My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

Only goes in reverse


Lube might not be necessary. Unplug the shredder from the outlet. Lift it off the shredded paper bin and turn it over. It is very possible that you have a jam. If this is the case, remove as much paper as you can making sure that you don't use anything that could do damage to the cutter'shredder blades. Once you have removed as much paper as possible, place the shredder back on the bin making sure that it is aligned properly. One way of making sure is to check for any space between the shredder and bin. If you do have space make sure that you replaced the shredder correctly on the bin; you may have to turn it around 180 degrees. When you get the shredder properly aligned, use the switch (DO NOT USE PAPER AT THIS TIME) to switch the shredder from Forward (shredding) to Reverse. You may have to do this a couple of times so be patient. At this point the shredder should be working in both directions. If so, move the switch to Auto or the center position and try a SINGLE sheet of paper. If it shreds that piece of paper, then you have fixed it. Be sure not to insert more paper than the shredder is rated for. Also, unless it specifically states that it can handle staples, credit cards, etc. do NOT let any of these items run through your shredder.
If none of the above works, buy a new one - :)

Shedder OM99732 in automatic mode will start and shred when paper put in, but will not shut off. It also appears there is some type of plastic covering the screws so I am unable to remove the cover. It...


It sounds like a piece of paper is blocking one of the two photo cells that detected when a piece of paper (or a CD / DVD) has been inserted for shredding. The (six) screws that secure the top are accessible from the bottom of the shredder unit after it is removed from the paper bin. Be careful: There are three different sets of wires connecting the top control plate to the bottom motor and cutter assemblies. It is not too difficult to get inside the shredder "head" if neccessary.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up 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

Init shredder not working the motor is running but the shredder part is not working. This started after clearing a paper jam. Model is NT-PS10CC


Probably a stripped gear in the drive chain caused by overloading. Parts are not usually available for these low-priced machines. Sorry.

Runs in reverse, but no on auto.


check and see if there is a jam of paper inside the unit or around the sensors

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

Will not shred will go in Rev


I just fixed a similar issue. My AS702MX shredder fell off my desk while I was emptying the basket. When I tried to use it after that it only ran in reverse, not in auto/forward (it was not jammed). This meant that the motor was still working. Since this shredder is so old, no longer under warranty, and not working anyway, I decided to open it up. I unscrewed the 5 screws on the bottom (that's all), then the plastic covering opened up. While looking at the shredder from the top (without the plastic cover) you will see a small black plastic trigger mechanism in the middle (this is what the paper hits to start the shred) this piece will push a copper filament onto the motor to complete the "auto" circuit. Well the fall had caused the plastic trigger to dislodge on one side... I popped it back into place and closed it up, and its working fine now. It was really simple to fix.

Shedder one works


This is an issue with the paper feed sensor which may be a electronic eye or a mechanical switch if it is mecanical you may just have to jiggle the switch a few times, occasionally paper may get stuck behind it not letting it activate. If it is electronic you have bad sensors or bad pc board and you'll have to contact the manufacturer for further info.
