There is an interlock that prevents your shredder from operating without the bin in place. Something may be stuck inside, preventing the bin from closing the interlock. There also could be a shred of paper preventing operation.
Could be it also overheated / overloaded during this process both are quite common when people are impatient and feed them more than they can deal with or if they go beyond the duty cycle (somewhere in the instructions that you did not read it will say say duty cycle use for 5 minutes nonstop rest for 20 or something similar) In any case it sounds like an overload if you are lucky there will be an overload button hidden somewhere on the device sometimes it is even on the underside of the head press the overload button firmly till you hear it click and try again. If that does not work the internal fuse may be blown (factory only repair)
if this is the case get a newby with a capacity that exceeds your current and future requirements that way you cannot overload it
In most cases it means the shredder is full or something is jammed. Empty the shredding container. If the machine has a "reverse" position on its switch, try running it backwards to get whatever is jamming the teeth to come back out.
sounds like compressor has failed to start and overload is triggered(red light) it could be start capacitor fault or overload itself faulty . If both of these items ok and compressor has power to it then compressor will require replacing.when you switch of refrigeration equipement the oil in the system will drain down to the lowest point and thats normally compressor and if its filled up the suction side of compressor it will cause compressor to lock up (hydraulic)
The red LED can mean one of two things -- either the shredder head is not assembled correctly (did you take the shredder apart recently?) or there is a paper jam inside the machine. Sometimes the jammed paper is far down and hard to see.
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 pcb...contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for further parts assistance.
The 1280mx has a circuit that detects the high current when the motor is jammed. The 5 watt, 0.5 ohm resistor/fuse (marked as R1) that is part of this circuit blew on my unit. No visible signs of failure, you have to remove it from the circuit board to test it. When R1 fails more current than normal passes through the R2-1k ohm resistor; need to check if it also failed.
