1. Turn the shredder off and unplug it. You DO NOT want to be poking round in those sharp blades and have it accidentally switch on!
2. Take the top off the shredder and place it on a big piece of newspaper, or somewhere you can easily sweep up mess.
3. Begin by getting a pair of tweezers and taking pieces of paper from one end of the shredding blades. This will loosen it up and give you more room to get the rest out.

4. Carry on tugging the strips of paper out. It helps if you don't just pull a clump, but wiggle it from side to side. This will get the whole strip out, not just the top.
5. If any pieces are curled around the blades and you can't free them, cut them with a knife and then tug them out.
6. Once it's mostly cleared, put the top back on and switch the shredder on. Put it in Reverse Mode so it will spit the last pieces for you to remove.
7. If it's cleared out, continue shredding:)
Hope this Helps!

SOURCE: Infoguard shredder jam

When you set it to reverse, it Should propel the paper back out the top, where it's jammed. If it does not, remove power to the unit, and get ready for the long laborious process of removing the jam with a pair of tweezers. A hazard of paper shredders, maintenance can be a bit on the silly side.

SOURCE: Shredder motor seems jammed

must disassemble feeder unit and visual check for jam. The debris may be a part of the shredder that has broken off.

SOURCE: Fellowes P600C-2 Motor runs in reverse, but not forward

Take it apart and clean the switch with compressed air.

Be careful when you put it back together that you don't allow the wires to touch the fan.

You also have to make certain that the small plastic teeth that seperate when you feed paper are aligned properly.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Royal 15mx only works in reverse after clearing jammed paper

try resetting the shreddar, unplugging it waiting for about 20 seconds and then plugging back in. Check to make sure there is no paper or paper clips stuck in the shreddar, make sure the unit is properly mounted on bin, the overheat light isn't on is it? if none of this helps and you have a warranty on your shreddar now would be a good time ot call them as you might have a hardware problem.

SOURCE: Paper Shredder blades do not turn, even though motor is running

yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?

How do you removed jam paper in the schredder


1) pull what you can of the jammed paper out. Make sure the shredder is unplugged whenever trying to work on or in the unit.
2) Then liberally soak the remaining jam with shredder oil and let it sit for 15-20minutes.
3) Try to pull out what you can again. Use tweezers or pliers if available.
4) Then first start the shredder in reverse and then alternate for a few seconds between forward and reverse.
5) If it is still jammed repeat all of the steps as necessary.

Wont shut off I have to move switch to reverse then back to auto /on


in a lot of the models there is a switch in the middle of the slot where you put in the paper, right where the credit card shredder part is at. sometimes it's gets stuck. lean the shredder back and try tapping on the top. NOT BEATING on it just tapping it. in auto mode it should shut off once the switch jars loose. you may have to lean it forward also if the switch is in the front, just try both directions. you may need to unplug and turn the head over and check and make sure paper or plastic isn't stuck in the switch if it won't shut off at all. remember... UN PLUG IT BEFORE POKING AROUND IN IT!!!!

Paper has wrapped around the cutting blades and is packed in tight. How do I clean this?


    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
    • 3 Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

Royal sc120 shredder wont run.. Paper jammed in head and cannot remove it--no reverse or forward will work.


This is the most common problem..."too much paper".
If it won't go in either direction the only option is to open the cutting head of the machine(after unplugging) and to manually try to turn the gears to un-clog the paper.
Once you have cleared the paper from the cutting blades see if it still turns...see if any plastic gears have been damaged. Plug it back in and see if it runs...if it dosn't you may have blown the PCB in which case you should contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 regarding replacement parts.

Our shredder motor is working but it will not go forward to shred. It will reverse. I've unjammed every visible paper jam but still nothing. HELP!


If it wont run forward but does run in reverse you may have lost the PCB inside.... contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance and pricing.

I have a Royal CX 66 Crosscut shredder and attempted to shred 10 pages. The unit shredded 1/2 of the papers and the other 1/2 are stuck in the shredder; the reverse mode will not release the papers. Is...


The Royal cx-6 shredder is a small consumer shredder rated for "up to 6 sheets at a time" so yes it will jam with anything more that 6.
If running it in reverse won't work you will have to try to open it up and see if you can manually turn things to get the paper back out...there is no other way if it wont run in reverse...hopefully when you have the paper removed the machine will still function.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

The paper is stuck in the shedder and now it will not turn on/off


Try reverse, forward, reverse a few times. If thet doesn't work, unplug it, turn the shredding unit off and pick out whatever paper you can see, both top and bottom. Watch your fingers, the cutters are sharp.

Hsm 225.2 jerks in & out 2-3cm and wont eat paper!


try oiling the cutters...this helps out with the shredding of paper...also make sure properly mounted on bin, try resetting the shreddar, unplugging it and then plugging back in...check to make sure no paper or anything stuck in shreddar and make sure no broken gears..if this doesn't work and your shreddar is under warranty it would be a good time to call the warranty company

Royal 9 x cross cut shredder wont go through even two pages thick


Put some shredder oil on the paper you are shreding...shred a number of sheets with oil on them so that the oil gets down into the cutting shafts/teeth.
