The problem clear.You have to replace the feed rollers to resolve the issue because the grinding noise you can hear is coming from the feed rollers.

Hi! You may want to run a roller cleaner for this. Its a paper that absorbs dirt on the rollers when fed into printers. This may help. Have a good one and thank you for using FixYa!

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

I have a Brother MFC 8440..the paper has vertical black lines


Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

Clicking noise with MFC-8640D


Make sure that the paper guides in your paper tray are not holding the paper too tight against the front of the tray, there should be about 1/16 inch play so that the paper can be lifted to the roller easily. Also take out your toner and drum and turn it on, if the grinding noise is gone you may need a new toner, some refilled toners are too tight to turn properly.

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

PAPER JAM


If you pull the drum out of the machine. Close front cover. is the noise still there. If it is then you have a broken fuser gear. If noise is not there remove the toner cart. from drum reinstall the drum unit in machine see if noise is there. if noise is there then it will be the drum. If not reinstall the toner try that if noise comes back then it is your toner cart.

Brother MFC 8440 makes very loud noise when printing/copying


Very commonly a broken gear on the right side of the fuser. Replace the fuser and this will fix your issue. Let me know if you need a part number and pricing.

Good luck!

I have a brother MFC 8440


Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.

Yes. There is some paper left in the very edge (mostly left hand side). Have a good look there by opening the scanner top.

Paper jam on my brother mfc 8440


It is possible that a small piece of paper is stuck in the paper path above the primary feed roller. It will most likely need to be disassembled.
