    For loud knocking noises it's usually not a lack of lubrication within the bearing but between the contact surface of the bearings inner ring and the pressure/heating-roller it sits on. Materials expands/shrings during heat up + cool down phases causing the materials to slip a little and that can cause sounds like that in case there's not sufficiant lubrication.

    I wouldn't say it's all that loud. If I don't have any music on, and my server is shut down, I can hear it fairly easily across the office. Otherwise, I have to really be listening for it.
    It's a cross between a tick and a knock, in terms of sound profile.
    I'm pretty sure the others are correct, and I just need to bite the $20 bullet an buy a set of bearings from copyman. I'm just cheap, and it bugs me that I should be able to buy these locally, if I could just find them.

    To be fair, most of these 5 pages aren't me.

    Many of the posts are mine trying to convince someone how to save $500 for a new fuser. I've done everything I can except put the bearings in myself. Not sure how I ended up wasting this much time on one thread. Oh well this is where it ends for me. I won't even open this thread again. When a thread is dead it's dead!

    Whoa there Tex!
    I'm very appreciative of your help, and I'm intending to take you up on your kind offer of a set of bearings, I just have other things on my plate at the moment that are more urgent than fixing this copier.
    I'm sorry the thread has run so long, but I only wanted to fully understand the issue (which took about 2 pages) and exhaust local/online options for obtaining the bearings (which took maybe 4 comments?) before I jumping into the solution. I would have felt awful silly if I had bought a set of bearings from you or Copylite or wherever, and then the next day someone said "you know they sell those at Lowes, right?". Just trying to be diligent.

    I'd also swap the bearing because you'll have to remove them anyways for lubricating the pressure roller axis. Haven't bought any for km but these are usually some generic stuff so not really hard to get. If you take a close look you'll probably notice some engraving on the bearing the rest is up to google^^
