Replace the engine PWB.
Additional Troubleshooting Tips
1. Due to the fact it is an overheat issue. Turn the machine off and let it cool down for about 30 minutes.
2. Do not run the machine in temperatures that exceed 85 to 90 decrees. In the middle of hot Indiana summers I do get calls out to factories where machines do overheat because they cannot cool themselves down once they get heated up.
3. Make sure the cooling fans are working and that you don’t have anything leaning against the sides of the machine that can block the cooling vents.
4. Verify that your print settings are set correctly. For example, if you tell the machine you are printing on heavy cardstock and you are actually printing on plain paper the fuser can overheat.
5. Clean the thermistor. Dirty thermistors can lead to incorrect temperature readings.
6. Replace the fusing assembly.
