I did that in my shredder and had to use the backwards option for a long time...forwards then backwards and pulling out the material little by little. It is a slow can sometimes pry it a little but make sure you don't insert anything while shredder is operating. I always unplugged mine when trying to tug the stuck paper out of it. You don't want to take any chances. Good luck!

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?

Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

The auto stop on my Royal VF850MX paper shredder won't turn off. I was using it and it was fine. Now it won't turn off automatically.

I took my Royal HG120 apart and cleaned it good. Now the auto shutoff works fine. The Royal has 6 screws that I removed (make sure it's unplugged) and then vacuumed it out and then took a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and cleaned the sensors that are located in the middle of where you insert a piece of paper. I was surprised at how much paper was amongst the electrical parts. Perhaps I shouldn't use a bag... just the plastic container. The bag may push paper into place it shouldn't be. I also should empty it more often and not try shoving the paper down to get just a couple more pieces of paper shredded. Good luck!

My Royal VF880 shredder is not working. It is not shredding anymore and makes a very loud racket when you try to use it.

Likely-hood is that you have taken the teeth out of a plastic drive gear inside...suggest you open it up to see what is broken then you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

My shredder does not shred in forward mode only reverse mode. how can I fix it?


You would need to replace the motor in this, what type of shredder we talking here?

There is a lever that engages FW and reverse many times people jam these things and the lever also becomes effected. I would need the make and model and further details but it sounds to me its going to need a fix-in or a new shredder. I hope its not one of those heavy duty shredders because your looking on spending some cash there then.

Best of Luck

update me with make and model asap

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?

Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Yes a plastic gear broke off that turns all to make it works i need this part but i don't know where to get it it is under warranty but the company never calls me back their number is 1800-639-3803...

OK sorry I won't be able to help..I am only familiar with "Royal" and "Elcoman" shredders and those are the only places I can guide people to access parts....your tech solutions will no doubt be different gear sizes etc, etc. Sorry.

Royal VF1012mx Shredder Runs and will not shutoff

Try using compressed air to blow off the sensors , as they may have paper dust on them, I f that doesn't work try Alcohol and a Q tip to clean the sensors, as alcohol leaves no residue.
Please be sure to unplug the machine before attempting any repairs.

Champion shredder WQ120D will not shut down after shredding but continues to run . must move to center position to shut down

If you look at the blades, some are likely bent (probably the middle ones) causing the machine to not drop the clippings which makes it think that there's paper to be shredded. It's a common problem with this shredder and there's no fixing it because the company doesn't offer replacement parts. The shredder is an overpriced piece of junk. I bought mine at Walmart but our local store doesn't even carry them anymore because of all of the returns they've had.
