Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer
After a particularly nasty paper jam, I received an Open Heat error in my Dell 1600n printer. After reading online, it seemed that the problem may be that I needed a new fuser. I ordered one and installed it. After I turned the printer on, it started to smell like something was burning and I believe the display had a message about overheating. Eventually, Low Heat Error was displayed. I turned the printer off, then on again and got an Open Heat Error message, which is now all I can get after turning the printer off and on.
It sounds to me like the safety fuse that I've seen mentioned in discussion elsewhere regarding this problem may have opened. If that's the case (i.e., the printer overheats whenever it's turned on), does that mean my problem lies somewhere besides the fuser (I expect that it does)? Also, is it possible to buy and install a replacement fuse, or is the new fuser now toast (as the first one also is if the same thing happened

"Open Heat Error" Means --- You need to make sure the voltage of the fuser is compatible with your printer.
