Question about Royal HT100 Shredder

1 Answer

The royal cross cut shredder HT100 overloads and it's been oiled, what else could be wrong? Initially, it was packed with paper and label glue got stuck on the cutting mechanism that initially stalled it. I cleaned off the gears and oiled it, then found a gear out of alignment. I adjusted the gear back into place, but now it overloads and it only makes a clicking sound.

It goes to overload very quickly, sometimes on the first try. What can be done to correct this?


Suggest pull plug. Remove and turn over unit. Clear out any remaining cuttings cleaning out any remnants such as credit cards and other plastic. Careful the blades are sharp

Purchase pre-oiled sheets of shredder paper or shredder oil from an office supply. Apply oil across mouth of shredder and cycle in reverse. Operate as normally after adding oil.

Try not to over load and add shredder oil as the unit starts to bog down in the future.

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.)

ROYAL 150 MX WILL ONLY TAKE 2 SHEETS


Have you ever "oiled" the machine.
ALL cross-cut shredders need to be oiled to help clear out the paper dust and debris generated during the shredding process.
Pour some shredder oil across the cutting shafts while it is running and occassionaly put some oil onto a sheet of paper as you shred it.

Every time we insert paper, even one sheet, it goes to overload. We cleaned out all paper from inside and its still doing it.


Have you ever oiled the cutting shafts....all cross-cut shredders require some amount of lubrication....the more you use it the more it should be lubricated. You can get a bottle of lightweight shredder oil from the same place you got the machine.

Have you ever oiled the machine...its a cross cut shredder and you are supposed to regularly lubricate the cuttting shafts with shredder oil.

Overload error message?


1. make sure your waste bin is regularly emptied.
2. This is a cross-cut shredder...make sure you regularly "oil" the unit with shredder oil.
3. If the overload light will not go off at all,... then you have either a PCB or Motor problem...would suggest you contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

I purchased a Royal Shredder, Mod. VF1700MX, Ser. No. 080245302 on Feb. 25, 2009. It was sent back for repair, under warranty about a year ago. I never shred more than 5 sheets at a time.It now cuts out on...


Have you ever "oiled " the machine...99% of cross cut shredders have to be oiled... get some shredder oil and squirt it onto the cutting blades where you put the paper in...this should be done with a certain frequency dependant on the amount of shredding that you do.

Royal VF700 won't barely shred one sheet of paper. It givexs the overload red light when 1 sheet of paper has just barely started to be shredded.


Royal. Haven't heard of that brand. Could get in contact with tech service, but it's probably easier to grab a new paper shredder.
Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper


Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.
