Re: How to Replace Dell Fuser?
If this is a 5100, then the replacement of the fuser is quite simple.
1) Before removing the fuser:
Disconnect the A/C power cable from the back of the system.
Press the right side latch button, and then rotate open the outer duplex assembly.
CAUTION: The fuser reaches extremely high temperatures during operation. Allow for adequate cooling time after the printer is powered off, before removing the fuser.
2) Lift the two fuser assembly locking levers.
3) Grasp the two fuser handles, and then lift the fuser out of the chassis.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It's best to remove the fuser to get access to it. This video will show you how to remove it, and which levers to move to release tension in the pinch roller to clear the jam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjyggtF8d1k After you remove the jam make sure to do a close inspection on the internal roller (use a flashlight). You're looking for any scratches or "dents" in the colored roller (sometimes a deep red/brown color sometimes blue) if there are scratches you are probably going to have to replace the fuser. The imperfections on the fuser roller will show up on your printed pages. If you do need a new fuser you can find them for $160, or the entire rebuild maintenance kit for $375 http://www.fastprinters.com/productdetails.asp?PRODUCT_ID=DELL-UG190
Open the fuser door and pull the fuser unit out, top of printer or top rear. Should see 2 oval looking handles I believe they are blue, grab the handles and pull the fuser should pull straight out. Then re-seat it back in to printer. And by the way do this procedure while the unit is sill turned on.
The code is caused by a small switch under the fuser unit not sensing the fuser unit is in place.
blue plastic locking tab on the left side of the fuser has a small
catch on the bottom of the fuser. The catch is supposed to slip thru a
space in the steel plate under the fuser unit and secure the fuser in
place. As the catch slides forward under the steel plate, it pushes on
the trigger of the sensing switch, closing the sensing switch and
letting the copier know that the fuser is in place. (there is also a
similar locking tab on the right of the fuser but it doesn't trigger a
sensor like the left one does)
1) The fuser gets very Hot!! Let cool for 10 minutesafter turning off the power and unplugging the copier!
Pull the two blue locking tabs forward and remove the fuser unit.
Reinsert and push back on the tabs to lock back into place.
Sometimes just reinserting the fuser will allow the catch on the locking
tab to function correctly and push the trigger on the sensing unit.
Turn the copier back on and pray the error code doesn't reappear..
Mine reappeared. Evidently the catch on the fuser unit was still not
pushing the trigger forward, causing the copier to surmise that no
fuser unit was installed.
At this point, you should buy another fuser unit or take your copier to an authorized Dell repair center.
This is most commonly caused by a failure of the Fuser unit. However, in rare circumstances, this can be caused by the Fuser Control section of the SMPS, or the fuser temperature monitoring circuit on the Main Board. There is a closed control loop: 1. AC voltage is supplied to the Heat Lamp in the Fuser from the Fuser Control section of the SMPS 2. The temperature of the fuser heat is monitored by a thermistor (mounted on the Fuser) connected to the Main Board. 3. The Main Board determines if the fuser temp is too low, correct, or too high and signals the Fuser Control to increase, maintain, or decrease the AC voltage to the Fuser sorry io say but you had to replace the fuser call dell costumer support and tell your model no. ask for fuser replacement and they will do it . Hope your printer is in guarantee period otherwise you had to pay. REGUARDS

Here is your problem.
50.X FUSER ERROR
50.2 error - Fuser Failure (Abnormal Warmup).
Perform the following steps:
1. The connector between the fuser and the
printer is not connected properly. Reseat
the fuser. Check the connector J5013
between the fuser and the printer. Replace
it if damaged.
2. Break in the main thermistor. Turn the
printer off and remove the fuser. Measure
the resistance between the fuser
connectors J5013LA-2 (MAINTH) and
J5013LA-1 (GND). If it is not within the rage
of 330k ohms to 50k ohms (at ambient
temperature), replace the fuser.
3. Break in the fuser heater. Measure the
resistance between the fuser connectors
J5013L-2 (FSRH) and J5013L-1 (FSRN)
with the fuser removed. If it is not within the
rage of 12 ohms to 52 ohms (at ambient
temperature), replace the fuser film unit.
4. Faulty DC controller. PCB Replace the
DC controller PCB
you will have to get an HP certified technician to replace the fuser assembly.
