Issue

The document feeds from feeders J, K, or both, moves through the inserter, and is driven into the outer envelope without errors or stoppage. However, the document is folded incorrectly, causing the envelope window to display the document header instead of the recipient’s address. The top and bottom edges of the document are folded over, creating a gate fold instead of a half fold.

Example:
Misfold

Cause

The first 3 inches of the material is getting folded over before the document goes into the folder.
