Grunting noise? Our Fax machine is making a loud grunting noise. It says to change the drum, but it's said that since the last time I replaced it. I'm becoming all kinds of frustrated with this machine!

If your machine is a Brother 4100 you can clear the drum message by pulling the drum out of the machine and then pressing the clear button. The display will ask if a new drum is the be installed. Press the number 1 to say yes. Reinstall drum. This resets the drum counter.

As far as the grunting sound, that may be caused by a tight or jammed toner cartridge. Try changing that out.

Hope this helps.

As rinse cycles are cold fills you may have a problem with the cold water supply valve. If you put your machine on a cold wash only and it does the same thing this problem should show up while filling and lead you in the right direction for repairing it.

I have a clicking and grunting noise from rear brakes, also a scraping noise on a 2006 NISSAN ALTIMA. i was told by one mechanic that cheap brakes and rotors make noise like this and that I should change...


this could be true. if the rotors are worn down(if it looks and feels as if there is a lip on the edge of the rotor) then most likely you may need to have them replaced.

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 want you to feel all 4 tires, feel for lots of flat spots. feel all the way around them. they might have flat spots on them. this will cause this noise. you neer to rotate your tires at 3,000 miles front to back. this will stop them from cupping out. thats what the tire store calls it. have your tires checked for balance when you rotate them. your tire with flat spots will make a good spare tire. switch the bad one to your spare to see if the noise gets changes

Typically, the grunting would indicate a bad drive. Replace it. They're fairly inexpensive nowadays ($20-$30).

Recieving fax error


It could be a bad drum unit. If the drum doesnt turn smoothly it will make a clicking or grinding noise since it is gear driven. Take out the drum and turn the gear with your thumb. turm towards you. If difficult Thats it. It also could be a fuser gear. good luck Lawrence

Outgoing fax makes loud clicking noise


2 different problems here. 1st is with document feed and 2 is with paper feed.

1st prob seems to be with the paper feed roller not meshing at the gear. Probably a broken piece on the lower document tray assembly. No real fix for this unless you can strip it out and haywire it.

2nd prob is probably a poorly meshing drum unit. Examine the gear teeth on both the drum and the machine. As you have replaced the drum already (presumably with a brand new one) You might possibly find a missing or badly worn tooth on the messhing gear in the machine.
