officejet 4500 Wireless

When the printer begins to print, there is a loud noisy gear grinding sound coming from the front right of the machine. I have noticed that the sound happens as the 6 front rollers are moving.

I would take a look at this document it outlines some things to look at and clean.   It is normal for the printer to make some noise I wouldn't be alarmed if the printer still functions.

Thank You. This thing is very noisy. It sounds like a jackhammer
