The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.
Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.
The trouble is probably the silver shaft that the carrier slides on is gummed up. Try a little WD40 on the shaft, if that dosen't work the carrier motor in the L. rear corner may need lubricated, WD40 will do that too.
Return to the L. margin, touch the mar rel key top key on L. of the keyboard, backspace to location where you want the L. margin, touch the L. mar key. Put some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.
Turn off T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth freely, if so try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine this will reset to defalt settings. CAUTION THIS WILL ALSO CLEAR YOUR MEMORY!! If the carrier is hard to move a little light oil on the shaft it slides on may cure the problem.
