    I have exactly the same problem. Leaving the printer for many hours makes no difference. Even turning off and leaving a day before turning on again does not help. Occurred about a week out of warrantee.

    I even tried using a hair dryer to warm it up. Site says it won't operate under 50 degrees. There is no way it is below 50 in here and with the added heat, it really doesn't make sense.

    My machine says allow to warm to room temperature, i have left machine on for several days this does not help, perhaps it is a malfunctioning sensor ?

I had the exact same problem, but after some fiddling around i found that if u unplug the USB cord from the printer itself, that it will print what ever you were trying to print,, it will still say low temp... but you can at least get a few prints out of it, even if you do have to unplug the cord every once in a while :)

Why room temperature to high?

Printers run at a high temperature as it is. the ambient temperature in the room can affect the printing quality. If your printer is informing you the room is too hot then it is unable to pull cooler air through the vents to cool the inner workings of the printer. If your room is between 16 and 26 degrees Centigrade it will be happy. If your room is already in this range and it is still saying room is too hot then check your printer's vents. They may be clogged with dust or enclosed in an alcove that does not allow for proper airflow. If this is the case then move your printer or vacuum the vents with a vacuum cleaner.

Xerox Phaser 4500 printer has a U4 fuser code.


From the Xerox Phaser 4500 Service Manual (here), the main problems could be one of:

  • Warm-up failure - Fuser warm-up not complete within 110 seconds after
  • starting.
  • Cool-down error - Cool-down process not complete within 200 seconds.
  • Low trouble temperature - The fuser temperature drops to the low trouble
  • temperature (approximately current control temperature, minus
  • approximately 25°C).
  • High trouble temperature - The fuser temperature rises to the high trouble
  • temperature (approximately current control temperature, plus
  • approximately 35°C).
  • STS circuit open
  • STS failure - The heat rod remains on for at least 10 seconds after warm-
  • up has completed

It could be that your fuser needs to be replaced, but as you can see that code relates to a couple of problems, so even replacing the Fuser might not fix the problem.

If it doesn't even do the warm up checks it is likely to be the fuser because the other components such as STS failure and cooldown won't have had a chance to run..

Keeps saying Low Temperature and wont print

based on the error, the surroundings of the printer is too cold. The room temperature is needs to be raised.
its too cold for the printhead to print, if the error continues, than most likely the printhead needs replacement.

Xerox phaser 8560 error 04,018.48:26

Hello,this fault code indicates a problem with the process control system.The printhead temperature dropped below the head cleaning needed threshold and that's why stops warming up.The first you need to do is to verify the temperature of the room that the printer is,if its too cold,near from an open window...If was too cold and not in the room temperature then move the printer and your are done.If this doesn't solve your problem run the Monitor Heaters tests with all heaters ON.Are the heaters operating correctly?If yes replace the Electronics Module.If no you have to inspect the harness to the failed heater.Is the harness damaged?If yes you must replace the harness.If no replace the problem component.
Good luck:)

Fuser Error. Low Temperature

there is a small thermometer that contacts/sits very close to the metal heat roller on your fuser, chances are when removing the jam its been bent away from the roller, have a look and try and see if you can see it, not knowing this exact printer im not sure the exact position but it is usually in the middle of the roller coming from the top of the fuser housing, another thing to check is if your fuser is actually warming up atall, if you cant feel any heat then the fuser lamp that heats it up has gone bad

Tonner is not getting fused.

You most likely have a bad main board in the machine. It is warming up properly , but once warm it is not pulsing the heat rod to maintain temperature. If you just walk away for a while, does the machine finally produce a fault code?
The problem is in the circuit that maintains the heating elements. Once it gets so cool,it should fault out.
You could have software corruption and its mainting to low a temperature. Let me know if after sitting for about an hour , is there a fault code that shows up.
