Question about Royal 150MX Cross-Cut Shredder

1 Answer

Royal 150MX shredder won't auto shut off. When powered on, always runs until powered off, even after all paper is shredded. Is this also a reset problem or something fouling a switch?

Prob could be the "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in. They just might need cleaning with a soft cloth( unplug machine first.) If that dos'nt fix it the eyes could be faulty or the pcb could be faulty....give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.

Keeps stopping with overload light on. How can this be fixed


The most likely cause is that the shredded paper, has tightly wrapped itself in the blades. One possible cause is by shredding labels (like Avery Labels) or any paper which has adhesive on it. (Causes it to attach the cut pieces to between the cutters.) It reaches a point where there is so much bound up on the blades that even a single sheet of paper will cause an overload. The fix is simple to describe, but difficult to accomplish. You must go in and manually remove all of the paper bound up in the blades. It's not easy, I found that using a needle nose pliers worked best. Lot of digging and tugging (paper will pack between the blades very tightly). Sometimes a small, slotted screwdriver will aid in being able to pry out bits and pieces (it's not going to come out in anything but small chunks; at best). Don't forget to unplug your shredder before you start; those blades are sharp. This happened several times with my last shredder *Royal), but not once with my current shredder (Fellows). I tend to believe that the better quality shredders are worth the extra money. But any shredder will become a problem if you shred labels (like Avery) or paper products that has adhesive on it. (Another common mistake is shredding junk mail that has any kind of adhesive associated with it. Best to open and check first.) One other thing, ALL shredders need to be oiled on a regular basis. They make special oil for this, you can usually find small bottles of it at Wally World or the like. Best practice is to squirt some shredder oil in a serpentine pattern. over a piece of paper to be shredded and run it through. Do this whenever you empty the shredder bin. (Important for the life of your shredder.)

ROYAL 150 MX WILL ONLY TAKE 2 SHEETS


Have you ever "oiled" the machine.
ALL cross-cut shredders need to be oiled to help clear out the paper dust and debris generated during the shredding process.
Pour some shredder oil across the cutting shafts while it is running and occassionaly put some oil onto a sheet of paper as you shred it.

I have a Royal 150MX Crosscut Shredder and I have to stop every few minutes to get the accumulated strips of paper off the cutting heads. Why does it keep wrapping? When it wraps the machine slows down...


OK first...15 sheets is absolute maximum; ie 1 more sheet and it dies!!
Manufacturers always rate machine to their "maximum". With shredders if you want longevity and the fewest jams it would be recommended that you run the machine at about 50% capacity.
Its pretty simle really..start with 1 sheet then 2 sheets and keep going until you hear the motor starting to "labour"....you shouldn't run much more than that.
Think of it like your car...it will do 100 mph...you know what it sounds like at that speed..engine going flat-out etc, etc...how long would your car last if you always drove it "flat-out"??? How many repair bills would you have..."or" if you drove your car at 50 ~60 mph its a lot easier on the car, lasts longer and with routine maintenance will have fewer breakdowns and repairs.
Now...routine maintenance on your shredder.....the 150mx is a cross-cut shredder; ALL cross-cut shredders should be "oiled" regularly...has your's ever been oiled????. Its a simple process...you get a bottle of "shredder" oil and pour some across the cutting blades to provide librication and help clear away the tiny pices generated in the shredding process. How frequently??? How much do you shred?? The more you shred the more you will need to oil it. The Royal shredder is a consumer machine designed for the home or home office use; for occassional shredding.

Royal 150MX When you put paper in it does not


If the cutting blades do not turn when it is running then you have likely boken a plastic gear inside.
You will have to open it up to see which one...then you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance and pricing.

Both sets of shredding gears turn and sensor and auto for both paper and media work. However, the intake function for both paper and media do not. This occurred after extracting paper following and...


Does the machine at least run...even in reverse!!
If it does not then you have likely lost the pcb ...you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts availability and pricing.

There is paper stuck in the shredder. I've tried shredder oil and a tweezer.


Alternate reverse and forward several times. Graphite powder or pencil lead along the engaged gear teeth may help. There is probably a "wad of paper" underneath where you can't see it. Be brave and take the shred head apart - pay careful attention so you'll know how to put it back together.

How to clean


As this is a "consumer" shredder, it should only need occasional lubrication.....Put some lightweight shredder oil onto a piece of paper and shred the paper......the more you shred the more you should lubricate.

Paper shredder jammed


Yes....this is a consumer model....NO BIN/BAG FULL INDICATOR....to keep costs down, you will just have to try to get the bin out a little at a time and slowly reach-in and "fish out the shredded paper...once you have enough out the bin will come out...hopefully the backed up paper has not jammed the machine and blown the PCB inside.....if it has give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Royal VF12mx shredder


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???
