I acquired 3 of these units and they have gotten light use [less than 3,000 pages each]. 1 unit "squeaks" when feeding paper but I thought I'd be able to swap parts if needed one day. Recently, one unit started to consistently jam with the paper about 1/4 inch into the fuser area. Not feeding multiple pages so I think the separator pad is fine. I say 1/4 inch because when the page is extracted, there is a slight crease about 1/4 inch across the top. Sometimes I can get 10 pages through OK, but after its warmed up, maybe only1 or 2. I changed the cartridge. No joy. I thought I'd swap the fuser units but first I tried the "squeaky" printer. Prints fine but exactly the same jam. I have the service manual and can take these part easily. But the manual isn't giving me a good clue as to the issue. Could be a timing issue but there aren't many sensors and the manual says sensors rarely fail. Anyone with experience able to focus me on the cause of the jam? Thanks.
