No the FK-170U fuser will not work in a printer that is compatible with the FK-150 fuser unit. I found a Kyocera FK-150 Fuser Unit available on Amazon here: . Other sites have third-party replacements.

The FK-150 fuser is the correct fuser for the FS-1028MFP, FS-1128MFP, FS1350DN, among others. The FK-170U fits the following Kyocera printers: FS-1035 Mfp, FS-1135 Mfp, FS-1370DN and FS-1120D. There are a few other printers. The design changes means they can't be substituted.

I hope this helps.

How do I change out the fuser fixing unit on a Kyocera FS3900 DN

1. Draw the rear unit.
2. Insert a flat-blade screwdriver to push the
fuser lock (gray colored) on the rear unit and
the fuser unit is separated from the rear unit
Do it both ends of the rear unit.
3. Check or replace the fuser unit and refit all
the removed parts.
Place the fuser unit on the rear unit (rails)
and push the fuser lock so that the fuser
lock catches the fuser unit.
Do it for the both ends of the fuser unit.

Kyocera FS-2000D error 6000:0087166

This Code relates o the fuser unit, needs to be replace but if this code keep coming constantly from time to time than you need to check this:
There is a two wire power connector from the switching regulator ( by the interlock switch ) that goes to the fuser connector. This is one of the areas we check for the 6000 error code.
You could also check for a small piece of paper lodged in the fuser connector, both on the fuser and the one at the engine board.
also Check the power at the wall outket. Low power will cause 6000 errors.

Seven black spots are appearing (pea size) from top to bottom in a line? How to get rid of them? Thanks.

Hello, The Kyocera FS-4000 have a separate Drum Unit and Developer unit installed.
The Developer delivers the toner to the drum unit, either could cause the issue you are describing. The Fuser in the back is also a possibility, however remote for this discussion. The most likely component failing is the developer unit. The developer is accessed by flipping the top cover and withdrawing the developer out. Look at the developer roller for a smudge or smear, you may be able to smooth out any smudges with a piece of paper, do NOT use your hands or any liquid of any kind. The drum unit slides out the left side of the printer VIA the access panel. The cost of these components can be quite a bit. If you have any spare I would install them one at a time and see if you can determine which is causing the problem.
