There is a small white gear that drives the fuser module. It wears out at 30 to 40 thousand pages.
If the sound is a jumping to gringing noise that would be the problem.
That gear jumping will cause the machine to say out of paper,, jam,, give all kinds of problems from things bouncing around.
some machines will want all covers to be opened, then closed, for good reset. if you are having jams in the adf, then open all adf covers, and lift the adf upward, if it allows. also, try turning unit off, then back on. some jams only clear that way.
It is possible that there may still be a small piece of paper blocking or lodged in the exit sensor area. It is also possible that when removing the jammed paper that the sensor arm became dislodged and thus creating a false jam code.
I had almost the same problem but the problem that I had was that after running 5 or more copies it would show a jam with no paper anywhere. And the only way to clear the jam was shutting the machine off and turing it back on.
What I found out was that the gate (flag) on the fuser unit was heating up and the gate (flag) was sticking a bit. (Plastic that close to the fuser isn't the best design)
Anyway, the only way to resolve this problem was replacing the fuser that had a new gate (flag) already installed.
You can replace the flag by itself also.
The way to see if your machine has the same problem, is if you get a jam and you open the right side door, push the black gate and see if it moves a little bit. If it was stuck then your machine is doing the same as mine was.
Hope this helps.
Check that the paper feed roller is clean as if the roller slips it causes a late paper pickup jam but nothing will be in there also maybe a small torn piece in the machine some where. and check the fuser make sure that is it not stuck in there if no to all these then is will need a control board.
