Printed image The ink creates the image on the paper, however, it does not bind to the paper and easily rubs off. Is there a temperature setting for the fuser unit that 'sets' the ink?

There is no temperature setting for the fuser unit. Either your paper is too humid (it also curls when coming out of the unit). Or your fuser unit is bad.

What is a fuser motor or unit?

The printer has several motors most of which are used to transport the paper from ''a'' to ''b'' to ''c'', etc...

The ''fuser'' motor is the motor that transports the paper to the section of the printer that ''fuses'' the image to the paper.

In other words, the ''ink dust'' (''toner'') inside the machine is layed on the paper (and stays there by static electricity until it reaches the ''fuser'' stage). The ''fuser'' motor brings the page to the ''fuser'' stage where heat burns the ''ink dust'' permanently onto the paper.

When printing envelopes ensure you set paper/media type to Envelopes, and feed via tray 1/bypass . Paper type setting sets correct fuser temp, the fuser is the hot bit at the rear that "melts" the image into the paper.

If paper type is set correctly then I recommend you change the fuser unit.

Ensure envelopes are standard type. ie you are printing on paper envelopes

Dell 2155cdn toner rubs off

It sounds like the fuser is not heating up to the correct temperature. If you are printing on specific papers, for example: envelopes, bond, linen, make sure to set your printer settings accordingly. Otherwise you will need a new fuser unit for the printer.

Loose toner in the unit, toner wipes off the paper.

Image fixing concept: After creating the temporary image on the paper moves to fuser assm for permanent fixation. Fuser duty is to press the image with respective heat to fix the image as permanently. In your cases fuser is not creating the heat result permanent fixation was not happening. Fuser has to be replaced to shoot out this problem...

It sounds like a few things could have happened.. Someone might have put a tyvek type paper in the machine that has partially fused to the FUSER. Or your Fuser is reaching the end of it useful life.

The Fuser is what puts the image/text on the paper.

Replacement of the fuser unit will correct this. The average price for a unit is 175-225 dollars + install.

On anything other than plain printer paper, the ink tends to rub off the printed page - really a problem with labels and envelopes. I have tried changing the printer settings for these items, but it does...

You may need a shop to increase the fuser temperature. You also may just need a new fuser. In printing preferences you need to make sure you're telling the printer you're using envelopes or labels. When the toner rubs off, the fuser is just not hot enough.

This machine truly isn't designed for printing very high volumes of heavier bonds/envelopes. I think what you will notice is if you only print a few sheets at a time that the toner will be better fused than if you print many sheets.( you can check /test yourslef) The heavier bonds will quickly and dramatically reduce the temperature of the fuser and it can't recover on long runs of heavy paper.
Low temperature= poor fusing

Ink rubs off or prints double/messy

Sounds like your fuser is getting ready to stop working. Your fuser creates the heat so the toner from the cartridge is baked onto the paper as it passes through, your toner is rubbing off, so you could try cleaning, but I'm sure it'll be a new fuser, or possibly a fuser roller. Your owners manual has all the information and step by step trouble shooting guide to let you know.
