Unit powers on, but the shredder tines won't run.

The unit will power on and you can her a click sound (sensor) when paper is placed in feed slot, but the shredding tines do not activate or turn. Not sure where the problem lies.

If you cant hear the motor running but you hear a click when you insert the paper it sounds like the eyes are ok so its likely the pcb thats defective...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

How do I fix my auto feed, which has stopped working?


Use a flashlight to examine the shredder from the top and look for a shred of paper blocking the slot. The shred may also be blocking the sensor. If you don't find anything, turn the shredder upside down to examine the shredding mechanism from the bottom.

My shredder worked fine but now when I turn on it does not stop running and does not shred paper ?


Most shredders will have a shred and a reverse setting. Is it running in reverse? Has the bin been emptied? With the power off, you can remove the bin and manually pull excess shredded paper jammed in the cutting heads -watch out, sharp metal . Once cleared run single sheets for the first minute to help clear rollers.

OUR FELLOWES CROSS CUT SHREDDER WILL KEEP ON RUNNING AFTER THE PAPER HAS BEEN SHREDDED. ARE THERE SENSORS THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE COVERED IN PAPER DUST?


If you look into the slot you feed the paper into, you should see a two little bumps that are facing each other in the center of the slot. These are the sensors that tell the unit to turn on/off. You can try cleaning them with a paper towel or long q-tip. If this does not fix it, then the sensors will have to be replaced. Most Fellowes machines have a 3-year warranty, you can call Fellowes at 1-800-955-0959 to see if yours is under warranty.

Only runs in reverse


I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

The Auto-On switch does not work. I have to manually turn the shredder on and then feed paper into the slot. It feeds and shreds the paper just fine, but I have to manually turn it off to stop it. All of...


There must be an auto-on/off sensor in the middle of the paper entrance slot - either mechanical or optical.It needs to be cleaned from any obstructions like paper chads or paper dust.It this doesn't help,the sensor maybe defective and it needs to be replaced.

Shedder one works


This is an issue with the paper feed sensor which may be a electronic eye or a mechanical switch if it is mecanical you may just have to jiggle the switch a few times, occasionally paper may get stuck behind it not letting it activate. If it is electronic you have bad sensors or bad pc board and you'll have to contact the manufacturer for further info.

Automatic Shredding


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.
