Depends on where inside the machine the label got stuck. There's covers on the back, front (which also lets you remove the toner/drum unit for more access) and also the paper tray.
If you're unable to reach the label removing these parts/opening the covers, the machine would require to be screwed apart to reach it. There is no levels to release pressure on drum or similar to reach further within, unfortunately.

How to print adhisive labels using mfc 7340


Buy laser-specific adhesive labels. Those that say "Laser printer compatible". If you have an inkjet printer, print the labels with it, with the laser is more risky because of the temperature the paper needs to get in the printing process. If one label gets out of the support paper or the paper gets sticky inside the printer, it will cause a real mess.
Try inkjet first, or buy high-quality labels and print one full sheet at a time, not label by label.

You need to calibrate your printer to the label stock and clean the photo eye that the label passes over right before it goes into the printhead. Make sure the eye picks up the light. They MUST be in perfect alignment, normally about 1/2" from the side of the label. You should also make sure you have the correct label size AND orientation selected in the program you are running. Running a 6" X 4" label with the program set for a 4" X 6" label will stop the works.

Sticker got stuck on red bar inside


You need to remove the fuser to get access, If you try to dig it out with anything you risk tearing up that red roller, it's pretty soft. You could replace the fuser, around $75.00, but if you take it out you can probably remove the sticker.
