    I thought I had put that information in, but looks like it does not include it all in the description. Anyway it is an ALKO GARDEN SHREDDER 2400 Watt looks like this one
    what happened was I stuck a stick in which was too tough as it turns out, machine kept going but the blades got stuck, switch machine off (usually switches off itself but this time didn't), removed stick, started up machine, then it started smoking and smellling. I assume I have burnt something out or something is rubbing or I have damaged something electrical?? Could it be the bushes??

Hi astens, sounds like your high speed adjustment is out of adjustment. You didn't say what engine is on the machine. The high speed is usually on the bottom of carb bowl. Turn it in(clockwise) 1 half turn and see how that works for ya. You will probably need to adjust it a little eigther way to smooth it out. Hope that helps.

Why does my shredder get really hot and start smoking?

These shredders are not made to run for continuous or long periods straight. Check your manual and it should tell you the maximum continuous run time. And most importantly are you oiling the shredder? Without oil you are going to burn it out and cause all sorts of problems.

You should open the top up so you can see whats going on inside. take a good look at the pcb and see if its going "black" in any places(not a good sign) Remove any paper lying inside the unit...check and see if its paper, the pcb, or the motor that is "smoking"...have you ever lubricated the cutting blades.???
Once you determine where the problem is you can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts and prices if needed.

Return it to the place you purchased it for the motor has a problem and can be a fire hazzard. You should be able to run 6 sheets through at a time without it slowing down.

Clattering sound, then smoke

the clattering sound was probably a stone or something that was being bounced around by the rotating bush. It jammed which caused the belt to slip and cause the smoke you saw. You can probably get away with finding and clearing the jam but I would inspect the belt just to make sure.
