My ML-2851ND is Making a Very Loud Grinding Noise When it Prints

I have a Samsung ml-2851nd printer at home for over 6 months. i use for my office paper work and few other home based works. The printer was up and running until last night when its started making strange grinding noise while printing. I restarted the printer and even checked for any kind of paper jam but I could not find anything. Can anyone here tell me what the problem is and how can I stop this loud grinding noise?
