I personally work with Fellowes brand shredders, but it sounds like you have a paper feed sensor issue. This may be a mechanical or electronic sensor located in the center of the paper feed slot. If it is electronic it may just need cleaning(qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol. If it is a mechanical sensor check to make sure it has not been broken or it may be stuck because of paper that has become wedged behind it(you may need to jiggle the switch a few times to free it). If none of this works you may have a burned out switch or a bad pcRoyal 85X 10 Sheet Shredder - 1.gif board, contact manufacturer for more info.

Royal 85x paper shredder: The shredder will start to shred but stops shortly after "grabbing" the paper. In order to get it shredding again, I have to put the machine in reverse, remove the...


Sometimes spraying shredder oil on the cutting teeth wil work.

You should shred paper with a light weight machine oil poured on the paper to keep the cutting teeth working freely.

Good luck.

P.S. If this doesn't work then just take the head off and cleanj/lubricate any bearings you find.

I have a paper jam in my shredder. How do I fix this?


Theory is that there should still be some paper sticking up that you can get a hold of.....switch the machine into reverse while trying to pull the paper back out.....if you manage that and it is still working make sure you put some shredder oil into the cutting blades and only run the machine at about 70% of its max. sheet capacity to avoid future jams and extend machine life.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Put too much paper in shredder- it jammed. I reversed the paper flow. Unit turned off. I've cleared the paper jam, but unit won't power up.


Sounds like the waste basket is not pushed all the way in. Your basket will have a piece of plastic (not in the middle, this is just a guide) probably on the right hand edge of the basket. This little piece of plastic pushes in on the safety switch. Take a flash light and look closely and you will see how this works. Take a Q-Tip and push in on this switch and see if it will power up.

JAMS...DOES IT NEED OIL?


You should occassionally lubricate any x-cut shredder, just put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper ; a big "s" pattern of oil will do then shred the sheet of paper to get the oil down into the cutting shafts.
