Jamming of paper using the Automatic Document Feeder

When we try to make copies from the ADF or send a Fax, the paper gets jammed and will not feed. We have tried cleaning the feeder, dusting it with can duster but nothing seems to work. For now we can't fax but only by faxing from the scanner glass. any solutions?

Re: Jamming of paper using the Automatic Document Feeder

You may have a really tiny paper jam. You need to open up unit to get access to feeder properly. Use a torch, jams can be so small you can miss them. cheers lilacgerry

Just trying to make some copies...the display on the printer says

The ADF is the "automatic Document Feeder" it thinks something is in there when there isn't. check to see if something is stuck in it that would cause it to "think" that.

The paper will not feed to fax or copy on the top loader.

If your Dell 1815DN is jamming at Document Feeder (ADF assembly) the display may read Document Jam. You should replace the ADF Seperation Pad (Part# D1815-Z3) and the ADF Pickup Assembly (Part# D1815-Z4). Here is a video that shows you how. has these parts and ships same day.

Canon Imageclass D880 automatic document feeder problems


Clean the ADF rollers and pad with alcohol.

Check to see if your ADF has done over 90 000 copies and if it has, change the ADF pick up assembly only.

Good Luck

When trying to fax I get an error "open adf cover"...

You should be able to. It sounds like you've got a paper jam in the document feeder. Chances are there was a jam and part of the document (a small peice perhaps) is still lodged in the document feeder unit.

  2. Grasp the upper edge of the automatic document feeder (ADF) assembly and open it.

  5. Lower the roller assembly.

Ricoh C21SF Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)

Take a little soap and a little water and clean the gray feed tire that is located in the document feeder. Check for any paper obstructions. If the machine has had a lot of prints I would replace the feed tire.
