My elderly neighbour has a sticky label stuck behind the paper roller and I don't seem to be able to life up the front of the typewriter to be able to clear it.

Depending on the typewriter model, most all have release points located on either end of the roller bar. Locate these, push forward or backward, release roller bar and lift the bar out. This would be the preferred solution, as it would make removing the sticky note far easier. These release points will look like small levers and should have directional arrows visible to indicate which directions they should be pushed to release the bar. If you cannot remove the roller bar, I suggest standing over the typewriter and use a pair of tweezers to remove the sticky note. It may take some patience, and may tear, but eventually it should be able to be removed,even if it is bit by bit. Also, with each portion removed, turn the roller bar to make the remaining part of the note more visible. Good luck.

If you can remove the platen, roller, you may find a label stuck on the deflector. Remove the label from the deflector. Make sure the deflector is installed properly.

I have a TA Adler-Royal 315. It operates beautifully, and hopefully will continue to do so (fingers crossed). Someone used it recently when I was away from the office and managed to get a label stuck to...

Try this thke a piece of heavy stock, like a file folder and force it thru the paper path while turning the platen. This may push the label thru or at least flatten it out.

How do I take off a label that is stuck on the metal strip under the roller?


Trying to disassemble the typewriter to remove the platen (roller) will most likely be too difficult to do.
Try this instead. Pour some rubbing alcohol on a piece of paper and try feeding that into the typewriter
As the alcohol loosens the label then try pushing it out with a flexible piece of plastic like a credit card or even a piece of cardboard..

Good Luck

How do I take apart my Brother typewriter to remove a label stuck to the metal bar where the paper feeds in?

I wish I had one in front of me, but I don't. Brother used two ways of holding the Platen (big black roller in place. Open the top cover and look at the frame where the platen is held. You will likely see plastic clips holding the axial that runs through the platen (85% of brother machines have clips), or you will see that the axial runs directly through the frame. If you see clips just squeeze the tabs and lift up. Note which side has the gear, so that it is reinstalled the same way. If you don't have clips you will need to loosen the Allen screws holding the knob to the platen roller, and the roller will lift right out. If the label left any of the rollers sticky they must be completely cleaned before reassembly, Goo-Gone is a good product to remove gummy labels.

Best of luck, Ron

I got a label stuck on the roller of my ibm wheelwriter 30. the only way to remove the label completely will be to remove the roller. How do I remove the roller or is there any easier way to remove my...

While I haven't seen your model of machine in many moons, the roller was generally not difficult to remove once the plastic housing was removed.
If it appears to be a bigger job than I recall, you could take 1/4 - 1/2 sheet of plain paper, saturate it (not dripping) with naphtha (lighter fluid) and feed it into the machine to cover the label. Allow some time to soak, feed the paper out and wipe the residue of adhesive with a clean lint free rag several times, wetting it if necessary with a few drops of naphtha to complete the removal.
You might feed several clean sheets of paper through before using to ensure no residue or fluid has stayed behind.

Remove platen on Swintec 8011 typewriter

I can't remember which models have which features, but some Swintecs have pop out plantens, and some don't. If it is pop out, you will find a plastic V clip in the frame of the typewriter through which the platen shaft passes on both sides of the typewriter and platen. Pay close attention to which side the gear of the platen is situated before removing to make sure you put it back on the same side of the typewriter. Squeeze the V clips and pull the platen up and out. When re-installing, make sure the metal paper table is in correctly by aligning the fingers on each side into their mounting guides, or you will have paper jams, paper feed trouble, and other issues. You can clean the labels out with something that will not leave an oily residue on the paper table, paper feed rollers, or the platen. Re-install the platen by aligning the V clips to the frame on each side, and press them down until they snap into place.

Sticky label

I assume the label is stuck under the platen
the easiest way is to get a rag, wider than the label, dampen it with some solvent, and try to roll it in like a piece of paper. don't use too much solvent, or it will run off into the machine. be careful, it may melt the plastic.
to see if you have a good solvent, stick a label on something it won't hurt, put a little solvent on the label, wait a little bit and see if the label comes off easily.
if you're not careful, you can damage the machine.
or take the machine to a repair shop, the platen is not easy to remove

Need to clean the platen

IF you can't get the platen roller out, then what you can do is get a cleaner called " GOO GONE". Take a rag or paper towel, and pour some of the goo gone on the rag where the labels are located. IMPORTANT PART: You want enough Goo Gone on the rag so you can saturate the label. I have even CAREFULLY poured some Goo Gone right from the container onto the label.
Just don't go crazy with the Goo Gone.... You do not want to pour sooooo much onto the platen roller where it drips down it the frame of the machine and possibly onto the main board.
REMEMBER.... Just enough to saturate the label.

After the label is saturated.... WAIT AT LEAST 3 minutes. I usually wait closer to 5 minutes, and then you will notice that the label can be easily pulled away from the platen.
After all of the labels are removed, go over the entire platen with the Rag with Goo gone, and then go over it again with a clean dry rag.

I hope this works for you as well as it has worked for my customers.
Good luck.
Mac =)
