What is a Fuser Maintenance Kit? If your laser printer is giving you an error message like "Perform Printer Maintenance" or "Replace the Fuser Kit", a Fuser Maintenance Kit is what you need. These kits vary, but most will contain a fuser assembly unit, transfer & pick-up rollers, paper feed & separation rollers, air filters, and other components for your laser printer.
