Question about Samsung SF-4500 Plain Paper Thermal Fax

Paper will not feed through - Samsung SF-4500c FAX

Wonder if you can help.
My fax will not feed the paper through. The rubber rollers keep slipping on the paper. Fax is around 7 years old

Can the problem be fixed by

1) Replacing the rollers - are they worn down ?
2) Cleaning them - is it a surface

My fax machine Samsung LaserFax 560. The first page gets stuck, but not the second pg. After 4 to five attempts, pgs run fine. If it stop faxing, I will have the same problem with the 1st pg...

Try cleaning the paer feed roller with a detrgent based industrial cleaner/ not an alcohol based one as this will dry out the roller and make your problem worse. If you are in a humid environmentyou may need to replace the paper in the paper tray and "fan" it prior to use, or it could be the paper feed clutch itself, which would be more complicated to remove clean and lube.

I keep getting intermittent paper jams in the back. Not every time, just occasionally. Nothing can be stuck or jammed because I keep getting good copies too.

if you have used the fax a lot or have used a cheaper quality paper the rubber feed rollers are slipping.

Open the unit up and use a bit of isopropyl alcohol on a paper towl and rub or clean the roller. Let dry and close it up again. That usually will clean enough to make it work again. If not the roller may need to be replaced.

Machine keeps saying paper out

You have one of the paper path sensors stuck, or broken. I'm afraid this is a repair center issue, unless you are familiar with the disassembling of the unit. Good luck.

Be blessed.

Samsung Fax/phone model 1600

You could try opening the feeder and clean the gray rollers with mentholated spirits and see how that helps as it just maybe the rollers are slipping slightly.

Once you have done the above take out all of the paper from the back feed and using one sheet blot the leading edge with some spirit and place back into the machine (The back of it) then try coping something there will be a paper jam and do this a couple of times. Once you have done this wipe the area dry put new paper in and then try doing a copy and the paper should feed perfectly now and the test will come when fax comes in.

I do hope this helps you
Thanks J
