Broken fuser gear

Do you have instructions on how to get the fuser out and replace the broken gear and then reassemble the fuser and replace it in the XD100? I don't know how to get it all the way out with the wires attached.

Thanks the pictures you posted are exactly what mine looks like!

I am sorry to say that I don't have any additional information. I was asked to look at the broken copier by a friend, and after using this site for additional information, I suggested that he call for repair. I was not present for the actual repair, although I took a picture to try to help those in a similar situation.

I suggest using a copier repair service, provided you can find a reasonable estimate. From what I gathered, it's a delicate replacement.

Best of luck!

Not a very fast job if you end up having to replace the motor itself. But thats the fuser motor PN = 40X1661. You can pull the fuser out look to the right side and see a white gear find. A lot of time that gear or the ones around it are worn out. Every now and then its just the fuser itself has broken gears or something is stuck in the gear.

Your fuser assembly is not rotating, the drive gear is broken, the bushings inside the bearing is broken or worn out.worst case fuser drive motor. those fusers are rated at 500k. Take the front cover of the fuser assembly off and inspect that area for the problem. look for broken gear.

My HP Laser Jet 4 makes noise when I turn it on, but it indicates Ready. What could be causing this?


This sounds like you have a broken part called a fixing coupler. To check this unplug the printer, now turn the printer around so you can see the back side. Open the fold down cover. You will be looking at the fuser assembly. There are 2 screws that hold the fuser in place, remove them and pull out the fuser assembly. Now look inside the printer on the left side behind where the fuser was located. You should see a gear assembly. This is the fixing coupler. The small gear that is closest to the rear of the printer is the one that breaks and caused the issues you are having. Look over the gear and check if it has broken teeth. You can turn the gear by hand to look all the way around and see all the teeth. If you do find the gear is broken then you will need to replace the assembly. The procedure is fairly simple, if you can use a screwdriver then you can do the repair. We carry this part in stock and you can contact us at if you need more information.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

My printer keeps jamming. I have replaced the

The most common cause for jamming every copy on this model is a broken fuser drive gear. If you open the right side door you have a gate that flips open with a bunch of "teeth" on it. This gate is part of the fusing unit. If the paper always stops in this area when entering the fuser it is a broken drive gear. Your Xerox is made by Sharp. The part number for the gear is NGERH0540FCZ3
Perhaps you can find a local repair person who can replace it for you.
Good Luck

Schematic of the Xerox XC865

Usually you can find the place to put the part by noticing the location of mounting holes or an obvious space on the fuser where it should go. Otherwise you might check with some of the places that sell replacement fuser assemblies. They might be able to send you an exploded view of the fuser.

Here is a picture of the aforementioned broken gear, with a replacement gear visible for comparison:

From a different angle:

The printer repairman said that the plastic gear found in this and similar models can fail after as early as a few months of use. Best of luck!
