What Are Printer Maintenance Kits? Printer maintenance kits contain the spare parts that have highly predictable wear characteristics and are used to rebuild, maintain and repair printers. Under heavy usage, most internal rollers wear down and lose their ability to grab paper and guide it smoothly through the printer. A maintenance kit will give your printer new life.


What Is In a Printer Maintenance Kit

Maintenance kits vary from one model to another and one vendor to another so its important to ask. Typically they contain the fuser assembly which is a part with a uses heat and pressure to bond the toner to the paper.


They also will have 1 transfer roller which 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.


Next popular part are the pickup rollers, often called feed or separation rollers. These are used to pickup the paper from the tray and feed it to the printer.


Finally it will have separation pads which 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.


Why Should I Use a Maintenance Kit? Maintenance kits contain the spare parts with highly predicable wear characteristics. Printer maintenance kits eliminate repeat service calls and maximize the paper feed and print quality performance of the laser printer.


Each model has a predefined OEM recommended page replacement interval to keep your printer running with high quality results. In addition, maintenance kits are priced substantially lower than purchasing these same parts individually and are easy to install.

If you are replacing your fuser, this would be a great time to install a maintenance kit. Under heavy usage these rubber rollers wear down and lose their ability to grab paper and guide it through the printer.


Why Replace The HP Maintenance Kit Maintenance kits eliminate repeat service calls and maximize the paper feed and print quality performance of the laser printer. In addition, maintenance kits are priced substantially lower than purchasing these same parts individually.


When To Replace The HP Maintenance Kit

There are many ways for the HP laser printer to tell the user its time to replace the maintenance kit. Sometimes the printer will alert the user with a message on the printer's control panel. Other times the printer may exhibit frequent or intermittent problems such as page jams or image defects.


Some HP laser printers do not keep track of page counts replacement intervals so it will be up to the user or HP printer technician. The HP printer service manual is a great resource for both determining when to replace the maintenance kit and how to do it.


Heavier usage, decrease the page interval between maintenance kit replacement. If you are printing pictures and full page text or printing on heavier paper you will need to perform more maintenance kit replacements.


Tracking Toner Cartridge Usage

Roughly we see a OEM recommended 10 to 1 ratio for fuser / maintenance kit replacement, meaning for every 10 toner cartridges used it may be time to replace the maintenance kit.
