    Swapped the toner / drum unit with a like model still makes same noise... Is the fuser unit a separate component?

    We have gone through 3 IntelliFAX 4100 machines in less than 18 months (small office - real estate) - they are good until they start clicking! Our make a loud clicking noise and the output is full of lines across the page. I have heard that recond cartridges may be the problem - however - even after replacing both the fuser / drum and the cartridge - it still has the same problems. I'm ready to change brands unless someione has an answer. - at $299 - they should last a LOT longer...

Our tech told us that any cartridge from Office Depot will make it click and have problems. We changed back to a Brother cartridge and it works fine!!

When I go to print or copy the machine makes a loud clicking noise and then says paper jam. Brother MFC - 8460 N


Hello,
The loud clicking noise is either the toner cartridge or the paper feed. If the jam occurs in the drum and toner cartridge then I recommend changing the toner.
If the paper is not being fed at all then you need to have the paper feed kit replaced.
Thanks,
Pat

Loud clicking noise when faxes arrive


The noise may be caused by the toner cartridge binding up. This can happen with remanufactured cartridges more so than OEM. Try swapping out the cartridge.

Grunting noise?


If your machine is a Brother 4100 you can clear the drum message by pulling the drum out of the machine and then pressing the clear button. The display will ask if a new drum is the be installed. Press the number 1 to say yes. Reinstall drum. This resets the drum counter.

As far as the grunting sound, that may be caused by a tight or jammed toner cartridge. Try changing that out.

Hope this helps.

Intellifax 4100 grinding noice


Probably caused by the toner cart. Only use genuine new Brother brand supplies. Remans fail quite often with Brother machines.
Possibly bad gears on fuser drive. But with the poor print quality, I suspect it is the toner.

Gears grinding with Brother Intellifax 4100


Does it only make the noise when printing. Do you hear the noise when sending out faxes? I have heard grinding noises onlt when using poor quality toner refills, or the fuser gear and or drive gear asm is stripped. First try a known good OEM toner.
