Printers require regular upkeep and the occasional part replacement to run smoothly. Over time, some internal parts of your printer will deteriorate due to typical wear and tear. Maintenance kits can keep your running at top form for longer if installed at the recommended time as determined by your printer manufacturer. Most maintenance kits include a fuser unit, transfer roller, installation tools, pickup rollers and separation pads. Every printer is different, so be sure to buy the correct kit for your specific printer model. Replacement is usually recommended after you have printed out a certain number of pages. Consult your printer’s user guide for details on your printer. HP, for example, recommends that you replace the maintenance kit for the LaserJet M601 after printing 225,000 pages.
