My Staples 16 sheet Microcut shredder starts the shredding operation after I push the button and continues the shredding operation after I shred a paper. How can I get the shredding mechanism to stop...


It's a tedious process to clean it out. Most auto switch shredders use either a tiny little lever or an optical sensor in the paper feed slot. Usually removing the shred head, picking all the paper out and blasting all the dust out with air will clean it up. Then run a few sheets of paper with shredder lubricant (basically clean mineral oil) to oil the blades and it should be good to go again. Just be careful cleaning that cutting head. I've donated many drops of blood to office equipment over the years.

My shredder runs non stop, when I insert paper to shred , it stops... I push reverse, it works , pull paper out and runs non stop.......


Sounds like a bad or stuck sensor, acting as if it is always seeing a peice of paper in it. Check if you can find it and maybe it is just stuck to the on position..

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. :)

Paper always packs up in the blades and it will not cut more than 1 sheet at a time. Sometimes not even that. Any solutions for this? I constantly have to dig the paper out of the blades, even after...


All x-cut shredders should be oiled. Buy some shredder oil ( this is a lightweight oil ) from your local store then pour some of the oil across the cutting blades where you insert the paper. After putting the oil in run the machine in reverse...this will help get the oil all thro the cutting mechanism. Then start shredding 1, then 2, then 3 etc, etc sheets at a time...when you hear the motor starting to "labour" to take the sheets thro'..then you have just about reached the point where "thats its maximum". You should occassionaly shred a sheet of paper with a bead of oil on it ( in an "S" pattern) to help keep the mechanism lubricated. Running the machine at about no more than 75% of its maximum capacity and regular oiling will prolong the machines life.

My shredder overload light comes on immediately with only one sheet of paper inserted and it won't go.


Try running the machine in reverse and putting some shredder oil onto the cutting blades to loosen things up. Then try running the machine in the forward direction but hold the paper in the eyes but dont let it go into the shredding blades...see if it runs forward.!
If it will do this then slowly try paper 1 sheet at a time..but put some shredder oil onto the sheets of paper you are shredding.
If the overload light still comes on without even letting you shred 1 sheet of paper then you likely have another problem...maybe the motor or pcb..you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Overload with one sheet of paper..nothing jam inside .very clean


Should not have a problem with 1 sheet....so...have you ever "oiled" the machine.????? Pour some shredder oild inside to lubricate the cutting blades and try to run the machine in "reverse" for 20 secs or so...then put some oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper.

Auto Shut off doesn't work anymore


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. Either of these should be located in the center of the paper throat.
If neither of these help your paper feed sensor or your pc1.gif board has gone bad and you will have to contact your manufacturer for further parts availability.
