Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My Royal 1620 MX 16 sheet cross cut shredder doesnt beep when the bin is full and it keeps on shredding paper. I have to clean out the blades if I forget to clean it out.

More than likely, there is a lot of paper debris jammed between the cutters and strippers. If you are handy, try the following.
Disconnect the power.
Disassemble the shredder from the lower bin to access the cutting head. Clear the head of all debris with a small screw driver or ice pick. Reassemble and oil the cutters with shredder oil, being careful not to get any oil on the optics. This should solve the sluggish problem. Oil on a regular basis, before every use.

When I bought my last shredder it came with a small bottle of oil. The instructions said to put a few drops of oil on the blades now and then.
I think the oil was actually canola oil.
Read your manual to see if it suggests any lubrication.

look for two LED lights where paper falls into bin and wipe them off, but the sensors could be faulty as well. I have seen both.

Have you "oiled" the machine.... put some shredder oil on a piece of paper and shred it....do this a few times to get oil into the cutting blades and see if that helps.

Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.
