A maintenance kit is a set of replacement parts for a printer. Every printer has a preset maintenance interval, which occurs after a certain amount of pages are printed. The maintenance interval lets the user know that it’s time to install the maintenance kit so that the parts within the printer do not get overused.
Every printer and manufacturer is different, so the parts included in the kit will also be different. Parts that may be included in a maintenance kit are the fuser assembly, transfer roller, pickup rollers, separation pads, corona assembly, fan assembly, cleaning cloths and gloves.
The fuser assembly is a pair of rollers that fuse the toner into the fibers of the paper. A transfer roller is an electrically-charged roller located underneath the toner cartridge. When the paper passes through the drum, it also passes through the roller which transfers toner onto the page. Pickup rollers, often called feed or separation rollers, are used to pickup the paper from the tray and feed it to the printer. Separation pads are made to assist the pickup rollers by applying tension so that the paper is pushed to the printer. When the separation pad is worn down, it cannot push the paper properly which causes paper jams.
A printer maintenance kit contains all of the tools and supplies needed to perform preventative maintenance at the appropriate time for your office or home printers. Different manufacturers assess different maintenance intervals for the machines they produce, so these periods can be anywhere from once a month to once a year.
Every printer model is different, so the parts included in individual kits will vary. Manufacturers are usually aware of the most common points of failure on their equipment. They will pack those specific parts into the printer maintenance kit so users can easily replace them when needed.
Most printer maintenance kits share common parts. These are replaceable parts that are often included in commercial printer kits.
It’s crucial to pay attention to the maintenance of your printer, as ignoring the alerts can potentially cause severe wear and tear. Maintaining the parts inside your printer avoids permanent damage and the need for replacement. Don’t have the bandwidth to get to printer maintenance regularly?
