Re: Dell 1700N Laser has burning plastic smell

Depending on the age, there was a safety recall on this printer a couple of years ago for an overheating and possibility of fire. If I remember correctly, it was printers made in 2004 or 2005. Should be something on the web (consumer product safety).

I have a Dell 1700n that prints just fine, except that the toner is not fused to the paper. If I blow on the paper the toner all blows off. How do i determine which part is failed.

The fuser is bad, check inside for paper wrapped around the fuser roller because normally the printer will shut down if there's not enough heat at the fuser or the lamp is burned out. The fuser is just before the paper exit and has heat warning labels attached.

Dell 1700N

We had a printer with the same problem, and turning the pickup wheels inside out (on the back of the paper tray) solved the problem.

Hope this helps.

Some questions first: -Where in the paper path is it jamming? -Is it always in the same spot or does it vary? -Roughly how many pages have you printed with this printer? -Did anything lead up to this or has it progressively gotten worse?
