What is a fuser?
Paper fresh out of the printer is warm because of the fuser unit! A fuser unit is a pair of heated rollers within the printer that fuses the toner onto the paper being printed on.
Why does it have to be replaced?
The fuser assembly needs to be replaced every so often because of the constant wear within the printer. Dust particles from toner and papers latch onto the parts of the printer.
For example, because toner is a powder, it commonly sprays onto parts of the printer when being pulled to the paper. Dust from the paper also accumulates within the printer from all that constantly passes through.
The build-up of all these particles creates scratches on the fuser, which leaves lines on the printed output. Most printers have alerts that let you know when your fuser assembly needs to be replaced. However, if you see lines on your pages, you’ll know that it’s time for a new fuser! Fuser replacements can be purchased separately, but for some printers they are included in the printer maintenance kit.
