Favorite with shredders... put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the page ... you may have to do this a few times if you have never oiled inside the cutting blades.

My jaws shredder appears to get overheated every now and then and just stops running, is this normal? also, when I shred alot of paper sometime it will gets jammed and I have to go back and forth on the...


Remember this is a "consumer" shredder NOT a commercial shredder..... if you shred for 5 minutes you should give the machine 10 minutes for the motor to "cool-down"...it will not hurt if you also shred some paper with shredder oil poured onto the paper so that the oil lubricates the cutting blades...lastly; if the shredder is rated to a Max. of 10 sheets(as an example.)..you will have fewer problems if you only shred about 70 % of that number. ***Think of your car...it will go 100m.p.h.....but how long will it last if you drive it at its maximum speed all the time.????

I have a Royal VF810 crosscut shredder and I have lost the operating manual. How could I get another one?


Doubt if you will get a new operators manual on a "consumer" model machine....remember this is a "light-use" shredder...only run the machine at 70% of its maximum rating...lubricate it occasionaly by putting shredder oil on a sheet of paper then shred the sheet of paper...only run it for a "max" of 5 mins then give it 10 mins to "cool down".....

Shredder won't shred


They may be a compression switch on the lip where it sets on the bucket. This it to prevent it from running while its off its buckette. If this is not all the way in it wont run. Look for that clean any safty switch or buttons you find.
Slap it with your tax booklet and call me in the morning. Good luck DFD

More than likely, there is a lot of paper debris jammed between the cutters and strippers. If you are handy, try the following.
Disconnect the power.
Disassemble the shredder from the lower bin to access the cutting head. Clear the head of all debris with a small screw driver or ice pick. Reassemble and oil the cutters with shredder oil, being careful not to get any oil on the optics. This should solve the sluggish problem. Oil on a regular basis, before every use.

Shredder won't shred - all paper is cleared - works intermitantly


Run the shredder in "Reverse" mode for 15 seconds.
Oil the cutting head thoroughly as this is a High Security shredder.
Test it at 4-5 sheets.
They always overrate the capacity but if you want to keep it operating, shred 3-5 sheets max.

Running for serveral minutes could be due to dirty optic sensors. Unplug the shredder, remove the top (2 screw underneath front and 2 in back). Remove the sensors (they have a little pushbutton tab) and clean thoroughly with a soft cloth. Re-insert the sensors ensuring they lock in place, reset the top cover and test.
