Replacing Fuser Assembly on Xerox AltaLink B8090 Series

The fuser assembly or fuser module is a critical component in your Xerox AltaLink machine. It fuses the toner powder onto the page using pressure and heat to create a print.

Frequent printing causes the fuser unit to wear out, needing to be replaced. Your Xerox Altalink device will inform you when to replace your fuser unit. Another indicator that your fuser needs to be replaced is when it starts printing repeated lines on your printouts.
