Brother MFC 8480DN and 8890W Squeak
Brother, once again, has proven why more and more resellers are putting their machines on show room floors and other are getting the boot. The Brother MFC 8480DN and 8890W are unique machines that can fit into any business setting. Wether it be in a small to midsize work group setting with 4 to 5 users or in someones personal office, these Brother machines can handle the work load and with its wide range of features will be able to handle whatever jobs you require of it.
About the only problem I’ve run into so far with the Brother MFC 8480DN and 8890W is a rather annoying squeak that can develop in the rear chute assembly. Due to the heat and the constant movement of the roller shaft in the section, there doesn’t seem to be adequate grease to keep the assembly lubricated. I’ve just been removing the assembly from the back of the machine. Disassemble the unit and use a light oil to lubricate the bushings, gears on any other plastic part the roller shaft comes into contact with. Reinstall the chute in the rear of the machine and run about 10 to 15 copies and the noise should be gone.
Hopefully this post will help others out there dealing with this annoying squeak coming from their Brother MFC 8480DN and 8890w.
