I am having the same problem, replaced the maintence kit for a Xerox Color Qube 8570. To much oil on the maintence kit transfering onto the drum. I have tried all the cleaning suggested and still having the issue. The printer printed beautifuly until I change the maintence kit.
my solution is that you have to clean the drum encoder strip and sensor which is located behind the drum fan on the right side
I'm having exactly the same issue with a new maintenance kit for an 8880.
I've tried 4 drum cleans and it's still happening. Going back to the old one (still a few paged on it) has fixed it.
The kit has been stored flat since receiving it a couple of months ago.
TIA if anyone has any ideas.
Hello to any and all of you that are having the issue of excessive Oil on your print outs after just changing or installing a new maintenance Kit into any of Xeroxes Solid Ink Printers. It may come down to how your maintenance Kits are being stored on the shelf. Check if your Co. is storing them on their ends. This may cause the Oil in the fiber role to build up on the end of the role where gravity could push the oil out of the fiber and then build up into the tray. This will continue until the Oil is reabsorbed into the Fiber through normal usage of the Printer. See if this will help all of you that are having this higher then normal amount of Oil showing up on your Prints after installing a new maintenance Kit.
Thanks Kinzi, but I have done that many times and there is still too much oil being deposited onto the drum.
I suggest you clean the drum by following THIS guide, and see if that helps.

I just replaced the maintenance kit on our 8570 colorqube. This is not the first time therre has been excess oil after installing a new maint. Kit, it happened the last two time. How can I solve this?
