Removing fuser problem

I need to remove the fuser to remove a paper jam. However, the documenation and installation movie on Xerox's site are completely useless as the inside of the printer looks nothing like mine! The instructions says, "4. Move the black locking switches at both ends of the fuser unit forward to the unlocked position." I am completely and utterly stumped. I see NOTHING that remotely resembles the pictures, and certainly nothing that can even be MOVED to locked/unlocked positions. I do see the green handles and I can lift them up, but I can't remove the fuser. When I open latch B, it looks NOTHING like the pictures and movie. My fuser unit is on the inside of latch B, and doesn't require me to even open latch C to access. It is very frustrating as I am unable to use my printer until I get some help from Xerox, but maybe someone will be able to help me sooner. Thanks.

I can't find any documentation on this online, other than from Xerox site. Could you send me the link to the documentation on Xerox's site, so I know you're looking at the same thing I find there?

    Here's what I've dug up. Let me know if this doesn't match your printer.

    Before you do any of this, turn the printer off.

    First you open the front panel with button B. This is the same method you use when removing jammed paper from the fuser - I get the impression you already have done this.

    Then, you open latch C. It doesn't directly obstruct the fuser, from what I can tell, so I'm not sure why you open it. I can only assume that it will be in the way of the trailing end of the fuser as you pull it out.

    Then, you grip the two green handles and lift the fuser out. However, some models of the fuser itself have small switches. They don't look like switches so much as a grooved part of plastic that can slide either forward or backward - I'm not sure which. They SHOULD have a little picture of a lock, in locked and unlocked positions, next to the switch. One is on either side of the fuser. If you push those both to unlocked, then you should be able to pull the fuser up and out.

    And of course, any time you work with the fuser, be very careful. Parts of it get EXTREMELY hot, and can cause serious burns, unless the printer has been turned off for many hours before opening it.

The error 010-311 appeared. i reseated the fuser unit several times. no success. any ideas?

Hi Anonymous,
If you have a spare Fuser Unit I would suspect you install that and try it.
Have you had a jam in the fuser in the past in which case check the paper sensors are working correctly by activating them with a sliver of paper.
I have known the exit sensor to be jammed and only when you remove the exit transfer unit to the finisher will it be obvious.
If that is a but daunting then you might need to call in Xerox.
Good Luck.

I have paper jammed in Xerox 7700 rollers and cannot remove even though I release the green lever on right side. Do I need to release something else?

The green lever you are referring to are I'm assuming is on the fuser. If the paper is jammed in the fuser and you are unable to remove it try removing the fuser and trying to remove the paper again, there are two thumb screws that hold it in. Make sure the printer has been off for awhile because the fuser gets VERY hot. If paper is constantly jamming in the fuser or you are unable to remove the paper you should replace the fuser, part number 016-1887-00 offers them for $$235 new and $139 for a refurb. Hope this helps, good luck

Xerox M15i has a paper jam 2 error, how to fix

Hi, open the right side as if you were removing a jam. You will see 4 silver phillips screws. Remove them, unplug the fuser and slide it out. I think you will find either a paper folded up in the fuser or in the paper path just past the fuser.
The fuser itself probably needs rebuilt or replaced.

Take care

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.

Xerox 7750 - Jaming in fuser


Solution 1: There is probably a very small piece of paper caught in the fuser, remove it from the machine if you can and try manually feeding paper through it.

Solution 2: Try different paper. The paper may be too weak to pass through the hot fuser, and this doesn't matter you are always using the same paper company, sometimes they change their suppliers.

Follow the link below and good luck.,/?St=299,E=0000000000024640321,K=7426,Sxi=18,Case=obj(20159)

Also check this link if there is a grinding noise as well as the jam.,/?St=299,E=0000000000024640321,K=7426,Sxi=18,Case=obj(21995)

Xerox phaser 6120 laser printer paper jam fuser

You can remove the imaging unit, then
Depending on the stock being used for the job, raise or lower the left and right colored Fuser separator levers. The levers will stay in the raised or lowered position on their own.
the levers are green. The fuser itself is not easy to remove.
Do you have any warranty left on the machine? Or a depot repair agreement?

Xerox 416 Fuser

Is it getting thru the "pinch of the fuser and catching on the stripper fingers? If so clean the fingers, ensure they are not worn or tips broken.(Running sheets with dark lead edge can cause sheets to stick to rollers,try running blank sheets to clean up, if they get thru then try normal copies)
If the sheet stops before entering the rolls more likely to be dirty entry chute, drive problem or sensor problem....need more detail
