Can be tricky people usally damage the fuser rollers removing this jam with pliers/tweezers, it has concertined and stuck after fuser rollers and before exit rollers it will be stuck on the switch best bet is to dismantle properly and remove fuser then dismantle fuser and remove jam, another thing to be concerned about is why did it, three seneraros, Damp paper going threw fuser dries and crincles(use fresh paper from sealed packet), fuser is worn(have fuser replaced), just a bad bit of paper (just have fuser jam removed. Fusrr runs on 240v, covers break easy

Try changing the toner to a new one it maybe that the toner you have installed is a faulty one. I have had this problem before and it was cured by a new toner. The most common cause for this is re manufactured toner cartridges make sure it is an original then try also it maybe the drum so try changing both.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

Try making prints or copies with the rear door open. If it does not jam your fixing unit (hot area) is functioning properly. With the rear door closed try again making copies or prints. If it jams it's most likely the exit rollers acting up.

1. I've seen the exit sensor break on these units and sometimes the drive gears wear and do not feed properly.
2. If using after market toner or refills this may also coat the exit roller with a film which prevents the exit rollers from feeding parper out by reducing the friction of theses rollers. Clean with fantastic untill cloth does not turn black.

With the front cover still open, you should press Clear ("Replace Drum?" should appear on the display), and then 1 for Yes. Wait for "Accepted" message and close cover.
It may be necessary to remove the drum unit and put it back in, and then, with the cover open, do the a/m procedure.

Paper wont feed from the tray gets jammed every time


Take note:
Usually in the tray paper jams are caused by the pick-up rollers being dirty so clean them using a well wrung wet clothe.
Also the clutch and soleinoid problem. Also take not of the transport system for the paper if there is anything not in its right position any thing loose they must have somewhere you shold afix them.

I've had my brother mfc-7440n for over 2 years and it's been working great until this past week. Now, it has a paper jam every single time I try to print anything, causing me to have to remove the...


85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.


Metal Tab Separation- Pull out your paper tray and examine either end where the paper sits in. If any of the corners are held down by metal tabs, this is your paper feed system. Chances are, you only have one rubber roller or one set of rollers arranged along side of each other. Reach in where the tray goes and feel up. You should feel some rollers. They might be completely round, or they might be shaped like a half moon. Clean whichever part of them you can with the solution, and this should stop your paper jams. It might be necessary to turn them, but don't force them if they don't move freely.

Pickup Roller and Separation Pad-

If your printer uses this paper feed system, you should see a small piece of flat or slightly curved rubber or cork. It would be towards the end of the paper tray, or deep inside the paper loading cavity on top loaders. This 'separation pad' rubs against the paper feed roller, so if you find the pad, you've found the roller. Clean it and your jams should stop.


Three Roller Paper Separation System- Pull your paper tray out, and look for a roller on either end of it. If you find one, clean it. Then look inside the printer where that roller would rest with the paper tray inserted. You'll find another paper roller there. Clean this one also. Finally, look further back or closer to the front of your printer (depending on which way your paper feeds) to find another roller or set of rollers. Clean all of these, and your paper jams will go away

My fax machine keeps jaming on the right side in the paper tray, what causese this


When it jams, does the paper get bent or crinkled? If so, there is probably something lodged in there causing the paper to stop. Could be a paperclip or staple, or maybe another piece of paper.

If there is nothing blocking the paper and it just stops feeding on one side, you may have a tension problem -- springs might be getting old and not pushing rollers together tight enough to feed the paper. If you can take the machine apart, try switching the springs around to see if that makes a difference.

Fax feeder is pulling sheets through at the same time


Sounds like the separation pads in the paper tray are worn out. You can contact Brother and purchase the parts from them. It should be less than $10. as long as the paper is being pulled from the tray it sounds like the rollers are okay.

Auto feeds crooked


Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
