Knowing your printer model name and serial number will help you buy the correct cartridges the next time they need to be replaced. Since every printer works with a specific cartridge series, you need to make sure you buy the appropriate printer cartridges for your machine. If you accidentally buy the wrong cartridges for your printer, you won’t be able to print! In this example, we will show you how to locate the printer model name and serial number of the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3730.
The easiest way to find your printer model is by looking at the front of your printer. Depending on what printer you own, the model name could be on the corners or the center of the front-facing cover. If it is on the front of the machine, it is usually close to the control panel. The printer model number could also be located on the top of the machine in the corners or center. Here, we find the printer model name on the right front side of the printer to the right of the control panel.
You can also find the printer model name on the set up / installation manual or installation CD included with your printer.
Another way to figure out what printer you own is by looking for the printer serial number, which is unique to your specific printer. The serial number is on the sticker that is usually located on the back or the bottom of the printer. This number is important if your printer maufacturer needs further information on your printer. The sticker below was on the back of Epson WF-3730.
You might also find the serial number on the inside of the printer too! When you lift open the cartridge door of the Epson WF-3730 to access the cartridges, the serial number is located on the left side of the machine near the cartridge access area.
