Had the same problem. The gears inside the shredder have worn out. I overfed the shredder with too much paper and caused the nylon gears to slip and strip away the teeth. Now the motor won't engage the cutters when you attempt to feed the machine. If your handy you can take it apart, find the gears, contact the manufacture and have them send you out a new set for that model. If not, then you will need to buy a new shredder. In my case, they sent out new gears, it took forever to receive, and when I did get them one gear was the wrong size. I had them send out a new one, and again after weeks it was still the wrong gear, even after sending them pictures! I am now buying a new shredder, and I am spending a bit more to get a more robust machine that can handle more of the workload I need.

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.

My shredder quit working.


First thing you have to do is clear all jammed paper. Second..try running machine; if the motor runs and the blades turn put some shredder oil into the cutting blades as lubricant. If the motor wont run you have probably blown the pcb because of too much paper... to get replacement part call 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

Paper Shredder blades do not turn, even though motor is running


yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?

My techko SH 3112Fa won't turn off


I had the same problem with my Shredded. In the centre of the paper feed slot is a little sensor that detects when you put paper in, it breaks some sort of light beam that is connected to the motor circuit.

Over time paper dust gathers on this sensor, covering it completely and fooling the machine to think that there is ALWAYS a piece of paper being fed into the shredder, the result being that the motor just runs continuously.

Clear the dust from this sensor and you'll fix this particular problem - a toothbrush worked great for me - don't use it to clean your teeth afterwards :-)

FIXYA!!!
