Repair. reverse is OK but will not shred


There is a light sensor that is blocked by the paper that tells the machine to turn on when paper is loaded for shredding, it is most likely blocked with debris for a previous shredding.

Use a flashlight to examine the shredder from the top and look for a shred of paper blocking the slot. The shred may also be blocking the sensor. If you don't find anything, turn the shredder upside down to examine the shredding mechanism from the bottom.

The schredder runs backward, but forward does not.


Take care, because this thing can also shred your fingers.
Remove the plug from the outlet and try to remove the paper under the rolls. Us a tool, not your fingers. It even would be better, if you could put the top upside down, so you could see where the bulk of paper is clothing the wheels and the sensor.
I think you already emptied the bag under the shredder, because the paper full sensor also prevents the shredder from running forwards.

Sometimes the sensor gets blocked by pieces of shredded paper. Unplug the unit and remove it from the paper bin. Turn it upside down and see if there are any "stray" pieces of shredded paper hanging on the unit. Remove the stray and replace the unit onto the bin making sure it is properly seated. If that is not the problem, try "tamping" the shredded paper into the bin and by doing so, giving the machine more room for the shredded paper. If neither of these help, refer to your owner's manual to see what recourse you may have.

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..

Shrededer motor remains on after shredding is complete


Blow out the sensors with some compressed air.(Computer Duster) they are likely covered in paper dust and the machine believes paper is present.
Please be sure to unplug the machine before attempting any sort of repairs
Hope this is of some help
