Unplug the machine.
Remove the waste bin.
Remove 4 screws inside underneath to take cutting head off the basket/cabinet.
Turn the cutting head over and remove 6 screws that hold the top cover onto the bottom. Turn the unit back over and remove the top cover...remove the medallion if jammed...check the gear train to see if it has broken any teeth in the drive gears.
If you need parts contact Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

Pour some shredder oil in the throat where you normally insert the paper...put some shredder oil directly onto 1 sheet of paper and try shredding 1 sheet. If it wont even shred 1 sheet I would ask is the shredder running???

Have a royal vf1012mx shredder that overloads everytime i try to shred.


Put in less thicknesses. Also, put them in in the center. If they are near the edge and they are at an angle, they will flip over themselves and double the thickness.
It is designed for 12 sheets of paper. They probably figure on 18 pound paper, not 20. Adjust what you put in to allow for this.

Red overload light is on


Try pouring some shredder oil into the throat where you normally insert the paper and run the machine in reverse.Put machine back into ready condition.
Put a piece of paper in the throat just enough so the machine should run but not all the way in so that the cutting mechanism catches the paper...all you want to do is make the machine run forwards but not actually be feeding in any paper.
If it wont even run in the forward direction you may have a pcb prob...give Royal a call at 1-800-524-0799 for parts assistance.
