Re: Jam

There is a microswitch in the rear of the catch bin that can wear and spop activation. the shreder lid can be removed and switch positioned lower. alternatively, the notch the switch engages on the bin can be built up with epoxy.

Where can I download an instruction manual for a Royal MC5 - 5 sheet maximum microshredder? How do you fix a tight paper jam?

Hit reverse if got one, or take it apart carefully cuz it's sharp, remove blades and try to clean it then, it's like replacing the cutting wheels they called I think, make sure your motor is not fried. Good luck

How do you clear a paper jam

Typically the best way to clear a paper jam in a paper shredder is to run it in reverse then forward repeating this as many times as necessary to remove the jam (sort of the same as rocking a car back & forward to get it out of a mud or snow rut). If that doesn't work then the only option is to take the shredder apart and clear it that way!
Good Luck!

Can you take apart a fellowes PS-12C

In case of a paper jam , which may occur if the shredder is pushed beyond its specified capabilities, press the control switch to the off [O] position and empty the basket if full. Then:
1) Press and hold control switch in reverse [R] position and attempt to back paper out of shredder.
2) If shredder jams in reverse mode, press control switch to automatic [I] position and attempt to continue shredding operation.
3) If shredder jams again, alternate control switch slowly between reverse [R] and automatic [I] positions to attempt to move jammed paper completely through shredder.
If you are unable to clear the jam using this method, turn off and unplug the shredder; remove the wastebasket from cabinet and carefully remove any paper extending below the cutting cylinders; empty the wastebasket; insert wastebasket and repeat jam clearing procedure.

Plastic got in shredder won't work,would like instruchions to take it apart to fix

Take out the paper bin. Look for and remove any screws holding the top part of the shredder to the base. Take the top off, turn it upside-down and you might be able to remove the jam. To take the top apart, remove all of the screws that are under or near the edge. Look out, it gets very messy when you take it apart!
Fellowes sells replacement gears for some of their shredders.

Paper won't feed

You most likely have a little tiny paper jam in the roller. Your best bet is to remove the screws and very slowly pull it apart so no parts are moved or fall out. then just take your time and look around for the jam and remove it.

How do I reassemble On/Off switch?

The actual switch will not fall apart. There is a black part that is integral with the switch itself. This is about 1/4" to 3/8" wide, and can only be seen from inside the unit. Then there is a plastic piece that is part of the top shell. The hole in the plastic piece has to fit over the black part of the switch, so when the plastic piece is moved, the switch on the inside of the unit will move with it. SO, center both parts, and put them together. If you actually took the switch itself apart, you would have needed a soldering iron, and there would be no purpose for doing this.

Huge paper jam ( piece of a checkbook)

Throw it out and buy a new one! staples won't replace this unit and your gonna have to take it apart and clean the gears.
Also tell your employees to stop reversing the drive gears with paper inside the bucket it only reverses the flow and jams the unit.
I would buy a cross cut shredder next time.
Hope that helps.

try saturating left over paper with shredder oil and let sit for 4-5 hours or more this should soften paper enough to remove easier although it may be a little messy
