Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I recently bought a Sears electric typewriter from a thrift store, I don't know the make but the model number is 161. 53201. Everything seems to work fine and it turns on, but when I hit the keys nothing happens the hammers don't even move. Does anyone know if I can fix this problem myself or If I'll have to get it repaired? If it must be repaired about how much will it cost?

Remove the case ... look for a motor ... look for a drive belt ... my guess (I am not familiar with this particular model) is the drive belt is missing or the motor cant start.

Good luck with your project and thanks for your quesiton.

I lost the part you push the fruit and veggies down with. where can I get a replacement

Look for the model number of your juicer and the make (like ge juiceman etc) and type that and the word parts into goggle Maybe you can find the manufacturers and ask if they sell parts. if you cannot find the model number. try looking at juicers art amzon or ebay to see if you see your juicer..try that model number and look at the pusher to see i you think it will fit but having the real model number is better as you may think you have the right juicer and it is not the same.

I recently bought that part for my juicer on amazon and cost me $20. a week later I found the exact same juicer including the part I just bought for $20 so I bought in for both parts and if I want to use it upstairs as well as downstairs as juicing a lot for aggressive cancer.

So you might see it at a thrift store. would not be the right sixe or as good but maybe you can find a food processor at a thrift store and use that pusher. the often have juicer for sale at thrit stores ranging from $6 to about $20..test it by plugging it in and seeing if it works or any smoke comes out. This might be cheaper than finding as replacement plunger.

Alas! My Brother GX 6750 got a new ribbon and won't produce words


Common problem: Ribbon is old or is mis-threaded.

Another problem is the distance fom the wheel to the platten or the setting of the hammer. Some have setting for which to use forms rather than plain paper. The hammer is set back for this and there is an adjuster lever either in the vicinity of the hammer or for platten spacing.

How to type in capital letters on facit typewriter?


You did not specify if it was a manual or electric or the model, so assuming it is a standard manual or electric machine, push down on the shift key and hold it, then type your letter or letters. If you are typing everything in caps, press the shift lock key.
