My Ricoh 388 is in need of replacing the fuser unit which we just replaced months ago and are very expenseive. Is there a way to fill the oil only in the fuser unit instead of having to replace the entire unit because they are over $300?

Unfortunately, on the AP3800C the oil supply unit is part of the fusing unit. However, you can purchase just the oil supply portion of the fusing unit and replace that (part #G0604022).

I'm not sure how much that would cost, but it's got to be cheaper than a whole new fusing unit.

How do I top up the fuser oil on a Ricoh CL7000 printer does not seem to be anything in the maintenance manual


You don't. The Type 7000G Maintenence Kit is the self contained oiler unit, rated for approximately 30,000 prints on 8 1/2" x 11" stock. If a person were to try to "top off" the oil, where would said person locate the correct type of fuser oil. Not all fuser oil is the same, viscousity wise as well as chemical composition. What an expensive mess.

Ricoh fuser oil replace message


That is not a good idea. The oil is kept track of by counting pages, not by a sensor that measures the oil level. The oil runs out and the machine can't tell and now you have ruined the fuser. Which cost a lot more than the oil tank.

Ricoh Aficio 2238c: Fuser Oil Unit


you really can not refill the bottle but I would recommend two things. One find a fuser oil unit on ebay and order it quickly. Next hit the yellow clear modes button, then hit the numbers 1 0 7 , then hold the red clear stop button till the display panel changes. hit copy sp, select 7 data log. now use the page down arrows located in the middle of the disply till you see 7804 push it then go to #10 oil supply and hit execute. this will reset the oil counter and allow you to use the machine till you get the new unit.
