Paper goes cricked due to the following reasons

An overheated fuser is one of the most common causes of a paper jam. When large loads of print jobs are pushed through a printer, the fuser slowly starts to warm up. As the fuser warms up, the heat causes the corners of the printer paper to bend. The hotter the fuser gets, the more the paper bends. Eventually the paper bends so much that it causes the paper to get stuck in the fuser, causing a jam.
Certain paper types are only made to be used in specific printer types. One of the reasons for this is paper thickness. This is especially the case with bonded paper. If the paper is thicker than the printer is able to handle, jams will occur either from not being able to enter or exit the printer, or by grabbing more than one page of paper at the same time.
Torn paper from passed paper jams may also cause future jams. When removing a paper jam it is important to ensure that every part of the caught paper is removed or else a single remaining piece could block the paper trail and cause a jam.
If you cannot find any other reason for a continuous printer jam, the problem may be the roller. A cracked roller can easily grab a piece of paper and get it caught. A glazed-over or dirty roller can also cause the paper to get caught on the roller and jam the printer. If the roller is cracked or glazed, you may need to call your print technician or replace the roller.

1.Carefully remove all of the paper that you see that is jammed anywhere first. Also open all of the paper drawers and remove any jams. Make sure there is no bent paper left in the tray

2.Open the doors on the copy machine and there is usually a series of knobs and handles that you can manually turn. These knobs ar4e usually bigger and a bright color. Follow the direction arrows and turn all the knobs, one at a time to manually move any paper that is stuck. If you hear paper thrashing around stop turning and see if there is anyway to remove it without tearing it further. A lot of the components can be pulled away from the copy machine so that paper can be taken out. Be careful though because the internal parts of a copy machine can reach 400 degrees or more and you can easily get burned. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this part of the step than don’t do it. Usually you will be able to turn the knobs to get the paper jam to feed through without having to open the components though.

3.Check for small pieces of paper. Sometimes tiny bits of paper or even paper dust can cause the copy machines sensors to misread or even cause a paper jam. Try using a duster or even just blowing a little near the paper feeds, copy glass, and where the paper comes out.

If it attempts to feed and expecially when you hear a cricking sound. It means that the paper guide it too tighten that it holds the paper. Try to loose up the paper tray guide. Are you using a paper tray. If not, put small paper or change the correct setting of the paper size setting to auto detect if any.

The try to print again.

No problem, but don't know if the print goes face side up por down into the printer when faxing

Where you put the paper must be a little icon like a page with lines, if you see this put the paper face up. I am surprise you did not check with a fax recipient to see if they got it (Blank paper or the fax)

Paper not feeding into the printer properly

This is usually caused by the pickup rollers. When they get worn just a little they will start doing this. You can try cleaning them with alcohol, this helps sometimes.
