Okidata FAX machine - Printer Alarm 4

"I am currently working on a Okidata fax machine Model Okifax 2100. The display reads: PRINTER ALARM 4[TEL], CONFIRM AND 'STOP'

If anyone has seen this problem and would be kind enough to share the fix it would be greatly appreciated."

(From: Darrin Acreman (darrina@profax.com.au).)

In all Oki plain paper machines, 'Printer Alarm 4' is caused by the fuser section failing to reach the correct operating temperature. The most common cause is a blown thermal fuse in the fuser section.
