Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I put too many layers of paper in the shredder and it quit. I have opened it up and removed the paper between the blades as best as I could do. I put it back together and it wtill will not start. Have I burned out the motor or is there an overload? Could I put any moisture on the blades to possibly lubricate the wet paper that might still be in the cutter blades. I have a Champion Sentinel MQ6OB Shredder. charmar52@sbcglobal.net

SOURCE: How do I lubricate a Aurora AS702MX shredder?

two ways, first take a light oil (3 in 1) and scribble a pattern on a piece of paper and pass it through the cutting heads do this a couple of times, this can be done as you shred just put a little oil on papers you are about to shred from time to time.

second, if it is a light duty machine, with plastic parts, then pass some waxed paper through the shredder to clean and lube the heads, this also works for your 3 hole punches.

SOURCE: Paper Shredder blades do not turn, even though motor is running

yes, it's the plastic gear that's shredded in this shredder. the drive gear on the motor is metal, as are the gears attached to blades. between is a single plastic gear which is chewed up the instant resistance is great enough. fabulous engineering. not a difficult fix, but where does one find the replacement part?

You have guides or cutter assembly out of alignment. Take it apart and double check before reassembling.

Keeps stopping with overload light on. How can this be fixed


The most likely cause is that the shredded paper, has tightly wrapped itself in the blades. One possible cause is by shredding labels (like Avery Labels) or any paper which has adhesive on it. (Causes it to attach the cut pieces to between the cutters.) It reaches a point where there is so much bound up on the blades that even a single sheet of paper will cause an overload. The fix is simple to describe, but difficult to accomplish. You must go in and manually remove all of the paper bound up in the blades. It's not easy, I found that using a needle nose pliers worked best. Lot of digging and tugging (paper will pack between the blades very tightly). Sometimes a small, slotted screwdriver will aid in being able to pry out bits and pieces (it's not going to come out in anything but small chunks; at best). Don't forget to unplug your shredder before you start; those blades are sharp. This happened several times with my last shredder *Royal), but not once with my current shredder (Fellows). I tend to believe that the better quality shredders are worth the extra money. But any shredder will become a problem if you shred labels (like Avery) or paper products that has adhesive on it. (Another common mistake is shredding junk mail that has any kind of adhesive associated with it. Best to open and check first.) One other thing, ALL shredders need to be oiled on a regular basis. They make special oil for this, you can usually find small bottles of it at Wally World or the like. Best practice is to squirt some shredder oil in a serpentine pattern. over a piece of paper to be shredded and run it through. Do this whenever you empty the shredder bin. (Important for the life of your shredder.)

How do I fix my blades on my shredder?


Try running a layer of aluminum foil between two sheets of paper. See if it shredds, If it does, do it a couple of times, then use shredder oil. It might help to both sharpen the blades, and to keep them sharp longer. It works on cutting blades for scrapbooking cutters and scissors...

Shredder will not turn off


Unplug the shredder from the power outlet. Remove the paper canister. You will need a can of air to blow all areas both from inside of the shredder around the blade area and outside of the shredder around the blade area. After you complete that part, Check the sensor area to make sure no paper is jammed around it. Plug the shredder back in and turn it on. If that fixes the problem, get a sheet of paper and put some shredder oil on it and put it thru the shredder for lubrication.

How to lubricate a Black & Decker Model BD-s600 paper shredder


    • 1 Turn the paper shredder off and unplug it.
    • 2 Clean out the paper shredder. Make sure the blades are free of paper bits and debris. Remove pieces of paper that are jammed around the blades.
    • 3 Spray the shredder oil through the blade opening or throat of the shredder. Spray it in a stream.
    • 4 Plug the shredder back in and switch the reverse button on. Then run it for 10 to 30 seconds in reverse to allow the blades to be saturated with shredder oil.
    • 5 Put the shredder in forward motion and let it run again to disperse the oil thoroughly to all areas of the cutting blades.
    • 6 Feed a couple pieces of paper through the blades to be shredded and absorb any extra shredding oil.

My royal 160mx shredder quit feeding paper. It runs forward & backward when the buttons are pressed but will not feed the paper.


Have a look inside where you put the paper and see if the cutting blades are turning when the machine is running...if they are NOT, then you have probably broken or stripped teeth out of a gear inside...you will have to open it up to check, then you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

I own a Royal ag 10x Paper Shredder — the cutting blades are packed with (unremovable) paper and the unit jams constantly, on even the smallest, lightest paper. Granted, perhaps I shredded something once...


If the machine runs...try putting some nail polish remover into the cutting blades while you run it in reverse...that might clear some of the "glue" then put shredder oilf onto the cutting blades for lubrication.....if its ruined give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

My shredder quit working.


First thing you have to do is clear all jammed paper. Second..try running machine; if the motor runs and the blades turn put some shredder oil into the cutting blades as lubricant. If the motor wont run you have probably blown the pcb because of too much paper... to get replacement part call Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

Paper shredder does not turn off. I have to open


I'm assuming that it automatically detects the presence of paper... .

By opening the drawer you're disabling it from the safety switch. (they dont want you to shred your fingers from the bottom) There is probably a small piece of paper holding the feed sensor down.

If you're confidant, unplug the unit and take apart the plastic cover. Do not remove anything inside. Look for the small switch between the blades which 'feels' the presence of paper. There is probably a small piece of paper wedged between the housing and the switch which would fool the unit into thinking it has paper that still needs to be shredded.
Carefully put your unit back together and happy shredding.
This may happen often, remember what you did!!!
