That is caused 99 percent of the time by the fuser.
There is a solid aluminum roll and a silicon rubber ( pressure) roller in the fuser. The pressure roller either developes some flat spots from park ( non running) time and over time heat and use cause it to deform and become out of round. What then happens is when the paper enters the fuser it does so with a slight twist, and the pressure of the fuser, for lack of a better term, Irons in that crease during the fusing process.
Gave the explaination so you would understand what is happening.

Here is a picture of the aforementioned broken gear, with a replacement gear visible for comparison:

From a different angle:

The printer repairman said that the plastic gear found in this and similar models can fail after as early as a few months of use. Best of luck!

Bad heat roll drive gear in the fuser. Very common problem.
Look up on google a business called "The Parts Drop". Ask for Britt, part is $13 or $14.

This post is loaded. First of all, there should be 4 screws holding in the fuser. Unless you are talking about removing the 2 screws that hold the pressure and heat roller together in the fuser. 4 screws hold the fuser in the machine, 2 screws hold the fuser together. I am not sure exactly if your fuser was mounted to the machine with only 2 screws, or if that is an accurate post and you removed the 2 screws that hold the fuser frame together. Either way, I seriously doubt the noise is coming from the fuser itself.
Now, the darker section down the middle. I would suggest taking the fuser back out of the machine and looking at the black heat roller in the fuser. If it is not clean and shiney, and has a rough texture to it in the middle, that roller is bad and will require replacing the fuser.
What I am curious about is, the rest of the copy. Is the copy fine outside of the middle? If so then the fuser should fix it. Note if there is some reprint, sort of ghost print in the middle of the page.
The rattle may be the gear on the back of the drum cartridge, It is a small gear that drives the cleaning roller. Pull out the drum and look on the back, there are 2 small gears on the back . One of them may have broken a tooth and is jumping and not rotating properly.
Another problem, as I read this may be the toner cartridge not having the ink distributed properly, To eliminate the toner cartridge as the problem. Remove the toner and look at the roller on the front of the cartridge.It shoud have ink distributed evenly across that roller, No streaking, it should be a dull black fuzzy apperance across the roller.
Firstr check the middle of the fuser roller for the wear I described. Then the back of the drum for the noise, then the toner carteidge for distribution.
If its not fixed yet, let me know. We can discuss the laser and scanner issues. But those are far less likely.
You posted a good one...

What is the cause and solution of a loud grinding noise coming from a xerox workcentre 6605 when printing


Sometimes when the toners get low on toner you will hear the gears grinding, or if there is an obstruction in the waste toner auger. Also check the drum units to make sure they are turning freely.

Check the rails the paper tray sits upon. see if the one on the right side is damaged or dislodged. You didn't say if the noise happened when you printed from the 2nd paper tray.

could be a few things... take out the drum and make sure the toner is put back in. then keep the right side door open and push the silver metal flap down near the back of the door opening (its the interlock that tells the machine the right side door is closed) and see if the noise occurs. if it does then you no its not the drum. so u can reinstall it. try to pin point the source of the sound with the right side door open. could be one of the many gears in back or the fuser (which is above the green colored drum) 4 screws and one wire harness takes off the fuser and u can physically inspect to see if the gears are missing any teeth or the bushings are broken. if all looks well then reinstall turn machine around and take off the back cover (6 screws) wiggle it off and turn the machine on and look closely at all the gears on the left(looking at the back) top side. when it starts it warm up process check to see if any gears are making the sound or cracked. if those gears are shot u mught need a new main drive assembly which is really difficult and time consuming to repair.

Hello everyone I have a sharp AL-1631 copier and when it starts there is a loud clacking sound coming from the rear drive side of unit can anyone aide me in a resolve?


There could be a few things wrong, but you most likely have a worn out fuser rachet gear, that drives the fusing unit or you may have a worn or broken fuser gear on the upper fixing roller. You can order the parts on line for about $20.00 + shipping. The only hard part is replacing the gears... The one on the Upper fixinfg roller is not that hard, but the rachet gear is kind of tricky... Alot has to come apart and then back togather. It is not hard, but you have to remember where the parts go back too. If you are not very comfortable with taking this apart, it may be a little to much to handel... It, could be just as simple as tighting the fuser screws??? Good Luck..

Loud shreaking sound coming from Kenmore Frost Freezer.


The fan behind the molding is hitting some ice build up and causing the sound. Sounds like the timer for the defrost isn't working. Try to turn off the unit for few hours or take off the molding in the freezer compartment and remove the ice build up with hair dryer.

Constant whirring noise and won't print


I do have the same problem with my psc-2175. I opened it and recognized that the problem is with the scanner unit. There is a sonsor in this unit which locates the scanner lamp at the beginning point when you turn it on. When this sensor fail to function, the electric motor, which moves the scanner lamp will not recognize where to stop and it works without any stop. So it pulls lamp unit into its borders and make the noise you hear.
I wanted to let it repaired, but I found out that it will be very expensive and it is better to buy a new set. I have bought it in Iran 1600000Rls (170$), and the repair cost is almost 750000Rls (78$).
If you find another solution please let me know, my email is: decoder84@yahoo.com and my name is Soroush Asarzadeh.
