No matter how you purchased, Brother machines have a one year warranty. You will need a receipt to show purchase date or they can check the serial number for manufacture date. 1-800-276-7746 is the Brother cust. support line where they can tell you where the nearest service center is.

Whenever i use my brothe 2170w laser printer the house lights on the same circuit dim. This happens no matter which outlet I use, in my house or office

A laser printer consumes quite a lot of energy when printing, the fuser must be quickly heated up to a proper temperature. Plug some other power-hungry device in this socket, like an electric kettle or heater, and see if it's causing the same effect. If it is, then the building wiring is poor and you can't do anything about it.

I have a brother HL-2170W and I keep on getting the message to clean the wire. I have done what they said to do and it still coming up and will not print. I also brought a new drum and put it in and that...

The drum should have fixed that, sometimes I use canned air to blow out the area under the blue tab, and it helps. Make sure you wipe the contacts where the drum contacts the sides inside, beyond that you may need a new engine board.

Power overload with Brother HL-2170W

It might just have been that outlet in the surge protector is bad when you tried to use it, it might have shorted the system out
