Need a new gears for a PL-710SH paper shredder. One of the plastic gears between the motor and the shredder drums has broken up. Probably overloaded it with paper at one point. Is there a place to buy gears for items like this?

Paper jam


Does it sound like the motor is spinning? or does it sound like the motor is bound up? I ask because if it sounds like the motor is spinning, then chances are good you stripped a plastic gear somewhere in the drive system that feeds the steel shredder. I just pulled apart one of these and saw that the motor has a steel gear on it. that steel motor gear meets with a plastic gear, and then the plastic gear meets with steel gears attached to, and which spin the shredder. So if you ever bind the shredder with too much paper, the steel motor gear will grind the teeth right off the plastic gear and it won't spin anymore. If your motor sounds like it's bound, then the good news is that the gears aren't stripped. You'll have to take the shredder apart so you can remove the paper causing the problem. Of course unplug it first before opening it up. They are not overly complex but just remember where the screws goes so you put them back in the right holes.

The shredder developed a jam. I removed the bin and the top of the shredder. I removed the shredding mech. and removed the paper material. Reassembled the shredder. Shredder starts up when paper is...


Does the motor run??? even in reverse???
If the motor doeas not run at all it probably PCB. If the motor does run but the cutting mechanism does not turn then you probably have stripped/broken plastic gears... open and check,...contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Runs continuous when turned on, but stops when paper is inserted


I owe this to a Steve-EE.

Mine was the LED where the paper feeds. $1.69 for a 2 pack.

Staples spl-710sh paper shredder stopped shredding


This exact thing has happened to my unit as well. Ive disassembled it to discover that 5-7 teeth on the gear that the motor drives have been stripped off. Unless the gear can be replaced (which is probably not worth the expense), then the unit is toast. Sorry. Good luck.

Paper Shredder blades do not turn, even though motor is running


yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?
