You shredder needs a new shredding head. I'm sorry to say. You will be better off getting a new shredder. I am a senior level shredder technician in CO. I have seen this problem many times and it is an expensive repair. Hope this helps. If you have further questions please respond.

My shredder says it will shred cd's and dvd's but when I tried, a cd went in 1/2 way and now is stuck. Motor runs but nothing happens in forward or reverse


You can turn the shredder over (after unplugging the power cord) and see if you can pull the pieces out from under side.

Sometimes the motor gear teeth break off, and the motor just spins but wont go forward or reverse.
Hope this helps.

My ativa hs 2000 paper shredder will only run in reverse


If the motor will only run in reverse and, you are stating that all the buttons are working. then most likely, internally the motor has burned out try tapping the motor lightly with a small hammer while the shredder is plugged in and on in the forward position. if the motor begins to move it will lead you to the answer of a shorted out internally motor.

Why is my ID Armor ID-XC200D making a horrible noise when I shred?


kkrenn641:

That "horrible noise" is probably caused by the shredder gears meshing improperly. If you disassemble it again and look carefully at the gears, you will most likely see that some are not mating properly... Usually the motor gear and the first idler gear that meshes with the motor gear. If those two gears seem to be separated a bit, or slightly mis-aligned look carefully at where the motor mounts, and you may see that the plastic "bed" where the motor is mounted has melted from heat from the motor. This is caused by using the shredder too long without letting the motor cool down. You may be able to shim the motor housing to realign the gears, if you have the patience!

Infoguard-10 sx100m motor runs, sounds like gears are turning , goes both forward and reverse. i cleaned all of the teeth, looks clean, but won't accept paper. i am handicapped and am having a hard time...


Hello,

When motor is running, look to see if the cutters are turning. The cutters can be seen by looking into the throat of the shredder. If the cutters aren't moving, the gears may have been stripped and shredder needs to be repaired or replaced.

Good luck...

Our shredder motor is working but it will not go forward to shred. It will reverse. I've unjammed every visible paper jam but still nothing. HELP!


If it wont run forward but does run in reverse you may have lost the PCB inside.... contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance and pricing.

Switcheson fine but does not accept paper


Does it run in reverse???? Does the motor work.???
If it runs in reverse then the motor is probaly OK....does your machine have "eyes" that automatically start the shredder when the paper is inserted??? if it does then they may be "dirty/dusty"...try cleaning them ; if that dosn't fix it then you may have defective "eyes" or defective pcb.
