    I just sent this Email to Royal:

    Dear Royal representative,

    We have a Royal Cross-cut Shredder which I have repaired on four occasions and now is the time to give up as it is now not reparable. The problem began when the retaining screws which hold the cutter in place to sync with the gears became stripped and thereby causing the cutters to twist and jam. Prior to going out to purchase a replacement unit, I would like to be assured that Royal's products are of a better durability than the Royal which we presently had purchased from Costco. There are two reasons why we are really disappointed that we did not receive a longer life of this unit, first the waste of money and secondly that our landfills sites are being indulged with products that are a result of our throw away world. We have always treated this shredder with utmost care and therefore should have served us for many more years as this is a home and much is being shredded.
    Model VF1000
    Lot#: 060234587

    Looking forward to receiving your comments.

    Shredder is beginning to jam up. Found broken plastic pieces coming from the roller area. Sounds like it ready to stall out. Only had for less than a year and it does not get a whole lot of use in small home office enviroment. Not very pleased with the performance, looks like i will need a new one.

Boston 1690 paper shredder

Boston is an obscure brand for shredders. I tried Googling them and could not find a manufacturer for Boston It may be worth your while to just replace the shredder. It is available from Office Depot but I don't think they would be very helpful with selling you gears.

Paper will not feed into machine

Most likely the sensor in the insertion area is not recognizing a paper when you try to insert it to be shredded.

Try to clean out the gears, and oil the grinders.

Clean around the insertion area to remove any debris from around the sensor. (Be sure to turn it off/unplug it first!).

If you can remove the shredder head/grinders from the body of the shredder box, turn it upside down and clean it that way as well.

Sometimes the little pieces of paper get clogged up inside the gears.

I got some of the dust spray with the straw...inserted the straw deep into the shredder grinder/gears and sprayed.  I got tons of stuff out.

My motor/grinder worked perfect after I did all this.

Good luck!
