SOURCE: Typewriter won't return carriage

If cleaning and oiling the shaft doesn't work, the carrier motor is probably bad. Is there any noise when you hit return?

Lo and behold, some light oil on the stainless bars solved the problem.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: IBM Selectric II-return goes past the margin stop

The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.

My imperial 66 typewriter's carriage return has stopped working. An elastic band has come unclipped but I don't know where to attach it. Does anyone know where it goes? Thanks.


One end attaches to the R. end of the carriege usually a screw or a metal tab. The other to the spring loaded drum that drives it.
