When I bought my last shredder it came with a small bottle of oil. The instructions said to put a few drops of oil on the blades now and then.

I think the oil was actually canola oil.

Read your manual to see if it suggests any lubrication.

Not sure of the model number but my paper shredder was purchased on Jan 16 of this year and quit working the middle of July except for the reverse mode. I need help.


no
we don't sell anything
there is something stuck in the blades
in the middle of the cutters there is a small plastic lever that is the micro switch for the forward action . paper is stuck and that lever is now not operating the microswitch to drive the cutter motor
either that or the lever has broken off, again not activating the micro switch
If you want repairs or warranty , contact the manufacturer direct by phone

1600mx wont run in forward over load light comes on


Most common reason is that there is paper would around the cutters, imposing an additional load on the machine. You will need to access the cutter assembly (disconnect all power) and manually remove all of the paper that has impinged between the cutters.

If you have run any labels or paper with gummed strips through the cutters, you may wish to consider throwing this one away and buying new. (In all fairness, it "can" be cleaned, but it is going to be a real dickens of a job to do).

If you decide to keep your shredder and clean the cutter assembly, remember to oil it on a regular basis per the instruction manual.

As for me, I use Fellows shredder oil
Fellowes Shredder Oil 12 oz Bottle with Extension Nozzle 35250
and oil my machine every time I dump the cuttings. I run a bead of oil in a serpentine pattern over a sheet of paper and then just shred it. (If you have never oiled the cutters, it may be too late to do so now. Something you need to do on an on-going basis).

How do you remove the top to see the gears in a Royal 16CDX cross cut paper shredder. The overload message is displayed, and I don't know how to get it unjammed.


a possible solution is to UNPLUG the unit, reach in from underneath and start pulling stuck paper out. On mine (different model) I can remover the paper receptacle bin and reach up to remove stuck paper. this usually is caused by overloaded bin pushing shredded paper back up to cutters because it is overfull......BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST !!!!!

ROYAL 150 MX WILL ONLY TAKE 2 SHEETS


Have you ever "oiled" the machine.
ALL cross-cut shredders need to be oiled to help clear out the paper dust and debris generated during the shredding process.
Pour some shredder oil across the cutting shafts while it is running and occassionaly put some oil onto a sheet of paper as you shred it.

This shredder overheats after 1 to 2 thin weight sheets of paper. Says it does up to 10 sheets but can not handle more then 1 sheet at a time. I have cleaned and cleaned the cutters with no improovement


Have you "oiled" the machine ever.????
Cross-cut shredders require occasional oiling with "shredder oil" to help clear out debris that is made in the shredding process from the cutting mechanism. Get some shredder oil and pour it directly across the cutting blades where you insert the paper... this should help...the occassionaly pour some oil onto a sheet of the paper to be shredded prior to shredding it.

My royal ag10x cross cut shredder is losing steam - labors thru 4 pages at a time and i've never done any maintence in 8 years. is there a way to sharpen the blades?


May not be the blades that need sharpening.....try putting some lightweight shredder oil on a sheet of paper then shred the sheet of paper....do this 2 or three times and see if it helps. It won't hurt to put a good bit of oil on the paper.

Paper gets stuck on the blades so it does not shred the paper all the way


Your shredder may be getting dull ... there is no practical way to sharpen the cutting blades.

Shred fewer sheets at a time and use shredder oil available at the big box store and other fine establishments. Follow package directions when applying the shredder oil.

I hope this helps

Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper


Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.

Can you lube a shredder?


Yes you can lube a shredder. The larger one require lube of the cutter blades pretty simple just oil in where the paper goes. Smaller ones generally don't mention lubrication because they are considered throw away.
