Adding Fuser Oil

Attention!

You may leave printer power on while you perform this task, but the printer should not be printing.

Using the wrong fuser oil can cause print quality problems. See Table 20 for the correct part number.

Do this task when you see the following message: ADD FUSER OIL

You need the following items when you add fuser oil:

Note:
You do not have to replace fuser oil the first time you see the ADD FUSER OIL message. To bypass the message, SELECT the Ready push-button on the main Display/Touch Screen.

The ADD FUSER OIL message reappears each time end-of-forms is reached, or every 4 000 feet of forms thereafter. When 50 000 additional feet of forms have been processed since the message originally appeared, you must add fuser oil before you can return the printer to Ready status.

  1. Open the rear center and rear right covers of the printer.
  2. Remove the cap from the oil reservoir. Put the cap in a safe place.
  3. Locate a bottle of fuser oil and a plastic spout. (Every new package should contain a bottle of fuser oil and a plastic spout.)
  4. Ensure that the spout is clean.
  5. Remove the bottle lid and the inner seal.
  6. Screw the spout onto the bottle of fuser oil.
  7. Bend the spout and carefully place it into the oil reservoir opening.
    Operator Tip

    When you add fuser oil, be careful to pour slowly. A filter in the reservoir restricts the flow of fuser oil.

  8. Tip the fuser oil bottle to let the fuser oil drain into the oil reservoir.

  10. Ensure that the oil reservoir cap is clean.
  11. Put the oil reservoir cap back in place.
  12. Close the rear center and rear right covers of the printer.
