Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

Concern about Power Consumption

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?

Re: Concern about Power Consumption

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

Re: Concern about Power Consumption

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.

What is the resting power consumption for this unit

Hello Lon,
Your copier in standby uses 48 watts. It has a maximum power consumption of 1350 watts assuming the ducument feeder is running, the finisher/stapler is running and the ouput is 2 sided. This will chill to a continuous output once the device has stabilized of 720 watts.I am reading this from the service manual. Canon of course uses this as a "referrence". I hope this helps, as it is as accurate as the documentation the government requires. If I have helped you PLEASE let "FIXYA" know as they expect me to be helpful. I, just like to help people. Take care. SPINAL
