Its an elevator ascent/descent motor failure. You didnt by any chance have any thing such as a big box of paper or a trash can sitting under the exit trays did you? Check it to make sure the trays are level also.

    THIS FIXED IT. I slid the finiisher out, and gently played with the tray that did not seem level. I slid the finisher back into the machine, and it lowered itself down and worked like new. Thanks.

I had a similiar problem with a Bizhub C-353. I tried opening closing the front door several time & power cycling galore. Turns out a had a loose on the saddle tray sensor. I wish the stupid thing would have just said "Finisher tray full" or something close to it.

Bizhub 423 c1183 error code

id someone leave a trash can or boxes under the output trays? To solve this problem requires removal of the rear cover of the finisher. Then remove the elevation drive motor assemble. Be careful don't want the output trays to fall!!!!!! Then while placing them in their proper position re seat the drive assy. The top tray should be just below the orange rollers (If they are cleaned) you will see several actuators the trays has to just touch them.

Hi please can you help me to resolve my problem with a bizhub 35 it's get me a code number c1183

Hi elfethi,

This code c1183 is commonly caused by trays in your finisher which are not fully inserted into it's slot. It indicates an elevator motor Ascent/Descent Failure. You may want to try follow these steps that help you address the concern:

1. Check the output bin trays which are at the far left side of your machine.
2. Make sure that they are properly installed into the holders.
3. Then refresh your system by turning it off and on.
4.After doing these, the error should be gone.

If you're still getting the error after making sure that trays are properly installed then this means that the issue is already with the sensors or elevator motor. You will need to contact a local repair man.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Hi richard_hutc,

It would appear that you have an issue with the finisher/sorter on the side of the machine.
Specifically, C-1183 means the elevator motor hasn't ascended or descended correctly.
Open and close the finisher and look for any paper jams in this area.

Good luck

First check the alignment front and rear of the finisher, check the finisher exit guide rollers if the paper is exiting properly, open both rear and the front cover and check the lower gears attach is the up/down drive belt. that lower gear one might be broken by the pin slot.
