I have had this issue before when the laminating sheets were put in incorrectly (open side inserted as opposed to closed side inserted). Unfortunately, the manufacturer said that the machine is not repairable, and I had to replace it.

Paper shredder doesn't move due to too much adhesive paper - how to fix it

Before trying anything I suggest, make sure your shredder isn't plugged in.
You will need to remove the adhesive from the rollers. You will need to use a glue solvent on the shredder rollers,something like Goo Be Gone. Personally, I still use Ronsonol Lighter Fluid In the image below I've outlined the supplies you'll need to, hopefully, clear your jam.

25346531-f3timxio4jyou4u0bydnlgfi-2-0.jpg Without disassembling your shredder, the best way to clear your jam is to use Rosonol Lighter Fluid (3), tweezers (4), and dental picks (5).
  1. Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area. Separate the shredder from its shredded paper collection tub.
  2. Turn the shredder head upside down so that the paper output is facing up.
  3. Pour Rosonol lighter fluid on both sides of the rollers near where they come together.
  4. Use dental picks and tweezers to dislodge stuck paper pieces
  5. Turn Shredder head over and repeat steps 3 and 4
  6. Move power switch to the "Off" position
  7. Plug power cable back in
  8. Move power switch to "Rev" (reverse) position, if still stuck move power switch to the "Fwd" position, repeat twice
  9. Repeat steps 1 - 8 until the rollers move freely
Once the rollers are moving smoothly you need to oil the rollers.

Canon Pixma MP160 not feeding paper properly. there is no jam or anything blocking. It grasps the paper but wont feed it thru and the computer will tell me its out of paper

It sounds like a dirty or broken paper sensor. Look in and around the paper tray feed mechanism to see if there is a lever or something that touches the paper (possibly very small). That "lever" has another end to it that usually goes between two optical sensor elements, and acts as an interrupter between the sensor pair when the paper is either empty or full (I'm not familiar with your particular printer). The sensor pair may be part of a plastic assembly, and the only indication that they are sensors are that the inside surfaces are usually shiny (when clean), and that you have a lever or something that goes in between them. You may also see some wires going to either of the sensor pair or plastic assembly that they are part of.

If that little lever is broken, your boned. Otherwise the optical sensors may just be dirty. If so, you may be able to clean them with a dry Q-tip (be careful NOT to break that lever). If you can't reach in there with a Q-tip, you might try a can of compressed air pointed at them to clean them off (an air compressor will work, but make sure it's not spitting out any water with that air first).

If you think your having problems because the rubber rollers on the paper pickup are really dirty (can't grab & feed the paper properly), here is a trick I developed years ago. You'll need a couple of pieces of heavy card stock (110+LB), and a can a Duro Brand adhesive spray (DO NOT use 3M-Super 77). You spray a VERY light coating of the adhesive onto all but the top three (3) inches of one side of the card stock (use a piece of cardboard as a mask). Let the adhesive set for 10 minutes (should stick and peel off like a post-it note). Feed the card stock into the printer (3 inch non adhesive end first) by hand while pressing the page feed button on the printer. The adhesive will grab any/all dust/**** inside the printer and rollers, making them look/act like new. You may need to do it more than once (use a new adhesive sheet each time). Run 3 or 4 "UN-COATED" sheets of that same card stock through to clean up any excess adhesive that may still be on rollers. CAUTION: If you insert the card stock in backwards (adhesive coated end first), or you don't leave at least 3 inches on the leading edge un-coated, or if you run regular (thin) paper through it without getting all the excess adhesive off the rollers first, the paper WILL wrap around the rollers and you WILL have a mess on your hands.

Let me know if any of this helped.

Paper jam on a dell 924 cannot see the envelope that is stuck

This seems to be fault in the transport of the paper in the rollers. So if you have used any adhesive sticker /or even envelope with adhesive printing, it is possible that some glue has got clogged into the rollers. If not there can be some jammed paper in the rollers or the mechanism.
So start this work only if you are mechanically able with the right tools.
Remove the covers to get access to the mechanism . Remove the motor drive assembly , the fitting of the motor to the mechanism. Once this is removed the rollers can be turned manually so that you will be able to feed a paper to see the progress of the movement while studying if there is any obstruction or damage to the paper.
There is a in-detect sensor, usually an opto-coupler , make sure this is not clogged or dirty as this IR detection feeds the signal to the processor for starting the motor drive feed.
Reassemble but make sure the rollers are aligned to be in equal gap to feed the paper without a side pull. Now you must print and see if the fault has changed. If not repeat the above work to confirm the area of obstruction.

