Re: not feeding paper all the way

Never use Alcohol on rubber feed rollers. I am not sure what the fix is for your problem, but if you use alcohol on your feed rollers you will have another problem. Alcohol removes moisture from rubber, over time the rollers harden and will need to be replaced. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL ON RUBBER.

YES THEY CAN BE CLEANED first before replacing anything
Use microfiber towel moistened with rubbing alcohol to clean feed rollers

Will not pick up paper when receiving Fax or asked to Copy . Transmits fine and receives into memory but cannot get a paper copy of received transmissions.

Remove cover for paper, and you will be able to see the two small rollers on plastic axis. Clean them. ( each side, but when you turn them manually, put it back in first position )

My fax machine only feeds paper to one side when I'm sending a fax. I cleaned the roller with WD-40 but it still only rolls to the right.

Most of the times there is a dockument stop arm thac6cfff.jpgat broke that cause the paper just to feed one side.What you can do is to remove this arm.I have pointed with a sckrew driver this part.After removing this document stop you will be able to use the fax while ordering a new part.
