What you will hear
The printer produces an abnormal or excessively loud noise. This sound can occur every time you use the printer or it can occur intermittently. The noise is sometimes described as a high-pitched squealing, or squeaking, or a grinding noise. It emanates from the left-hand portion of the multi-purpose feeder (MPF) area, as shown in the image below.

NOTE: Before performing any troubleshooting steps with the printer, please check the following;
- A 230.05 paper jam is associated with the noise every time you try to print, or
- The paper or printout's print appears to be crooked or skewed when duplexing (printing double-sided) on Page 1, which is the second pass through the fuser.
If the printer experiences the issues listed above along with a loud squeaking noise during printing, this issue normally requires a service call. For a detailed explanation, please
