Under each key there is a contact pad, they get old and the foam falls apart. They can be fairly easily replkaced the pads are 1.50 apiece.
Befor you do anything realize that the ribbons are no longer made.

    Hi ****,

  • sengo939 Jan 18, 2013

    As you probably guessed, I'm trying to get one of the old typewriters at work to work for me (I asked the question for the IBM wheelwriter). I would replace the pad for the space bar, but I cannot lift the space bar out. Any suggestions? As to the ribbons, we have plenty of them from the days when everyone used a typewriter instead of computer keyboards. Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: space bar

If the bar works when you hit right in the middle try reinstalling the bar the metal rod must go under the tabs on the keyboard, if it won't at all you probably need a keyboard.

SOURCE: space bar key doesn't work

If the keys do nothing at all you probably need a keyboard, if they do something but not what you want try a little WD40 on the silver shaft that guides the carrier. If it's the KB contact Geo. Beyers Co.

Carriage does not advance when pressing the space bar or pressing a key. Does advance when depressing tab.


If you press a key does it type or try to correct? The escapement mechanism that allows it to move from space to space may be sticking and causing your problem. That mechanism just may need a flushing and lubrication. You will see a shaft that runs through the carriage. Try to turn it top to rear until it stops. if you hear a click then it has been turned the right amount. If it doesn't turn, then it is as far as it goes. Try hitting the spacebar and see if the carriage moves. If it moves, hit any key and see if it moves. if it moves, hit another key. If it doesn't move then your escapement mechanism needs to either be flushed and lubed or adjusted.

Space bar on sylectric 2 ibm typewriter is not moving the type


There are a few things that can cause your spacebar to not move the carrier. Do you hear any sound when you press on the bar? There are adjustment that may need to be made to the machine or perhaps there is something sticking in the mechanism. Unfortunately you mey not be able to fix this yourself as these machines need a technician to properly repair and service the machine.

Have you tried oiling it w/3-n-1 oil? Often the sticking problem is nothing more than it needs lubrication.

Space bar will not work.


It's probably just dirty and gunked up. Clean it with Q-tips and a bit of rubbing alcohol.

Space bar keeps going but not pressed


might be dirty, get a can of air, from like home depot, office max, etc. turn off laptop, take out battery, turn upside down and blow the air underneath the spacebar, this should fix your problem. If not you need a new space bar.

For me, I popped of the space bar, cleaned the junk underneath and fidgeted with the plastic push-button and all was better. Thanks for the suggestion!
