How do you prevent jamming on fax machines to prevent downtime for your business? Let us go over a few points so that you will always be ready to receive that important contract, resume from those joining your firm.
Your trays have a specific capacity that you should keep under. I recommend keeping the tray at a 50% capacity for normal use and 75% if you are expecting lots of traffic to the fax machine for a given day. A benefit of keeping the trays at a lower capacity is the reduction of stress on the pickup rollers so the rollers do not wear out too quickly while also reducing your chances of incurring misfeeds by picking up multiple sheets. It’s also very important to set the levers for the trays for the correct paper size. If it is not set correctly, misfeeds can incur or the paper can be pulled in at an angle and cause a jam.
Paper comes in many colors, shapes, thicknesses, and sizes so be sure to match up the guides in the tray correctly. Before loading any paper into the fax machines, you should make sure that the pages are not sticking to each other by fanning them. At times when the paper is being processed in the factory, glue or adhesive for the protective wrapper (which holds a ream of paper) will get unto the sheets of paper thus gluing them together.
