Royal CIA 12X Paper Shredder

I had a problem with this shredder, it froze up I took the entire cutting Mechinism out and found a frozen gear on a shaft, I was able to remove it polish the shaft now it spins fine but I can not figure out how to get the 2 rotary
cutter shafts close enough together so I can put the whole assembly back together.

If your machine has an electronic paper feed sensor try cleaning the sensor with a qtip dipped in rubbing alchohol.

Try soaking the cutters with soapy water, yes it works. Oil after you are done.

The cross cuts are not working

It sounds as if the gears that turn the cutters is either broken or is turning freely on the shaft w/o engaging the cutters. If this is the case you will have to replace the gear(s). The cost of the gears may entice you to buy a new or refurbished shredder. Below is the manual for your machine, it may be of some help-just maybe.

My shredder quit working.

First thing you have to do is clear all jammed paper. Second..try running machine; if the motor runs and the blades turn put some shredder oil into the cutting blades as lubricant. If the motor wont run you have probably blown the pcb because of too much paper... to get replacement part call Royal at 1-800-524-0799.

This cross cut shredder stopped cross cutting. Does anyone know how to fix it.

Broken gear, or C-clip came out & gear slip off shaft, you won't know in teal you take out cover and look.

good luck and plug before working on!

Shear pin ??

You most likely have several teeth broken off the drive gear that drives the cutting block. Not too difficult to replace but you need some special tools. A deep well socket (I think it's about a 3/8") to remove the cutting block and replace the broken gear. The gear should be available from a Fellowes dealer, or they might sell it to you direct if there is no dealer near you.


Let me know if this helps.

Royal HT700x will not cut help

Mine makes noise in both directions but is not cutting like it used to. So I took it apart tonight and found a stripped gear in the gear reducer train. The motor and some of the gears makes noise but then the connection to the cuttings is discontiuous. Now I need to try to find a spare part. This may be your problem.

Shredder suddenly runs only in reverse

Sounds like the sensor/switch that detects when the basket is full of clippings is stuck in the "full" position. UNPLUG this potential finger-eater and poke around on the underside with a pencil or something.
