Margin Release should be near the top of the keyboard on the left or ride side of the keyboard. You may have a sticky margin lock bail or a spring loose or broken on the bail mechanism if the margin release doesn't work. Sometimes the linkage for the bail needs to be adjusted. If you are mechanically inclined, you can possibly follow it through, but if not, seek out a service tech.

If there is tension on the carriage when you push it to the right, the spring is not broke or the cord..then the problem would be in the escapement area..you would need a repairman to do this. if the carriage is loose, no tension then the spring is either broke or the cord is off or broke.
Either way not something easy....

SOURCE: Underwood no. 5 typewriter doesn't advance when hit keys

the cord is shaped much like a shoe lace, and these make great replacements, a spare clip can be fashioned out of a paper clip, it's not a precision part. the spring if broken can be replaced with any clock style spring, i bought a wind up kitchen timer at the dollar store (same for the shoe lace) and took the spring from that. for $2.14, got mine working good as new

Sometimes they had a carriage lock for transporting it. Check for a little lift up lever thingy at the base of the carriage on the bar that goes across from one side to the other. Or just check around for any little levers that hold the carriage in place.

The peice of my typewriter that is supposed to move the paper tothe left as you type doesnt move?


It's either in the carriage lock position, just check if it's locked in place.
The other reason may be that the return spring has broken. Easy to replace & is repairable sometimes.

Carriage lock on adler typewriter


Turn the T/W off, slide the carrier to the R., look for debris in the carrier area. Spray some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.
Move the carrier back and forth to be sure tghere isn't a bind or hitting something.

L.C. Smith & Bros. typewriter No. 5 Margin setting


Make sure the carriage lock switch isn't on (presuming it has one). A carriage lock switch prevents the carriage moving when in transit (say, inside its case). These switches are usually located on the right hand side of the carriage, slightly underneath.
