Question about Olivetti Lettera 25 Typewriter
The space bar on our Olivetti ET 2500 has stopped working. Also, the carriage will no longer return. Both problems developed simultaneously. In recent months, there were occasions when a character would not type and a beep sounded; turning the unit off then back on would resolve this. The beep now sounds when trying to space or return, but the individual letters/characters seem to be okay. The past fix of turning it off and on has had no effect.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: carriage release
try jiggling the carraige around a bit and then try using that lever thats on the right side of the carraige. you might even try both at once to see what frees it up. i had the same problem and it worked for me. That's the right tab, it may be in a jammed position so it wont open properly.

THERE IS A CARRIAGE LOCK ON THE MACHINE IF I REMEMBER RIGHT IT'S SO THE CARRIAGE DOSENT MOVE WHEN IT IN THE CARRING CASE. LOOK ON THE LEFT AND RIGHT END OF THE CARRIAGE JUST BELOW THE PLATEN KNOBS OR IT MAYBE A LEVER ON THE SIDE OF THE KEYBOARD

If it skips at the same place or skips every 10 or 12 spaces all the time it is a broken tooth on the escapement wheel or rack. It could be in typing you are lingering on the key causing it to spring back a little ans space over.
