You must have a stripped gear. Should be a number in op manual. Take the top cover off and look for the broken gear. Call them an order gear.

Shredder drive gear is probably shredded - hard part to find or replace usually. Could mean a new shredder;-(

SOURCE: Shredder stops in the middle of shredding and won't shred.

I have the same problem with my shredder. I opened it up and found one of the gearwheels had teeth missing. That is why the partial shredding could not advance further. I was able to remove the part and am now hunting for a replacement.

SOURCE: Shredding paper partially

Your cutters have spread apart this could be caused by overloading machine to many times or something may have cracked internally that held them in place.

I just bought the Omnitech 10 Sheet Cross Cut Shredder. Is it safe to shred papers with staples in them?


I don't have that model but have an 8 page cheapo shredder. It takes CDs, credit cards and staples with no whining.

How do you remove the top to see the gears in a Royal 16CDX cross cut paper shredder. The overload message is displayed, and I don't know how to get it unjammed.


a possible solution is to UNPLUG the unit, reach in from underneath and start pulling stuck paper out. On mine (different model) I can remover the paper receptacle bin and reach up to remove stuck paper. this usually is caused by overloaded bin pushing shredded paper back up to cutters because it is overfull......BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST !!!!!

How can I choose between cross cut and strip cut?


DEPENDS ON THE SECURITY OF THE SHREDDED DOCUMENTS YOU WANT.
A MEDICAL OFFICE WOULD NORMALLY HAVE A CROSS-CUT SECURITY SHREDDER SO NO-ONE CAN PUT DOCUMENTS BACK TOGETHER..ALSO BANKS AND LAW FIRMS.
A STRIP CUT SHREDDER CAN BE PUT BACK TOGETHER IF YOU ARE DETERMINED ENOUGH.

Shredder is jammed


hello. follow these steps:

  1. Turn the shredder off at the wall and unplug it. You DO NOT want to be poking round in those sharp blades and have it accidentally switch on!
  2. Take the top off the shredder and place it on a big piece of newspaper, or somewhere you can easily sweep up mess.
  3. Begin by getting a pair of tweezers and taking pieces of paper from one end of the shredding blades. This will loosen it up and give you more room to get the rest out.
  4. Carry on tugging the strips of paper out. It helps if you don't just pull a clump, but wiggle it from side to side. This will get the whole strip out, not just the top.
  5. If any pieces are curled round and you can't free them, cut them with the knife and then tug them out.
  6. Once it's mostly cleared, put the top back on and switch the shredder on. Put it on Reverse mode so it will spit the last bits back up for you to remove.
  7. If it's clear, continue shredding!

[edit] Tips
  • Remember to wiggle the paper, not just pull.
  • Shake it occasionally to get smaller pieces of paper out of the blades.
  • Try not to jam it in the first place (avoid loading a lot of paper or thick sheets of newspaper).
  • Use oil paper or performance oil to lubricate the blades on a regular basis. For an office shredder, medium to heavy usage can require lubrication as often as every three days.
  • To prevent the shredder blades from dulling, remove paper clips and staples before shredding. Shredding CDs and DVDs also cause premature wear & tear. Use the Disc Eraser (www.DiscEraser.com) if you have sensitive discs.

[edit] Warnings
  • Always turn the shredder off at the wall and unplug it! You don't want shredded fingers!
  • Be careful with the blades - they are sharp and you could cut yourself.

[edit] Things You'll Need
  • A pair of tweezers
  • A small, sharp knife

Have a level 6, won't shred


Unplug the shredder. When you remove the cover carefully remove the auto start sensors. There is a little pushdown tab.Clean them with a soft cloth. A kleenex will be ok. Re-insert them, making sure they lock in place. Plug the shredder in an see if that solves your problem.

Shredder won't shred - all paper is cleared - works intermitantly


Run the shredder in "Reverse" mode for 15 seconds.
Oil the cutting head thoroughly as this is a High Security shredder.
Test it at 4-5 sheets.
They always overrate the capacity but if you want to keep it operating, shred 3-5 sheets max.

Running for serveral minutes could be due to dirty optic sensors. Unplug the shredder, remove the top (2 screw underneath front and 2 in back). Remove the sensors (they have a little pushbutton tab) and clean thoroughly with a soft cloth. Re-insert the sensors ensuring they lock in place, reset the top cover and test.
