Maintenance Kit - HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281cdw - T6B83A

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281cdw - T6B83A
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281cdw - T6B83A - is starting to squeak loudly when we print move that a few pages.  I have done maintenance kits before on my other HP Color LaserJet printers, but I cannot find the correct unit / part number for this printer.  Does anyone know the best way to find this part number?

There is no maintenance kit on these low-end printers. You might find parts sold separately, but nothing like maintenance kit.

Have you ruled out a possible consumable problem, the toners might squeak?

@Valsimot  is correct. You can purchase parts by themselves but depending if you are using OEM or refurbished/3rd party parts the cost will quickly exceed the value of replacement. We see this often when people purchase a printer that is designed for a 1-2 small office/home office users being dropped into an business or enterprise because the purchase cost was so low. However, toner costs per copy and maintenance costs will quickly eat away at savings and increased downtime caused by over use winds up costing you more in labour.

Toners have been replaced. The squeaking has not gone away. M

The printer is for home use.

Good point I should have made, if others are viewing this post. The first place to look for noise issues on these printers is cartridges. I know not everyone has a spare set kicking around but if you do, try that first. You can look at the cartridges and if you see lines of toner on the ends of the green/blue drum unit of the cartridge that is a good indication that you probably have toner contamination on the drum bushings and that is going to cause noise.
