Broken won't move


Check the teeth for something jamed. Has it set up for many years, maybe rusted bar. Does the motor run? If so maybe a cam gear broken or jam. Does the teeth on the bar move when removed from unit? Or does the motor run when bar removed? To many question to ask need more info.

My shredder will not work. It makes sounds both forward and reverse, but the blades don't; turn. There's no jam signal. Help!!


Most likely one of the gears popped off or cracked. The blades are gear driven by a motor and it's pretty straight forward. If the blades aren't moving, then it's probably a gear problem since you said the motor runs.
Not much you can do without taking it apart.
Good luck. =)

This is the most common problem...people put TOO MUCH paper in shredders... the VF880 has plastic gears inside...having done this a number of times you may have broken the gears or stripped the "teeth" off the gears...open it up to see what damage has been done; once you know what is broken you can contact Royal for pricing and parts at 1-800-524-0799.

Thanks! I have a 7x Crosscut Paper Shredder, Model # PCUA:29053U. The teeth are jammed due to I believe a build up of paper. I have run it on reverse & tried to pick out the paper. The motor runs but...


If the motor runs but the cutting teeth dont turn then you have stripped or broken a gear in the drive train. You can get replacement parts from Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

Shredder will not start when paper is inserted. switch is on auto. This happened after a long session of shredding


Two possible problems;
  1. Teeth underneath lid are jammed; sometimes (especially after a long session) although the papers go through, debris builds up and can get caught in the teeth; to clear unplug and with tweezers or a tina flathead screwdriver, pull out shreds of paper still caught
  2. Motor is overheated; once cool, try it again (move switch to reverse to see if motor is still working). If motor is working, see Step 1 for a jam; some jams can be cleared by running it in reverse. Royal doesn't recommend "long" shredding sessions. My unit recommends sessions of 20 pages or less. If you try to overwork the shredder, it will overheat and in some cases, fry the motor.
I hope this helps answer your problem. Best of luck!

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


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

sounds like the paper jam might have stripped some teeth off the gears in the printer or the motor might have failed have a visual look at the gears that pull the paper through if broke measure it and tell me how many teeth it has i might have one, or even the motor i have extra printers lexmarks for parts.

Shredder motor seems jammed


must disassemble feeder unit and visual check for jam. The debris may be a part of the shredder that has broken off.
