Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer
I was trying to help out our local pastor with his 1600n MFP for the open heat error, so it took it apart hoping to find some physical evidence of a break or something. In the process, a small part which is likely the "Open Door" switch part creating the error fell out on its own. Here'a couple of pictures. Just where does it go, I couldn't after two hours figure it out or find any diagrams online anywhere. The "open heat" error probably posts after this but I won't know until I clear this one. Thanks, Dick
That looks like part of the heating element itself. You need to remove the four screws on the back door, then remove the door so you can have access to the fuser module. There is a black module about 8 inches across that has a heat warning on it and two sets of wires coming out. With printer unplugged and face down, unhook each wire set and locate the four screws that hold it in place. Remove them, then pull the module up and out. On either side of the module you will see where the wires connect to a long thin metal plate that runs through a rolling mechanism. In all likelihood, if the element on the fuser is broken you will need to order a new one. Installation is simple -- reverse my instructions for disassembly (Dell can send you the new part--just call Dell parts and service to order).
