Indicates jam. Why won't it move forward or reverse?


Some material that can't be shredded is lodged in the mechanism. The drive motor may have sensed thermal overload and stopped working either permanently or until the shredder is unclogged. Obviously, you will have to get access to the grinding mechanism and (with power disconnected) remove the jamming material bit by bit.

Jammed shredder


If your Ativa shredder has a bin, you can gain access to the shredding mechanism by removing the bin and turning the shredder upside down. With power disconnected, be prepared to spend considerable time picking out bits and pieces of material. Tweezers and a utility knife are useful tools. Eventually your shredder will be back in working order.

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.


I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

Thanks! I have a 7x Crosscut Paper Shredder, Model # PCUA:29053U. The teeth are jammed due to I believe a build up of paper. I have run it on reverse & tried to pick out the paper. The motor runs but...


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.

Stopped working. will operate in reverse only


When shredders only work in reverse, it typically means that they are really jammed up. First thing to do is to UNPLUG the shredder. Then, take a look at the underside of the teeth. You will most likely see a bunch of paper sticking out, if so, try to remove it. I would advise against using your fingers, though. 
As a last resort, get someone who is mechanically inclined to take the head unit apart to remove the jammed pieces. Unfortunately, once this happens, it often spells an early demise for the shredder. I have gone through three of these things for the very same reason.

Jammed shredder


try shredding a old card, carefully but forcibly push the jammed plastic strip through the teeth.
might be faulty alignment of teeth, a factory defect!

Shredder motor seems jammed


must disassemble feeder unit and visual check for jam. The debris may be a part of the shredder that has broken off.
