You may have something stuck in there or someone ran something that was too thick through and the drive gears were damaged. If it is something stuck the sound will be higher pitched (usually) and may stop when you run smethign else through. If it is the gears they ma not last and probably getlouder when you put stuff through. If you put your hand on the side when running paper through you can probably feel the vibrations of the gear. All it takes is a stable or a few too many sheets of paper and so on and the gears can be damaged. Not much you can do except replace it if thats the case. If it is under warrenty you can try but they usually will say user abuse and do nothing.

My 99 Plymouth breeze has to get a jump just to start Everytime wat is the problem and how do I fix it

Weak battery is my guess. You haven't mentioned any cran (GRR GRR), clicking noises, lack of dashboard lighting, or absence of sounds of a fuel pump noise (before the starter kicks in.)

Shredder is making a loud noise when attempting to shred a document.

The shredding mechanism could be clogged to the max or someone tried to shred a credit card or plastic coated material.

What kind of oil is used on the royal orca 9512x?

The shredder does not use oil. The noise probably relates to something jammed in the shredding mechanism or one or more damaged shredding elements.

Makes noise but won't shred

Had the same prob with a Schneider shredder. The roll pin that secures the nylon driven wheel to the blades shaft was sheared. Easy fix in a way but original pin was a metric size.

Your Power steering pump may be loose. This may be reason for the belt shredding and will make the new belt shred too pretty soon.
