Re: 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.

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.
If you pull the drum out of the machine. Close front cover. is the noise still there. If it is then you have a broken fuser gear. If noise is not there remove the toner cart. from drum reinstall the drum unit in machine see if noise is there. if noise is there then it will be the drum. If not reinstall the toner try that if noise comes back then it is your toner cart.
No there is no configuration page. The red blinking light means you have no paper under your blue tray or the paper empty sensor is broke. To identify the noise open the lid then close it, if you hear the noise while the fax is warming up then most likely you have a bad gear that meshes with the fuser drive gear, although it could also be the toner or drum. If it's not the toner or drum I stongly recommend a service technician , he should be able to provide an exit tray.
