How do you clean the "eye" on the Aurora AS1219CD? I heard that may be the problem with it not taking paper. But I am not sure how to go about it.

the best way is to take a q-tip and alcohol and rub the eye if you are facing the shredder it should be on the front but that is th only way we have to do it

Unit no longer shuts off when on "Auto" setting. I have to use this switch manually to turn unit on and off for every use, and would like to restore original functionality.

Don't know what kind of shredder is is but most have one or two eyes or switches that tell the shredder to start and also tell is to stop. these eyes get paper dust on them and will not shut off
, or they could be bad eyes or switches. Use can air and blow down in center of shredder gears and see if it solves problem. Also shredders shuld be lubricated with shredder oil every now and then....

My Royal 12X paper shredder runs only in reverse but will not run forward. I have noticed other postings regarding cleaning the sensors with rubbing alcohol ant that has been done but was not succesful. ...

If cleaning the eyes did not help then you will likely have to change parts can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and pricing information.

Shredder does not work for input but does work in reverse

Check the optical eye for debris, or the paper safety for proper operation.

Something is happening with the safety switch - it is not recognizing there is paper there.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Motor works only in reverse direction only.model sh1524cp

Your shredder thinks it is jammed ... did you clean the electric eye or the small lever - does it work freely?

Can you use canned air to blow dust out of the top? Have you cleared any paper stuck at the bottom of the unit?

Try these things - I have had occasional success with this kind of fiddling around.

Exploding paper shredder - very dangerous

I'd call your lawyer and tell him you can't touch any machinery which contains an electric motor because you have been psychologically damaged. Maybe Fellows will settle out of court.

Otherwise ring your local 7:30 current affairs news program.

I don't know why their motor would not be shielded from paper dust.
It is no big surprise that it may be dusty in there.

I'm glad you did suffer any permanent physical damage.

Stopped working. will operate in reverse only

When shredders only work in reverse, it typically means that they are really jammed up. First thing to do is to UNPLUG the shredder. Then, take a look at the underside of the teeth. You will most likely see a bunch of paper sticking out, if so, try to remove it. I would advise against using your fingers, though. 
As a last resort, get someone who is mechanically inclined to take the head unit apart to remove the jammed pieces. Unfortunately, once this happens, it often spells an early demise for the shredder. I have gone through three of these things for the very same reason.

Won't shut off after shredding.

I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2.  Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)
