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.

Shredder stops - red light off


Some shredders are great for thicker paper. If you put a thicker piece of card through, it should activate the switch located in the middle of the shred blades. The paper might be too light to push it forward. Also, if you click the feed catch beyond it's operating position, this can also stop the shredder with no lights.

My shredder runs non stop, when I insert paper to shred , it stops... I push reverse, it works , pull paper out and runs non stop.......


Sounds like a bad or stuck sensor, acting as if it is always seeing a peice of paper in it. Check if you can find it and maybe it is just stuck to the on position..

WHY DOES MY TECHNIC 1200 MK3 GO IN REVERSE IF I HIT THE START BUTTON TWICE?


There is a mod you can do to the 1200 to make it spin in reverse with a double-tap on the start / stop switch - exactly as you're describing. Likely, the previous owner installed said mod. It's awesome, embrace it.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

Royal 85x paper shredder: The shredder will start to shred but stops shortly after "grabbing" the paper. In order to get it shredding again, I have to put the machine in reverse, remove the...


Sometimes spraying shredder oil on the cutting teeth wil work.

You should shred paper with a light weight machine oil poured on the paper to keep the cutting teeth working freely.

Good luck.

P.S. If this doesn't work then just take the head off and cleanj/lubricate any bearings you find.

When you put paper in it starts to shred for about 1/4 inch then goes to reverse. No jams that I can see. Can run forward and reverse without paper with no problem. Sensor problem?


No mention of make or model however this holds true for all shredders.... especially if its a "cross-cut" shredder; put some shredder oil onto the cutting shafts where you insert the paper this will help get rid of some of the build-up that occurs due to the shredding process...also give the "eyes" in the middle of the "throat" a clan with a soft cloth( unplug the machine first or it will start to run and take your cloth in.) Occasionaly shrd a sheet of paper with some shredder oil poured directly onto the paper..this will help lubricate the cutting blades. Lastly...only shred up to about 70% of the rated cpacity..this will result in fewer jams an longer machine life.

Royal 9 x cross cut shredder wont go through even two pages thick


Put some shredder oil on the paper you are shreding...shred a number of sheets with oil on them so that the oil gets down into the cutting shafts/teeth.

Shredding stops after 2 or 3 inches


If you have a strip cut machine it may be a problem with the gears. if it is not a strip cut it may be overheating due to not being oiled. First check with your manual to make sure you are not exceeding your duty cycle some machines only have a 2min on and 10 min off cycle,
