SOURCE: Changing typewriter ribbon in the IBM Selectric

You haven't told what model of Selectric. If it is a selectric II or III, there is an orange lever on the carrier that you must pull to one side. The correction tape has a silver lever next to the take-up spool that you must pull outward.

Your on/off switch may be bad but it sounds like your motor needs to be flushed, lubed, and possibly have a bushing installed.
