I have a Hermes 3000 typewriter. Once I set the left margin, it's not sitting there. It moves fast to the right margin. I am not able to type a single word because of this. Is the mainspring is bad? ...


The mainspring is not bad or the carriage would not move that way. It sounds like and escapement problem either from the carriage release sticking, the escapement itself needing adj. which you probably cannot do, the escapement rack is bent or maladjusted, or the tab function is sticking or maladjusted. Check the carriage release levers to see if they are sticking. Also make sure the tab function is knocking off so the carriage is not in constant tab mode. Hope this helps.

How do i release the tab position?


At each tab stop, press the "tab release" button. Then tab to the next tab position and do the same. OR

You can put the machine in "service mode" which will erase all tab stops and reset your margins to their default positions. Easily done by turning the typewriter OFF. Then while off, press and hold "mar rel" (margin release) key on upper left side of keyboard. While holding it down and keeping it down, turn the typewriter ON. Then take your finger off the Margin Release key. The typewriter will start typing all by itself. Turn the typewriter off, then on. That will reset everything. All tab stops will be erased and margins reset to their defaults.

Hi, I need to know how to set the tabs on my Hermes Baby typewriter and how to tab to the set place. No manual, and it has me floored. Has a key on the top left row with two arrows on it, each pointing in...


On the top row there should be 2 keys one + one - these are the set and clear tab keys. Theone with the 2 arrows is the margin release key there should also be a key that says tab that will move you rfom tab to tab.

Tab to the R. stopping place press don't hold the margin release key space to the locationyou want the R. margin press R. margin key.
If this dosen't work turn off the machine and check to be sure the carrier will move back and forth. Put a few drops of WD40 on the silver shaft the guides the carrier.
