Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

Have you looked for hidden staples in the machine. Sometimes they can be hard to spot.

I have royal px110mx and it won't shredd my papers. When turned on and put a paper, it will be making noise and not shredd the paper. Can someone bail me out.


Your Royal shredder probably hasn't been cleaned since the day it was first used. Take a look at the shredding mechanism and you will find bits and pieces of everything. A thorough cleaning should get your shredder working again. Be prepared to spend considerable time on maintenance.

Paper shredder doesn't move due to too much adhesive paper - how to fix it


Before trying anything I suggest, make sure your shredder isn't plugged in.
You will need to remove the adhesive from the rollers. You will need to use a glue solvent on the shredder rollers,something like Goo Be Gone. Personally, I still use Ronsonol Lighter Fluid In the image below I've outlined the supplies you'll need to, hopefully, clear your jam.



25346531-f3timxio4jyou4u0bydnlgfi-2-0.jpg Without disassembling your shredder, the best way to clear your jam is to use Rosonol Lighter Fluid (3), tweezers (4), and dental picks (5).
  1. Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area. Separate the shredder from its shredded paper collection tub.
  2. Turn the shredder head upside down so that the paper output is facing up.
  3. Pour Rosonol lighter fluid on both sides of the rollers near where they come together.
  4. Use dental picks and tweezers to dislodge stuck paper pieces
  5. Turn Shredder head over and repeat steps 3 and 4
  6. Move power switch to the "Off" position
  7. Plug power cable back in
  8. Move power switch to "Rev" (reverse) position, if still stuck move power switch to the "Fwd" position, repeat twice
  9. Repeat steps 1 - 8 until the rollers move freely
Once the rollers are moving smoothly you need to oil the rollers.

Some small bits of paper are stuck in blades


My advice is not to try to take it apart. Try putting a sheet folded in half where the paper is stuck (or an envelope) to see if you can clear it. Go FWD and REV repeatedly. If you can safely pick at the paper from the top or underneath, do so but shredder blades are sharp to BE CAREFUL.

Does t go in reverse?

My shredder won't power on. It is not overheated.


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.

Jammed paper shredder motor stopped won't start


Had this sort of thing happen to me also; sort of. Did you check to see if the shredded paper level alarm has been triggered in the pull-out catch area? Sometimes it forms a pile that trips the alarm before the catch is full. Sounds simple, but check it out. Also check to make sure it's plugged in! I've done that several times, even to the point of calling for help! Did you know the technical help desk always asks if the machine is plugged in first!

Shredder will not turn off


Unplug the shredder from the power outlet. Remove the paper canister. You will need a can of air to blow all areas both from inside of the shredder around the blade area and outside of the shredder around the blade area. After you complete that part, Check the sensor area to make sure no paper is jammed around it. Plug the shredder back in and turn it on. If that fixes the problem, get a sheet of paper and put some shredder oil on it and put it thru the shredder for lubrication.

When trying to use the 160MX crosscut paper shredder, when you insert a piece of paper it starts to go in then stops. If you hit reverse the paper comes back and the edge is cut up. The motor sounds...


Try putting some "shredder" oil onto the cutting blades...they should be lubricated routinely and if they have never been oiled they just may be plugged up with paper dust and debris.

CD shredder jammed with small CD pieces


If you are able to remove the top. It is easy. Usually 4 screw to remove the top. Be careful with the short cable connecting to the board. Open it up pressure clean the entire unt and especially the sensors top and bottom.

Paper Shredder will not shut off when in auto mode


if you answer no to the following question, then I do know your solution: Q: When you unplug the unit immediately after your action of "When those paper complete the shredder does not turn off."...and then plug it back in, does the shredder STILL continue to operate? if no, then the solution is to disassemble the feeder unit and manually unclog the paper sensor.
