Field Measures: When the fuser belt edge is torn, please replace the fuser unit with the new one. On your next visit, please check if the flange key of the bush is not in the U-shape groove. If it is in the groove, please replace the fuser unit with the new one. (For more details on the check, please refer to the pages 4 and 5.) Serial Nos. of the Affected Machines: Please refer to the pages 6 and 7.

Phenomenon
The following service calls may appear if the fuser belt is torn. - C6200 (Broken fuser edge heater wire) - C6600 (Fuser belt rotation error) - C6720 (Fuser IH belt rotation error)

Causes
A) If the flange key of the bush comes into the U-shape groove of the heat roller when rotating since the depth of the joint between the U-shape groove and the flange key to stop the rotation is shallow, the edge of the Ushape groove may be rolled up and the fuser belt edge may be torn by the rolled up part of the U-shape groove. B) The fuser belt edge may be momentarily bent and then torn if the fuser belt is pulled in the rotating direction of the bush due to the contact of the bush flange with the fuser belt edge.

Content of Changes
For the cause A) The joint shape between the U-shape groove of the heat roller and the flange key of the bush was changed to increase the depth of the joint. For the cause B) The round shape of the bush flange was changed in order to prevent the fuser belt edge from being bent (from R4.4 to R7). Cause A OK NG
Fuse belt edge scratched by the rolled-up leading edge of the U-shape groove

Flange key of the bush surely fits in the U-shape groove

When the leading edge of the U-shape groove is rolled up as the flange key of the bush comes into the Ushape groove.

Round shape of the bush flange changed

Contact area of the bush flange with the fuser belt edge becomes smaller after this change. Accordingly, the stress caused by the bent fuser belt is reduced since the fuser belt is hardly pulled in the rotating direction of the bush.

Procedures Open the paper conveying unit. Remove the screw (3X8B(S) III SR) and then remove the COVER WIRE FUSER. Disconnect the connector (x2) and remove the screw (4X12B(S) III SR)(x4). Then, detach the FUSER UNIT. Rotate the gear while twisting the FUSER UNIT to align the fuser belt toward the machine front side. (*) Please watch the video issued together with this service bulletin for the alignment of the belt. Video: [Fuser_belt_shifting_method_Video_E]
