I second using more expensive paper.

Many, like 30 years ago I had a nice Epson ink-jet (~$500!). After some years of light use, the feeding started to fail. I bought a cleaning kit which included a solvent-like liquid that put back some tackiness/removed glaze from the roller. Things were much improved. However, I doubt your printer is old enough to need this treatment.

I literally put the thing in the trash because the cartridges failed so often when I was travelling a lot and there were long periods of non-use.

Now I have an HP laser CP1525nw, which is ok except when you have to reestablish a WiFi connection.

I recently started using the manual duplex feature and was having many failures. I switched from low-tier paper to Hammermill 20 and 24 # paper, which claims almost 0% jams and it has not had a single failure. With the 24#, when you print a 15 sheet document, you do feel like you're holding an entire tree in your hand. The 20# has worked just as well.
