SOURCE: Shredding paper partially

Your cutters have spread apart this could be caused by overloading machine to many times or something may have cracked internally that held them in place.

SOURCE: shredding no more

if the unit is pulling paper thru but not shredding your cutters have separated for some reason. If not pulling paper thru but machine is running you probally have a broken gear causing cutters to no longer turn you may hear a clunking or grinding noise or gear may be stripped if shredder sounds like it is spinning freely. Contact manufacturer for parts availability.

SOURCE: shrededer motor remains on after shredding is complete

Blow out the sensors with some compressed air.(Computer Duster) they are likely covered in paper dust and the machine believes paper is present.
Please be sure to unplug the machine before attempting any sort of repairs
Hope this is of some help

SOURCE: Overly loud shredding; stops prematurely

I have taken many shredders apart and found them so clogged up with shreds of paper and too much oil will turn into paper mud.Be bold and take the top off and clean it out. Unplug the power source and when removing the top , be careful because their will be a short cable connecting the top to the circuit board. Easy to damage.

SOURCE: My shredder runs but won't grab the paper that I'm

Look down into the slot to see if the teeth are sharp. They should have little J-hook thingys that look like the teeth in your mouth. If it looks ok, give it some food to chew. If it burps it up, throw it away because its a junker and not worth your time.

Good Luck.

Will not shred no matter what I try to do. I have run it backwards and forward and it still will not shred. Please advise and thank you.


If you want to keep it , I think you should dismantle it make a mental note of how you do it, free any paper jam and spray the cutter blades with a thin layer of WD 40 or similar then you should be good to go unless the motor is burned out from you constant on off testing

WON'T STOP SHREDDING WHEN ON AUTO


You will probably find some shredded paper is blocking the sensor in the middle of the paper feed slot

I've lost the manual what is the maintenance on the VF 1700mx


Shredders need no "real" maintenance......if you can open the top cover once per year and clean out any debris that might build up inside...other than that just occassionaly put some shredder oil onto a sheet of the paper you are shredding to help in lubrication/cleaning of the cutting teeth of any builld-up of dust and debris that take place during the shredding process.

My VF 1012mx paper shredder won't feed the paper in order to shred it. Green light is on but nothing happens when I put the paper in.


Does it run in reverse.????
You may just have dirty "eyes" where the paper is inserted, OR they may be defective.

Paper is not grabbing - thus not feeding into shredder


Take a look inside at the cutting blades when it is running...do the cutting shafts turn??? it sounds like they ARE NOT. If they are not turning but you can hear the motor running then you probably have a broken gear, or striped teeth on a gear. You will have to open it up to see which gears are the problem...then you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Only runs in reverse


I just had this problem with my shredder. I think the problem started with a bin that was full. Running the shredder in reverse resulted in shredded paper being pulled up into the slot used to feed paper into the shredder. Some of this shredded paper was blocking the little plastic tab that activates the switch when paper is inserted, so the shredder would no longer start when paper was inserted. I emptied the bin and removed the shredded paper from the feed slot, being careful not to break the plastic "sensor" while removing the paper from under it. The shredder works fine now.

I purchased a Royal Shredder, Mod. VF1700MX, Ser. No. 080245302 on Feb. 25, 2009. It was sent back for repair, under warranty about a year ago. I never shred more than 5 sheets at a time.It now cuts out on...


Have you ever "oiled " the machine...99% of cross cut shredders have to be oiled... get some shredder oil and squirt it onto the cutting blades where you put the paper in...this should be done with a certain frequency dependant on the amount of shredding that you do.

I have a vf1700mx I think we ran it a little to long and now when you put the paper in the motor starts and makes a noise a little different from shredding but will not accept pape. The motor is running...


If the moter runs but the cutting shafts are not turning then you have likely stripped a gear.... unplug, open top to see which one the give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799; they should be able to help with parts.
