Question about Adler Royal HT500X Shredder

1 Answer

Shredder rollers do not turn; motor works good; all gears go arou

Shredder suddenly did not work; took it apart; cleaned out the inside of it thoroughly and soldered a severed wire to the feed switch. The motor runs fine and all the gears go around when I feed a piece of paper into it, but the 2 roller shafts with the shredder teeth on them do not budge at all. As a result, the paper is not pulled into the teeth. There does not appear to be anything jammed in the teeth or disconnected at the gears. Is there some kind of a parts breakdown I could look at that would allow me direction when taking it apart and putting it back together. Any suggestions? What type of maintenance should I perform on it when I get it fixed? Thanks.

Will it work in reverse? Can you see the gears are they all moving? Is there a set pin?

SOURCE: Fellowes PS-70 Shredder jam

I used needle-nose pliers and regular pliers to pull out all of the jammed paper -- it took an hour but I finally got it. I never did find a release mechanism even after I took the top apart. Thanks anyway!

After clearing the jam (with the unit unplugged!), let the unit cool completely, then try using it again. A notice on the nameplate inside my unit says: "2 min on/4 min off." Apparently, a thermal cutoff keeps it from overheating by automatically preventing continued operation that might otherwise melt the parts. So heed the directions. I had the same problem with my NoviTech Model PS-026/B2 crosscut shredder (max: 5 sheets, 1 credit card). Also, make sure the motor mechanism is seated square and flush on the bin. I tried testing it out of the bin, and the green ready light wouldn't come on -- for a good reason: safety. (I still have all of my fingers, thanks to that!) Hope this helps.

check the cutter slot, there should have a micro switch with a level, that detect the paper when the paper is in the slot.
the micro switch may be dirty or some thing is preventing it from starting.

Rick,

This TS4500 shredder had been discontinued for more than 5 years. The factory did not make any spare parts for this model.

Thanks,

Motor runs but doesn't take in the paper


Most likely there is a stripped or cracked gear or a gear with broken gears inside. The only way to find out is by taking it apart and looking at it. There are about 3-5 gears inside and it would be easy enough to spot which one isn't turning. As always.. Safety first.. When taking apart the shredder, unplug it. When you want to test it, plug it back in and BE REAL CAREFUL because you have AC and will have moving gears, and shredder teeth.
If you don't want to go through the hassle then it might be time to buy a new shredder. Good luck.

GBC CC195 paper shedder not working. Dosen't do anything when inserting paper.


There is supposed to be a switch that is activated by the material inserted into the shredder. If it is stuck or broken, then only the manual buttons will operate the motor.

As a shredded user myself, I took mine to an office machine repair store and they fixed it for a very reasonable price (and they gave it a good cleaning at the same time.)

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?


That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

I have a Royal 150mx crosscut shredder. It started making a loud noise as if one part was hitting another. It kept working for a while (I shut it down twice to let it cool down when I got the overheat...


Most likely gears inside have been damaged...open up the cutting head... see what is broken ,then contact ROYAL at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

My shredder Royal RL170MX is not working,makes noise and everything,turn on but the paper is not going in,what can i do


If the motor sounds like its running but the cutting shafts are not turning then you have likely stripped the teeth off one or more of the plastic gears inside.
Take the unit apart to determine which gear/gears are damaged the contact ROYAL at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

P400c-2 fellowes shredder only runs in reverse no power in forward. everything mechanical is working fine.


I just had the same problem. I called the 800 # they asked for proof of purchase to replace if 1 year old. I did not have it so...... I took it apart ------ unpluged ! Only to find all gears are fine, service dept. said gears cause this problem, not so with mine. Remove top by pulling of base remove 6 screws on under side, played with the switch inside a bit and, it now works, do not know how long but for know it does. My opinion is the relay gets dirty, and you cannot clean it without talking whole thing apart.

You probably have the same problem we do.....the unit vibrated some of the mounting screws loose, causing the gears to disengage slightly and then strip one of them (plastic).....hence, no movement of the shredder, even though the motor is fine.  I myself am looking to Royal for a replacement gear.  I don't want to have to buy another one and it beats throwing the whole thing out....what a waste!  Maybe they should start using some glue on the mounting bolts!

Paper will not feed into machine


Most likely the sensor in the insertion area is not recognizing a paper when you try to insert it to be shredded.

Try to clean out the gears, and oil the grinders.

Clean around the insertion area to remove any debris from around the sensor. (Be sure to turn it off/unplug it first!).

If you can remove the shredder head/grinders from the body of the shredder box, turn it upside down and clean it that way as well.

Sometimes the little pieces of paper get clogged up inside the gears.

I got some of the dust spray with the straw...inserted the straw deep into the shredder grinder/gears and sprayed.  I got tons of stuff out.

My motor/grinder worked perfect after I did all this.

Good luck!
