Canon printer - don't see model name

I have an inexpensive Canon B&W laser printer.  I've had it working in my Windows 10 PC, but now it does not show up in Windows Device Manager.  I went to the Canon support website to see if I could download drivers, but it wants a model name/number.  So does the phone support.  There's no name on the top or the front of the printer; there's a stuck-on label on the back with the character string "F173200" and what would appear to be a serial number.  I don't see "Pixma" or "ImageClass" or anything like that anywhere.  I know I didn't consciously uninstall the printer in Windows, and I can't imagine why it would suddenly not be known to Windows.  Can anyone help?

Is there anything on the bottom of the printer? Can a few pictures of the printer be posted for us to inspect? Does the cartridge have any sort of identifying codes on it? 🤔

Thanks... it was on the bottom:  MF113w.  Driver is downloading now.

Thank you for the update. Hope the new download works out well. 🙂
