I need more information about this fuser wire.

As I said in another post, I don't see a "fuser wire".

What I see is two rollers.  One is solid and floats on top of a larger
one.  The larger one is hollow, with a long light inside of it, very
hot, like a 12 inch lightbulb.

The way you talk about the wire above sounds like it is a thin wire that
touches the paper, and I don't see that anywhere.

The path looks like this to me:

<tray>-------<toner drum>-----<hot roller>----<output tray>

This printer is the same engine as an Apple Laserwriter 360 I believe.

I can't find schematics, or a description of the fuser that would tell
me what to look for.
