Instructions for the  Lexmark E260, E360, E460 Fuser Replacement – 40X5344

On these models the fuser life tends to vary from series to series but the fuser stays the same. If I’m thinking right some of the models have 120,000 PM cycles, while others have 150,000 PM’s and I think the high end versions go up to 200,000. Your machine or fuser will let you know when it is time to change. The 80 Scheduled Maintenance is the life warning for the machine which I just talked about. Other problems can be 92X Error codes related to temperature issues in the fuser or print quality issues. Below find the  Lexmark E260, E360, E460 Fuser Replacement instructions.
40X5344 E260, E360, E460 Fuser Assembly

The fusing assemblies tend to last for a very long time and hold up pretty well. When I’ve changed them it’s been because of maintenance messages or odd feed problems. You will note the instructions are pretty involved but can be handled rather quickly once you get it down. It looks harder than what it actually is. With that being said if you feel you need to replace the part your better off just making the call quickly rather than fool around with it because it is buried and who wants to take it out several times. Just replace it and get on with life.

Below I’ve listed the fusing assembly by itself and I have the maintenance kit listed too. If you print off the config page and you have 50,000 or more pages on the machine and haven’t done any real maintenance to the machine then it might not hurt to spend a few more bucks and just do the PM kit.
