Continue to alternate between auto and reverse a number of times. Try to shred narrower pieces of paper at opposite ends to see if it can trigger the auto trigger wire. All else fails, carefully take the shredding part apart and you may find a hugh paper jam underneath.

Staples jammed.How can I unjam and open it?

Hi Alan:
You don't specify what make it is, or if it is powered.
If air, disconnect from supply, remove any staples from magazine, and attempt to discharge.
There will be allen head screws holding the firing mechanism assembly together. Always treat it as if it could discharge.
Carefully loosen the screws and try to remove the jammed staples with a small screwdriver. You may need to actually dis-assemble it to get it unjammed.
Clean parts, oil, and re-assemble.
Should be fine.

How do I unjam it?

Sometimes the only effective way to unjam a shredder is to turn it upside down (with power disconnected) and pick out the jamming material bit by bit. It is a tedious, messy job.

My as1200x will only go on in reverse, which makes it hard to load.

Unplug the power cord because that happens when underneath the paper is all jammed. It will not go forward until you unjam the stuff on the other side. It happened several time with shredding to much paper at one time.

Spray with WD-40 or similar lubricant/release agent and let it soak for a while, the remove anything that's jamming the sensor with tweezers and switch the unit on and keep cycling between auto and reverse for a minute or two until unit gets unjammed. Then to reduce friction and to protect the blades use some oil in the feed opening, especially after using WD-40 Good luck

My royal paper shredder is jammed. How do I unjam the shredder?

Normally try to run it in reverse while pulling the paper back out to assist the motor. If it won't even run in reverse then you will have to take it apart to manually clear the jam.

Shredder jammed

For any jammed shredder..try the following.. pull backwards on the paper while you switch the machine into reverse. Try not to tear the paper as if there is nothing to hold onto then you can't help the motor.
If this dosn't work then you will have to take the top cover off(after unplugging of course.) and the try to force the paper backwards out of the machine by turnings the cutting blades or gears in the reverse direction.

Jammed P48C

Try soaking the clog with dish detergent and hot water (seriously !) overnight. Soap dissolves paper.

Oil with 3-in-1 oil generously.

Jammed shredder

Unscrew four (4) screws, two in front underneath top cover and two in back of top cover. BE careful not to disconnect any wires.
Rotate motor gear or belt in reverse to remove jam. Do not put oil on paper because it expands the paper thickness and only makes it worse.
