The paper feed system is worn (rollers, and separation pad). What is happening, is extra sheets are being fed into the machine primarily because the separation unit is not doing it's job properly. So rather than just one page at a time being fed, it is allowing an extra sheet to "creep" in intermittently, causing the jam. And the indicator you are seeing is the "jam" indicator.
You can also try using a rubber eraser as the rollers are going. Just take a pencil and lightly rub along the length of the rollers as they are feeding. This should remove the film that clogs the rollers surface.
If your priter is showing a 241 paper jam and the paper stops in the paper tray or lower front, then you can replace the pick rollers to fix this problem. If the paper stops in the middle, then check to make sure the sensor flag in the middle left of the printer is clean and in place. If the jam is in the back of the printer then check the fuser rollers to make sure that they are rolling when the printer starts to print, check the exit sensors on the fuser, there are usually two flags, one on each side of the fuser. If there is no paper stuck in the printer, then make sure that all sensor flags are up and not stuck halfway down. Or check for dust in the sensors.
