Question about Royal 10X Shredder

1 Answer

Royal shreader pcua-29053u Damaged Gear

Only one of the gears has a tooth damaged. This gear is one of the large metal gears (about the fourth reduction starting at the motor helical drive shaft gear) The gear pitch diameter is about 2 1/4 in od x .375 in face. This is the one with the hex head drive shaft. Is there a place where I can obtain a replacement part?

The original unit must have been a misbuild because the origin of the problem was one of the four screws that secure the drive motor had come out and jammed in the gear that is damaged. Screw appears to be a #10-32 x 3/4 in long. Unit now works but clunks as it cycles past the damaged tooth. It will damage other gears if this continues.

Driven helical gear damaged


You are probably out of luck as the manufacturers usually don't sell any parts for lower-cost shredders. I would see if Office Max has a repair or trade-in program.

Is there a gear kit for the Fellowes MS-450CS Micro Shredder?


Hello Jay

I have the same problem. I found a place that sells nylon gears. They are not to good in responding back though.

This is the email address and the lady's name is Delores
sdp-sisupport@sdp-si.com

The cog below is shattered on the spindle and the bottom one, the skew spindle has chewed a hole in the cog in one place. I would like them all replaced with bronze.

NEED A REPLACEMENT PLASTIC GEAR THAT DRIVES THE UNIT


This Shredder is an Aurora AS650C Rebranded for Walmart as Durabrand. You can call Aurora at 800-327-8508 8-5 PST and tell them that you need one of the plastic gears for the WM6X Durabrand, they know exactly what your talking about, and will offer you two gears. The one that is in contact with the drive motor is gear "A" and the Plastc reduction gear that drives the steel gears is gear "B" Hope this helps

Broken plastic gear tooth - Fellowes P55-C Shredder


I suggest using Belzona (metal compound). Mix it with its hardner, paste it over the broken gear (dont worry if it gets over a couple of other gears. Let Belzona sink and dry (4-5hours). Get a Dremel drill with a fine blade on it and cut accurately where the teeth are meant to be. Voila, you have fixed your gear.

Ativa dx200d Shedder Plastic gear


Drill 3 or 4 holes along the path of where each gear tooth is missing. The holes should be sized to about 75% of the width of the tooth at its base. Drive appropriate sized screws into the holes. Clip off the tops of the screws to match the original tooth height. File the sides of the screws at an angle to match the original tooth sides. You are essentially replacing the missing gear tooth with three or four screws filed to match the tooth profile.

Only solution - Don't buy a FELLOWES shredder.
It is ludicrous that they cannot (will not) supply a spare gear wheel when there are thousands of instances of them failing. Or even think outside the box - fit metal ones?
