View Full Version : "Motor Failure - call repairman" for Laserjet 5

I recently received an error stating "Motor Failure - Call Repairman" on a laserjet 5 that I have here at work. I noticed that the fuser was not moving when it tried to feed a sheet through. So I opened the back while it was processing a job to see it in action. I was confirmed in that the fuser was not rolling and when I removed the fuser I noticed that the teeth on the gears that made contact with the fuser had been worn down or ad broken off. Do you sell these parts so that I might rplace this little gear box, or would it be better to get a another to take its place? It is a part that consist of about 6 or 7 gears that turns the fuser. If you look in the back of a laserjet 5 with out the fuser in it you will see what I am talking about. Sorry I don't know the technical term for it :) , but I hope this description will help.

Thanks in advance.

Well, the main gear drive is only two screws, but you have to remove the formatter, and main motor first. Since you will replace the motor, it's a simple job.
Check here at www.printertechs.com for part No's.
Also check the drive gear on the face down delivery assy.
