Xerox 1008: Paper Jam when no paper is stuck

Hi all, We have a Xerox 1008 Fax machine that always shows an error message about a paper jam after printing one paper. Although there ain't a paper stuck in the machine. After opening en closing the case where the Toner is located the paper jam message disappears and the machine prints another paper. And so on. I already cleaned the printer rolls with an appropriat roll-cleaning spray but that didn't solve the problem. Can somebody tell me how to solve this problem? Maybe there is a sensor somewhere that I need to clean? Many thanks in advance. Regards

It Is a sensor that you should clean or re-locate. Try searching on sides of the roll or near the place where it shows you or tell you about the paper Jam.

I have an Intellifax 2820 and there is an error message of paper jam inside... I have cleaned all paper out of machine... please help me

A jam sensor may be stuck by a paper scrap. Try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the machine IN THE DIRECTION IT IS NORMALLY FED. This may force out any stuck scraps. The jam sensors are usually located where the paper feeds and where it exits the machine. Also, make sure ALL ACCESS PANELS YOU OPENED TO CLEAR JAMS ARE CLOSED PROPERLY. Otherwise, the jam code will not clear.

Does it say clear jam immediatly or does it start to run then declare a jam?
If it starts then tells you to clear a jam and no paper is in the machine, your feed rollers are shot. Smooth like trying to drive a car on ice.
If it says that all the time, no attempt to feed then you have a sensor either dirty, knocked out of place or something stuck on a sensor.
Either in the paper path or in the scanner.
