Question about Tech Solution TS-2550 Shredder

Open Question

My TS model 2550 paper shredder nylon gear that connects to the motor shaft is worn. I need a replacement. Is there any place where it can be obtained? Thank for the assitance you may give.

The motor runs great and is very powerful, however the gear that connects to the shaft is worn out and as soon as paper is fed the gear slips and the cutters stop shredding. I need to replace this nylon gear. Where can be obtained?

SOURCE: My shredder keeps running and won't stop in on/auto mode

Does the shredder have the electronic eye to sense paper? Sometimes dust will collect on the sensor causing it to keep running.

SOURCE: Shredder suddenly runs only in reverse

Do you hear the motor moving in both directions? I just had the same problem with mine. On mine, you can hear the motor moving in both directions but it would only move the shredder teeth in reverse and the teeth would not move going forward. I took the unit apart and found out that the gear right next to the motor shaft was rounded out in the middle. The solution would be to get a new gear or gears if you can get them. Make sure you inspect all the gears to see if there is a lot of play. You might have to replace more than 1 gear. What I did on mine, was take a brass tubing that was just a little larger than the shaft, drill out the center of the bad gear and press the tubing into the center of the bad gear. This took up the extra play and my Tech Solution TS8000 is working again. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me at

Plastic gear is wore out. the motor shaft wore it

My friend, if the gear is worn out, your machine is worn out. By the time you get and in stall this part, you can purchase a new machine.

There is a possibility that Royal will sell you the part ... you could check with them. I have never had luck repairing any but LARGE COMMERCIAL shredders. Home and small office shredders are not worth the effort to repair.

Makes noise but won't shred

Had the same prob with a Schneider shredder. The roll pin that secures the nylon driven wheel to the blades shaft was sheared. Easy fix in a way but original pin was a metric size.

Ts 4500 blades not moving

From the sound from your description, it is Probably a cracked gear or a worn bushing.

To get a better idea, you would have to take it apart to see what is going on inside.
Good luck

Does not feed paper

Had the same problem. The gears inside the shredder have worn out. I overfed the shredder with too much paper and caused the nylon gears to slip and strip away the teeth. Now the motor won't engage the cutters when you attempt to feed the machine. If your handy you can take it apart, find the gears, contact the manufacture and have them send you out a new set for that model. If not, then you will need to buy a new shredder. In my case, they sent out new gears, it took forever to receive, and when I did get them one gear was the wrong size. I had them send out a new one, and again after weeks it was still the wrong gear, even after sending them pictures! I am now buying a new shredder, and I am spending a bit more to get a more robust machine that can handle more of the workload I need.
