    Paper does not feed into shredder. Gears appear to be moving in reverse. Cleaned out all paper jams didn't fix the problem

You probably have the same problem we do.....the unit vibrated some of the mounting screws loose, causing the gears to disengage slightly and then strip one of them (plastic).....hence, no movement of the shredder, even though the motor is fine.  I myself am looking to Royal for a replacement gear.  I don't want to have to buy another one and it beats throwing the whole thing out....what a waste!  Maybe they should start using some glue on the mounting bolts!

How do I fix the rollers that won't turn when paper is inserted in shredder?

That shredder is as weak as they come - it is probably a broken plastic part inside the mechanism. Recommend you throw it away and get the Amazon Basics shredder, your experience will be much better. Sorry.

I have a Royal MC14MX paper shredder that has worked extremely well for almost 2 years. Until now. I normally leave it turned on 24/7, even when the office is closed. The other day I turned it off and

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and
place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and poke at any compressed paper
wrapped around the blades - can take a while.
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

Cutter roller moves up & down with a 'popping' sound. It seems as if a shaft bearing has worn out

You will have to open it up to have a look inside...favorite is that teeth go out of the plastic drive gears or a gear cracks completely...once you can see problem contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Our Royal 15 mx cross cut shredder will back out material, but there is no green light and no ability to feed in paper. Is this a gearbox problem? Is there anything we can do? Nothing appears to be stuck...

Does it sound like the motor is running forward or is it just "dead" when you try to shred paper..... if the motor is running.....then its a gear...but most likely you have lost the pcb in the machine...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for info on parts and prices.

Shredder rollers do not turn; motor works good; all gears go arou

Will it work in reverse? Can you see the gears are they all moving? Is there a set pin?
