You'll probably have a KSS240 (typo?) and my guess is that the
flatcable attached to the laserunit has to be replaced.

First you can try to lubricate the metal guides where the laser assembly moves.
Those things usually dry out and the laser assembly doesn't move as freely as it should.
I use STP car oil additive.
It's excellent, and holds very well to moving parts.
