My ROYAL VF1000 PAPER SHREDDER will not shred eventhough i have let it cool done for more than a day, clean it out completely, oiled it and still the rotors will not turn. I do see that when I turn the power on that there is some sparks within inside the machine. Is it possible that I have burnt and blown something connected to the motor that turns it? IF so, how do fix it?

Mine stopped working and the overheat light comes on. it will run in reverse OK, but as soon as you go to forward and put a peice of paper in it, red overheat light comes on right away. Took it apart, inside was totally jammed with shredded paper and dust. Packed tight around the motor, gears, everything. It;s a miracle it didn't catch fire! Poor design. Motor commutator was badly glazed, took apart an cleaned it. Still sparks like mad. I think it's toast! Didn't really last that long (less than 2 years) and it wasn't cheap. It going in thr trash I think!

Sounds like a short,
power cord loose or shorting
motor going bad
disconnect from wall
open and check the plug connection, fix or if o.k
plug and see where sparks are coming from, if motor replace (or just buy a new one)

My shredex Brute 340 will reverse but will not shred. Can you help?


Hi, try this;

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage.

Make sure the paper is engaging the sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Regards.

The auto stop on my Royal VF850MX paper shredder won't turn off. I was using it and it was fine. Now it won't turn off automatically.


I took my Royal HG120 apart and cleaned it good. Now the auto shutoff works fine. The Royal has 6 screws that I removed (make sure it's unplugged) and then vacuumed it out and then took a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and cleaned the sensors that are located in the middle of where you insert a piece of paper. I was surprised at how much paper was amongst the electrical parts. Perhaps I shouldn't use a bag... just the plastic container. The bag may push paper into place it shouldn't be. I also should empty it more often and not try shoving the paper down to get just a couple more pieces of paper shredded. Good luck!

My Royal VF880 shredder is not working. It is not shredding anymore and makes a very loud racket when you try to use it.


Likely-hood is that you have taken the teeth out of a plastic drive gear inside...suggest you open it up to see what is broken then you can contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.

Not a problem yet. Does this shredder require any oiling of the components? If so where and how?


Well considering your question about a shredder is posted under "fax machines" you have a problem...if it was/is a shredder then I would suggest that you occassionaly put some shredder oil on a sheet of paper and shred the sheet of paper to get oil into the cutting teeth....but if its a fax machine then oil on the paper will make a real mess if you put it into the fax. So I hope you know what kind of machine you have 'cause I'm not real sure.

Where do you put the oil in the Fellowes C-420Cx shredding machine ? thank you


The **** where you put the paper in is where you can pour some shredder oil onto the cutting blades....once done, just occassionaly put some oil onto a sheet of paper you are going to shred.

Royal VF1012mx Shredder Runs and will not shutoff


Try using compressed air to blow off the sensors , as they may have paper dust on them, I f that doesn't work try Alcohol and a Q tip to clean the sensors, as alcohol leaves no residue.
Please be sure to unplug the machine before attempting any repairs.

The shredder runs perfectley in the reverse direction, but does not run at all in the shredding direction


I have seen many shreaders that are caked with paper underneath the blades.
After you remove the power, turn the shreader upside down (if possible )and completely clean the area.
Make sure you use shreader oil after you clean it
