Hi,
Shredders have a reputation for being very unreliable...they often just quit like that...
You can try also to blow it out with a can of compressed air, but it probably won't help... not much else that you can do...

THE BLADES ARE FULL OF PAPER. SHOULD I TAKE IT APART AND ATTEMPT TO CLEAN IT?


In order to maintain a functional paper shredder, you should clean it out and oil it at least once a month(depending on usage) if not every time you fill it.
I would advise against trying to disassemble the actual blades to clean them out if that's what you mean by "take it apart."
What you can do is unplug the machine, lay the blades up and get a pair of tweezers and remove any large pieces of paper/shredding that might be caught in there.
After doing that you should oil the blades with any lubricant that your owner's manual recommends.
Most shredders suggest a non-aerosol/biodegradable oil such as vegetable oil.
Do not use WD-40 or other canned spray lubricants.
I've found that dripping the oil straight into the blades can be very messy so a good alternative is to lay out a piece or two of scrap paper and soak it in the oil. Then run the paper through the blades as normal.
They also sell varieties of this here: http://www.staples.com/Staples-Shredder-Lubricant-Sheets-12-pk-Shredder-Sheets/product_602400


It doesn't have to be a headache to maintain but proper care can make your shredder last a long time.

Royal sc120 shredder wont run.. Paper jammed in head and cannot remove it--no reverse or forward will work.


This is the most common problem..."too much paper".
If it won't go in either direction the only option is to open the cutting head of the machine(after unplugging) and to manually try to turn the gears to un-clog the paper.
Once you have cleared the paper from the cutting blades see if it still turns...see if any plastic gears have been damaged. Plug it back in and see if it runs...if it dosn't you may have blown the PCB in which case you should contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799 regarding replacement parts.

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

I have the Royal SC120 model. The shredder does


1 or 2 gears are broken. royal doesn't make many replacement parts for their machines, might try calling royal at 1-800-222-2310. I would recommend replacing unit with a Fellows brand shredder. royal also makes Ativa brand- don't buy it either.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred


Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam completely...you should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.
