Hello

take Q-tip cotton , apply small portion on hammer letter keys and carriage -- moving parts only

dip and smear into vasaline, wipe off excess. apply to the keys sticking or to carriage return key . this is amechanical sticking , so apply to where the part (carriage or moving part) applies. Also, take a plain paper , keep tapping the key and then return key carriage , until sticking stops and until the vasaline dissipates . repeat the typing for about 1-2 mintes until excess vasaline is no longer present on paper after typing.

repeat this process anytime the keys stick

hpe this helps

Olivetti Lettera 22 Typewriter carriage does not move


There are two ways to deal with that (before taking you olivetti to an authorized dealer):
  1. There's a lock key under the carriage. Have you unlocked it?
  2. The carriage might have been locked by a piece of paper or something else. Release it (pull it) and clean its passage (there is a button you press in order to release it - proceed with care).

Have a olivetti 1000S typewriter, put in a new cartridge but when I type no printing appears on paper, any ideas


Put a multi part form in it, if it prints on the copies then you have a ribbon issue. If so be sure the ribbon is installed properly and that it isn't twisted (the dull side should face the paper) Try it without the Lift off they sometimes steal the impression.

Keys sticking. The keys at both ends are sticking or won't go all the way up and strike the paper.


Try trickling some White Spirit into the typebar slots and working the keys repeatedly.

A few keys are sticking on my Olivetti. They click up, hardly hit, and then dont return to their proper place. I'd appreciate it if someone could offer some advise...or name a place in Gainesville Florida...


Needs a good cleaning and lubrication. I charge $ 75.00 to make it clean as new. You can try to simply lubbicate it yourself. Just drop 1 drop of oil into each typebar guide. Hit each key a few times.
My number is 727-773-8973 in Largo, Florida

Manual Typewriter Carriage Movement Problem


Without knowing the make it's hard, but it could be that some of the roller bearings used to make the carriage run smoothly have come out of the retainers and dropped from the machine. If as you say there is a lot of slop in the inner carriage it's a fair bet that's your problem
