On and off when a sheet is maybe 1 inch out of the fuser it starts to jam up in the fuser (pull the paper out and it looks like an accordian). I bought a new fuser...and it is doing the same thing...I tried flipping the paper and filling the paper try up and no help.

Re: oki c5150 fuser jamming
Ii may be that you have poor sensor flaper response, somewheare between paper pick up section and fuse unit. Check the paper registration sensor.On sensor flaper you have a spring wich can be dirty of toner or grease so she slows down the flaper.
2) did you check the pick up clutch?He is maybe worned out so he does not react in specific moment, and couses the delay jams
3) did you clean all the pick-up,feed and separation rollers.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If the Jam is in Tray 1: 1. If you can see the jammed sheet, remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out. 2. If you cannot see the jammed sheet, open the tray 1 door and pull out tray 2. 3. Push down on two tabs to release the tray 1 panel. 4. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out. 5. Push up on two tabs to replace the tray 1 panel. 6. Replace tray 2.
If the Jam is in Tray 2: 1. Pull out tray 2 and place it on a flat surface. 2. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out. 3. Replace tray 2. 4. Press OK to continue printing.
If the Jam is in the Fuser area: 1. Open the rear door. 2. Remove any jammed sheets. 3. Close the rear door.
If the Jam is in the Output Bin: 1. Look for jammed paper in the output bin area. 2. Remove any visible media 3. Open and then close the rear door to clear the message.
It is possible that the paper may tear when clearing the jam. Be sure to clear any paper fragments that tear off.
This will happen if the belt isn't properly settled, so that the sheet of paper enters at a slight angle and jams. The roller loader will then fold it into an accordion shape.
While I don't understand how the printer let you print (the sensor should have raised an alarm), you could try extracting the belt unit and re-settling it. Verify the blue retainers have been fully rotated (one eighth turn clockwise) and the handle is completely down.
okay, I have this problem I think. It is jamming on the OUTPUT side of the fuser, and I have replaced the fuser with a new one.
I learned tonight, through trying various things, that it will not jam with the printer lid open. (you can make it "print" with the lid open if you push the lid switch in so that the printer thinks it is closed. That made me wonder if it had anything to do with the led strips (black bars attached to the lid) so just for fun I unplugged the C led strip so that it wouldn't produce any light onto the drum. With the lid closed and the C disconnected, the printer will not jam. (but you get no blue on the page of course!) when I re-connect the C led strip, it jams on the output side of the fuser every time. It is very consistent.
I don't understand how putting blue toner on a paper can make it curl so much that it jams up in the fuser, but it does.
I'm sure there is something else gong on here that I don't fully understand- hopefully someone who knows more than I do can use this info to help us all out a little.
I'm going to go and fiddle with the drums now. I don't have an extra one right now, but I'll see if I can narrow it down further.
There are 3 little black and white rollers under the cover on the back of the printer. They are pushed under the upper rollers. They should be on the outside of the upper rollers. Somehow they got wedged under the upper rollers. This should fix the accordian paper jam.
Fuser's orange roller is not meant to be wrinkled, if this is then I would recommend you replace it (just slides out) pic below
If printing on card, you need to feed via manual bypass and exit from the back, not on the top, aka the "face up tray." Tray pulls out from rear. Rear tray will only stack a few card sheets at once.
Setting on printer's control panel must be set to card/heavy paper type on manual bypass tray
Their may still be some card in fuser causing jams.
You know what I would try, look in the fuser unit and see if any paper ripped off and got stuck in there. Wait until it's cooled down, but usually if you have to pull paper of of there, little pieces can get caught in there. Also, you may have a full sheet in there, I've had people leave and entire sheet in the fuser all scrunched up and the machine print fine for another 100 prints and then have an error and the paper coming out looking like it almost caught fire.
That's where I would look first if there isn't anything in the print path under the toners, etc.
