SF-3100 Paper feed problem

Hi folks,
I've had this fax for some years now and have been very pleased with it, however lately it grabs several sheets when trying to send a multi page document. Have to feed it manually a page at a time. Very difficult. Is this a cleaning problem or does it require new rollers or something?

Many thanks

You need to clean the friction pad. If you open the part where you put your sheets in to send faxes you will see a white pad behind the cover. You need to clean it, if it still feeds more than one page the pad is probably worn.

Fax chews paper when receiving a fax, sends perfectly

Where it is receiving the fax and sending it are 2 different locations.

There must be a piece of paper in the paper path causing it to get "concertinaed ?????

when sending it is NOT going trough the same path.

Here is the manual, there may be some help in the troubleshooting section

good luck

Samsung SF-3100T parts

Hi there the thing is if you were to glue this back into place the likely hood is that the machine will not hold as there is a quite a bit of pressure within that area. The best option is to obtain a new machine as trying to fix will out way the cost of the machine.

Thanks J
