If you know how to remove the cabinet and dust covers spray every moving part with WD40 especially the cams and parts under the R. dust cover.

The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.

Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

Put a shot of WD40 on both sides of the silver shaft that the carroer slides on. If that doesn't do it put some on the carier motor bearings. The front one can be reached from inside of the T/W the rear one yuo will have to remove the case of fish the straw thru it. The motor is located on the R. rear corner.

First try a little shot of WD40 on both sides of the silver shaft that the carrier slides on. If that doesn't do it you will have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located in the R. rear corner under the case.

Turn the T/W off and slide the carrier back and forth. If it goes to the left then you have the L. margin set at 80.

Return to the margin, press and release the margin release key, backspace to the desired location, press the L. margin key.

My guess would be that the left and right margins are set at the same place. Try resetting the right margin and see if that's the problem. I used to experience this a lot with kids playing with the typewriter.
