My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

Motor runs, shredder wheels don't move


Unfortunately if the motor is running but the shredder wheels are not moving you have probably stripped or broken a gear. Most of the time I have had trouble finding new gears for any brand of shredder unless it is a high dollar model. You might be better off buying a new shredder than trying to fix this one.

My shredder has the sound like it is working, but it is not shredding.


From your description, it sounds like when you insert the paper the motor turns on, but the paper is not pulled into the shredder, indicating the two shredder cylinders are not turning. The most likely cause of this is a stripped (missing teeth) main nylon gear. These can be replaced but require some effort.

MY SHREDDER IS OVERHEATING


Significantly Improve the Manufacturer's Suggested Duty Cycle, from Intermittent Use: ON=6min / OFF=30min to CONTINUOUS USE

ROYAL PX1201

My comments below are addressing these 3 issues:

1 How to permanently fix the motor overheating

2 How prevent motor thermal shut-down

3 How considerably improve the duty cycle


I am sharing this info with you with the hope it may save you some time.
Did purchase this unit from Costco about 6 years ago, in 2010.
This unit is functioning well today except its motor was overhearing and going into automatic thermal shut-down.
The ROYAL PX1201 model # is PCUA: 29127H-FE ; the Lot # 111155925.
Had to open the motor enclosure quite few times for cleanup and cooling.
Note the manufacturer's recommended duty cycle is ON=6min / OFF=30min. Nobody I know has 30min time to babysit a shredder.

In thermal shut-down mode the motor would not turn in any direction.
Today I modified the ROYAL PX1201 by adding an external 12V DC computer fan for motor cooling.
Cut a fan-placement, round, 3.25inch hole into the shredder top, at the upper right of the paper-insert slit: ____O
External, room-air is being forced into the motor-and-gear enclosure at all times, non-stop.
The paper-insert slit provides the hot-air exhaust.
The fan is an ordinary plastic PC fan: 12V DC, 0.12A=120mA, XYZ=72*72*20mm ; diagonal=101mm (hole-to-hole).
Fan cost is around $5.- and the fan power supply was a separate 12V DC adapter.
Did not have time to electrically connect the fan to the shredder's internal power supply.

Today I used the shredder continuously for 8 hours with neither overheating nor thermal shutdown.
Did fill TEN 13-gallon plastic bags with shredded paper / hand compacted confetti.
On average I shredded 6 letter-size, normal thickness pages at a time / per feed, continuous feed for about 8 hours.

My shredder makes a thumpping noise then stop. Inreverse it does the same thing. My model is Aurora AS701X-MS The motor runs but it does'nt shred the paper unless you shake the paper then it stops.


It sounds like one of the drive gears has broken. I have contacted this manufacturer before and was told that they do not make replacement parts for their machines. If it is less than a year old, they will replace the unit but that is about all they will do.

If the condenser fan is not running while the compressor is running could damage the compressors overload. Yes it's a serious problem if not repaired soon. (Unplug until repaired.) This can cause a weakened internal overload inside the compressor. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My paper shredder stopped working


First things First...UNPLUG THE UNIT. It sounds like it has been fed too many pages at one time. You may also want to dump any shredded paper so there is plenty of room for the shredder blades to pull in the paper. If the paper catcher is too full the blades can grab shreds from the bottom and stop the blades movement. Just be careful. Shredders can be dangerous.
