Try soaking the clogs with hot soapy water overnight.

SOURCE: shredder won't shred forward but works in reverse

Either the "eyes" are dirty or faulty, or the pcb has gone. Call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts availability. When you get it working again only run the unit at 70% of its max rating... this provides less stress on the motor and internal parts.. the machine will last longer and you will have fewer jams.

Take it back to the store where you got it if it has never worked...its probably still under warranty.

SOURCE: shredder will not automatically shred

Try cleaning the little glass "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in...they may just be dirty.

My Black & Decker Shredder #BD-61 all of a sudden does not work. I used it tonight, but the next time I tried it does not work. The lights come on in both positions, but


On some shredders when both the forward and reverse LEDs are on it can indicate either a jam or a full receiver bag/ container (the area that the shredded paper is fed into).
Try the following steps:
  1. ) unplug the power
  2. ) open up the shredder (see 1 on diagram)
  3. ) empty out all the shredded paper (see 2 on diagram)
  4. ) check that the shredding jaws (both the entrance and exit) are clear of any shredded material (see 3 on diagram)
  5. ) put everything back together
  6. ) plug power cord back in
  7. ) force the shredder into reverse (see 4 on diagram)

Hopefully you should hear your shredder motor running. If it is switch it to automatic and try shredding again

My shredder will only work in reverse.


There must be a button on the shredder you need to push so it works forward, this button has 2 options: forward for shredding, and backward to push caught papers out of shredder.

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..

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. :)

Paper gets jammed. Even shredding just one sheeet of paper. Clicking noise is heard before the red light comes on.


The problem was solved by putting some oil on the top of the shredder and running the motor forward and in reverse to coat the teeth. Thank you.

Shredder won't shred any more.


I have the Infoguard SX100M Axeus, sold by Staples.
Only the reverse was working, UNPLUG and open back cover, the paper mechanical switch was working fine, red side switch, the gears and fuse were all ok, I think something on the circuit board was fried.

I switched the BLACK and WHITE wires with each other going to the shredder motor, thus when I switched it to reverse, it would go foward and shred. Its working now, only in reverse.
