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 wires...black, 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.

The motor has a feature to go forward and reverse and thus the forward (paper in) control has been compromised. The problem can be the switches. A rocker switch when in one position may control the forward motion or backward motion, therefore if the switch fails only one side is working. Then there may be two small switches on the so called rollers (Cutters) that sense the input of paper into the cutters thereby starting the motion and shredding procedure. If a sensing device is broken, only the unaffected switch works. Repair is usually expensive, thus a replacement is in order.

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.

I have a tech solutions shredder. Envelope got stuck. I cleared it out. Now it will go backwards, but not forwards...although the green light does come on when I press the forward button.


There is probably paper, dust, or something still in the shredder somewhere obstructing the sensor. Run it backwards for a minute or so, then turn it over and blow it out, and after unplug the shredder and plug it back in. Then see if it runs forward.

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing

  1. Remove Shredder from paper catcher bin
  2. Remove shredder cover from shredding mechanism assemble (approx. 6 screws on bottom of cover)
  3. Separate shredding mechanism from bottom cover (may have disconnect circuit board from assembly and other wiring from switches , sensors, etc,)
  4. Remove motor gear cover (approx. 4 screws)
  5. Separate shedder main drive gear from motor step up gear by pulling gear out
  6. Turn shredder mechanism up side down to access the cutting blades
  7. Use an adjustable wrench to turn the main drive gear to see stuck paper
  8. Use a needle noise pliers to remove paper shreds
  9. Repeat step 7 and 8 until all shreds are remove and cutting mechanism move smoothly
  10. Reassembly before testing shredder
  11. If you remove only some of the shreds, the motor may seize up and strip the plastic gears from step up gear.

Sounds to me like a the main control board is fried. That smell was probably a resistor or a rectifier burning. The fact that you hadn't oiled the shredder in 3 years didn't help, probably put an extreme load on the drive motor. You might be better off, shopping for a new shredder, unless this is a high end industrial strength model.
