Makes noise but won't shred

I switch it to FWD and it makes noise, but it does nothing...won't shred..makes noise in reverse too...but since it won't shred, it makes no difference that it will switch to reverse.

    Hi,

    Thanks so much for the idea but my impatience got the better of me & I threw it away months ago. Thanks again.

Had the same prob with a Schneider shredder. The roll pin that secures the nylon driven wheel to the blades shaft was sheared. Easy fix in a way but original pin was a metric size.

My royal sp12mx will work in reverse but nothing happens when i insert paper to shred. light is on


there is a very small lever between two cutters around the middle that activates a microswitch to turn it on when you offer paper to be cut
the problem will be in that area ( switch or lever broken) as it's purpose is to switch on the cutters
reverse is straight drive from the control switch

Turns on, << works,won't shred when paper is inserted. doesn't seem to be jammed


Is it running in reverse? A lot of shredders have a switch for fwd/rev. Otherwise maybe the gears are stripped (plastic).

Omnitech wont shred papers.


Sounds like its jammed? Have a really close look for staples, paperclips etc stuck in the drive gears or blades

What kind of oil is used on the royal orca 9512x?


The shredder does not use oil. The noise probably relates to something jammed in the shredding mechanism or one or more damaged shredding elements.

Fellowes HD-10Cs won't shred. Power gets to machine because it will manually reverse when reverse button held. Can't get the sensor lights to work. Tried overide switch for sensor light. Held in...


Unplug from mains electricity.
use a cotton bud dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean the sensor
light(s) and heads
Give a quick spray to cutters with WD40 Replace - turn on - and run in reverse.
If all else fails, contact the maker

Yesterday when i was using it it started to make a really loud noise. reverse makes the normal noise but on auto it sounds bad. i cleaned out the inside but there is still paper stuck that i cant pull out....


It will not hurt to pour some lightweight shredder oil onto the cutting shafts....depending on how much you use the machine this should almost be part of a regular operation... I normally suggest to customers to pour the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper in an "S" pattern and then shred the sheet of paper....also shredders will work more reliably if you only shred about 70% of the rated capacity...less strain on the motor and parts and this results in fewer jams and longer machine life.

Ativa X1000 paper shredder that doesn't turn on


took the shredder section apart, cleaned out the gears of paper and a broken mount (plastic piece), and hand turned the electric motor to free it up. After assembly, the ready light works and so does the FWD/REV directions for shredding.

Will not shred, but makes clicking noise, will run in reverse


Possible that the actuator which feeds paper in has gotten affected. With the unit UNPLUGGED try looking to see if some paper has gotten wedged in there. If you can disassemble it you might be able to see the problem. Good Luck.

My shredder stop shredding. has paper caught in itposted


You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.
