Put in less thicknesses. Also, put them in in the center. If they are near the edge and they are at an angle, they will flip over themselves and double the thickness.
It is designed for 12 sheets of paper. They probably figure on 18 pound paper, not 20. Adjust what you put in to allow for this.

You have probably "fried" the pcb inside the machine.....this is a "consumer" machine...no more than 5 mins ON then 10 Mins OFF to let it cool down.....you should only shred about 70% of the MAX rating for the machine.

While attempting to feed paper overload light comes on and shredder stops


Over load light comes on only when you have either put too thick a bundle of paper or too hard. So reduce the thickness according to the hardness of the paper. Start with a few sheets of paper only. then increase the number of sheets till you find the shredder is struggling hard to do the job. That is your limit. If you exceed this limit then it would stop shredding and may even burn the motor ultimately.

Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper


Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.

Shredder motor runs but gears are not engaging and will not take up paper to be shredded. Model is Royal VF1012mx


I have the same problem and upon removing the gears I found one that is plastic and worn pretty bad. Replacement parts can be purchased at 1-800-222-2310. Part # VF1012MX-08 Gear #2
I advise purchasing the metal one.

Pour some shredder oil in the throat where you normally insert the paper...put some shredder oil directly onto 1 sheet of paper and try shredding 1 sheet. If it wont even shred 1 sheet I would ask is the shredder running???

Red overload light is on


Try pouring some shredder oil into the throat where you normally insert the paper and run the machine in reverse.Put machine back into ready condition.
Put a piece of paper in the throat just enough so the machine should run but not all the way in so that the cutting mechanism catches the paper...all you want to do is make the machine run forwards but not actually be feeding in any paper.
If it wont even run in the forward direction you may have a pcb prob...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.
