Question about Royal VF1012mx Shredder

2 Answers

Royal 10x Crosscut Paper Shredder (PCUA: 29054E) paper jams.

How do you remove paper stuck in the cutters/in between the rollers. I tried using tweezers, etc., and nothing seems to completely remove the stuck fouled paper.

Are any of the plastic fingers, that push the cut paper out of the gap between cutters, missing? If so, then the gap that finger clears, will jam with paper. I had this problem with my Royal PCUA 29054e, where some of the plastic fingers had broke off, which resulted in paper accumulating in those gaps, causing the machine to bog down. I haven't found a source yet, for replacement fingers.

Try soaking the cutters with soapy water, yes it works. Oil after you are done.

My Royal Crosscut Paper Shredder, Model # PCUA:16326H-FE will not turn on. Is there something that I can do?


Paper shredders have a main switch and a couple of safety switches, the first of these is the one buried in the slot so the cutters are only moving when sheet paper is inserted and this switch has a very light return spring and flimsy linkage that easily jammed with paper scraps or easily displaced or sometimes it gets broken. The other switch prevents operation unless the unit is standing squarely on a container. Now my shredder is a few years old the unit has to be repositioned a couple of times before the latter switch engages.

The units benefit from being taken apart periodically and the buildup of dust and paper sraps cleaned out and maybe a brief spray of a dry lubricant around the moving parts.

How do I remove paper stuck in my shredder????I have a Royal 10X Cut Paper Shredder. On label it has PCUA:29054E 10x 00324040. How do I take it apart to remove the wedged paper???


You may have to turn it upside down and go to work with tweezers and a utility knife to remove every bit of paper from the mechanism. I have found that 10X rating to be overly optimistic; the equivalent Royal shredder I am using currently groans and complains if more than a few sheets are fed in at a time.

I have a Royal CX 66 Crosscut shredder and attempted to shred 10 pages. The unit shredded 1/2 of the papers and the other 1/2 are stuck in the shredder; the reverse mode will not release the papers. Is...


The Royal cx-6 shredder is a small consumer shredder rated for "up to 6 sheets at a time" so yes it will jam with anything more that 6.
If running it in reverse won't work you will have to try to open it up and see if you can manually turn things to get the paper back out...there is no other way if it wont run in reverse...hopefully when you have the paper removed the machine will still function.

If the motor runs but the cutting teeth dont turn then you have stripped or broken a gear in the drive train. You can get replacement parts from Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

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

Lubricate the machine....put shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and shred it...do this a number of times to get the oil down into the cutting blades... x-cut shredders should be oiled regularly.

Royal 10X confetti shredder


More than likely, there is a lot of paper debris jammed between the cutters and strippers. If you are handy, try the following.
Disconnect the power.
Disassemble the shredder from the lower bin to access the cutting head. Clear the head of all debris with a small screw driver or ice pick. Reassemble and oil the cutters with shredder oil, being careful not to get any oil on the optics. This should solve the sluggish problem. Oil on a regular basis, before every use.
