Maintenance Kits 101
What Are Printer Maintenance Kits?
Printer maintenance kits contain parts that have predictable wear characteristics and are used to maintain, repair, and rebuild printers. Under normal usage, the internal rollers wear down and lose their ability to grab or separate the paper and guide it smoothly through the printer. A maintenance kit gives your printer new life. Typically, Maintenance kits contain a fuser, transfer roller, and pickup rollers.
Why Should I Use a Maintenance Kit?
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.
What Are Printer Maintenance Kits?
The parts included in these kits have varying estimated service lives – depending on the printer.
