Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2530 DL Laser Printer
For the last to mornings when we get in the printer gives an Fatal error code 14h.
We have hard rebooted the printer several time and then it works. We have pulled the toner out and put it in front of a heater for a while and then put it in and it has worked.
What is the issue and how can it be resolved permanently?

Normally smoke would be caused by label residue being left on the fuser rollers, I am assuming your use of the word label is correct and not a transparency (which is a common jamming source in laser printers) especially when someone mistakenly puts a inkjet transparency through a laser printer or mistakenly puts a clear plastic divider sheet through.
If you are sure all of the original label has come out and there is was no residue left directly on the fuser rollers, and the fact you now have smoke and an error code (which I do not have access to find service codes for Minolta), I suspect the fuser assembly is overheating now which is causing the error message (after probably 10 seconds after switch on from cold). This could mean the temperature sensor monitoring the fuser temp is either not touching the fuser due to label fragment lifting sensor off fuser roller surface or sensor is bent or damaged due to label revolving aorund or subsequent removal efforts.
Take a closer look and see if you can find a stray fragment stuck to a thermocouple sensor wiping against the fuser roller. Failing this then you probably need to send into service and ask for a quote to repair. Be aware that the fuser may have become scratched or otherwise damaged depending upon your label removal techniques....over zealous use of letter openers, nail files and small screwdrivers have destroyed many a good fuser assembly.

When fatal error codes are displayed call tech support at Konica Minolta:
An error has been detected with the item indicated "XX" in the service message.
Reboot the printer. This often clears the service message, and printer operation can resume.
If the problem persists, contact Technical Support

Check your toner cartridges, one of them is seized up. Remove all cartridges and turn the gear on the right side backwards ( counterclockwise) about 10 times and see if it turns smoothly. I don't know why but 90% of the time its the cyan that gets stuck.
