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.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

Shredder makes a horrible sound when shredding.


Just put a lightweight shredder oil on some paper and shred the paper...do this a number of times this will get the oil down into the cutting shafts.

Shredder is making a noise, but is not shredding when I put paper in.


Look into the machine as you try and shredding a single sheet of paper. Are the cutters rotating? If not then it could be that your machine has a damaged drive gear. The motor will still spin but will not have gear teeth to engage. It's time to call a tech in.
If they are turning, you may have something blocking the paper path.

Shrededer motor remains on after shredding is complete


Blow out the sensors with some compressed air.(Computer Duster) they are likely covered in paper dust and the machine believes paper is present.
Please be sure to unplug the machine before attempting any sort of repairs
Hope this is of some help

Shredding no more


if the unit is pulling paper thru but not shredding your cutters have separated for some reason. If not pulling paper thru but machine is running you probally have a broken gear causing cutters to no longer turn you may hear a clunking or grinding noise or gear may be stripped if shredder sounds like it is spinning freely. Contact manufacturer for parts availability.
