Question about Royal 85X Shredder
Royal 85x crosscut shredder, worked fine until 2 days ago when we cut up two Credit cards. Yesterday wanted to shred a few papers, light for regular operation turns on (Green) when switch is in forward/on position. When paper is inserted one hears a clicking sound when 'light barrier' in slot detects the paper, but nothing happens. Reverse, top position of the switch, typically turned the light on and the motor in 'permanent'/un-clog on position, neiter happen now, light's not on nor does the motor run. Unplugged the unit and left sitting for a day to no avail. Just took the motor/cutter unit off, removed bunch of debries in the motor/cutter compartment after unscrewing it. Nothing obvious such as pieces broken off or 'stuck' paper. - Should the cutting rolls move, or how can one move them to check areas not easily visible for stuck material? Especially credit card plastic pieces I suppose could lock it up, no?
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
