I am not familiar with this model but the fuser assembly is typically located very close to the exit area of your unit.
This MAY be either a quartz lamp or a solid state heater that uses heat and pressure to fix the loose carbon permanently to the paper.
Its operation can be noticed (if working) by a pronounced higher level of warmth near the document exit.

This may be user replaceable but I wouldn't advise it unless the operator's manual describes the procedure.

The part is not terribly expensive:

Scan down the page for your model number.

Before siccing a tech o nthis, you might want to open the machine as far as you can without unscrewing stuff and inspect the guts of it; sometimes the error code is wrong about the source of the problem but in this case, it is technically simple to monitor the fuser temperature and report the failure to heat.

Hello! my Samsung SF-565PR printer is now experiencing low heat error. it started late last month, from 13th month after purchase. i already tried unplugging and plugging it in. i read the manual and it...

in order to melt the dust ink the fuser must be at a certain heat if this rod blows then it will not work it should last a lot longer than it has but it would seem it has blown unless there is a power short up to it you will need to have it looked

there is no easy fix for this fault

hope this helps sir

My fax is say ' fuser error ' then ' memory received'. What does this mean and how do I clear it? Andie B

Fuser error means the the fuser (the part that heats up and "fuses" the toner onto the paper) is not heating up properly. This usually requires the fuser to be replaced. The memory received indicator is telling you that the machine has received a fax transmission. It can not print it out however because of the fuser error. If the fuser is replaced then the faxes in memory will be printed.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Samsung sf-5100 fax toner empty

I have a feeling that it is a re-manufactured or compatible cartridge??
There is a fuse that needs to be replaced on this unit. it blows when the cartridge is installed to reset the machine. If the fuse has not been replaced or is defective the machine will not recognize the new unit.

Machine will require fuser(hot bit at rear) replaced before it will operate, take to dealer for quote or if brave and 240v happy then buy a fuser and get your tools out rip off the covers and in the back you will find fuser assy.
