Need replacement gears - Destroyit 2602

Unit was dead - no power. Spent an hr taking it apart. Some teeth on large gear (2 total gears) broken. Removed the broken pieces and put back together. It now moves for 2 seconds and stops (can shred, but takes forever), so I want to replace the gear. Is there any merchant that sells replacement gears for this unit?

Motor runs but doesn't take in the paper

Most likely there is a stripped or cracked gear or a gear with broken gears inside. The only way to find out is by taking it apart and looking at it. There are about 3-5 gears inside and it would be easy enough to spot which one isn't turning. As always.. Safety first.. When taking apart the shredder, unplug it. When you want to test it, plug it back in and BE REAL CAREFUL because you have AC and will have moving gears, and shredder teeth.
If you don't want to go through the hassle then it might be time to buy a new shredder. Good luck.

We have a destroyit 2602 cross cut shredder, when we put the paper to be shredded in, the shredder would go on automatically, now that does not hapeen. we have to manually press the on button.

The paper sensing switch lever has bent or broken or the switch is faulty. Check between the wheels about in the middle of the shredder to see if you see if the little plastic finger. If the finger is visible and can be moved, the switch is faulty. REMEMBER TO UNPLUG IT BEFORE DOING ANY INVESTIGATION.

We have a model 2602 that jammed pretty badly. After unplugging we pulled out all the paper we could from both top and bottom and turned it back on. Now the motor runs but will not pull paper through. Is...

Check to see if both the upper and lower blades are turning. If the motor is running and the blades are not turning, then it is probably just a broken gear.

Gears won't turn in forward like a gear or shear pin is broken looking for a service manual

The plastic gears on either side of the drive motor have the teeth sheared off. I just have to find somewhere to buy the parts.

Royal SC800 power shredder I need the large metal gear.

I have the SC800 apart. My problem is not fixing it. I just need the part. The large gear which appears to be made of pewter has a couple of teeth missing. If I could find the part I can fix it. It's a very simple machine. If you know where I can get the part I would appreciate you letting me know..
