  1. Open the back cover.


  2. Pull the blue tabs at the left and right sides toward you to release the fuser cover.
    The machine's internal parts will be extremely hot. Wait for the machine to cool down touching them.
  3. Use both hands to gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.
  4. Close the fuser cover. Make sure the blue tabs at the left and right sides lock into place.
  5. Close the back cover until it locks in the closed position.

    If the paper is often jammed at the back of the machine, open the back cover and try printing documents.
