The 1280mx has a circuit that detects the high current when the motor is jammed. The 5 watt, 0.5 ohm resistor/fuse (marked as R1) that is part of this circuit blew on my unit. No visible signs of failure, you have to remove it from the circuit board to test it. When R1 fails more current than normal passes through the R2-1k ohm resistor; need to check if it also failed.

A piece of junk mail from a religious organization had a "medalion" in the envelope. I put the whole thing in the shredder- royal VF1012mx. Now it is jammed makes a terrible noise.


Unplug the machine.
Remove the waste bin.
Remove 4 screws inside underneath to take cutting head off the basket/cabinet.
Turn the cutting head over and remove 6 screws that hold the top cover onto the bottom. Turn the unit back over and remove the top cover...remove the medallion if jammed...check the gear train to see if it has broken any teeth in the drive gears.
If you need parts contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

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.

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

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.

Shredder problem


You obviously have to take it apart to remove the coin. Remove the four screws from the top cover and carefully lift it up, making sure not to damage the circuit strip connectec to the board.

Red overload light is on


Try pouring some shredder oil into the throat where you normally insert the paper and run the machine in reverse.Put machine back into ready condition.
Put a piece of paper in the throat just enough so the machine should run but not all the way in so that the cutting mechanism catches the paper...all you want to do is make the machine run forwards but not actually be feeding in any paper.
If it wont even run in the forward direction you may have a pcb prob...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.
