    Bizhub C220 is making strange noise + Video

    Hey,

    I bought a used Bizhub C220 recently. The copier has only done 120000 copies yet. All the consumables are relatively new and I thought it would be a great deal :-)
    Unfortunately this machine is making a strange noise. For me it sounds like rattling wheels inside the machine.

    I recorded a video of this noise:



    The noise occurs in different situations:

    1.) At startup it takes relatively long

    2.) During printing

    3.) now and then if the copier is turned on, but not used. (the noise takes a relatively short amount of time, but I guess the copier is adjusting something)

    4.) If someone opens the front-cover or the door on the right

    I tried to localize the sound and I think it is coming from the area of the fusing unit. The fusing unit is relatively new, the service menu showes a total of 57000 Pages for this unit. Therefore I donīt want to change that unit without being sure this is the problem.

    Have you had this problem before?
    Can you give some advice what could solve or help to localize the problem?

    Thanks a lot,

    Christian

    Know that noise anywhere.

    transfer belt cleaning section is blocked.

    clean it out and unblock the chute to the waste toner bottle.

    15 minute job.

    problem solved.
    If at first you don't succeed, try the way I told you how to do it in the first place.

    Once you've done it a thousand times like I have you know the problem before the customer even finishes saying hello.

    Will replacing the belt fix it as well?? Or is it down inside the machine where it's clogged?

    Belt is usually fine and only needs to be vacuumed out. There was a bulletin on this about cutting the plastic inside the chute or something like that.

    The right way to clean it is taking trans belt out, removing the cleaning unit (2 screws) and vacuuming out. Or if you want to cheat you can just vac where it goes into waste box. Doing it the right only takes 10 mins more.

    Same issue but different story with the C353 series!

    Theres a short pipe in the front of the machine from the waste output of the belt to the top left of the waste box.

    if this is not cleaned out your new belt will get backed up too.

    I've only ever seen the belt back up without the pipe also being blocked when its long hair thats gone into the waste section of the belt.

    In hot climates like where I live its always the front pipe that gets blocked first and then the belt waste has no where to go.

    This issue is still present in 4, e & 8 series no where near as common though. If you're never seeing it, you're living in a cold or mild climate

    They came out with a new style seal on the waste toner pipe that is supposed to help prevent the clogging. you could try replacing it if you continue to have issues. Waste Toner Pipe (p/n A0EDF36001).
