As long as it is adhesive sticky problem, use any oil base product or WD40 to clean it off than wipe down with a clean cloth will do. Home

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

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.

Sticky i key

Sticky isn't a really good description but i'll guess that you mean that you have to press it hard.
Under each key is a foam pad that makes contact. The foam gets old and crumbles, the pads can be replaced but generally not by the user.

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

Be sure you have a dry L/O tape (Gen. Ribbon t 355 or equiv.) if you have a sticky L/O tape it will give you all kinds of trouble.
