If it is new then you should return it for the guaranty if not...
It is a common failure in printers, mostly laser printers which are used more frequently! there is a part underneath the paper feeder roler/drum, which is like sand paper. It stops excessive paper to be dragged in by the feeder, using friction! By the time, this part gets worn out resulting in more papers to be fed by the feeder! you could get the part from a replacement-parts dealer of your printer brand or try to fix it yourself ;)
I myself tried to make it less slippery by scratching it with a nife and/or a screw driver, with temporary positive result. I think you could glue a bit of sandpaper on it which should hold a bit longer!

Paper jams constantly. despite cleaning. 7 in 8 attemtps jam.

I can garantee you that the main problem is the printer paper pick up roller. You have to remove it to clean it well and with proper platen clean spray. Also you can reverse some part of rubber, so you can get new fresh rubber surface.
So...please clean the roller or make exchange with new one

Paper feeder keeeps jamming

The paper feed roller probally needs to be cleaned or replaced. It is located in the back just above the paper tray. Try cleaning it with a damp cloth to see if that makes it work better.

Non-working printer; no paper pickup

The solution shown for the Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One works also for the Samsung CLX-2160N.
The associated picture and methodology of "pre-stretching" the solenoid spring is virtually identical for both printers.
Worked for me on the CLX-2160N

Constant paper jams (paper does not feed through)

The problem is probally the feed rollers are either dirty or worn. If they are dirty they can be cleaned with a damp soft cloth or a foam brush. Hope this helps.

CLX 2160 - paperjam

There is probably a jam in the paper feed area. Pull the paper tray out and stick your hand in to find and remove any paper stuck there. Then reinstall the paper tray and open and close the front door of the printer. The jam should be cleared.

If it is still showing paper jam, pull the tray out again and look to make sure you didn't miss any paper, then check the other areas of the printer (starting with the exit area) for paper.

Constant Paper jams on CLX-3175FN

The fact that there appears to be no actual jam tells me that it is not picking up paper out of the tray. Try some alcohol on the pickup rollers, rubbing well. If that helps, replace these rollers.
