Step 1: Power Down the Machine

Before diving into the fuser replacement process, powering down your Xerox VersaLink C7030 is crucial. This initial step ensures your safety and prevents any potential damage to the printer during the replacement.

Note: For the Xerox VersaLink C7020/C7025/C7030 printers, the fuser is the same on the color model and black and white model, so they are interchangeable.


Step 2: Open the Left Side Door

Open the left side cover by pushing up on the gray latch. Inside, you'll find the fuser, marked with an "R8" label and heat warnings. Take caution, as the fuser can be hot.

Step 3: Turn Orange Knobs Counter-Clockwise

Proceed by loosening the two orange finger screws underneath the fuser by turning them counterclockwise until they feel loose.

Step 4: Remove the Fuser

Gently pull the fuser straight out by grabbing the two black handles at each end of the fuser. It is important to handle the fuser carefully to avoid burns. With the old fuser out, you're ready to introduce the new one.

Step 5: Insert the New Fuser

Unbox your new fuser and slide its ends (in the first picture below) onto the metal slide areas (in the second picture below), ensuring that the "A1" and "R8" labels are in a readable position. Once in position, give it a good push to secure it in place.

Step 6: Turn Orange Knobs Clockwise

To secure the new fuser, turn the orange finger screws clockwise. This step involves a bit of finesse, as you'll want to screw them back into the frame of the machine. Make sure to do this on both sides until the fuser is securely in place.


Step 7: Close the Left Side Door

With the new fuser successfully installed, close the left side door. Ensure that both the front and rear latches are securely fastened. This step is crucial to maintaining the proper functioning of your Xerox VersaLink C7030.
