Be aware when it runs it can hurt you seriously.
But in the machine are some security switches. Unplug the device, and lift the shredder part. Then check if nothing is blocked on the down side of the cutter. Check if all security switches are engaged, when you put it together. The top must be closed complete. Just a few mili meter space, can make the machine to stop.

Black n& DEcker paper shredder CC600 will not turn on


Check if there is power from the outlet. Check the cabling. Then do a check on the shredder to see nothing is blocking the free movement of the "knives " then check if all sensors are engaged. Not closing the shredder 100% ant the not closed sensor will prevent the motor to run. See and here if the paper in sensor is in tact and clicking when putting in paper. Needless to say, you better unplug the shredder when you open it to check.

Red light and green light on but motor will not come on


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Shredder wont shred


My boss has a shredder that will not run unless the bin is exactly centered in the bottom of the unit. There is a safety switch inside there, and a magnet to activate it. Make sure nothing is interfering with the bin or the shredder fitting together.
On other units, there is a slot that must match up with the shredder. It will only work one way. See of the shredder will turn around and put it on the bin the other way.

The shredder has started making a whining sound under heavy load - say 10 sheets. It is 5 years old and has had light home usage.


Do you use shredder oil in your device? Even under "light home use" a shredders life is not easy. Ten sheets is a lot of paper to cut.

I use a cross hatch cutter design and I never put in more than 5 sheets and I use shredder oil. Find this product at a FixYa.com advertiser, Staples, Best Buy, Office Depot or any other fine retail outlet.

Power failure


If it is dead and you have no lights and nothing runs the most likely the pcb is blown inside...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and pricing.

Red light on as well as green,what is the red light


The red LED can mean one of two things -- either the shredder head is not assembled correctly (did you take the shredder apart recently?) or there is a paper jam inside the machine. Sometimes the jammed paper is far down and hard to see.

My shredder won't work at all!!


If it would be the on/off switch, you can try some WD-40, its clean the contact inside the switch, just spray the switch two or three times & work it, if the problem in the switch, this will help, some have fuse in the back side of them some where.

Good luck
