Does it run in reverse.????
You may just have dirty "eyes" where the paper is inserted, OR they may be defective.

I've lost the manual what is the maintenance on the VF 1700mx


Shredders need no "real" maintenance......if you can open the top cover once per year and clean out any debris that might build up inside...other than that just occassionaly put some shredder oil onto a sheet of the paper you are shredding to help in lubrication/cleaning of the cutting teeth of any builld-up of dust and debris that take place during the shredding process.

Sometimes spraying shredder oil on the cutting teeth wil work.

You should shred paper with a light weight machine oil poured on the paper to keep the cutting teeth working freely.

Good luck.

P.S. If this doesn't work then just take the head off and cleanj/lubricate any bearings you find.

Royal VF 1000, overloads with one sheet of paper


Try pouring some shredder oil into the cutting blades where you insert the paper then run the unit in reverse for a while. Then put some of the shredder oil onto a sheet of paper and try shredding the sheet of paper. Some lubrication on a x-cut shredder does not hurt.

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.

Shredder won't grab paper


there has to be something in the path.

once you put the paper in it triggers a sensor that rotates the blades and grabs the paper there is nothing else in between the entrance and the blades. get a flash light and lok in to see what is blocking the path.

unless there are some paper in between the teeth /blades, that need to be cleaned out.

Staples SPL-1506X Shredder Issue


I had the same problem. I have a solution but I do not recommend this unless you have technical experience with repairing electrical appliances. I took the back cover of the main shredder unit to expose the wiring (there are 7 screws in total). The bin full sensor has a blue, green, and red connected to it. I clipped the blue wire to defeat the Bin Full error. You can look through the plastic window to check that the bin is full.
