My typewriter hums but nothing happens...seems like the motor is jammed...


The humming is probably the motor turning but the drive belt may be broken. You would need a qualified technician to replace the belt if necessary.

Selectric II Pitch-shift lever won't change from 12 tom 10


If you haven't changed the pitch for a long time the lubricants dry up, if you have some WD40 spray it in the slot inthe margin bar where the L. & R. margin levers ride. Give it a few minites to work.

IBM Selectric II typewriter stuck in correcting position


If you know how to remove the right dust cover (black inside the T/W below the carrier) next to the R. side frame is the correction set up mech. spray some WD40 on the arms especially where they pivot, they should free up.

Move the grey lever on the R. side of the carrier to the R. and remove correction tape, try the machine, if it seems to work OK install a new correction tape.

IBM Selectric II


Yes. From not being used in so long It needs a chemical cleaning or washout and lubrication. It may need a part or two also. Everything is gummed up. I have been repairing selectrics for 35 years. Lawrence
