SOURCE: Shredder won't shred any more.

You might have broken the actual mechanism enabling it to move forward. To be honest, your easiest solution would be to buy another shredder rather than attempt repair if this is the case, they're so cheap now.

There is a high, loud buzzing noise when you feed more than one sheet into the shredder. The paper doesn't feed and the shredder needs to be unplugged to stop the noise. Do I need a new one?


With power removed, inspect the shredding mechanism and remove all residue. If you shredded coated paper or plastic in the past, you may have to scrape out the remains.

Makes grinding noise and does not pull the paper in or shred. I have pulled out all bits of paper stuck between the teeth. I'm afraid this thing is toast


This type of shredder can get clogged so badly, the material has to be removed with a utility knife. This is especially true if someone has tried to shred coated stock or, worse yet, credit cards. The noise you are hearing is the mechanism bouncing over clumps of residue jammed in-between the grinding "teeth".

When i put paper in it to shred it cuts then stops. ihave to physically hold the shred button for it to shred?


sounds like the paper in switch is either worn, or loose. Not much you can do unless you replace the switch. Look in the slot where you would place the paper and see if you see a small lever. If you do, watch it when you place paper in and get the shredder to work.
Does it happen on single sheets or multiple sheets. If just single, try multiple sheets and see if it works better.
good luck

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.

Shredder OM02750 from Office Max..we have been using it a lot recently and it makes a loud screeching noise when shredding and after shredding that it did not make before. We have used the lubricant...


I had the same problem with a similar type shredder. Unfortunately, the only solution I could come up with after doing a lot of research and trying several diferent things was to buy a new one... good luck

Yesterday when i was using it it started to make a really loud noise. reverse makes the normal noise but on auto it sounds bad. i cleaned out the inside but there is still paper stuck that i cant pull out....


It will not hurt to pour some lightweight shredder oil onto the cutting shafts....depending on how much you use the machine this should almost be part of a regular operation... I normally suggest to customers to pour the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper in an "S" pattern and then shred the sheet of paper....also shredders will work more reliably if you only shred about 70% of the rated capacity...less strain on the motor and parts and this results in fewer jams and longer machine life.

I have a Royal RL170MX shredder. It has started


Try putting some oil on a sheet of paper and then shredding the paper with oil on it.
If that dosn't fix it....take cover off....(with the unit unplugged.) and check plastic gears in drive train.

My shredder won't continuously shred a piece of paper. I have to reverse it then turn it on again multiple times to shred just one piece of paper. Can I fix this?


If it is a x-cut shredder try oiling ( with a lightweight shredder oil ) onto a sheet of paper then shredding the sheet of paper to get the oil down into the cutting teeth....also try cleaning the "eyes" which are in the middle were you insert the paper..( they may be dirty.)

Shredder is making a noise, but is not shredding when I put paper in.


Look into the machine as you try and shredding a single sheet of paper. Are the cutters rotating? If not then it could be that your machine has a damaged drive gear. The motor will still spin but will not have gear teeth to engage. It's time to call a tech in.
If they are turning, you may have something blocking the paper path.
