Hereof, why does my Brother printer keep saying replace drum?
The Brother machine will display a 'Replace Drum' or 'Drum Stop' message when the machine has printed approximately 15,000 pages. The drums should be replaced as a set in order to maintain print quality. Unlike the toner cartridges, the drum change is not automatically detected by the machine when they are replaced.
- Make sure that the machine is turned on.
- Open the front cover and leave the machine turned on for 10 minutes to cool down.
- Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
- Unpack the new toner cartridge.
- Pull off the protective cover.

Without a drum unit, the toner powder in the cartridge cannot be transferred onto the page. The two parts work together to create a print! You can't have one without the other and expect the printer to work properly.
