Hello all! I’m trying to get my 5028 up and running, it turns on but gets a paper jam right away. Looking for troubleshooting advice, and does anyone know someone in LA that could come fix mine?

If the paper does not even leave your drawer, your feed rollers have too much wear. They were originally made of latex and if… you can find them they are very easy to replace and located in a slide-in tray as you open your paper drawers. Same situation for the side tray on the right but those are trickier to replace because they are mounted on the registration assembly. See 2. If the jam is further inside then you have to replace the registration roller and registration clutch located in the registration assembly you can see as you open the… Read more »

I have a xerox 5028, bought it new back in the 1980s… having a problem with the fuser,
the code is U4, (no dash) wondering where to find parts for this machine. i have supplies, copy cartridge, and 3 toners. wondering what to do with this machine, if I can’t
fix it!

U4 fault means the heated rod that runs through the top roller of the fuser has failed.

It could be the overheat thermostat (which is also mounted above the same top roller) but most likely a failed element (rod)

They are a bit like a long halogen lamp.

If you can source a new heat rod, it’s an easy fix…. no more than five minutes.

Part number for the element (from an ageing memory!) is (I think) 126K760

The 5018 and 5028 were essentially the same machine. The only difference was the stickers on the the control panel and the ROM in the logic board. The speed difference was created by the 5018 pausing every 3 pages

I had to think way back but I do remember the 5018 scanner pausing after so many copies. Even back then I wondered why it would do that but now I know. I wonder why they wouldn’t just do away with the 5018 and try to sell the 5028 to everyone.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
