My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

Shredder goes 1/3 and stops has to be reversed the forward also paper comes out punched but unshredded


its the combination of plastic parts in the shredding device . the plastic tongs part craks off then the metal binds . paper builds up in that area .
its unlikely you can fix it .
youll put ur eye out trying.

Hello my nane is Tom. The shredder doesn't work. It will run in reverse but when I turn it to forward it run for a second or two than stops. I looked and I can't see anything jamed in it.


I got mine to work by running it on reverse for a moment then sliding it to auto. It stopped. Then I did it again. This time auto ran just for a second then stopped. I did it a third time but I had a sheet of paper ready in the feeder. Ran on reverse. Slid it to auto and it took the paper and shred it. I did it a fourth time. Reverse slide auto and feed shred the paper. Fifth time Auto shred the paper without reverse. :)

Shreds in reverse only


I think there is a shredded buildup on the bottom. Unlpug the device ... turn it over and clear out the residue you will find there.

Sometimes I find the addition of shredder oil during the shredding process helps to eliminate this problem. Get the oil where shredders are sold.

Royal 85x crosscut shredder stopped working


Some shredders aren't designed to shred anything more than paper. Credit cards, staples, paper clips and the like could have jammed it up. Try running the shredder in reverse and oiling the blades. More help with paper shredder oil here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Paper-Shredder-Oil

If you can't get the paper shredder up and running, it looks like you might have to pick up a new paper shredder. Paper shredders can be pretty cheap though, great guide to cheap paper shredders here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Paper-Shredders

Paper jam. Ready lite comes on but shreder will not start shreding


Common problem with paper shreds blocking the sensors on top and bottom of cutter asm. You may have to remove the top of unit to properly clean. When removing top, be very careful with the short ribbon cable. Lift top slowly and then reach under and disconnect from main board. Once top is off, you can cycle motor by hand and try to remove shreds with needle nose pliers. Of course, disconnect power first.

Royal 9 x cross cut shredder wont go through even two pages thick


Put some shredder oil on the paper you are shreding...shred a number of sheets with oil on them so that the oil gets down into the cutting shafts/teeth.

I have a SX102M paper shreder that wont shrede


It's the paper sensing microswitch. Wire a small toggle switch and drill a small hole for it on the far right side of the top housing. Just remember that the switch has to be turned off when you are finished shredding or the motor will keep running till it burns out
