Sounds like the motor is spinning but not turning any gears or cutting shafts.... unplug, take the top cover off to see what is broken then give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts.

Black and decker shredder will only go in reverse, when you try forward it makes a loud sounding noise and will not take the paper


Shredders require maintenance. They have moving parts that make lots of dust.

Check your user manual. Does it require oil or special oiled sheets? If so, you might be overdue for this maintenance. Also, check the frequency of how often you are supposed to oil/add oiled sheets to it.

If it won't accept paper in the forward position, then you might be out of luck with trying to run oiled sheets thought it. If it's still under warranty, see if they can repair it for you.

Shredder won't shred. can't hear motor in the forward setting only in reverse


Silverfox007:

There is a paper sensor at the throat of the machine that turns the machine on when it is activated by the paper when the paper is inserted. Something has happened to that sensor. Unplug the machine and remove the shredder head from the basket. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws at the bottom of the shredder head and open the shredder head. Look where the paper is fed into the machine and you will see the sensor. It may be unplugged/wire broken/sensor flag broken off... You'll know what to do when you identify the problem.

Paper has wrapped around the cutting blades and is packed in tight. How do I clean this?


    • 1 Unplug the paper shredder. Empty the shreds from the collection bin. Pull as much stuck material as possible from the top and bottom of the shredder blades with pliers.
    • 2 Place the paper shredder back on the collection bin base and plug the shredder back in. Rock the shredding direction back and forth between forward and reverse. Pull on the jammed pieces as the shredder shifts between directions.
    • 3 Run the shredder in reverse continuously once the paper jam is cleared. Make two passes across the cutting blades while drizzling synthetic shredder oil. Switch the direction to forward to run continuously for one minute.
    • 4 Lower two sheets of clean paper into the shredder. The paper removes excess oil, metal fragments and debris from the cutting blades. Blast the blades with compressed air when you notice a build-up of small paper scraps that may cause a jam.

Our Olympia paper shredder forward switch does not work but the reverse does.


Hello,

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 sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Good luck..

Motor and cutter do not rotate - strip cut model


Soak the clog with dishwashing detergent and a little bit of water overnight. This should dissolve the paper.

Paper gets jammed. Even shredding just one sheeet of paper. Clicking noise is heard before the red light comes on.


The problem was solved by putting some oil on the top of the shredder and running the motor forward and in reverse to coat the teeth. Thank you.

Can't get shredder to work


Please ... unplug your shredder before doing this.

It sounds like you were on the right track picking paper out of the gears. The problem is that the paper can get really jammed up in there, especially when you use the reverse.

I found that I needed to use a combination of a small screwdriver with at least a 3 inch long blade to push the jammed paper through. The I use needle-nosed plyers to pull the paper through the other side.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if it does.

Blessings,
