Submitted by Matthew Eberhart on Mon, 09/11/2023 - 10:36

You may not often think of your printer’s fuser, but it is an important part of your Xerox machine that must be properly maintained and replaced when damaged. 

Luckily, Xerox makes this easy with parts that can be easily replaced by users, even without the assistance of service technicians. 

However, it can still be helpful to check out some how-to guides before getting started. 

That’s why we’re going to provide you with instructions that will help you quickly replace the fuser on your Xerox VersaLink C500 or C600 series printer.

The replacement process varies between models, which can make it complicated for people who don’t know much about printer maintenance, and the relatively simple process of changing parts can be made even more complicated by poorly written instruction inserts. 

Luckily, watching someone else replace this part on the same Xerox machine or reading a quick how-to article before you try replacing a part on your own is a great, easy way to save yourself valuable time.

•    VersaLink C500

Let’s uncomplicate printer maintenance by walking through the replacement process. You can follow the process by reading the written instructions provided below (with pictures) or you can watch the video linked at the top of the blog.

Before we get started, please remember that you need to turn off your machine before starting this replacement. The fuser is very hot, especially when the printer has been in use, so be careful handling it.

Part One: Remove Fuser 

1. Use the handle to open the back cover on your machine.

2. Right inside the back cover is your fuser.


3. On the bottom of the fuser, you will notice two gray latches. Put your thumbs on the thumb-holds above the latches and use your forefingers to squeeze the latches. You will pull the assembly out while squeezing the latches.
