Question about Royal 85X Shredder

1 Answer

I have a GBC 85X shredder. One of the small plastic gears in the gearbox has lost some teeth, so the whole mechanism is not working. Where can I buy either a replacement gear or the whole motor + gearbox mechanism (part # ASYP10684X)?

There are four ways to solve this problem.
1 Ask the retailer to get you the part
2 You can buy it on line from any of the electronic part dealers like Amzon.com, Best buy, Radio shack, E-Bay etc.
3 Go to the support section in your product web site and and buy the same.
4 You can contact the local service dealer to help you in providing the part.

Shredder making a squelling noise


Royal shredders have a nylon worm drive gear that is designed to loose teeth rather than allow an overload to damage the whole gearbox. When the motor's worm drive hits an area where teeth have been removed it screams because it is no longer loaded!

This part can be replaced if you are handy with fixing mechanical devices and know how to safely do so. Spare internal parts can easily and quickly be ordered from Royal by calling 1-800-222-2310. I find their support people to be outstanding.

GBC #SC32 auto stop not functioning


take the shredding portion of the shredder off and check in its teeth (while unplugged of course) to check that there are no errant pieces of paper or plastic in the device. You may even want to try and blow out any possible paper stuck inside with some canned air or something.

My omnitech shredder OT-NXC8PA stopped working after clearing a paper jam. Seems the machine is running, but not sucking papers.


I think you just fried your gears. The motor is fine, but the gears that connect the motor to the shredding mechanism have had the teeth flattened up. No teeth on the gears = not shredding papers. The gears are made of plastic anyway.

Sometimes spraying shredder oil on the cutting teeth wil work.

You should shred paper with a light weight machine oil poured on the paper to keep the cutting teeth working freely.

Good luck.

P.S. If this doesn't work then just take the head off and cleanj/lubricate any bearings you find.

Gbc shredmaster 5550x: this machine has badly worn plastic gears & one has teeth missing. Is a rebuilt drive unit available?


For an answer to this question, you will have to inquire through the manufacturer, or perhaps, there will be a advertiser who does this type of work whose name will come to you along with this answer. Look around on this page right now.

FixYa.com is not a parts or repair depot.

Hello, I have a GBC Shredmaster 6120S


Though I only work with Fellowes shredders this sounds like a paper feed sensor issue. If your unit has a mechanical paper feed sensor you can try to jiggle it in and out to see if any paper may have become jammed behind switch. If the unit has an electronic sensor it may simply need to be cleaned with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.
