Olivetti Lettera 32 Carraige Jammed to the left.

Nope, that didn't do it, but thanks a lot anyway. I think I know the one you mean. Do you mean the thing on some typewriters that holds the carriage in the middle so it doesn't move when being transported?
Thanks again anyhow.

It sounds like the cord under the carriage has wrapped itself round the side of the small round spring drum thereby locking the carriage. Should take a tech about 20mins to fix.

Under the moving carriage and rubber cylinder, there is a little flexible wire wrapping on a cylindric box with a spring inside, in the fix part of the machine.
Its function is to move the carriagage step by step or to a tab, or at the end of the run, with the force of the spring, charged by your manual movement of the left hand, when the bell make its sound.

Often the wire broke when it's very old, or fall out of the cylindric path, or in the worst case the spring reach the end of its life.

To be honest I doesn't understand very well your question, but I send you anyway a suggestion! Maybe we will lucky.
Send me an information about the evolution.

Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter - a few problems!


Problem 1 means the the spring on the springdrum has unwound. It is a job winding it and hooking the carriage cord back up. Might want to have a pro do this one.
Prob 2..some lettera 32's had preset tabs every 10 spaces. Also you can type by a tab..it is not a margin..it just stops the carriage when they are set.

Olivetti Lettera 32 Typewriter Carriage Stuck Jammed Locked Up rigidly all the way to left.


There might be a little tab below the carriage wheel on the left of the machine. You should be able to move it up or down, and release the mechanism.

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.
