Question about IBM Infoprint 1567n Laser Printer

1 Answer

Laser printer melted cord

Plugged in recently purchased, refurbished, ibm infoprint 1567n printer, within the first minute the cord started smoking, employee yanked cord from machine, cord was breaking down and melting. There was a loud pop and huge spark as they pulled plug from machine. The cord sent with the machine is a 10 amp cord, on a twenty amp breaker, machine says it is 11 amp. IT was obviously pulling much more than 11 amps to break down a cord so quickly. I realize there are fuses and boards but the fuse may not have blown to protect unit. Question: Do you have any idea as to what malfunctioned to cause the unit to pull so much power so quickly? It there a way for me to check the fuse to see if it popped. Any other suggestions would be great.

    Just thought I would post the answer to this problem in case someone in the future has the same issue. I hired a repair man and watched him open the machine testing parts as he went. When we got to an electronic board inside, we noticed it wasn't screwed down. The previous person had tacked it in place but not gone back to actually screw down the screws. The repairman stated that could possibly pose a grounding issue and if we were lucky, that would be our problem. Long story short, we screwed the board on correctly and the machine has worked fine ever since.

There is probably a small piece of paper in the back of the printer in the fuser. Shutdown the printer and wait a few minutes as this part is hot. You may need to remove a few screws to take off the back cover and check inside the fuser.
