    That Service Update describes my problem exactly, hopefully servicing the unit will fix the issue. Are there recommendations from Brother on how to service it or do they just recommend replacing the entire fuser? The The Service Manual does not address the greasing of the heater, only lubrication indicated is for gears. There are several videos on YouTube describing the procedure, but would be nice to see something official.

    Brother just states "swap the entire fuser" it's not meant to be serviced with single parts.

    Re: Brother HL6180DW Printing "Fuzzy"

    Well, I am pleased to report that, for now at least, regreasing under the fuser sleeve has solved the problem, print outs are as sharp as ever. I got some of the Molykote HP300 from partsmart (2g was enough, though I did buy an extra jar in case) and referenced a couple of videos on youtube. Thanks to all for commenting on the issue, the service bulletin in particular was useful, as it was reassuring to know I was on the right track.

    Congratulations! =^..^=
    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.
