Question about Elcoman 240 SS4 Shredder

1 Answer

Sometimes runs ; sometimes stops

Elcoman Kobra S100 Special shredder stops turning regularly. On inspection, the drive belt between the drive motor and the first flywheel has 5 crenelations stripped from the inside. Does anyone know where I can find a new drive belt?

Our shredder is a Kobra 240 ss5. It will turn backward but not forward. The circuit board has a burn on it. Can I order a new circuit board for it?

By now you mave resolved your prob however.... yes you can order replacement PCB's.
The part # is 27.045
Before you just replace the "blown" pcb you should also check the motor; or, when you install the new pcb you will just blow the new pcb also.( if the motor is faulty.)
To check the motor you will need a multi meter.
There are 3, red & blue wires. Using black as the common wire measure black to red..this should be approx 6 ohms, the same when you measure black to blue. Between blue and red you should get about 12 ohms. If you get a short on any of these readings then the motor will have to be replaced BEFORE YOU REPLACE THE PCB.
You don't say what country you are in..these readings and the part number are good for the USA &Canada.
The part # will be different if you have the 240 ss5 E/S model.( has a blue light on the panel.)
Hope this helps.

Kobra 240SS5 shredder. Reverse but no forward.

Prob;em will either be the "eyes" (try cleaning them) if that dosn't work they may need replacing OR it could be a defective pcb inside.

Paper getting stuck once shredded

As a test try shredding into a small box or even the cabinet itself with the bag holder and bag removed. Just to see if these are causing the problem.
The bag Full switch is activated by an arm which is pushed up by the pressure of the shredded paper in the bag as it fills.
When a sheet of paper is shredded, after the trail end of the paper goes past the "eyes" the machine should still continue to run on for a few seconds to drive the shredded paper out.

Was working nicely, just lubricated, was working on good size job, emptied basket, return for more shredding, motor comes on and sounds like turning but will not feed

do the cutting heads turn? if they are not turning when you hear motor running you have a bad gear, belt or drive pin. most of the gears are palstic. when they brak no load sound, no grinding noise. you may have to take it off the stand , flip it over, messy. then unbolt the bottom cover and inspect the drive. make sure it is unplugged

240s4 KOBRA: Will switch on but wont swich to reverce or shred

You have possibly lost the PCB inside the machine. If you are capable you can take the top cover off(Make sure its unplugged.) With a multimeter you can check the motor...normally black, red,blue wires.
Black is common...should read about the same between black and red and black and blue. If you have a short cct in either direction the motor is faulty. Check the motor befor replacing the PCB. ...A bad motor will just blow a brand new PCB.
you can contact for parts.
