The message is caused by the fuser having had 100,000 pages or so through it.

It will be pretty much worn out, and should be replaced.

The transfer belt also has a similar pagecount limited life, and also the pickup/separation/transport rollers would benefit from replacing (they can get 'flat spots' on them

SOURCE: my xerox 6180 seems to overheat when I print

Your Fuser is most likely the issue. Make sure that it is seated correctly and that ALL of the packing tape was removed from the unit. Many items inside the printer are taped in place for shipping. If you missed one of them, it can cause a bunch of issues, like paper jams or the paper not getting close enough to the fuser on the way out.
It's normal for the printer to get warm when printing color. The extra colors have to be fused individually. So if it's a 6 color, color printer, then the fuser will be on and heating 6 times as much. I would check to make sure you are using the correct weight paper as well. Some papers may be too heavy (30lbs. bond vs. 20lbs. bond) to pass through the rollers correctly and cause paper jambs.
This really sounds to me like a issue with the fuser not being installed correctly. Make sure it is locked in securely to it's mounts and that 1 of its mounts isn't flopping around. Even if it's just a little loose it will mess up the paper path and not fuse the toner to the paper. Also, some types of paper wont take toner at all! This is because it might be Photo Inkjet paper with a semi-gloss or glossy finish. There is usually a way to hold the door open and run a test print to see where in the printer it's jaming and you can see if it gets close enough to the fuser to bond the toner or not. I have a feeling that's where your issues are coming from.
Try taking all the toner cartridges out as well as the paper trays and the fuser n(if it's not built into the toner carts themselves. IF THE FUSER IS BUILT INTO THE CARTRIDGE, please be careful when checking the fuser wire and do not to touch or breathe the toner dust. IT'S VERY BAD FOR YOU!!! Cancer kind of Bad! If the fuser IS built into the toner cartridge, make sure the cartridges are all fully seated and run a test print with the correct weight paper. 24lbs bond is pretty safe weight to work with, as 20 pound paper may be too thin and the printer is having problems grabbing and passing the paper into the next part of the printers paper path. And NEVER use compatible toner carts. I say that because the toner cartridges are used and fusers have a limited life-span and may be defective now. Test it with the REAL toner carts from the manufacturer and see if that fixes the whole problem.
BTW, you're not saving anything by using those rebuilt toner carts. In fact, if you look at all the problems you're having now and how much time and money that have been wasted on bad copies and paper jams, you'll see that refilled toner carts wind up costing you more than if you had paid the extra few bucks for the reliability factor.
Hope this helps

Testimonial: "thanks for your help - that's all really useful information. It could well be the way the fuser is seated. Thanks again"

Remove the paper tray and check the guides. Make sure they are lined up on the 8.5 X 11 marks. If it is lined up, try going into the menu of the printer and reset back to defaults.

My Xerox phaser 6180 keeps saying there is a jam at exit. Open door A. I have taken it apart & cleaned/cleared everything I can. Any suggestions?

This could be some paper still stuck in the fuser, so check that.

The usual cause of this, is the 'paper out' sensor arm (in the fuser) being broken.

I'm fairly sure that this is NOT available from Xerox as a spare part, so the quickest, easiest solution is to replace the fuser.

Clean printheads on Xerox phaser 6180

This type of print quality defect shows up if you have loaded the wrong type of paper in your machine and didn't remember to change the paper type (plain paper, card stock, labels, etc.).
This can also happen if the paper has a high moisture content, or if the humidity in the room is too much. Also make sure the room temperature is within its normal operating range (not too hot, not too cold).

The problem you describe could also be caused by using non-Xerox toner/drum units. Compatible toners don't work very well in Xerox printers.

Aside from those problems, the only other thing would be if the Fuser Assembly is near the end of its will also cause some print quality problems like you are describing.

Check the fuser for paper stuck in it.

Check that the 'paper out' sensor arm (in the fuser) is not broken. If it IS broken, you'll need a new fuser.
