Drum will not turn and there is no heat.


This dryer has a circuit board that controls virtually everything. If it makes a buzzing noise when you press the power button to turn on the control panel, it's probably not going to be an easy fix. When you hire a professional, you avoid buying expensive parts that you might not need, such as a control board. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you press the start button, it's possible that it could be a motor or belt problem. But again, I'd recommend a service call for this one.

Resetting the printer. After the Ink Service Module has been replaced, trigger level 1, 2a, 2b, or 3 will still be displayed when the printer is turned on. Reset the printer to remove the trigger level messages.
CAUTION: Do not reset the printer if the Ink Service Module is not replaced. The spittoon may overflow. Follow the instructions below to reset the printer.
  • Turn on the printer
  • Press and hold down the Cancel button
  • While holding down the Cancel button, press and hold down the Resume button
  • Hold the Cancel and Resume buttons down for 8 seconds and then release both buttons. The Right Print Cartridge LED and the Resume LED will go off and the printer will return to a Ready state.
  • When the printer returns to the Ready state, it indicates the printer was successfully reset.

    The drum doesnt turn


    I would start by checking the belt to see that there is not too much slack in it. Applying a belt dressing spray may help. If not, and there is too much slack in the belt, it might be time to replace it. That is a lot less expensive than actually replacing the motor. Hopefully it won't come to that.
    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    You need to check if the Spray Arms are knocking against an item in a basket. If the source of noise cannot be determined, run a program without plates or glassware. If the noises continue, let me know for further investigation.

    Grunting noise?


    If your machine is a Brother 4100 you can clear the drum message by pulling the drum out of the machine and then pressing the clear button. The display will ask if a new drum is the be installed. Press the number 1 to say yes. Reinstall drum. This resets the drum counter.

    As far as the grunting sound, that may be caused by a tight or jammed toner cartridge. Try changing that out.

    Hope this helps.
