    orca 3500: reverse works but auto run does not. Green Light is on, bin is empty but will not shred paper? Any suggestions?

  • Anonymous Feb 26, 2009

    I had a similar problem after a few years of relatively light use. The problem was with one of the main gears in the gear box. The counter bore in it's guide bushing wore out and elongated allowing the gear to slip. I pulled apart the assembly, removed and re-installed the bushing rotating it 180 degrees. It was working fine for a whlie but the same problem is showing up again.

    I think this guide bushing needs to be made of a more durable mateial.

What kind of oil is used on the royal orca 9512x?

The shredder does not use oil. The noise probably relates to something jammed in the shredding mechanism or one or more damaged shredding elements.

I have a Royal Orca 9512x paper shredder. When I use it , it makes a very loud ,metallic squeeking sound. How can I correct this? It shreds fine. It's just noisey.

To fix this get some dry Graphite spray lube....

Spray graphite

Spray this on the cutters and sides of the cutters to lube the cutters and bearings....this will stop the noise...and prolong the life of the machine...

Royal Orca 9512x shredder will not run. I have checked the fuse and it is good. Cleared a paper jam and still wont run forward or reverse.

If motor wont run at all then probably the pcb is Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices.

Royal orca wont forward will reverse shredd.

May have paper bits jammed above fixed curved metal surface that spiral cutter slices against.  Need to spend time removing built up material with stiff wire or flat tool.