While copying labels a label became stuck to the drum do I clean it?

If it is on the photo receptor drum (mirror finish), it will likely not survive cleaning and will have to be replaced. If you mean any roller in the paper path, you can use a solvent such as 'Oops' to remove the sticker and then thoroughly remove any remaining adhesive otherwise you may have a new jam to deal with.

Help! Sticky label stuck on roller

Carefully peel away the label from the roller.
Then, CAREFULLY apply an adhesive remover to the area on the roller where the glue is. I highly recommend a product called GOO GONE. It works great and smells like citrus.
Apply the Goo Gone with a Q-tip, being careful not to let the solution get on any other part in the printer.

Tiny white line through entire top length of card image??

Cleaning the printhead
This procedure is performed if you notice a streak on the card where ink was not transferred.
Note: Never use a sharp tool or a metal object of any kind to clean the printhead!

Before approaching the printer to clean it, replace a ribbon or clear a card malfunction, it is recommended that you extinguish all smoking materials, remove jewelry from fingers and cleanse your hands from oils and debris. This reduces the risk of accidentally damaging the glass substrate of the printhead and introducing contaminates to the media and rollers. Please observe all established Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) procedures any time the covers of the printer are opened or removed.

Fargo Electronics offers a Cleaning Kit (P/N 081518) which includes alcohol cleaning pens and instructions for cleaning the glass substrate of the printhead. If this kit is not available, please use the following alternative procedure:
  1. Open the top cover imaging assembly of the printer.
  2. If you observe dust and/or other particles laying on the top surface of the ribbon, manually roll it up into the take-up roll. Occasionally, dust may settle on the top surface of the ribbon and cause print quality problems.
  3. To remove residue from the glass substrate of the printhead, use isopropyl alcohol (99% pure) and a clean, soft, lint-free cloth. To clean the printhead, wipe the glass substrate from front to back several times with the alcohol-moistened cloth. Allow the printhead to dry completely before using the printer.
Cleaning the card feed rollers
Fargo Electronics offers a Cleaning Kit (P/N 081518) for purchase which includes adhesive-backed cleaning cards. These cards can be used for cleaning the gray or black card feed rollers during each ribbon change or when the rollers are noticeably dirty. Use the following procedure when using these cards:
  1. Remove the ribbon and cards from the printer. The cleaning roller assembly can remain within the printer during the cleaning process.
  2. Remove the adhesive backing from the cleaning card.
  3. With the top cover assembly closed and with the exposed adhesive-side of the cleaning card facing up, insert the cleaning card into the card hopper so that the longest nonadhesive end of the cleaning card enters the printer first. Be sure to insert the cleaning card beneath the all-metal card input roller and above the card input tray. This procedure will work best if the leading edge of the cleaning card is fed slightly past the orange-colored card separator.
  4. Once the cleaning card is properly inserted into the card hopper, run a self test. As the self-test sequence begins, you may need to push the cleaning card into the printer to help it initially feed.
  5. Allow the cleaning card to feed through the printer until the on-line LED flashes. Press the on-line button to completely eject the cleaning card. Repeat this cleaning procedure if necessary.
  6. If the cleaning kit is not available, adhesive tape is also an effective method for removing lint and debris from the rollers. Be sure to use either clear tape or masking tape. Do not use duct or strapping tape. These adhesives leave a gummy residue behind.
  7. Open the lid, and use the on-line and on/cancel buttons to rotate the main feed rollers, while applying the tape. Alternatively, 99% pure alcohol wipes can be used, but not for every cleaning, as this could eventually deplete the tack from the roller's rubber. Do not use alcohol to clean the cleaning roller assembly.
Maintaining the cleaning roller assembly
The cleaning roller assembly removes dust particles from card blanks as they are fed into the printer. Cleaning this assembly will help prevent contaminated cards from passing beneath the printhead, extending the printhead's life and allowing for higher-quality output. Refer to the following steps to clean the cleaning roller assembly.
  1. Remove jewelry from fingers and wash hands before servicing the printer to avoid damaging the printhead
  2. Open the top cover of the printer's imaging station.
  3. Remove the ribbon from the printer.
  4. Located to the left of the card hopper, the cleaning roller assembly has been identified with a label. The cleaning roller assembly is held in place by two magnets. Simply grasp the front edge of the assembly bracket with your thumb and finger and lift it out of the printer.
  5. To clean the assembly, use an adhesive cleaning card and feed it back and forth between the rollers to remove the dust particles and lint. DO NOT use alcohol to maintain the cleaning rollers, as this will deplete the tack from the rubber.
Cleaning the platen rollers
  1. Remove both the print and overlaminate ribbons.
  2. Locate the two platen rollers.
  3. Use a piece of either clear adhesive tape or masking tape and apply the sticky side of the tape to the platen rollers to lift and remove debris.
  4. Use the on-line and on/cancel buttons to rotate the rollers.
  5. After the rollers are clean, replace the ribbon and close the top covers.

