You said that if the paper jams at the back it's due to shot gears on the fuser. You didn't say if there's a fix. I can live with taking the paper out the back of the printer, but I'd rather have it work correctly.
If the paper is jamming at the back of the unit, and looks like an accordian after removal, it's more than likely only the paper sensor on the fuser. i dont recall the part number, but it can be had from online suppliers for under $40.

Analyse where paper jamming is happening? remove right left back & top covers..press door switch, shoot print command. Remove cartridge after paper jam, check upto where paper travel? 1. If paper jams with curl foldings in cartridge bank area..before entering the fuser assmbly.. # Teflon sleeve not rotation properly due to this paper not passing through it result curl foldings..Replace teflon sleeve.. 2. If paper passed fuser assmebly little bit(near about 2-3 inches. #Problem with paper out sensor/flag. clean sensor, check sensor flag movement & spring. 3. Check registration paper sensor located back side. # while passing the paper, sensor flag has to act & once paper out it has to reach home,other wise paper jam error will appear.. check flag spring.
Most likely you will have to replace the fuser. Also I would inspect all pick up rollers and make sure they are all textured with no smooth or bald spots. Bad rollers are the #1 cause of jams. Also if you hear any clicking you may have a bad gear.
Removed the fuser unit and also removed the left hand side panel to access the gearing mechanism.
Manually rotated the gearing a number of times thru 360 degress. This appears to have cleared whatever was causing the printer to detect a paper jam although there was no obvious sign of bits of paper or even dust build up.
First thing to try is to flip the paper over in the input tray. There are 2 sides to paper. One side may curl a bit too much due to heat of the fuser and get caught near the output rollers.
Unless the Output Assembly was assembled wrong, it is impossible for the rollers to turn the wrong way. The gear in the fuser drives the output assembly. The top rollers are rolling out.
If the rollers are not rolling, then one of the gears must be broken or missing. The output rolllers might need cleaning.
Next check the fuser unit. Disconnect power to printer and turn printer round. Remove the back output tray and the two small covers (left and right). Undo the 2 screws that hold the fuser in place. Pull the fuser out. Check the gears on side of the fuser. A broken gear in the fuser could cause this problem.
I've experienced this in the past and found a paper jam in the back feed roller and had to take the unit apart to retreave document. Try doing this (only if no longer under warranty) there are a few screws in the front and it should be able to come off easily.
We have many of the 1700N printers and have found that the 2 paper pickup tires must be in good condition to avoid frequent jams. I would highly suggest replacing the 2 paper pickup tires if this printer has a lot of copies on it.You can slip the tires off of the plastic roller and see if they are shiny. If so, replace them.
2 things to check. First when you lift and close the toner door, do the exit rollers on top of the printer turn for a couple of seconds. You just put your fingers where the paper comes out and see if they turn. If they do not then you may have a fuser or coupling gear isse. The other thing is to try and feed the paper from the manual feeder and see if it goes thur. If it does you have a sensor issue on the paper input unit and a sensor board will have to be replaced.
If the exit rollers are not turning and the paper does not make it into the fuser, I would suspect one of the gears on the fuser has failed. Remove the fuser and inspect the gears and I am sure you will find the problem.
try "rotating the pick up tires". (dell tech's phrase, not mine). pull the paper tray clear out of cabinet and look up inside the bottom of the printer. you will see a t shaped assembly with 2 large rubber tires (rollers). pull the assembly down (spring loaded) and peel the tires off the plastic mounting rollers. turn the tires inside out and replace them.
