Check your discharge trap. Take off lower front panel under door.Just 3 screws, of course they are torx T-20 size.When the panel is removed right in front is what looks to be a plastic can on it's side with a cap that can screw off. It is a trap that comes from bottom of drum and collects stuff and traps it before getting into discharge pump, anyway mine was full off junk, screws nails small toys. It was packed, After cleaning out and resetting machine it worked again. Worth a try.

I changed the toner cartridge and now it won't print. The red round light on the control panel is lit. Now what?


If the round red light you describe is a circle of dots that indicates a developer change is due. This needs to be done by a technician but the machine should work fine without doing the developer change.

Water still in the bottom of the drum. Empty, clean filter and check pump is turning. Once pressure switch is satisfied no water is left it'll allow the door to open, assuming the door interlock is still ok.

What is your model type a FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

Are you up to troubleshooting the issue? We would need to see if the Left or Right hand lid lock is signaling the Control Board incorrectly. This could involve using a DVM to measure +12 VDC signaling from the Lid Locks to the Control Board.

''Control Lock'' won't ''unlock''


Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button to lock or unlock the control panel. The instructions should be printed directly below this button. I hope this helps you.

Control locked


Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 3 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped
