Have an electrician install a 4-way light switch, that will reverse polarity on the two wires that power the motor, coming from the damaged computer board (that USE to swap polarity ) and have him mount it where it can be easily seen and reached. The drawing below is only to explain how the 4-way switch works.
As I am an Electrician, it was an easier and more cost effective solution, when my 4year old turned my shredder into a piggy bank, burning out the forward option within the computer board.

    it would not load my image...the current either travels through the switch in parallel ( ll ) or is crossed (X) switching the polarity.

RED Light is on (left of the green light)


Reverse shredder and clean out as much paper shred as possible. Use some lube oil. Hairclipper oil and canola vegetable oil are good choices.

Red light and green light on but motor will not come on


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


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

The reverse works fine but green light is not on and shredder does not work. Nothing is hanging in the shredder. Any suggestions?


If reverse works but it won't run forward try cleaning the "eyes" with a soft cloth..they are in the middle of the slot where you put the paper in...if that dosn't fix it then it is probably the pcb;...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.
