Question about Brother ML-100 Typewriter

1 Answer

Striker not working?

Did you figure out what was wrong? I have a Brother ML100 doing the same thing. But my daisy wheel turns, and the carriage moves with each key stroke, as well as returns. It is just the hammer does not move anymore.

    Thanks for answering. Almost threw typewriter away. But will now dig further, based on your information, and check this. It was full of the "holes" from the auto feed paper they (secretaries) run through it. I am the maintenance man at a saw mill, and it came from the ladies in the front office. I will try your suggestions tomorrow, and be sure to let you know what I find. Yes, they still ask me if I could fix it or not? Thanks again.

Cam system on most brothers cause this to strike, make sure it is free andnot binding, also the solinoid underneath the printer comes off. Look for parts in the bottom of the machine. It is repair able.

My typewriter does not print. I do not have a manual or instructions for this typewriter. Is there a code I will need to insert in order for it to print...delayed or otherwise? Thank you!


Check that the daisy wheel is properly installed and if the ribbon has been used up. Try pressing and holding CODE and then press Reset. (This needs to be done after the daisy wheel, correction tape or ribbon is replaced.)

The daisy wheel has a protruding ear that should be on the top right. To remove, open the cover, pull the lever towards you and lift the wheel by that ear. To reinsert, insert the wheel in the slot and press down gently. Then slide the lever forward to lock the wheel in place. Then close the cover and reset the carrier (CODE+Reset). Make sure that the ear is to the top right when you reinstall the daisy wheel.

The amount of ribbon left can be determined by looking through the viewing hole on the right hand side of the cassette when the cover is open.

The manual is available here: http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PGID=10&R3ModelID=ML100 as a PDF.

I hope this helps.

How can I get printer ribbons for this Brother ML 100 typewriter? Can you give me the code #?


The Brother ML100 uses the BRT 1030. There are several supplies available like the lift off tape, the daisy wheel and of course the printing cassette.

Striker Sticking When Erasing. Brother ML100 Typewriter


Sounds like the gears you cleaned may be dry and sticking, spray a little WD40. or that gear on the right side is still out of time. I think there is a spring clutch in the gear train which may be bad. One secret to repairs is to perform the same actions that you want the typewriter to do by hand and watch closely. You may see something not movving, or moving slow that under power you won't see.

Striker Not Working. New Problem, now.


One very important thing with Brothers typewriter, If the keyboard is not locked in place under the catches, it will not complete the home cycle. In other words when the carriage returns to the left it will cycle and then beep usually continually. The reason the carriage stop time switch is attaced to the keyboard not the side frame. You might look at that....Could be other problems too. keep in touch

The Brother portable typewriters are pure junk. No longer suported by Brother. Next time spend a little more money and purchase a Nakajima typewriter.

Brother ML100 Typewriter:All of the sudden, it just won't type. It seems the 'hammer' doesn't hit the daisywheel. We've replaced the daisywheel, corrective tape, ribbon and still it goes through the...


Ok,there could be two possibilities ,1, The daisy wheel may not be seated in properly. Of course I assume that the print side of the daisy wheel is facing the platen and that when the typewriter is switched on the print unit makes its customary re-setting motion and that the daisy wheel spins around at the same time. if this does not happen make sure that the lock-in lever for the daisy wheel is pushed home.. I am sure that you do all these elementary things so the only other possibility is the the hammer seleniod is not fully functioning and would have to be re-placed....Good luck!
