Symptom: Grinding sound.

System makes a loud grinding or flapping sound when warming up and making copies.  No sound when on and at rest after warmup.  Also sound stops when right side door is opened.  Still makes perfect copies.

This could be either your drum cartridge or your fuser unit.

Take your toner cartridge out and look right up front where the drum cartridge empties 'waste toner' back into the toner cartridge.  There's a little flap there that slides back and forth on the very end.  Slide it back and see if toner is packed in there solid.  If so, vacuum it out.  Then you'll have to replace that drum.  Sometimes you can salvage them by cleaning out all the waste toner, but usually the gear in back has already stripped and it's no use.

If everything looks fine with the cartridges, it's probably the fuser.  You can buy a new one here:

The fuser is that part of the machine that gets real hot.  If you open the right side door, it'll be right close to the top.  There are usually 4 screws holding it in place.  If you take those screws out, you should be able to hold it away from the machine while it's running (you'll have to cheat the door).  If the grinding stops as soon as you pull the fuser away, that's probably your problem.

Let me know if any of this sounds too technical.  eric AT essonline.us

Random Short Grinding/Buzzing Noise from my Notebook gets amplified through PA system!!! Don't know where it is coming from or when it will happen next!!!


try and blow out the laptop with compressed air as it could be your fan making noise, make sure to leave the laptop on a flat surface, and don't press too ******* the palm rest. i say this because i have a dell 1545 and the hard drive is located on the left side under the palm rest and if i apply too much pressure i hear a slight grinding noise. let me know if this helps and please tell me if you're near the machine when it does this grinding sound.

Everything works but "heating". Makes grinding


The loud buzzing sound with no heating, is symptom that the magnetron has failed in your oven. Magnetron replacement cost are almost as much as new oven, so it does not make financial sense to repair. Sorry.

Compressor makes a noise that sounds like a grinding sound.


Hi,

Either its oil has found its way to the system and is causing the grinding sound. A quick remedy would be letting it rest for at least a day, if this doesn't work you need to purge your system.

I hope this helps.

Longer warm up time accompanied by a loud grinding noise


There are few gears inside the copier that probably need to be replaced causing the grind and the copy quality to happen. It wasn't looked at by the engineer at the time because it happened after they left. They should come back in to fix it.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
