Question about Royal 160MX Shredder

1 Answer

Royal VF-1012 mx Paper shredder..The armature bushing on the motor shaft of the shredder opposite the gear end of motor must be worn out and shaft was vibrating. It was making a strange noise. I tightened the brush retainer springs on both sides of the motor housing and stopped it from vibrating but the shaft is not in true center anymore. It's working now but I don't expect to last very long. Where can I purchase a bushing for the armature shaft for that model? Can anyone tell me? Thanks, Terry

How to oil shredder


You can oil the cutter blades by taking some 3 in 1 light weight oil and soaking a couple pieces of paper and running it through your shredder. This also keeps the blades sharp and is a good maintenance trick to keep your shredder working better.
You can try to oil the bushings at the end of the cutter shafts with a spray like wd-40, but we suggest that you give it a very very very short spray, and do NOT saturate the shredder because you could short out the sensors, boards, motor. etc.. The proper way to oil it would be taking it apart and lubing it up like a technician would.
Hope this helps.

My shredder Royal RL170MX is not working,makes noise and everything,turn on but the paper is not going in,what can i do


If the motor sounds like its running but the cutting shafts are not turning then you have likely stripped the teeth off one or more of the plastic gears inside.
Take the unit apart to determine which gear/gears are damaged the contact ROYAL at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Our Royal 15 mx cross cut shredder will back out material, but there is no green light and no ability to feed in paper. Is this a gearbox problem? Is there anything we can do? Nothing appears to be stuck...


Does it sound like the motor is running forward or is it just "dead" when you try to shred paper..... if the motor is running.....then its a gear...but most likely you have lost the pcb in the machine...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for info on parts and prices.

Plastic gear is wore out. the motor shaft wore it


My friend, if the gear is worn out, your machine is worn out. By the time you get and in stall this part, you can purchase a new machine.

There is a possibility that Royal will sell you the part ... you could check with them. I have never had luck repairing any but LARGE COMMERCIAL shredders. Home and small office shredders are not worth the effort to repair.

Shredder motor runs but won't shred paper. No


If the motor is running do the cutting shafts turn??? if not then unplug and open up the top to see if any gears are broken/stripped; give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices once you've located the problem.

Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper


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.

Shredder motor runs but gears are not engaging and will not take up paper to be shredded. Model is Royal VF1012mx


I have the same problem and upon removing the gears I found one that is plastic and worn pretty bad. Replacement parts can be purchased at 1-800-222-2310. Part # VF1012MX-08 Gear #2
I advise purchasing the metal one.
