Locate the green handle at the bottom of the front cover with the number two on it. Turn the handle until it reaches the unlocked position. This step is crucial for releasing the mechanism that holds the fuser in place.

Step 4: Remove Fuser with Orange Handle

On the right side of the drawer, you'll find the fuser assembly. To remove the fuser, grasp the orange handle on top, pull it straight up, and swing it out of the drawer. Be cautious as the fuser can be hot.