Cleaning the exterior of the printer
The printer has a durable casing that should retain its luster and appearance for many years. Use mild glass cleaner or water and a lint-free cloth to remove dust and lint from the exterior of the printer. When cleaning, always spray the cloth first and then wipe down the printer instead of spraying the printer directly. It is important to regularly clean the interior and exterior of the printer at least once a week, and more often when the duty cycle is high.

Cleaning the interior of the printer
As you use your printer, dust and other foreign particles will accumulate inside the printer's case. These particles are attracted to the underside of the ribbon by static produced during printing and can cause voids on the printed image. Periodically, use the following procedure to remove dust and other foreign particles:
  1. Open the top covers of the printer.
  2. Remove both the print and overlaminate ribbons.
  3. If you have access to a very small vacuum cleaner (most computer stores sell devices just for this purpose), use it to vacuum out all visible areas inside the printer. If you don't have such a device, use a soft, lint-free cloth slightly moistened with isopropyl alcohol to wipe out all visible areas inside the printer's cabinet. Be extremely careful not to let any alcohol drip inside the printer's case.
  4. As an alternative method, use a can of compressed air and in a sweeping motion blow air into the printer from the card hopper working towards the card exit side of the printer. Use a lint-free cloth or tape to remove any particles of debris remaining on the surface of the interior.
  5. Once the cleaned areas are completely dry and free of foreign debris, re-install the ribbons, close the top covers, and install cards.
This section deals with the printer's internal and external maintenance in regards to the unit's cleaning and general upkeep. It is a good idea to clean the printer on a regular basis to ensure that the printer consistently produces high-quality output. Be sure to disconnect the printer's power cord whenever performing any type of maintenance procedure unless otherwise directed. Cleaning of the printhead, card feed rollers, platen rollers and cleaning roller assembly should be done every 250 cards to maintain output quality.

UNPLUG DRYER, 220v is not fun
You get in the back of the dryer, from the front.
maytag dryers have two screws in the curve of the bottom of the front panel. (Note:screws may be torx-secure screws, cut a slot in them and use a flat screwdriver or pick up a torx-secure #20 bit at a tool shop, star shape with a pin in it)
remove the screws and the front panel can be swung up from the bottom and unhooked.
unplug door switch wires
reach under drum, for belt tensioner, pull belt off tensioner. and motor pulley
lift drum up and slide out forward
under drum are 2 rubber tired rollers, check for free motion, replace both if either is seized
the drum has felt bushes on it
examine felts for wear, replace if worn.
ensure all felt and adhesive is scraped from drum before fitting new felts, if there is any left, it bumps/thumps and knocks every rotation (best adhesive is Hi temperature red silicone)
use 2-4 pairs locking pliers(visegrips) to install felt
  • put adhesive on drum edge
  • clip felt in place at one point with visegrip
  • pull felt around drum, clipping in place as you go
  • let sit in clamps till adhsive sets
reassemble drum in reverse order
38d7d07.jpg while you got it apart is a good time to clear any lint from exhaust vents and squirrel cage fan,
felts last cost $30/pair rollers $9/pair
takes 45 minutes now to change felts, I do rollers while the adhesive sets, had a lot of practice, replace the belt, cost is minimal, it has been *****ed pulling the drum against the worn felts or rollers, and will break soon, dont want to open up again

Clothes get caught between drum at front of dryer

the drum has either worn out its felt(front), a fabric bearing, or the roller(rear) bearings, or both, and dropped enough to make a gap. new rollers are3 about $15 /pair, felts between $13 & $90 depending on model.
Generic replacement is simple, and really while you got it apart, do both, the strain of twisting off axis will make the remaining good end fail shortly
The generic steps may not be correct for the actual dryer model.
