Question about Canon PC-430 Color Copier
My canon pc 430 copier the paper feeder has stopped working, the paper doesn't feed? I found a spring 1 inch but, I don't know where it goes or what it does.. Help please
You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.
This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.

Ok if you look where the paper is feeding into the printer you will see wheels on top, they move down when feeding paper.
that spring you found helps put pressure on the paper feed wheels, if you look at the wheels look for a little metal finger with a whole in it, spring attaches to that .
there will be another small whole in the frame below that attache the other end of the spring to that whole.
use needle nose pliers to do this
