Sorry to say you probably have a broken gear on the fuser assembly.

Very expensive to fix.

Noisy printer


The printer or the drum/toner unit may cause the grinding or clicking noise.
  1. Power off the printer and open the front cover.
  2. Remove the drum/toner unit and close the front cover.
  3. Power the printer back on.
If the grinding or clicking noise dose not occur when the drum/toner unit is removed from the printer, then the drum/toner unit is the cause of the noise. Install a brand new drum unit and/or toner cartridge may be necessary to stop the noise.

My Brother HL 5250DN printer has started making a loud clicking sound when it tries to feed paper for printing. It then stops and the paper light starts flashing.


Clear the jammed paper as follows.
Observe Cautions signs in printer.
Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and prevents paper jams.
1. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover.
2. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper will be pulled out with the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
3. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer.
6. Open the front cover again.
7. Open the back cover.
8. Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).
9. Using both hands, gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
10. Close the back cover.
11. Pull the duplex tray completely out of the printer.
12. Pull the the jammed paper out of the printer or the duplex tray. Put the duplex tray back in the printer.
13. Push down the blue lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Clear the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.
14. Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the blue lock lever will lift automatically.
15. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer.
16. Put the paper tray firmly back in the printer.
17. Close the front cover.
18. Make sure that the Paper LED is now off and the printer is ready.
After clearing paper jam if noise persist printer may need a Repair Tech and parts replacement for broken or wore parts.

I have a hp 2430 paper jam 13.20.00 and can't find the problem


If the paper jam error first occurs just after you have replaced the toner cartridge (as it did for me), carefully look inside (with toner cartridge removed) near the rear at the fuser and there may be a black piece of paper sticking out and/or curled up against the back. I needed a flashlight to see it but still wasn't sure until I felt around and found it. It was the protective sleeve that was around the drum in the toner and when I replaced the toner I missed it. When I first powered up the printer, the sleeve got fed partially into the fuser and the tail curled up against the back, making it practically invisible. Also, with that jam, the printer made no motor or gear train noise at power on so it almost had me convinced that the motor was bad. After removing the black piece of paper, the printer initialized normally.

Copier making loud noise


Remove the drum/toner unit and close the top,...does it still make the noise? If so, there is a paper jam in the fuser section (left side)
I also have a Canon PC900 series copier....mine does not have the automatic document feeder, however the machine is the same....If the noise persists, you will probably need to replace the Fixing (fuser) Unit drive gears (worst case senerio) perhaps you can locate the jam in the fuser and "carefully" remove without damaging the Fixing Belt....good luck

Sharp AL1642 CS Copier Grinding noise and Paper Jams


Loud clacking sound, jamming in fuser ? sounds like the gear that turns the fuser are bad and not meshing together,
accordion jam is the fingers or claws that ride on the fuser roller are probably worn out ( these can be replaced usually 3-5 ).

You can buy the parts and replace them yourself if a handy person, not that difficult.

Paper jam went try to sent a fax


Step1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Step
2
Turn off the printer. 
Step
3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Step
4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
Step
5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
Step
6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
Step
7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Step
8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
Step
9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
