Chemical attacks are prevented in a case where half-wave control is performed on a halogen lamp heater (186). A fixing device including a fixing roller (183), a pressure roller (184) pressed against the fixing roller (183), and halogen lamp heaters (186 to 188) that heat the fixing roller (183) includes: a temperature detecting unit (185) that detects the temperature of the fixing roller (183); and a control unit (10) that performs half-wave control on the halogen lamp heater (186) by calculating an output Duty in accordance with the temperature detected by the temperature detecting unit (185) and performing energization or de-energization for each half-wave of an AC waveform in accordance with the output Duty, and performs switch on/off control on the other halogen lamp heaters (187 and 188). The reference voltage of the halogen lamp heater (186) is lower than the reference voltage of the halogen lamp heaters (187 and 188), the reference voltages being set in accordance with the densities of the contained halogen gases.


In a case where conveyance abnormality of a sheet has occurred on a conveyance passage in course of execution of a print job which uses sheets included in a sheet set including a plurality of sheets with sequentiality stored in a first sheet feed tray (161) and discharges a sheet having been subjected to image formation to a first discharge section of the plurality of discharge sections (290, 390, 491, 492) conveyance of a causal sheet having caused the conveyance abnormality is stopped, and sheets having been being conveyed on the conveyance passage on an upstream side than the causal sheet are discharged to other discharge section other than the first discharge section. Thereafter, continuously, sheets located before a sheet to be fed first at a time of performing recovery printing after elimination of conveyance abnormality, are fed from the first sheet feed tray, and discharged the sheets to the other discharge section.
