If cleaning and oiling the shaft doesn't work, the carrier motor is probably bad. Is there any noise when you hit return?

Try wiping the large bar that runs left to right under the carrier with a cloth wet with a light oil and then move the carrier by hand to see if it will free up. Be sure the typewriter is turned off.

Sorry, never use WD40 as a lubricant. It's a rust inhibitor and not a good lubricant. A light oil like 3 in one oil is the way to go. If you've already cleaned the rail and it still sticks you've probably got a cracked drive gear.

If you did all those things and you know to remove the case put a few drops of WD40 on the bearings of the carrier motor in the left rear of the T/W.

Try cleaning the sensor that lays behind the printwheel that tells the machine the wheel is in the home position, the sensor is in the print carrier. take wheel out and look down and you will see the sensor, clean it off with clean cloth. also put some white out on the top of the printwheel and see if it stops at the same place every time when you turn on and off.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
