Paper overfeed

Great printer except paper feeds continuously.

How do you uncover the feed mechanism?

There is a solenoid on the right side that energizes to release the pickup roller. There is a foam pad to stem the clicking noise that disintegrates over time and becomes sticky. That allows rhe roller to turn continuously. Solution is to remove the spring loaded plate, scrape off the residue and replace it with some thin sticky back felt you can buy at a hardware store. A lot of work to disassemble it. Good luck.
