    That did not show anything about the cover. It's a piece that when opened you can see the heat roller and a brown roller. It still says rear jam, so I'm assuming this cover trips a sensor. There is a spring on each end of the cover and another little spring I have no idea where that sprang from! I just need a picture that shows me where these springs go -- I got the cover on, however it doesn't stay shut without the springs.

    I don't know anymore information to add.

    does anyone have a HL-4040cn or HL-4070cdw? These have the same fuse units. The cover is not a serviceable part, so the service manual does not show you how to put the cover back on. I would have to buy a whole fuse unit. All I need is a picture!

This is a tough one without looking at the machine. Chances are the 2 springs are hoplding a flap closed/down and keeping pressure of rollers on the paper feeding path. I would first say to put the fuser back in then try and print. The paper should jam in the area where the 2 springs go. Normally they are on opposite sides of the machine (left/right) and there will be 2 small (usually plastic) tabs on each side to hold the spring (if they have not been broken). You may be able to see them just by looking if you remember where you were when they popped out..

There is a paper jam...how do I unjam it


Hi dorothyhover,

Here's how you would clear paper jam from your Brother HL 1430:

1. Remove the paper cassette completely from the printer.

2.
Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

3.
Open the front cover and remove the drum unit assembly.

4. Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

Do not remove the drum unit assembly with additional force at this time if you cannot remove it easily. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper cassette.

5. Open the rear cover and pull the paper towards the back of the printer, the fuser may get dirty with toner powder and may result in toner scatter on the next printed page or pages. Print a few copies of the test page until the toner scatter on the printed pages clears.


6. Close the rear cover and install drum unit assembly, close the front cover.


Hope it helps.


Thank you for using Fixya.

I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).
