    1028/1128 fuser grinding

    has anyone found a good solution to the grinding of the fuser by the scraper claws? at least once a week i end up replacing one of them and its starting to get on my nerves how crappy they are.

    I don't do many Mita anymore, but if the claws are putting too much pressure on the heat causing noise I would reduce the tension of the claws.

    Stretch the springs out a bit to reduce tension, or find smaller springs that fit.

    Old school field mod.

    Why do they call it common sense?

    If it were common, wouldn't everyone have it?

    We have not had an issue with the claws, just the thermostat grinding into the heat roller. That might be your issue. Kyocera has redesigned the fuser and put out a new version of firmware--13 and higher--that is supposed to take care of the issue. We have nearly 70 in the field and I keep 6 spare fusers on hand.

    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success

    We have had that happen several times too. Seems to happen around 80-90k.

    The new firmware lowers the fuser temp around 30˚C so the fuser frame shouldn't warp anymore. Also make sure that sleep mode is activated.

    The new fusers that I am putting in are the same as the old. The firmware only lowers the temp in the sleep mode. When you put in a new fuser flash the machine and turn sleep mode on.
