Question about Brother EM-530 Typewriter

Where do I go to order a platen knob for my brother EM-530 that has cracked and doesn't want to stay on?

My platen knob has cracked and when I manually roll it up or down, it falls off. I need to locate someplace where I can order a new one.

You have to position the carrier to where you want the margin using the space bar or backspace key. Once you get to the desired position you must press either the left or right margin button depending on which one you want to set. You may have to use the code button together with the margin button.

SOURCE: how do i change font on brother EM -530 typewriter

This typewriter uses a "printwheel" In order to change tye typestyle (font) you must change (purchase) a different printwheel. To change the printwheel, pull the lever on the RH side of th print hammer towards the front of the machine and lift the clear plastic cartridge UP. . Contact Brother International for a printwheel or Yellow pages for a local dealer.

Hi, the spool or round handle that one turns to move the paper up or down manually has been stripped by other users of our typewriter. When we turn it, it does grasp the gear to turn the platen. Hope I...


I don't have one of these to look at right now but, many models were secured with an Alan screw (or two) through the plastic, locking the knob to the platen shaft. If your has Alan screws, tighten them. I have seen knobs that cracked and if that's the case, your best bet would be epoxy.Best of luck,RonIf this helps you, PLEASE log back on to this webpage and leave comment. It?s nice to know that I am helping someone and not just wasting my time.

Brother EM530 Knobs


Brother is a problem. There aren’t many “Brother Authorized” service centers (in fact the one I worked for is now out of business) and only “Brother Authorized” repair centers can buy the parts from Brother. If you can’t find an ”Authorized repair center” in your area, I might be able to help, if you send me you city/state I might be able to locate a service center but they might not want to sell you just the part, The policy when I was working at a Brother Authorized service center, was we could not sell parts and could only sell parts that we install (during a repair).
