Question about Brother HL 1430 Laser Printer

Re-assembling a Brother HL-1430

I've had to completely disassemble a 1430 laser printer to clean out an ant's nest, and on putting it back together, I cannot remember how to replace a small black L-shaped piece of plastic that I took out very easily in the early stages of dis-assembly?

It's driving me nuts, just doesn't seem obvious where it came from and the printer gives a red alarm LED - presumably because this piece is not in its right place.

Can you help please?

I had the same problem only this piece of plastic fell out of the machine when I tipped it upside down to have a look at the fuser unit.
After much searching and enlisting a printer service person who did not know how to fix it, I tracked the location down.
It is a door open sensor.
It is located top left corner at the front of the printer.
What it does is when the front cover is closed this piece of plastic opens the flap which is covering the laser unit.
This prevents a service person from accidentially running the printer with the laser unit uncovered.
I also managed to find service manuals on a site called feedroller.com
PS not sure how someone thought it was in the middle of the paper assembly....

Yeppers..that is a tab-holder, which is part of the paper management assembly..sad to report, it goes inside the machine, about half way back in the area where the paper tray is located..i advise you get a service manual on this, or maybe a local printer repair person, to assist..

happens to the best of us..i work on printers from all sorts, and this is something that can happen to anyone for less important reasons..

Is that the small piece at the back? It has 2 little click thing that you need to push then insert it to the back of the printer. It would be better if you can send us screenshot or pic of that part?

There is a paper jam...how do I unjam it


Hi dorothyhover,

Here's how you would clear paper jam from your Brother HL 1430:

1. Remove the paper cassette completely from the printer.

2.
Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

3.
Open the front cover and remove the drum unit assembly.

4. Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

Do not remove the drum unit assembly with additional force at this time if you cannot remove it easily. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper cassette.

5. Open the rear cover and pull the paper towards the back of the printer, the fuser may get dirty with toner powder and may result in toner scatter on the next printed page or pages. Print a few copies of the test page until the toner scatter on the printed pages clears.


6. Close the rear cover and install drum unit assembly, close the front cover.


Hope it helps.
