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.

Try soaking the clogs with hot soapy water overnight.

160mx will come on but not pull paper


When you say the shredder comes on do you mean that the motor runs...if so can you see in the slot whether the cutting shafts are turning.??? If the motor is running but the shafts are not turning then you will have to open up the unit to see if you have lost teeth on a plastic gear...if so call Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Paper no longer feeds in. Motor works.
