There is a thermal switch in a shredder for situations when the paper gets stuck in the rollers and the blocked motor is overheating.
Usually the thermal switch is reversible, ie after cooling down the unit powers on fine. To my knowledge there is no physical reset needed.
However, the motor itself may have a secondary thermal fuse inside it's winding, and this one usually is single-use: when it blows - the motor needs to be repaired.
If waiting even more doesn't help, and you indeed triple-checked the safety interlock features, then it is possible that a fuse is indeed blown and the unit needs inspection by an electrician.

SOURCE: shredder stopped working

I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pc1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

SOURCE: Shredder will not work

try resetting the shreddar, unplugging it then plugging it back in, also is the unit properly mounted on the shredding bin? also you could try oiling the cutters to make the paper go through more easily....make sure no paper or papre clips are stuck in paper shreddar also....try it in reverse to see if anything is stuck...if this all fails if you hav ea warranty now would be a good time to call the warranty company

SOURCE: what is the interlock for a staples shredder

if you look at the underside of the shredder, you will likely find a pressure switch that is actuated when it sits on the stock bin, either modify it to touch when on the new bin or secure it so it is depressed all the time. This should allow it to operate on the replacement bin.

Hope this is of some help.

If the blades rotate then the paper should go in...just be sure the blades are turning in the forward direction and not in reverse.Also make sure you lubricate the blades with shredder oil.

I have Royal crosscut papershredder - Model VF810. It won't operate because the red "overheat" light is on. I've waited for at least 30 minutes, but it still won't work. Is there a reset button or...


If you "unplugged" the machine and let it sit for 1/2 hour and the "overheat" lite still won't go out then you probably fried the pcb inside the machine...you can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts advice.

The shredder has been unplugged from power for a couple of weeks. I clean and clear paper bits from rollers and plug it in to outlet(with power). It doesn't have an on light and doesn't turn on.


Most common prob with "consumer" machines is that people put "too much" paper in them and JAM them...then if they don't unplug the machine to let it "cool-down"....by which time the machine "fries" the pcb inside.
For parts advice give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799.

Check if its just dirty "eyes"...they are in the middle where you put the paper in; clean them with a soft cloth ( unplug the shredder first.)
If that dos'nt fix it then it could be defective "eyes" or the pcb...you can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.

Won't Turn on


Yes...these small shredders are only meant for light use....5 minutes ON..10 mins OFF to let it cool down, thats the nature of a $60 or $70 shredder.
Commercial shredders start at $250 and go up. But you dont have to wait for them to cool down.
Common sense still says you must buy the right machine for the job...even if you only use it 2 times a year..it depends on the amount of paper you shred..not the number of times you use it.
Anyway...if it won't turn on at all its most likely the pcb inside....contact Royal for parts and pricing at 1-800-524-0799.

Royal 150MX shredder won't auto shut off. When powered on, always runs until powered off, even after all paper is shredded. Is this also a reset problem or something fouling a switch?


Prob could be the "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in. They just might need cleaning with a soft cloth( unplug machine first.) If that dos'nt fix it the eyes could be faulty or the pcb could be faulty....give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.

Will turn on, run in reverse, but will NOT shred...


First try unplugging the power cord for ten minutes and see itf it reset.

Many model also have a reset button inside, find it and keep it pressed if the first solution did not work.
