Question about Xerox WorkCentre PE16 All-In-One Laser Printer
Is it normal for the PE16 (right) fan to constantly work? even on standby?
It is normal, it runs all the time. But normally the fan is so quiet, you do not notice it.
What you need to do is carefully remove the cover from over the fan. On that fan there is a gold or solver label, peel that off, and behind that label, there is a rubber cap over the fan bearing. Pop that cap out and lubricate the fan. It will then not be noticable, it runs in slow speed all the time like your power supply cooling fan on your computer, but you really shouldn't notice it. It's pretty common for that bearing to get a bit dry and make the fan operate noisily.
Make sure you replace the rubber cap over the bearing. And if you have any electrical tape, clean the excess oil off the cap and just put a small piece of tape over it so it does not vibrate off.
That will be your fix. Have done it a few times to that particular machine.

This means that the device is overheating try puting it away from the wall or in a free air space so the unit will be able to cool itself properly good luck windman
