The overheat indicator comes on because paper residue is jammed in the mechanism, causing it to bind and overheat the motor.

Royal 1600mx will not power on. Bin has been emptied. All bits of small pieces of paper have been removed from the blades. Green auto-on light will not come on.


ive seen this on several types of paper shredders , what usually happens is someone puts too large a load into its jaws and it tries but cannot shred it , theres sometimes a small pop out (protection) device by the power cord inlet (on case) and on others this (protection) device is on the inside of the case , requiring one to take it apart and replace it (if its on the inside its not resettable its only replaceable) hope this helps .

1600mx wont run in forward over load light comes on


Most common reason is that there is paper would around the cutters, imposing an additional load on the machine. You will need to access the cutter assembly (disconnect all power) and manually remove all of the paper that has impinged between the cutters.

If you have run any labels or paper with gummed strips through the cutters, you may wish to consider throwing this one away and buying new. (In all fairness, it "can" be cleaned, but it is going to be a real dickens of a job to do).

If you decide to keep your shredder and clean the cutter assembly, remember to oil it on a regular basis per the instruction manual.

As for me, I use Fellows shredder oil
Fellowes Shredder Oil 12 oz Bottle with Extension Nozzle 35250
and oil my machine every time I dump the cuttings. I run a bead of oil in a serpentine pattern over a sheet of paper and then just shred it. (If you have never oiled the cutters, it may be too late to do so now. Something you need to do on an on-going basis).

How do I register the purchase of my Royal 1600MX paper shredder?


I would suggest calling SAM's, they can at least generate you a duplicate receipt.

MY SHREDDER IS OVERHEATING


Significantly Improve the Manufacturer's Suggested Duty Cycle, from Intermittent Use: ON=6min / OFF=30min to CONTINUOUS USE

ROYAL PX1201

My comments below are addressing these 3 issues:

1 How to permanently fix the motor overheating

2 How prevent motor thermal shut-down

3 How considerably improve the duty cycle


I am sharing this info with you with the hope it may save you some time.
Did purchase this unit from Costco about 6 years ago, in 2010.
This unit is functioning well today except its motor was overhearing and going into automatic thermal shut-down.
The ROYAL PX1201 model # is PCUA: 29127H-FE ; the Lot # 111155925.
Had to open the motor enclosure quite few times for cleanup and cooling.
Note the manufacturer's recommended duty cycle is ON=6min / OFF=30min. Nobody I know has 30min time to babysit a shredder.

In thermal shut-down mode the motor would not turn in any direction.
Today I modified the ROYAL PX1201 by adding an external 12V DC computer fan for motor cooling.
Cut a fan-placement, round, 3.25inch hole into the shredder top, at the upper right of the paper-insert slit: ____O
External, room-air is being forced into the motor-and-gear enclosure at all times, non-stop.
The paper-insert slit provides the hot-air exhaust.
The fan is an ordinary plastic PC fan: 12V DC, 0.12A=120mA, XYZ=72*72*20mm ; diagonal=101mm (hole-to-hole).
Fan cost is around $5.- and the fan power supply was a separate 12V DC adapter.
Did not have time to electrically connect the fan to the shredder's internal power supply.

Today I used the shredder continuously for 8 hours with neither overheating nor thermal shutdown.
Did fill TEN 13-gallon plastic bags with shredded paper / hand compacted confetti.
On average I shredded 6 letter-size, normal thickness pages at a time / per feed, continuous feed for about 8 hours.

How do I empty a Royal PX1000MX?


You have probably got the bin so full it is stuck/jammed full of paper and you now can't remove it...this is a "consumer" model machine and to keep cost low they do not provide a "bag-full" light on the panel...you should regularly empty the bin so that the shredded paper does not totally jam the bin and in extreme cases then get caught back up into the cutting machanism and blow the pcb inside the machine...check your "users" instructions to remove the bin.

How to empty full royal vf1000mx shredder. No, the basket does not pull off.


You may have the basket completely full and jammed with paper which is why it won't come out easily.....you will just have to try to slightly lift the basket and pull forwards to remove it.

Cash register PE ondisplay and nothing will work


It means printer error. Usually after a paper jam. Clear any paper out and try turning off and on at the wall. ***************************************************************************** *****************************************************************************
