From your description, it sounds like when you insert the paper the motor turns on, but the paper is not pulled into the shredder, indicating the two shredder cylinders are not turning. The most likely cause of this is a stripped (missing teeth) main nylon gear. These can be replaced but require some effort.

If it sounds like the motor is running and the blades are not turning, you may have a stripped gear inside. Un plug the shredder first, then you can unscrew the cover over the blades and motor to check to see if the gear from the motor to the blades and the gear on the blades have any teeth missing, stripped, or not touching.

The sensor in the Feed slot may not be working. It it gets covered in dust it can't detect the paper. I got a can of compressed air and blew it down the slot 3/4 times which worked fine.

The motor runs but it is not turning the shredder teeth? This is probably a sign that the shredder has been broken by putting too much paper in at one time. The damage is probably permanent unless you want to open the mechanism and fix it, and this may involve purchasing new parts. However without more information it is not possible to give a more useful solution.

You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.

Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

SOURCE: Our shredder is making a loud, grinding noise.

simply try resetting the machine. unplugging it waiting for about 30 seconds then plugging it back in, also is the unit mounted properly on the unit? It might be one of the gears that is not broken...if you have a warranty now would be a good time to call them as they will fix or replace the part for the unit.

My shredder worked fine but now when I turn on it does not stop running and does not shred paper ?


Most shredders will have a shred and a reverse setting. Is it running in reverse? Has the bin been emptied? With the power off, you can remove the bin and manually pull excess shredded paper jammed in the cutting heads -watch out, sharp metal . Once cleared run single sheets for the first minute to help clear rollers.

Shreds in reverse only


I think there is a shredded buildup on the bottom. Unlpug the device ... turn it over and clear out the residue you will find there.

Sometimes I find the addition of shredder oil during the shredding process helps to eliminate this problem. Get the oil where shredders are sold.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

Shredder stops shredding, you have to turn it off and on,


If I had designed a shredder, I would equip it with a circuit or device that would detect overloads (too much stock to shred) with either an overcurrent detector or a thermal shutoff so it's likely that one of these two methods is used in yours and if you are following the guidelines as to the maximum number of sheets, then this circuit is faulty and shutting the motor down too early.

Shredder makes a horrible sound when shredding.


Just put a lightweight shredder oil on some paper and shred the paper...do this a number of times this will get the oil down into the cutting shafts.
