Question about Royal Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Royal MC14MX paper shredder that has worked extremely well for almost 2 years. Until now. I normally leave it turned on 24/7, even when the office is closed. The other day I turned it off and

I took it apart and a cursory glance showed no obvious loose wires, I cleaned the feed sensor again and put it back together but it still won't run.

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and
place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper
wrapped around the blades - can take a while.
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

Some shredders have optical sensors with a dark sensor LED on one side of the slot, and a clear transmitter LED on the other. You will most likely have to disassemble the shredder housing to clean them.
Generally you will find screws on the underside of the shredder unit, with one screw covered by a "warranty void if broken" sticker. Remove these screws, separate the housing, and clean the optical sensor pair with windex or isopropyl rubbing alcohol. If your shredder has a CD slot, it may have its own sensor pair. Be sure to clean both pairs of sensors, as the CD sensors seem to be the ones that have the most trouble because of small aluminum debris.

SOURCE: Paper no longer feeds in. Motor works.

Please check the sensor is on or off.
if paper is feeding completely then it means you need to buy a new one.

Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here:

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here:

I need to know why it takes 2 hours to shred enough papers before filling the catch box?It continually keeps stopping due to overheating. I am not using 14 sheets at a time because it can't handle it!

Manufacturers are often over-optimistic when describing their products.

Shredding paper creates quite a lot of dust that tends to clog up the works of the machine. They start off ok but soon start to slow down and lose power that can be restored by cleaning and lubricating the mechanism with something like a silicone spray or a dry lubricant.

The older the machine is, the more often it will need servicing to maintain peak performance. It is possible the thermal breaker in your machine is a little tired and very likely it isn't receiving enough cooling air to the motor - perhaps some vents need clearing or modifying.

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?

That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

I took my Xbox 360 apart to clean it when I put it back together everything works good but wireless controllers won't sync but wired controllers work anyone run into this problem

When you reassembled the xbox, you probably misaligned the infrared sensor in the front. If it isn't directly behind the red transparent window the signal can't be read. Open it up and check the alignment of the sensor. and make sure the connections are intact.

Rear driver window will not roll up, motor is good. took it apart and the vertical wire is loose what do i need to fix my problem?

your only hope, is RTM

no photos make all that impossible to answer , damage has no limits.
if the the motor gets 12vdc to it, it must work , or its jammed.
if not it the input power feed to the motor, that is failing,.
any voltmeter works here. use a meter to find the truth .

putting something back together that others took apart is one of the
most hardest things to do on earth. (i do it all the time and charge 3x)

I dropped the feed dogs and they won't come back up.

Ignore all the other comments, they are wrong.
The feed dogs are driven by the feed driver mechanism, turn the hand-wheel forward and the feed dogs will come up. (Providing you have the feed dog switch to the up position).
