You can download the manual as a PDF here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc5440cn_all
Select language and search.

Usually the unable to clean message means that either the printer has a mechanical problem or some foreign object is inside the unit. Open the scanner cover and check for any foreign objects.

Then transfer any faxes in memory off the unit to a different fax machine or computer. Press Menu/Set 9, 0, 1 to check for faxes. If there are none, unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for several minutes. Then reconnect the power cord and see if the message repeats. (If you need to transfer faxes see section 11-4 (page 132) of the manual, see the above link. Unplugging the unit will lose the faxes in memory.)

I hope this helps. If the message repeats, the unit probably needs service.

Check for a paper jam. I just encountered this same error on my Brother MFC-290C, and that was the cause. I had to unplug the printer's power cable to clear the error message.

My Brother MFC-C


I have the same problem as amira58 - the machine keeps telling me it's unable to clean, therefore I am unable to use my printer which is mfc-215c.
Can you advise how I fix this problem ??, especially with the price of a new colour printer now below $100 - is it worth my taking it to a techno to get it fixed (printer is about 4 years old). Look forward to your response. Ahi Allen
