Hermes 3000 tab stuck in middle.

I have a Hermes 3000 typewriter. Whenever I am typing on it, it seems to stop halfway through the page, as if it has reached the end of the page, and will lock the typebar so that I can no longer type. The only way to go on is to press the margin release button, but I don't want to have to press that every time I want to continue through with my page. Please help.

After you press the margin release key, space to the desired R. margin location, press the R. MAR key.

How do I releaseor move the right margin on a Hermes 3000


You either squeeze the margin stops or push them down, they may be stuck so a little light machine oil on the margin rails should move them.

I have a Hermes 3000 typewriter. Once I set the left margin, it's not sitting there. It moves fast to the right margin. I am not able to type a single word because of this. Is the mainspring is bad? ...


The mainspring is not bad or the carriage would not move that way. It sounds like and escapement problem either from the carriage release sticking, the escapement itself needing adj. which you probably cannot do, the escapement rack is bent or maladjusted, or the tab function is sticking or maladjusted. Check the carriage release levers to see if they are sticking. Also make sure the tab function is knocking off so the carriage is not in constant tab mode. Hope this helps.

Hermes 3000 carriage is "locked."


I think there's a lock there in the spacing. Mine can be locked by pulling the spacing lever far upward. Just set your spacing and I think it will unlock.

Your typewriter may just need some lubrication. using a 3 in 1 house hold oil, add a few drops to each letter arm at the bottom where it connects.If possible,use a compressed air source to blow out the entire unit (wear saftey glasses of course), the lubricate the moving key areas. This is the best case fix, worst case would be parts need replacement.

On the top row there should be 2 keys one + one - these are the set and clear tab keys. Theone with the 2 arrows is the margin release key there should also be a key that says tab that will move you rfom tab to tab.

I have an old Hermes 3000. I was in the middle of typing away and the machine was working perfectly. Then all of sudden the carriage will no long stop. It just slides directly to the right margin and stops...


It might be that you tab key is engaged which would do this. also try gently moving the carriage to a point, pressing the space bar and then releasing the carriage. It might be the escapement..
Hope this works!
