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

How can I clear a paper jam on a hsm securio b32 shredder when the reverse function does not clear it


On most shredders ideal unjamming would be by trying the reverse, if that fails there's 2 options: 1 - opening the unit by removing screws (usually 5) and using small narrow flat screwdriver carefully clearing out all the stuck paper/cardboard from in between two rollers, but be carefull and make sure the power cord is NOT plugged into wall socket. 2 - without dissassembling the unit spray some WD-40 into the shredders feed opening and let that cardboard soak for a while. WD-40 will soak into cardboard and any stuck paper and will loosen it, you might need to spray couple of times allowing to soak in between sprays, but this definitely does the trick. Once sprayed 2-3 times allowing to soak for at least 10 minutes between sprays simply swich the shredder on and use reverse and all stuck paper should come out. Be advised after unit was cleared you must use some spray oil to protect the blades. Once oiled allow unit to run in reverse for at least 2 minutes, the swich it off. 15-20 minutes later your shredder will be good as new!! Hope this helps ;)

I have a simple Royal paper shredder. Got paper stuck in it. Going back and forth the paper appears to be gone, and it grinds normally in reverse but going forward the green light is on but nothing will...


Does the machine even run in reverse???? Have you ever oiled the machine.???
Put some "shredder oil" onto the cutting blades while it is running in reverse then try running it forwards.
If you can hear the motor running but the cutting blades dont turn you will have to open it up to see what is broken.
For parts assistance you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

HSM AMA 125HS-6 Starts to shreed and abuptly stops. Red light comes on next to a circl symbol.


Thickness of papers is too much. Feed only 1-2 pages at a time.

To clear, pull paper back out. Run reverse, then forward, then feed 1 page at a time using a clean edge.

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.

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.

HSM 125.2hs Begins feeding then stops


There are three things that cause this problem.
1. a gear is broken which will cause only one cylinder to rotate.
2. on the non-driven side (opposite side of the gears) there is a electromagnetic sensor that rotates with the shaft. It detects rotation and overload. If this is out of place or damaged it will cause this symptom.
