Question about Smith Corona Wordsmith 100 Typewriter

1 Answer

Is there a Smith Corona Repair shop in Wetchester County New York?

Typewriter turns on and boots but that is it. Wheel does not return to the left. It just stays to the right. Obviously cannot do anything. Thank you.

SOURCE: how do i reset the wheel on a smith corona sl460

The typewriter has a spring at one spool to keep the correction ribbon taut. If that spring is broken or out of place, the ribbon will always get in the way of the wheel.
If both ribbons are correctly set tight between the wheel and the paper, the typewriter will reset the wheel at power-on.
Some models reset the wheel every time you close the cover. You can see and hear it if it does.

Spell-Rite 11 SD300 - Hi, my typewriter will not stay on. From the instructions, I believe there is a battery. I cannot find anyone to fix it. Can you help? Thank you. Kathy Smith

Here is the contact information for Smith Corona. Theye aren't many typewriter repair shops left so, you'll probably have to either send it in for factory service, have someone who is good at repairing electro-mechanical equipment or replace it.

My typewriter smith corona 2000 is at a repair shop now cost to fix $440.00 i feel this is too much. Shop claims motor; paper advance bar; keyboard cover; print wheel needs replaced

I would recommend you purchase a new machine from a local office depot type store. For about $135 you can get a new Brother typewriter. I think that the Model above the cheapest one is the best value, considering the features and some internal design benefits.

Need owners manual: Smith Corona SL500 Model 5A, electric typewriter. Where can one find this? Are there any that can be down loaded? Does Smith Corona even exist anymore? Thanks,

I have been unable to find a site where you can download a Smith Corona typewriter manual. However, you can try going to Will Repair Service. They carry manuals of every Smith Corona typewriter ever made, and you should be able to find a manual for your particular typewriter there. I find them to be a very helpful and trustworthy typewriter shop.


Best of luck to you! :-)
