Kyocera KM-3060 Fuser Error Reset Procedure

Below you will find the Kyocera KM-3060 Fuser Error Reset Procedure. Some machines have this feature others don’t. They tend to be more common on these larger models. The purpose is to prevent overheating in the unit that can lead to more serious issues and additional damage to the machine. Most manufactures recommend waiting at least 15 minutes before resetting the fuser error to allow the unit to cool down. I usually spend this time taking the fuser out and inspecting the thermistors, thermostats, lamp contact points, and the overall condition of the unit.

I tend to treat these errors like the check engine light on your car. If it comes on once or twice a year then it’s probably not that big of a deal, you probably should at least have it looked at. However, if it comes on once or twice every few weeks or months then we probably have a more serious problem.

Now, if you perform the reset and the error comes back then look under that category of the machine for additional information on that particular error or click on the link at the bottom of the article for the fuser removal and replacement instructions.
