Motor forwards rotation is begun by inserting paper in betwen the 2 "eyes" in the paper throat of the shredder. They can become dusty/dirty and not function, if they are clean and yet the motor still will not turn in the forward direction it is possible the pcb inside the unit is faulty...contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Auto reverse


You do not list brand and model but it is typical that the belt replacement is missing the mark in that the reel rotation sensor is not detecting rotation of the reel table and therefore trying to go the other way. The reels have to be turning in play mode. If they do not auto stop or the reverse function thinks the tape is at end.

Front defrost not working


as always, check fuses first.
then scan this car, it will show, mode motor errors. huh?

those are damper. in the heater box.
there are 2 fail points (besides wires)
the control is bad,
or the damper is failing.
The FSM covers this 100%
or at alldata.com

what tech does is makes sure the control sends the signal
the damper (there are 3 types used on all cars)
if its damper motor , the FSM shows the damper tests.
which are unique to Toyota. and a spec, year, 2006.
the mode damper is failing.
the only question is why,
the answer is simple tests. detailed in all FSM of all cars made.

here ill look your up to see which of the 3 type class it is.

your car has a ACC brain, a/c controller, this controller runs the show.
it gets your inputs from the defrost switch and then sends signals
to the mode motor.

FSM quote

Air Vent Mode Control Servo Motor ControlWhen the mode select SW is pushed, the ECU in the A/C control assembly activates the air vent mode control servo motor.
The servo motor rotates to the position (FACE, BI-LEVEL, FOOT, FOOT/DEF, DEF) selected by using the mode select SW,
and moves the damper.
In auto mode, A/C control assembly controls the damper to move to the best position for the conditions without operating the
mode select SW.

I SAY SCAN iT
using any scan tool that suports full Toyota. full scans including
extended factory codes..
i say buy one.
here is one.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001QIUGVI/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

owning complex cars, and DIY, you need a real scan tool
or just guess.

Cobart Automatic Meat Slicer is not working on Automatic mode


To operate the slicer in Automatic mode . . . Rotate the Speed Selector Knob to the desired speed; make sure the Carriage is in HOME position (all the way forward); make sure the Lever is on the Manual position (pointing down); turn the slicer on; start the carriage drive unit by rotating the Lever to the Automatic position (up and to the right). Either of the two speed selections can be used to begin Automatic mode. The speed can be adjusted at any time by rotating the Speed Selector Knob. To stop the drive unit, rotate the Lever down and to the left - to the Manual position. ------------ If you slicer is set on proper automatic mode and still not running on automatic mode then the problem relates to internal motor or the selector knob. But try reset before this. Push the reset button underneath the slicer near the right-front foot if the carriage motor overloads. The reset helps in some problems.But if its not helping then internal connections of selector knob has to be checked.Of the same with motor,the connections of motor to the selector for automatic mode has to be checked.---------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.'

Jandy aqualink rs4: pool has been winterized with the spa left on. when switched from service mode into auto mode system switches back from spa into pool mode (motorized valve switches back to pool mode)....


the only thing you can do since the jandy does not have a "winter" mode is switch the valves off. Once you have the valves in spa mode, there should be a toggle switch on the valve actuators. You can set the switches to the middle position and that will lock them in that position. You will probably have to re-winterize the pool lines.

I own a Royal RL170MX shredder. I turn on the

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

Blades rotate twice but stop-motor continues to run, both forward & reverse mode its the same. Have tried to oil, unblock, run forward & back but to no avail. Can anyone help


Is the motor just humming after the 2 rotations? If you are over oiling the unit, tha shreds will soak up the oil and start sticking to the blades and begin growing a paper tumot in side the cutter shroud, whish in turn will start to slow down and jam the cutter asm and motor. Best to take apart and thoroughly clean.
