Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 100 Typewriter
I have a Smith Corona Electra CT typewriter. when i press the return key, it returns the carriage fine to the next line and to the beginning margin, but it's as if the thing that's supposed to hold it there is not working, so it quickly slides back to the end of the line and rings the bell. This is very annoying as it renders my typewriter pretty useless until i can fix the problem.
any and all help appreciated. thanks.
The tab button may be stuck or the carriage release lever is stuck or a broken escapement.

On the right hand side of the roller, there are two levers you can pull forward. That should fix it.
