Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
I recently was given the CLP-300. I noticed the power consumption is listed at 350W. I have read a few posts over the net that the power supply may be an issue. I noticed quite a load in regular 120 outlets. First, do I need a 220? or what is best way to handle the load? Or, do I have a lemon?
All laser printers draw a large amount of watts to heat the fuser, it is a quatz halogen lamp that heats up metal rollers to melt the toner into the paper.
All fusers in laser printers give of a smell (burning metalic electical ozonee smell) mostly when new, Fusers run at high temps and parts burn in a little.
No issue with power supply any more than any laser printer ie none

As with any device that heats up you will see a draw on a 115 volt outlet depending on what else is on the same BREAKER, not outlet. 350 watts is only about 3A compared to some hairdryers that exceed 15A. A 220 unit would help but not much. I suggest making sure you "put it to sleep" as soon as possible after printing unless you are just constantly printing and can't wait for the warm ups.
