What could cause the paper feed to continually jam?

The printer is clean smooth and quiet but the paper continually drags on the right side to shift the paper and jam the feed.

As you use your printer little bits of paper will cling to the rubber feed rollers making them less tacky causing the printer to jam (Age can also effect the rubber as well).

I would first try wiping down the rubber feed rollers with some isopropyl alcohol. You can also try a rubber rejuvenator solution as well if the rubber has dried out. Lastly, replace the rollers if they are not able to be cleaned.

Beware, most of the rubber rollers of modern printers are made from urethane rubber. Contact with alcohol will actually ruin those rollers. Much safer solution is to use inexpensive reading glasses alcohol free lens cleaner.
