Normally try to run it in reverse while pulling the paper back out to assist the motor. If it won't even run in reverse then you will have to take it apart to manually clear the jam.

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred

Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here:

I have royal shredder and suddenly stopped. reverse side is working. There is no paper stuck in it. please help. Thanks

There are LED photo sensors in the feed path that detect paper. They can get a build up of paper lint or oil on them. The shredder needs to be taken apart and these need to be cleaned.

NoviTech Paper Shredder PS-045/B stops working after a while.

I have workrd on shredders for 17 years. you need to spray a light wait oil in to the paper shut. It is a catch 22 paper dust & paper builds up in them and the covers need to come off and be cleaned out or gears start stripping or braking.
good luck

Shredder won't accept paper on left side

If you think you have taken all the screws you may not know that most often there will be a hidden screw ot two under a sticker or a plug.It may be that your unit has tabs that simply need to be pulled apart. Unfortunately I only know Fellowes products but maybe this will help. Good Luck.

Shredding paper partially

Your cutters have spread apart this could be caused by overloading machine to many times or something may have cracked internally that held them in place.
