Brother Fuser Replacement Instructions – MFC – 8510, 8710, 8910, 8950

One of the nice things I always liked about Brother machines was the fact they still used Hot Rollers in their Fusing Assemblies. Times change, and so have the Brother Fusers. Like HP, Brother is now using heating elements covered by a fixing film. While these new designs should help envelope feeding and quicker warm up times they do come with some additional print quality and feed issues. In other articles I’ll tackle those issues. This article is strictly to provide the Brother Fuser Replacement Instructions for these models of machines.

Brother Fuser Replacement Instructions

1. Open the Back Cover
2. Seperate the Back Cover from the outer chute. The service manual doesn’t mention it I’ve found the best way to remove it is one side at a time. Trying to do both at the same time might end up and breaking the ribs.

3. Remove Back Cover
4. Remove the outer chute from both post. The outer chute needs to be at around a 80 decree angle for removal as the post as to match the opening of the outer chute hinge. See area circled in picture below.

10. Remove the Ground spring. I always forget how this comes out so if you don’t plan on taking these instructions with make a note of how it comes out.
11. Remove the center and side thermistor harness from the eject sensor PCB. Again, I always forget about these because they aren’t in clear view. Be careful when removing as the connectors can be fragile in this area.

12. Remove the final screw and remove the fusing unit from the back of the machine.

  8. I replaced my fuser, afterward, nothing but FUSER ERROR and PRINT UNABLE DE messages. reset everything. prints 3 pages single-sided and then I get FUSER ERROR.

    Unfortunately, SAVE the MONEY of a FUSER and Buy a different printer,
