Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer
Hi goodmorning how do i locate my dell 1600 printer fuse
There are apparently two causes of fusers going bad in these printers.
First - Old age. The fuser is old and it dies. In that case, a new fuser will fix the problem.
Second - The fuser lamp control circuitry is bad. This can cause the fuser lamp to stay on all the time - which it ISN'T supposed to do. This in turn causes an overheat condition which will burn out the fuser and cause a burning smell.
If the second condition above is occuring, it will simply destroy a new fuser if one is installed without correcting the regulation problem. I have read that the controller board is serviceable separately.

Chances are that you are looking for your printer FUSER, not a fuse. The fuser is the rolling element that bonds (via heat) the plastic charged toner particles to your paper. It is located in the rear of the printer. Unplug, remove four screws that secure the back of the printer. Once removed, you will see a circuit board and the fuser. The fuser has two sets of wires (one on each side) that should be unplugged with your hands. Remove the four screws that keep the fuser module in place and replace that module (call Dell parts for replacement).
