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.
MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT.
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.

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: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

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: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

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 just bought a Royal shredder, model MC14MX. That's a Sam's model number, so I can't find it online, but it is a 14 sheet crosscut. There was no manual in the box and I can't find one online. The...


On the reviews for this shredder some people mentioned the same thing. Just got mine home, and sure enough, sounds like jars clanking together.
Plugged it in, and started feeding paper into it, and it works just fine. I wouldn't worry about the clanking. BTW makes me smile every time I feed paper in. It is so quiet. My last one sounded like a mack truck, this has a mild hum and a slight bit of clanking.

I have a simple Royal paper shredder. Got paper stuck in it. Going back and forth the paper appears to be gone, and it grinds normally in reverse but going forward the green light is on but nothing will...


Does the machine even run in reverse???? Have you ever oiled the machine.???
Put some "shredder oil" onto the cutting blades while it is running in reverse then try running it forwards.
If you can hear the motor running but the cutting blades dont turn you will have to open it up to see what is broken.

My royal paper shredder is jammed. How do I unjam the shredder?


Normally try to run it in reverse while pulling the paper back out to assist the motor. If it won't even run in reverse then you will have to take it apart to manually clear the jam.

Royal 9 x cross cut shredder wont go through even two pages thick


Put some shredder oil on the paper you are shreding...shred a number of sheets with oil on them so that the oil gets down into the cutting shafts/teeth.
