Look into the machine as you try and shredding a single sheet of paper. Are the cutters rotating? If not then it could be that your machine has a damaged drive gear. The motor will still spin but will not have gear teeth to engage. It's time to call a tech in.
If they are turning, you may have something blocking the paper path.

Why does my paper shredder make a clicking sound when I try to shred a piece of paper?


Try putting a piece of paper in enough to start it running, but not so far as to go into the shredder. See if it will run for a minute or two. Sounds as though it may be over heating.

Shredder does not pull paper in anymore, it makes noise, does not shred


Add some paper shredder oil. A shredder needs oil to function properly, oil should be applied every month or more depending on how often you shred. Learn more here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

I have a Royal RL170MX shredder. It has started


Try putting some oil on a sheet of paper and then shredding the paper with oil on it.
If that dosn't fix it....take cover off....(with the unit unplugged.) and check plastic gears in drive train.

Paper Shredder problem Royal JMD500 paper shredder makes a banging noise and paper only shreds about 1 inch in and then stops. You must put machine in reverse to take paper out.


Sounds like shreddder gears are not staying aligned or somethhing is caught in the cutters.
The shredder has a sensor to detect when somethine is insert. Hol the sensor swith down and check for paper clips or staples in the roller/shredding teath. Good Luck and use a match book on the switch to wedge it..

Noisey Shredder


Have you oiled the blades? When was the last time it was serviced? There is an awful lot of paper shredds inside the unit. Motor bearings need lubrication. Gears need grease, etc. Put about a dozen drops of light oil directly down into the cutter left to right every half inch. I have used vegetable oil in a pinch.
