Makes a grinding noise near the drum. Copier works, but makes a "gear-grinding" noise near the drum area. Can't tell what's doing it.

Un load the drum unit, check the drum/s gear, is it wear off, if so change it along with the drum's drive gear at machine base, check also the gears of developing unit

Lubricated the bushings on the black foam roller on the inside of the right hand door. Toner leakage is unrelated unless the drum unit gears are causing the noise, in which case, it must be replaced.

Not really it is best to get an engineer certified on the model of the copier you have to look at it a good engineer will no pretty much when thew see the type of screws and your streaking issue were they come from i would guess either the fuser area or drum area again this is a guess in the dark

could be a few things... take out the drum and make sure the toner is put back in. then keep the right side door open and push the silver metal flap down near the back of the door opening (its the interlock that tells the machine the right side door is closed) and see if the noise occurs. if it does then you no its not the drum. so u can reinstall it. try to pin point the source of the sound with the right side door open. could be one of the many gears in back or the fuser (which is above the green colored drum) 4 screws and one wire harness takes off the fuser and u can physically inspect to see if the gears are missing any teeth or the bushings are broken. if all looks well then reinstall turn machine around and take off the back cover (6 screws) wiggle it off and turn the machine on and look closely at all the gears on the left(looking at the back) top side. when it starts it warm up process check to see if any gears are making the sound or cracked. if those gears are shot u mught need a new main drive assembly which is really difficult and time consuming to repair.

Gear grinding noise when copier operating


wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a toner cartridge. Have you had to replace it sine the noise began? Is it remanufactured / compatible? I won't be surprised if the grinding stops once it's replaced. Just my 2 cents.

"machine gun clicking" sound - fuser drive/motor gear area


Sometimes the clicking noise can come for the developer cartridge or the drum. you can carefully take them out and see if they turn freely.

Grinding noise


Is the noise comming from the right side of the copier? If so you need the upper fusing roller drive gear. It will break sooner then later.

Loud grinding noise Toshiba 1550


It is one of three problems,
1- the developper is starting to go bad, unfortunately with toshiba it is a common problem the seals go bad in the unit the gears are very hard to turn giving a loud grinding noise, although you can rebuild the unit by changing the seals, it's VERY messy and they don't always work ( after spending all that time cleaning and changing the seals and gears and it didn't work, I just started to change the DV unit.) Test by taking out and turning the gear by hand, if you need a plier to turn it, it's bad.
2-the toner itself is a problem, take out the toner and look at wherre it sits there is a gear that turns the toner to feed it in the machine, if it's dirty and has toner it will make noise, test by taking out toner and close machine, does it make the noise without it?
3- cleaning section where the drum is, this is what turns to feed excess toner into the small pastic container, aggravating but not a mechanical problem. And also check the fuser ( where it gets hot)

I think I've covered everything for that machine.

Good luck
