Wendy, in my experience in working on shredders, it sounds like you have a gear that is starting to fail. Most of the time it is very hard to find new gears for shredders unless you have purchased a very expensive model that is designed to handle a large number of sheets at a time.

On most shredders ideal unjamming would be by trying the reverse, if that fails there's 2 options: 1 - opening the unit by removing screws (usually 5) and using small narrow flat screwdriver carefully clearing out all the stuck paper/cardboard from in between two rollers, but be carefull and make sure the power cord is NOT plugged into wall socket. 2 - without dissassembling the unit spray some WD-40 into the shredders feed opening and let that cardboard soak for a while. WD-40 will soak into cardboard and any stuck paper and will loosen it, you might need to spray couple of times allowing to soak in between sprays, but this definitely does the trick. Once sprayed 2-3 times allowing to soak for at least 10 minutes between sprays simply swich the shredder on and use reverse and all stuck paper should come out. Be advised after unit was cleared you must use some spray oil to protect the blades. Once oiled allow unit to run in reverse for at least 2 minutes, the swich it off. 15-20 minutes later your shredder will be good as new!! Hope this helps ;)

The shredder motor will run in reverse only. When the function switch is placed in the forward postition, a red lamp illuminates indicating a motor problem

I have a Royal CX 66 Crosscut shredder and attempted to shred 10 pages. The unit shredded 1/2 of the papers and the other 1/2 are stuck in the shredder; the reverse mode will not release the papers. Is...


The Royal cx-6 shredder is a small consumer shredder rated for "up to 6 sheets at a time" so yes it will jam with anything more that 6.
If running it in reverse won't work you will have to try to open it up and see if you can manually turn things to get the paper back out...there is no other way if it wont run in reverse...hopefully when you have the paper removed the machine will still function.

At a point, when the paper is being feed it, there is a knock and top of shredder is lifted as the the shredding gears try to revolve, then mechanism stops and reverses the gears and stops.


Try holding a piece of paper in the "eyes" to see if the machine runs forward...if it won't then it sounds like something may be broken inside...it will have to be opened up to see if anything obvious is damaged. If you need parts then call Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

For an Embassy shredder, the forward function is not working.


I was able to figure out the solution for this by taking apart the shredder.

My model is a TX61B. There is a piece of plastic that is attached to an internal sensor. You can see it below the shredder slot with a flashlight. if it is sticking out, the sensor is not tripped, and the forward function stops.

To reactivate this, just put something down the slot like a thin screwdriver to push the plastic lever back, reactivating the forward function.

I could see this being caused by running too much paper in reverse mode, which I recently did.

Shreder will only go backwards


I have a Fellows OS-11Cs shredder that suddenly quit operating. It would run in reverse and when auto mode was selected an audible clicking noise was emitting from a relay on the pc board. My initial thought was that I had overheated the unit since the shredder had been operating perfectly up to the point where it stopped working but that didn't seem to be the case after the unit was allowed to cool down.I cleaned all visible paper shreds from the cutters(with the shredder unplugged)that were visible and then sprayed the cutters with a very light lubricant (3 in 1 oil) I then operated the shredder in the reverse mode for a few moments and since then the shredder has operated flawlessly.I hope this is of some assistance to others with a similar problem.
