Question about Dell 3100cn Laser Printer
I keep on getting paper jam remove paper from the feeder
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
Turn off the printer.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). 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.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

SOURCE: paper feeder
You probably is working with paper excessively wet. Even when you cannot detect the moiture can be present in the paper. Try to use a paper dryer (there are for sale in computers stores). Dont use to leave the sheets in the printer when you are not printing, leave them in the dryer.

Have you physically open the Document feeder cover on the left and made sure that there are no little pieces of paper here? Plus opening this section is the only way to reset an ADF jam.

First and foremost make sure the paper you are using is dry, if the paper you are using is damp you will continue to have this problem. Removing jam papers involves you first removing the cartridge then you'll find the paper compartment.
