Question about Cross Infoguard Shredder SX102M

1 Answer

Broken gear I've taken the machine apart, removed one of the metal gears that has broken teeth & turned it around. I have everything working again but I can hear the part where the a couple teeth are completely gone. It's working but isn't going to last as long as I'd like without a new gear. Does anyone have a replacement gear? It's the one second from the motor on the hex-shaped shaft. del

Motor runs but doesn't take in the paper

Most likely there is a stripped or cracked gear or a gear with broken gears inside. The only way to find out is by taking it apart and looking at it. There are about 3-5 gears inside and it would be easy enough to spot which one isn't turning. As always.. Safety first.. When taking apart the shredder, unplug it. When you want to test it, plug it back in and BE REAL CAREFUL because you have AC and will have moving gears, and shredder teeth.
If you don't want to go through the hassle then it might be time to buy a new shredder. Good luck.

Runs but doesn't take paper in and shred

IF the cutters aren't moving, then it's probably a broken/stripped gear or a gear with missing teeth.
Look inside the slot where you would place the paper and see if the cutters are moving. If they are not moving, then it will have to be taken apart to find out why. (Probably a gear problem.)
Good luck

The paper won't feed into the machine; but the motor runs

When the machine is running; look inside the opening where you put the paper and see if the cutting shafts/teeth are turning. From what you say it sounds like they are not turning ... but the motor is running. "correct??" So that makes it sound like you have a broken gear or teeth stripped off one of the gears in the drive system inside. You will have to open the machine up to see exactly what has gone wrong, once you know which gear/gears are damaged you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

If the motor sounds like its running but the cutting shafts are not turning then you have likely stripped the teeth off one or more of the plastic gears inside.

Royal SC800 power shredder I need the large metal gear.

I have the SC800 apart. My problem is not fixing it. I just need the part. The large gear which appears to be made of pewter has a couple of teeth missing. If I could find the part I can fix it. It's a very simple machine. If you know where I can get the part I would appreciate you letting me know..

Plastic drive gear from motor broken

I have a left over set of these plastic gears that I can send to you. The motor bracket on mine snapped. I took it apart to check. It looks unrepairable.
