Safety Precautions
To Use the Printer Safely
Warning
There are high voltage electrodes inside the printer. Before you clean the inside of the printer, make sure that
you have turned off the power switch and unplugged the printer from the AC power outlet.
DO NOT handle the plug with wet hands. Doing this might cause an electrical shock.
The fuser unit becomes extremely hot during operation. Wait until it has cooled down sufficiently before
replacing consumable items. DO NOT remove or damage the caution labels located on or around the fuser.
DO NOT use flammable substances or any type of spray to clean the inside or outside of the machine. Doing
this may cause a fire or electrical shock. Refer to the User's Guide for how to clean the machine.
2
Safety Precautions
DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner to clean up scattered toner. Doing this might cause the toner dust to ignite
inside the vacuum cleaner, potentially starting a fire. Please carefully clean the toner dust with a dry, lint-free
cloth and dispose of it according to local regulations.
If the printer becomes hot, blows smoke, or generates obscure odor, immediately turn off the power switch and
unplug the printer from the AC power outlet. Call your Brother dealer or Brother Customer Service.
If metal objects, water or other liquids get inside the printer, immediately turn off the power switch and unplug
the printer from the AC power outlet. Call your Brother dealer or Brother Customer Service.
This printer is heavy and weighs approximately 64.2 lb. (29.1 kg). To prevent injuries use at least two people
to lift the printer. Be careful not to pinch your fingers when you put the printer back down.
