Question about Sharp AL 1215 Black and White Copier
Every time I turn my copier on, it makes a loud chainsaw-like sound. It seems like a gear got stuck and it feeds paper only halfway and crumples away before it reaches the drum area.
Could be gears or also a piece of paper in fuser causing a jam that is stopping the fuser from turning also check the "fingers" are not stuck up or are off their springs
fingers help separate paper from the roller but can cause jamming if not in correct position

Paper pickup clutch spring slipping, cause by toner leaking from toner unit. strip and clean clutch spring or replace.

Check the crumpled paper. If it has an image, it has reached the drum and is crumpling at the fuser unit (part that gets hot). If that is the case the fuser gear and drive gear need to be replaced.
