Paper not feeding

Paper can easily be slid around the rubber platen. Is there a paper release that I do not know about. Of course in this condition the typewriter can not catch or feed the paper for even the demo test.

Brother M-100 Won't Grip Paper

Best way is to remove the top cover, with out taking the Platen(large rubber roller) that the paper goes around out look to the rear there is a spring that breaks that puts pressure on a pan with feed rollers in it , replace spring or at least put a new hook in it or if you are lucky and it is not broke I could just be unhooked. Also clean all those rollers that are rubber with something nail polish remover. Do not touch plastic with this cleaner, it may melt plastic.

If you can remove the platen, roller, you may find a label stuck on the deflector. Remove the label from the deflector. Make sure the deflector is installed properly.

Paper feeder - roller is not grabbing the paper to feed into machine.

First check if the paper release lever is pulled, thus releasing the tension on the rollers. If this is alright, then there is a real possibility that you have a label or something stuck on the feed rollers or in the paper pan. If you can remove the platen, then you can remove the gunk, if not, then you will probably need to get someone to service the machine for you. Digging in behind there can sometimes solve the problem, but it can also sometimes create other problems. Hope this helps.

We have a brothers GX-6750 that wont feed paper, wheel just spins.

If the Platen is moving the paper release lever is in the wrong position, if the platen isn't moving the paper feed motor will have to be replaced.

The IBM Wheelwriter 1000 won't grab the paper I put into it!

There are a few possibilities.
first be sure the paper release lever on the top left side is to the rear, if it is push firmly down on the platen (blacl rubber roller) they do work themselves out. If the platen isn't turning you may have a board problem.

Smith Corona 235 DLE doesn't advance

Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.

pull the paper release lever and look under the platen as well as you can, to see if there are any forien objects. check if the feed rollers are all in place. the slots in the paper pan under the platen should have rollers in them
