1 Answer

Orca 3500x paper shredder, not used for a few years, on recent start now makes a relatively loud, clunky, sporadic grinding noise a stalls with only one or two sheets and stops (jams). Does running through a sheet or two of course grit sand paper help.

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.

Is there any oiling that needs to be done to the gears or motor?


If you are the type that can weild a screwdriver then do the following...
about once per year open the machine up( unplugged of course ) and use an air compressor or a brush to get all the accumulated paper dust out of the inside of the shredder. Put some oil on any moving parts. You should also occassionaly be oiling the cutting teeth/shafts as all cross cut shredders should be lubricated regularly with a lightweight shredder oil. Do this and you will give yourself the chance to extend the life of the machine...last main thing to do is to limit the number of sheets you shred at a time to approx no more than 70% of the rated maximum...this will put less strain on the motor and gear-train.

GBC Shredmaster 3220S stopped taking paper in and makes a loud,


Myi shredder does the same thing so I removed the screws to see what was going on inside.

What happened is the fan tail that spins when the shredder is in operation and cools the motor had broken off. I got some gorilla glue, adhered the fan back on, then let it dry for 24 hours. Replaced the screws, turned on the shredder on it worked just fine. The loud grinding noise stopped and the shredder worked wonderfully. I am looking for a replacement part because I don't trust whether the glue maintains its hold when the motor heats up after excessive use . Darlene

Loud grinding noise and doesn't take paper.


sounds like the shaft has slipped off the bearing end support.
disassemble and make sure end plates/bearings and shafts are in proper position, and try again

I was shredding paper when it started making a loud grinding noise and wouldn't accept any more paper. I've tried running it back and forth, but it only goes, maybe half way, either way, and it still...


This is a very common problem. Go out to the hardware store and buy some silicone spray. With the shredder unplugged, spray a good amount of the silicone inside all of the teeth and try to get all sides.

Plug it back in and work it back and forth a few times. It should work better with less noise now.

REALLY loud grinding noise


If it doesn't work at all, there is a reset button for the unit. After it is reset keep the cutters lubed.
