Question about Brother IntelliFAX 4100 Laser Fax
It seems to be some kind of paper gear that is grinding behind the toner/ drum cartridge. It makes the noise whether the toner/ drum is in the machine and also when it is out of it, when the front door is closed. Sounds like something is stuck or a gear is stripped. It is a loud noise. Can this gear be replaced? Also, I'm not sure how to open the machine in the back so I can see the gear to see what the problem is. -Jan
Not too good news I'm afraid. It sound like the fuser gear has failed. Generally the fuser unit (hot section or hot rollers in the back) need to be replaced. Usually when the gear has worn or failed the fuser rollers are also worn and need to be replaced. The gear can be replaced seperately but is a very risky operation and usually results in parts in the fuser unit falling appart due to age and wear, so it is best done as a unit. If possible do not run the machine as it can cause damage to gears around the fuser unit. The best option is to find out how much a fuser unit and labour to fit would be at your local service centre.

Did you try a new toner, sometimes the drive gear on the toner it self is bad
