Rick,

This TS4500 shredder had been discontinued for more than 5 years. The factory did not make any spare parts for this model.

Thanks,

SOURCE: My shredder squeaks when in use, does it need regular lubrication? If so, what do I use?

Visit the link below for various types of shredder oils.
http://www.factory-express.com/Shredder_Oil__Bags-2025.htm
Regular use of paper shredders creates paper dust that can dry out components, dull the blades, clog the machine and burn out the motor. However, with proper oiling and maintenance, a paper shredder can last for years.
Oiling a shredder can be accomplished using one of two quick methods. The paper method limits excess oil to the paper, reducing the chance of it splattering when you turn the machine back on. This method is more common than the second and can be used with all kinds of shredders. The paperless method may be less common, but it is just as effective at removing dust buildup from the blades of the shredder.
The Paper Method:1. Place a sheet of paper on or above a surface that will not be marred or damaged should you spill oil on it.2. Apply the oil to one side of the paper in a wide zigzag pattern across the whole face of the page to ensure sufficient coverage. Do not saturate the paper with oil.
3. Turn the shredder on and run the oiled piece of paper through the shredder. As the paper shreds, the oil that has been absorbed by the paper will lubricate the blades. The motion of the blades will distribute oil so the shredder continues to operate smoothly.
3. Feed a few more papers into the shredder to absorb residual oil from the cutting assembly. The Paperless Method:1. Set the shredder to manual mode so you can control the direction of the blades and the amount of time the blades are in motion.2. With the paper shredder turned off, squirt a solid line of oil into the paper entry lengthwise across the paper-shredder blades.
3. Start
the paper shredder in reverse, allowing it to run for 10 to 20 seconds before stopping the blades. This will evenly distribute the oil to all parts of the cutting assembly.
4. Return
the shredder to automatic mode. Then feed two or three sheets of paper into it to absorb the excess oil from the machine. Tip:
How often you should oil your paper shredder depends mostly on how much you use it. Office shredders that see heavy use every day will need to be oiled several times a week, while home machines used occasionally need be oiled only a few times a year. Cross-cut shredders will require more frequent oiling than other paper shredder varieties because they have more blades and create much more paper dust.
You can purchase a shredder lubricating oil from any major electronic or office supplies store or you can contact Royal customer service at 908-429-4357.

How to lubricate a paper shredder


To lubricate a shredder, use some shredder lubricating oil which can be purchased at stationary shops or online. Get a piece of paper and run a line of the oil across the width of the paper at different heights then run the paper through the shredder, do this a couple of times as this should lubricate the mechanisms and the gear assembly.

I have this shredder with no book of instructions. Where do I lubricate? Not sure.


Simply where the paper feeds. Lubricate along the opening and then let unit run empty on reverse for 2-3 minutes. Good luck

I have a novitech shedder. The motor works but it will not shred?


It is probably a gear that is not longer connecting or is worn so will not turn the teeth. It is a little known fact that shredders need to be lubricated at least annually as the fine paper begins to clog the teeth over time and can over-work the motor.
Solution if this is the case - purchase a new shredder and some lubrication.

Have a tech solutions 4500. how do you lubricate it?


  1. Cross cut shredders require more frequent oiling versus the straight strip shredders. The more paper and use it gets the more oil it requires. A good rule of thumb is to oil the machine each time you change the bag.
  2. Use only shredder oil designed for the specific brand of paper shredder you have. Manufacturers design paper shredder oils to be heat tolerant for the cylinders and blades, and they calibrate them specifically for their machines.
  3. Spray, squirt or run a bead of oil across the blade opening. It shouldn't take more than a second or two to reach from one end to the other. Any more than that may result in too much oil applied. Quicker than that means there isn't enough oil to adequately lubricate the machine.
  4. Turn the paper shredder to "Manual" and run the gears in reverse for a few seconds, then turn the shredder on "Forward" or "Standard" mode. This ensures that you distribute the oil throughout the machine, and going in reverse first forces some of the dripping oil back up, and then the forward moving blades push it back through the gears.
  5. Oil a sheet of paper rather than the machine. Don't just run a bead of oil across the bottom of the sheet because the paper soaks up the oil and the oil may not reach all of the necessary parts. Instead, spray the whole sheet, or run a zigzag line across the paper and immediately send it through the shredder to oil it.

Does one ever lubricate the shredder?


Yes.... you have to squirt shredder oil onto a piece of paper that you wish to shred & feed it through the shredder. Do not use too much oil a little is all you need

The main problem with paper shredders is tha t they don't get their proper maintenance...
They should be lubricated (If you open the door, you will probably find a small bottle with lubricating oil inside the cabinet). Look inside the supplied manual and follow the instructions.
I tell this because one of my friends has business with paper shredders, and the most common cause is missing maintenance and/or lubrication.
If it's the blades in the center that cause the problem, this points to a worn out wheel that hasn't got the proper lubrication.
The solution is to get a new shredder, or if your shredder is of a known brand, get a new set of wheels.
