When faxing 2 or 3 pages all seems to go well, the pages go thru the rollers etc... then a message prints out saying it jammed when it in fact, did not. When I contact the recipient I find out they either received nothing or one page with only a partial image.
Try to reset the printer.
Take out the power cable without turning it off and then press # and 6 and while pressing # and 6 plug the power cabel and keep pressing the buttons.
The unit will turn on and then turn off...release the buttons and then press the pwer button and turn it on.
Try to fax now.
Also open the adf cover and clean the roller and seperator pad.

You'll want to purchase the service manual for this printer if you do not already have one. Obviously the fan is the most annoying problem. But the jamming, the roller marks, and other issues would indicate that the entire printer is probably needing to be cleaned out and that the rollers may even need to be reconditioned or replaced.
Sounds like there is something going on with the paper sensor flag that resides in the top cover of the automatic document feeder. Need to make sure it is moving freely. It is spring loaded so it should move freely and spring back in to place. Sounds like your may be sticking in the up position after a few sheets. When the ADF lid is down these sensor flags should go in to holes in the bottom of the ADF. Hope this helps..
I had the same problem with a Brother MFC-8460 and called Brother's support line. The solution that worked for me was to lift the top cover where the sheets of paper go through when you fax. On the right of the black rectangluar piece with grey roller there is a slot in the tray with a black lever inside. The black piece was stuck down inside the slot and had to be popped back out. Once it was out I hit the stop button and it was fixed!!
