Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper

Have a Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper. Blades look pretty clean, as clean as it looked when it would shred 8 sheets easily. Any ideas?

Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.

SHREDDER CONTINUALLY SAYS OVERLOAD EVEN THOUGH 2 SHEETS OF PAPER ARE INSERTED


It might need cleaning; mine had the shredded paper jammed in by cutters and some shreds got between the gears. First, try using a "cleaning sheet": a piece of paper lightly sprayed or smeared with vegetable oil or spray cooking oil. If that doesn't do fix it, the shredding mechanism, which has many parts, some of which are sharp as razors, might need to be disassembled and cleaned. Though I did that disassembly and cleaning, I would not recommend it to the casual DIY-er.

This shredder overheats after 1 to 2 thin weight sheets of paper. Says it does up to 10 sheets but can not handle more then 1 sheet at a time. I have cleaned and cleaned the cutters with no improovement


Have you "oiled" the machine ever.????
Cross-cut shredders require occasional oiling with "shredder oil" to help clear out debris that is made in the shredding process from the cutting mechanism. Get some shredder oil and pour it directly across the cutting blades where you insert the paper... this should help...the occassionaly pour some oil onto a sheet of the paper to be shredded prior to shredding it.

My shredder overload light comes on immediately with only one sheet of paper inserted and it won't go.


Try running the machine in reverse and putting some shredder oil onto the cutting blades to loosen things up. Then try running the machine in the forward direction but hold the paper in the eyes but dont let it go into the shredding blades...see if it runs forward.!
If it will do this then slowly try paper 1 sheet at a time..but put some shredder oil onto the sheets of paper you are shredding.
If the overload light still comes on without even letting you shred 1 sheet of paper then you likely have another problem...maybe the motor or pcb..you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

My royal ag10x cross cut shredder is losing steam - labors thru 4 pages at a time and i've never done any maintence in 8 years. is there a way to sharpen the blades?


May not be the blades that need sharpening.....try putting some lightweight shredder oil on a sheet of paper then shred the sheet of paper....do this 2 or three times and see if it helps. It won't hurt to put a good bit of oil on the paper.

Royal VF700 won't barely shred one sheet of paper. It givexs the overload red light when 1 sheet of paper has just barely started to be shredded.


Royal. Haven't heard of that brand. Could get in contact with tech service, but it's probably easier to grab a new paper shredder.
Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

I was shredding and I put 2 sheets in and the shredder jammed.


You don't mention if its x-cut or not......however, try putting some lightweight shredder oil on a sheet of paper and then shred the paper with the oil on it...do this a few times to get oil into the cutting blades then see if that has helped.

Overload with one sheet of paper..nothing jam inside .very clean


Should not have a problem with 1 sheet....so...have you ever "oiled" the machine.????? Pour some shredder oild inside to lubricate the cutting blades and try to run the machine in "reverse" for 20 secs or so...then put some oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

Pour some shredder oil in the throat where you normally insert the paper...put some shredder oil directly onto 1 sheet of paper and try shredding 1 sheet. If it wont even shred 1 sheet I would ask is the shredder running???
