Where is the lever that releases the carriage on the olivetti 32


There is a chrome lever on the right side of the carriage on top that should manually release the carriage by pushing down on it. If this works but there is no spring tension pulling the carriage to the left, then the drawband is probably broken. If pushing the lever down doesn't work then eithor the mechanism is broken or locked up or there is a carriage lock that need to be released. If there is a carriage lock it would be located under the carriage on the left or right side. It would be a small chrome lever sticking out the side.

Hi there, I have a Brother KH950i knitting machine and the carriage has jammed. The carriage release button is also jammed. Do you know if there is another way to release the carriage from the tracks? ...


There is no other way: try to loosen needle by needle. Perhaps you may damage one.

When you have releases the carriage oil the release button. ITry if the button goes smoothly.

Resetting the margins on a manual typewriter.


I can't be for sure if these are auto set margins, but it sounds like they might be. If they are, first move the carriage as far to the right as you can. Hold the Left Margin Set (not Margin Release) lever as you move the carriage all the way to the left. Release the Margin Set Button or Lever. Now hold the Right Margin Set Button or Lever (not the Margin Release), and move the carriage all the way to the right while holding the Margin Set. Once the carriage is all the way to the right, release the Margin Set. Move the carriage to the place you want to set your left margin. Hit the Left Margin Set and then release. Move the carriage to where you want to set the right margin. Hit the Right Margin Set and release it. It gets confusing, but Margin Release does not set margins. Its sole purpose is only to bypass the margins. Hope this helps.

Carriage return problem


If it returns with the express key the latching mech. on the rt. side is probably gummy. Take off the case, get some WD40 and spray the mechinism that latches the ret on the rt. side below the platen.

Can't move cassette carriage.


hello savvychris

If you can not get to the carriage motor, can you get to the one of the gears attached to the motor or the carriage gear itself. either of these should allow you to release the carriage.

Can you post some pictures of the carriage, this includes front, top, and side shots? what I am looking for is a way to advance the main motor forwards and thus release the carriage locking system.

If possible, if you have the technical documentation, send me a copy of it, I might be able to figure out what is going on for them.

Thank you,
