While feeding paper, printer is making squealing noises. Routine maintenance of feeding mechanisms

We've never done what should probably be routine maintenance on the above printer. Now that it is making noise, now seems to be right time to clean up, oil, and whatever to keep the device is good shape.


I have found not instructions on how to do routine maintenance. Do such instructions exist? What supplies are recommended?

Honestly, there is really no maintenance recommended on this device. If you are having noises likely there is a problem with the printer or you have a bad cartridge (most likely on this engine).
