Paper stuck in feed slot

The usual process is to run the shredder in reverse, and the half shredded paper comes back out of the slot. I guess you have tried this and it did not work? Next step is to dismantle the cover and clean out the shredder blades with a small screwdriver and/or tweezers.

I have a Royal 7X Shredder which has developed a problem recently. The motor appears to try and run when paper is inserted, but the blades will only cut a 1/4 inch. The paper will not feed down into the...

I would definately say that you ahve some sort of jam in the lower half of the unit. If this is not the case, and you can see through it from bottom side up, then you have a belt slipping. There are 'toothed' belts that drive these. Most people call them timing belts, if you can get a hold of one or make sure yours hasn't come loose, I would.

Motor and cutter do not rotate - strip cut model

Soak the clog with dishwashing detergent and a little bit of water overnight. This should dissolve the paper.

Auto shred not working. Paper had been jammed it it, but I was able to remove it using the reverse option. Reverse works.

revers usually always works, i could be that the paper sensor is not working. there is usually a light beam or other mechanism that senses that paper is in the feed if this is not activated it will not start the motor.

Most shredders don't recommend use for more than 20-25 sheets in a session. Try using the reverse setting; even though you can't see paper, it's possible that there's some still in the feed channel. If after switching to reverse paper comes out, inspect the feed channel for more paper and clear any you find before trying to feed more sheets. Also in the future, constant use as you've described will burn out the motor.

Shreeder Feeder jammed , appears cleared, makes a humming noise when attempting to feed paper and a similar noise when hitting the reverse button. Help please. Thank you.

It could be one of two problems and they are both usually caused by over feeding. Either the tooth rollers have junped out of their sockets or they are jammed tight with paper which would cause the first to happen also. There are safety switches but unplug the unit any way. Get on the output side of the shreeder and start pulling paper or remove the metal object that was dropped into its throat. Hopefully, you won't have to take it apart to put the rollers back into their sockets.

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.
