Gestetner c7435 paper jam at fuser unit

Hello, Hope someone can help asap. I have been running, operating, and fixing when needed a Gestetner C7435 for about 2-3 years. Fairly good at figuring things out. Problem: Error remove misfeed at fuser unit.. I have had this error before and fixed the problem. This time however, I have taken out all parts, examined, used a flashlight, removed and checked the fuser unit at least 4 times, rolled the blue dial etc.. The error message is still showing up. My concern is I'm wondering if the memory on the computer is "messed up". In otherwords, there is no paper jam actually. The last thing I printed were whole sheets, no little bit of paper missing etc... Is there a way to reset the Gest. ?? I print off the newsletter for the non-profit organization I'm pres. of Central Florida Palm and Cycad Society. Needs to be printed so I'm losing time this weekend because techs at where we purchased the machine are not in. Thanks for any suggestions. Diana

It sounds as if the actuator is out of position or bad. In the fuser exit there should be a thin little black (usually) actuator that hangs down and the paper pushes/ lifts it off of the switch/ sensor as the paper passes. If this is pulled out of its holder or broken it will act like there is still paper jammed. The actuator looks like a little ' j ' and is pressed into its holder. If this is seated properly then the switch is probably bad and needs replaced. About resetting --- a paper jam is considered an 'A' code and does not need the machine to be ' service reset '.
Please let us know what you find out.

That is a bad reading temperature of the Fuser Unit.
I will give same steps to unlock it.
Press yellow key
On the key pad press 1-0-7
Old the red key at least 3 sec
Press copy sp
Exit all the way out
Turn the machine Off / On.
This should be good. If doesn't work you have to call a technician to change some parts of the Fuser Unit like Hot Roller and thermistors.
Hope you understand.

Do You have anyone in the ocala florida area that services gestetner cpoy machines?

Look for a copier dealer or service center that is listed as repairing Ricoh, Savin or Gestetner. They are all the same machines. In other words your Gestetner copier is made by Ricoh and Ricoh Dealers are far more common and easy to find than Gestetner. If you need to know the exact model then just reply with your Gestetner Model number and I can tell you what the Ricoh equivalent number is.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have Gestetner DSM622 SP, Iam getting Errer code SC546, can someone explain me thanks

sc546 is a fuser temperature detect error. One or both of the thermistors most likely need to be cleaned or replaced, but you will have to go into service mode to reset the code once you do that. You should contact your local service technician or Gestetner dealer, as they can easily fix that problem.
