    FS-533 stapler clenched shut

    I've got a tricky problem with an FS-533 compact finisher. The jaws of the stapler are clenched shut and the stapler is at the back of the finisher. With the stapler clenched shut, the stapler can't move to the front since it hits the paper stoppers. I've tried manually turning the gears on the stapler, but it meets resistance and won't turn all the way. Any idea how I can release the pressure on the stapler jaws so it can be removed?

    It's difficult enough to manually cycle the stapler through out on a table. I'd venture to say it's impossible in the rear of the finisher.

    If I was a fortune teller I'd say: "You've got a major disassembly in you're future." =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Maybe you can get lucky and do a load check in Service Mode, to try to manually make the motors get it un-jammed or to a spot where you can see what is wrong?

    Unfortunately, there's no load check for that motor.

    Hi, it happened to me too


    If you remove the side covers, you can get your hand in some way. In this way you will be able to recover it manually.

    On an FS-533? There are no side covers, the only thing to the right of the stapler are the entrance guides, and those only come out by removing about 50 other things first.

    Hi, I mean the front cover and rear cover.


    In the manuals of the 8 series machines you will find small ideas to disassemble the finisher FS-533
