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.

My gbc cc195 shedder is not working. a red light stays on

Is it blocked with paper shreads? I have taken mine apart several tiimes to remove the small pieces of trash that clogged the micro switch that keeps it running. Also it will over heat at times if you feed it with to thick of paper stacks. I have used the reverse button a few times to clear it. It is hard so not seeing it but it can be cleared to work again. Tools I used were a paper clip and small screw driver.

My shredder will run in reverse but not auto/forward. It is completely cleared of jams. Any suggestions

There should be a little leaf switch directly in the middle of where you feed in the papers to be shreadded. It could be jammed or simply bad.

Shredder keeps running on auto

Unplug it and check to see if theree is any paper caught in the Start switch. Turn it Off, plug it back in and start in the Reverse mode. Then turn it Off and set the swich for On - shread.

If that doesn't work unplug it and find the start switch trip wire, Toggle it a few times with something thin - don't push too hard. You can also spray the switch the canned air used to clean keyboards. Plug it back n, start it in reverse then move it to shread.

Reverse lights not working

Check your reverse switch on the transmission to make sure its hook up . You will have to probably replace it . If you have not tried that first . Use a light meter to check the reverse switch if you have power at the plug then its the switch if theres no power then check your fuse box for blowen fuss

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Overload light comes on whenever anything is inserted. No jams, nothing is in the feed slot.

Try running the machine in reverse...see if it will at least do that...if it does then get some oil onto the turning cutting blades. If it wont even run in reverse then you may have a fried pcb or motor, you can contact Royal for parts assistance at 1-800-524-0799.

Reverse shred does not work

either the switch is unplugged or defective, or the main board needs replacing. Also, they come with a 2 year warranty. try calling 1-800-955-0959 for fellows end-user support and have serial # ready (ser.# is found when you open the door).

Reverse lights wont work

On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
