Check the switch (thin shiney metal strip on the side) is in correct position with full flap bar. A schematic drawing at GBC web site can help to locate these parts.

The bin full light is illuminated and it beeps. We have changed the bag so that it is empty and the sound and light are still on. Help please.


Paper shredders are messy. Fine paper dust covers everything, get a can of compressed air and clean under the shredding wheels. Looking up from the bottom check for any sensors that might be plugged.

Shredder keeps stopping and the bag is not full


there are three switches on most shredders that can cause them to stop.
1) a jam
2) door ajar
3) bag full
If you can rule out a jam, and the door ajar light goes on when the door is open and off when its closed, and the shredder has not been undergoing very heavy use (they will overheat and shut off, then be fine in 15 min or so)
then its a safe bet to say that it has to do with the switch that tells the shredder that the bag is full (when you take out the bag you can see a metal flap hanging down at the back of the top opening)
the way that the shreddings fall can often trip the swtich that tells the shredder that the bag is full, shake the bag a bit so the paper resettles that often fixes it.

I can't get the door open do empty the shredding


You have probably got the bin so full it is stuck/jammed full of paper and you now can't remove it...this is a "consumer" model machine and to keep cost low they do not provide a "bag-full" light on the panel...you should regularly empty the bin so that the shredded paper does not totally jam the bin and in extreme cases then get caught back up into the cutting machanism and blow the pcb inside the machine...check your "users" instructions to remove the bin.

Paper getting stuck once shredded


As a test try shredding into a small box or even the cabinet itself with the bag holder and bag removed. Just to see if these are causing the problem.
The bag Full switch is activated by an arm which is pushed up by the pressure of the shredded paper in the bag as it fills.
When a sheet of paper is shredded, after the trail end of the paper goes past the "eyes" the machine should still continue to run on for a few seconds to drive the shredded paper out.

Paper shredder jammed


Yes....this is a consumer model....NO BIN/BAG FULL INDICATOR....to keep costs down, you will just have to try to get the bin out a little at a time and slowly reach-in and "fish out the shredded paper...once you have enough out the bin will come out...hopefully the backed up paper has not jammed the machine and blown the PCB inside.....if it has give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.
