Make sure the top of the shredder is sitting on the bottom part correctly. There is a safety switch underneath the top that needs to match up with the piece on the bottom bucket, otherwise it will not allow the machine to turn on.

Shredder keeps running on auto

Unplug it and check to see if theree is any paper caught in the Start switch. Turn it Off, plug it back in and start in the Reverse mode. Then turn it Off and set the swich for On - shread.

If that doesn't work unplug it and find the start switch trip wire, Toggle it a few times with something thin - don't push too hard. You can also spray the switch the canned air used to clean keyboards. Plug it back n, start it in reverse then move it to shread.

My shredder stoped working

My shredder was under warranty--not officemax warranty--so I sent it back to the company that manufactured the shredder, at my expense. They sent me a new one at their expense. Had I added a few more dollars to the shipping for a new shredder. I never could get my to accept paper or lubricating sheet. Did not open the exchanged shredder until 2 days ago and so far it works, however the original one worked for about a week before stopping. I believe--should I have the need I will purchase a different brand.
I hope that helps.

Royal VF700 won't barely shred one sheet of paper. It givexs the overload red light when 1 sheet of paper has just barely started to be shredded.

Royal. Haven't heard of that brand. Could get in contact with tech service, but it's probably easier to grab a new paper shredder.
Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here:

Shredder is dead and brand new what should I do?

Hi there,

Well if your Shredder is completely dead then we suggest you to replace it, we hope that the Shredder is still under warranty as you says it is brand new......... It seems that the cutter motor is blown so first of all you can ask for warranty...... Please post comments for more help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Runs continuously when in the on position.

there is paper jammed in front of the sensor. it was likely caused by feeding too much paper into the shedder at one time and now a chunk of shedded paper bits it blocking the sensor from seeing that the shedder is clear

Oil leaks into bin

Do you have an automatic oiler on machine?
If so, drain the oil, unscrew the reservoir plug and wrap threads with teflon tape.
