My Royal paper shredder model VF1700mx has stripped one of the nylon (?) gears. It looks possible to replace. Are these gears avaliable today?


you will have to contact the ,manufacturers spares or service agent for the brand but generally if a gear has stripped, it is cheaper to junk it and replace it with a new unit

Will not shred no matter what I try to do. I have run it backwards and forward and it still will not shred. Please advise and thank you.


If you want to keep it , I think you should dismantle it make a mental note of how you do it, free any paper jam and spray the cutter blades with a thin layer of WD 40 or similar then you should be good to go unless the motor is burned out from you constant on off testing

Gears are not rotating; motor works though


I guess you have made sure that the cutters are not jammed by bits of paper and card?

Cutter roller moves up & down with a 'popping' sound. It seems as if a shaft bearing has worn out


You will have to open it up to have a look inside...favorite is that teeth go out of the plastic drive gears or a gear cracks completely...once you can see problem contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Nylon drive gear worn on one side


I have been told by the manufactutere that they do not make any replacement parts for their shredders. If it is less than a year old they will replace it.

Plastic gear is wore out. the motor shaft wore it


My friend, if the gear is worn out, your machine is worn out. By the time you get and in stall this part, you can purchase a new machine.

There is a possibility that Royal will sell you the part ... you could check with them. I have never had luck repairing any but LARGE COMMERCIAL shredders. Home and small office shredders are not worth the effort to repair.

Motor runs both forward and reverse, but cutters don't turn


How about a hidden 7th screw? If you look at the sticker on the underside where the bar code is you may see a dimple like there is a hollow space under it. If you can't see it, rub your finger over it to find the hole. Just stick your phillips screw driver through the sticker to get access to this last screw. As for the motor working both directions but the cutter doesn't turn it is most likely a broken nylon cog on the drive gears within the white plastic housing at the end of the shredder. There are 3 or 4 gears - all nylon (plastic), my unit had one tooth completely broken off and the one next to it was worn. I am looking into finding parts but I'm not having any luck so far with local service centres. I have a call into the fellowes main 1-800 number to see if they can help. On reviews I have seen this is a common problem. One reviewer was told they use nylon to reduce noise, but of course it isn't going to last long, especially if you ever jam. Nice metal cutters but the weak link is the drive gears that you can't see.
