Question about Smith Corona Refurbished Super Sterling Porable, Electric Typewriter, Case, W/wa

1 Answer

I have a Sterling Cartridge Smith-Corona typewriter and it shakes really bad when I turn the on switch, what is the problem?

I just acquired this from my neighbor and it seems to be in good shape, but I'm a little confused by how to change the cartridge and why it shakes and makes a loud noise when turned on. Can anyone help with this?

It could be the machine is trying to return but is not successful. Help the carriage by hand up against the left margin, and see if this helps. Sometimes the centrifugal clutches on the motor need replaced, and sometimes the belts can cause this. Either way, you will probably not be able to fix it yourself.

You might check the outlet to make sure there is 120V. Otherwise there is a good chance the power supply has burned out. Also the cover has to be down, and there has to be a ribbon mounted properly for this machine to work.

SOURCE: where can i get a manual for my smith-corona typewriter?

Can you give us any help in identifying the machine? Is it manual or electric, for example?
There's a downloadable and printable manual for the Smith-Corona Standard Portable here.
Bear in mind that if this is an old typewriter then there is a very good chance that no one has bothered to rewrite the manual since the invention of the internet. In such cases the best you can expect is a scan of an old paper manual.
