Motor runs but teeth do not


Some of these units use plastic gears on the shredders and motors. They can strip or it could be a shear pin on the drive shaft or gears that breaks when something hard is put in the machine.

Paper jam


Does it sound like the motor is spinning? or does it sound like the motor is bound up? I ask because if it sounds like the motor is spinning, then chances are good you stripped a plastic gear somewhere in the drive system that feeds the steel shredder. I just pulled apart one of these and saw that the motor has a steel gear on it. that steel motor gear meets with a plastic gear, and then the plastic gear meets with steel gears attached to, and which spin the shredder. So if you ever bind the shredder with too much paper, the steel motor gear will grind the teeth right off the plastic gear and it won't spin anymore. If your motor sounds like it's bound, then the good news is that the gears aren't stripped. You'll have to take the shredder apart so you can remove the paper causing the problem. Of course unplug it first before opening it up. They are not overly complex but just remember where the screws goes so you put them back in the right holes.

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.

My shredder Royal RL170MX is not working,makes noise and everything,turn on but the paper is not going in,what can i do


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.
Take the unit apart to determine which gear/gears are damaged the contact ROYAL at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

The motor is working. but it not takes the paper in.


If the motor is running but the cutting shafts are not turning then you have most likely stripped the teeth off a plastic gear inside. You will have to open it up to determine which gear then contact the manufacturer for parts assistance.

Plastic gear is wore out. the motor shaft wore it


My friend, if the gear is worn out, your machine is worn out. By the time you get and in stall this part, you can purchase a new machine.

There is a possibility that Royal will sell you the part ... you could check with them. I have never had luck repairing any but LARGE COMMERCIAL shredders. Home and small office shredders are not worth the effort to repair.

NEED A REPLACEMENT PLASTIC GEAR THAT DRIVES THE UNIT


This Shredder is an Aurora AS650C Rebranded for Walmart as Durabrand. You can call Aurora at 800-327-8508 8-5 PST and tell them that you need one of the plastic gears for the WM6X Durabrand, they know exactly what your talking about, and will offer you two gears. The one that is in contact with the drive motor is gear "A" and the Plastc reduction gear that drives the steel gears is gear "B" Hope this helps
