    If this is an iGen, check the metering roll blade and see if it has pulled out in the center. If it has, then re-insert and make sure the screw that helps secure it is tight. It is located at the front center of the ram assy. . It screws in from underneath the front center edge of the ram assembly ( the edge that faces the fuser roll).

    Did you just replace the roll or has it been running fine for a while and then this started happening?

    I get this on light gloss stocks (128gsm) at roughly the same interval. I just replace the heat roll each time. Cleaning it doesn't fix the problem.

    Check above the fuser assy. Underneath the fuser exhaust fan area. Sometimes there is fuser vapor buildup on the frame under there and it can drip down.
