Apple Apple LaserWriter 360

Apple LWS 360 Manual Feed

The mechanism, on my Apple LWS 360, that handles manual feeds picks up more than one sheet at a time, and/or feeds the paper through the machine at an angle, causing paper jams. The rollers seem free of any material. Is this something serious to fix? Also, when I turn the printer on, I hear slight grinding and loud squeeking noises.

If the repair will be costly, can you recommend a reputable used Apple printer model and web site to find one?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

The whole assembly is held in by 2 brass screws at the back of each side bracket. Take the assembly out. Get some rubber rejuve for $1 on our kit page. Rejuve both rollers and the long thin rubber strip in front of them. The strip is what keeps more than one sheet feeding at a time.

Your quick response is greatly appreciated! Couldn't readily find the "2 brass screws at the back of each side bracket," but I'll keep looking. In the meantime, I'll take a closer look at your "kit" page.

Thanks, again!

There's one screw on each bracket. You have to really stick your head in to see them. You'll have to feel for them when you put the screwdriver on them.

OK! I "think" I found them. At any rate...I'll give it a try...thanks!

Couldn't find the Rejuve item on your site. Clicked all the links. Am I pretending to be blind?

I am having the same problem with my LWSelect 360, however, I am having the same problem: not sure I am finding the correct screws, and assembly. Do I need to remove the whole plastic casing? If I am, how do I do that? Are there any diagrams for the LWSelect 360 on the web for us "visually" inclined people?
