laserwriter pro 600 paper jams at fuser

I have an apple laserwriter 600 that jams at fuser just as paper begins to exit fuser. the first inch of the paper will pass through then it stops and jam light comes on. if I open and close the top of the printer(door) it will force the print through a little more. it takes to or three door closes to get paper completely out of printer. diagnostics by jumpering the two pins on serial port indicate all is well. any ideas Moe? I have fixed many a printer by reading these forums and hope you can help me on this one...
How far out of fuser? Does it reach the first exit rollers? If it reaches the first exit rollers, then you need to replace the exit rollers. If it doesn't reach the exit rollers, You need to replace the fuser and maybe the motor drive gear assembly. Put the fuser out and look at the gears on the left inside of the machine that would match up to the fuser gears. Are any broken or missing? Good luck.

it stops after the first inch of paper exit's the fuser. it does not reach the first set of rollers. I will pull the fuser as u stated and inspect the gears

the gears all look ok. I pulled the fuser and the teeth on gears r all intact. possible fuser defect or motor assembly?

I'm going to send you to this page. Take the top off. You'll have to push down on the door interlock switch and hold the back door closed. Watch the action of that door sensor in the picture. If it's not actuating, it's probably a broken exit sensor arm pivot. http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/exitsensors.html

You actually have to replace the Paper Guide Assembly on the fuser. That's the part the pivot pin breaks on. We have them in stock along with an instructional video. Email me if you want one.
