Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 100 Typewriter
We can align & get on but it will not stay on. There is a little clip on side, looks like it is suppose to lock it on, but it doesn't hold. everytime you type it pops off.
CHANGING Changing The Ribbon Cassette 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) Hold the ribbon cassette on both sides and lift up the front portion (where the ribbon is exposed) to remove the cassette. 3) To insert a new cassette, place the back end of the cassette on the cassette holder on the carrier and gently press down on the front of the cassette unit it clicks into place. 4) Turn the ribbon feed knob counter-clockwise again to take up any slack in the ribbon. 5) Presss the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
Changing The Print Wheel 1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS key. 2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and lift out the daisy wheel. 3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen. 4) Push the lever back into position. 5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
It appears as though you have something that is preventing the print wheel from being locked in place by the release lever. It should make a snapping or similar noise when it is locked down.

Hello....I wrote this for those with bread pan problems....be sure to read the part about how to restore the "spring" of your bread pan clips...
Bread pan removal:
I am assuming you have the type of bread machine that has
the little metal spring clips inside the oven compartment. Before inserting the pan always check on the
bottom of the pan (underneath) to see how the impeller "T" is aligned and turn
it with your fingers or turne the paddle with your fingers so the "T" will fit
into the gaps of the impeller in the bottom of the oven. Once you have aligned them then place the
pan in the oven and "pop" push the pan in place so the spring clips grab the
matching clips on the sides of the pan.
Also look to see if your pan has the word "front" stenciled in the lip
edge of the pan. If so, be sure that edge is towards the front of
the machine. If your pan still won't pop into place when you
push down your spring clips may need to be gently pulled out because they can
become "slack" over time. Take the pan
out and reach in and pull each spring clip up until you start to feel it bend a
little and bend them out. Pop your pan into place and if the clips don's start
to grab your pan repeat the process of bending the clips out and repeat that
until they do. Summary:
make sure if your pan is marked "front" that it is aligned
make sure the paddle and the T underneath the pan aren't in
conflict with the matching drive impeller in the bottom of the oven. Just turn the paddle so they are opposite of
each other and can engage
Restore the "springiness" to your clips by bending them out
with your fingers. Be careful though because the spring edges are fine edges so
get underneath them when you pull up
