1 Answer

I have Royal crosscut papershredder - Model VF810. It won't operate because the red "overheat" light is on. I've waited for at least 30 minutes, but it still won't work. Is there a reset button or something else I can do?

If you "unplugged" the machine and let it sit for 1/2 hour and the "overheat" lite still won't go out then you probably fried the pcb inside the can call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts advice.

I have a Royal VF810 crosscut shredder and I have lost the operating manual. How could I get another one?

Doubt if you will get a new operators manual on a "consumer" model machine....remember this is a "light-use" shredder...only run the machine at 70% of its maximum rating...lubricate it occasionaly by putting shredder oil on a sheet of paper then shred the sheet of paper...only run it for a "max" of 5 mins then give it 10 mins to "cool down".....

Royal CIA12 crosscut shredder overload light came on.

Unplug immediately and wait 20 mins to see if motor will "cool-down"...when plugged back in hopefully the Overload light will be OFF....unless you have it completely jammed up in which case try running it in reverse if the overload light is OFF.
If the overload light wont go out you may need Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for further parts assistance.
