Smith Corona 240 DLE

The paper will not feed properly. After positioning a sheet in the slot, and turning on the machine, the paper begins feeding in a cocked angle to the vertical.

Can you help?

Pull the paper release lever and look under the platen as well as you can, to see if there are any forien objects. check if the feed rollers are all in place. the slots in the paper pan under the platen should have rollers in them

Smith Corona XD6600 wont advance paper. No debris in the way, platen switch is in correct position.


You may have bad feed rollers, or they may not be engaging the platen as they should for one reason or another. A common cause for this is if the paper tray is not installed correctly. If you can remove the platen, check that the guide fingers on the paper pan are situated on the rests made for them. Also make sure the platen is snapped in place all the way if this is the snap in kind. Hope this helps.

Remove stuck label


THIS IS COMMON FAULT WITH PEOPLE WHO USE LABELS ON TYPEWRITERS. U MUST NEVER TURN THEM BACKWARDS OR U WILL GET ONE STUCK IN MACHINE. THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT OUT IS TO REMOVE PLATEN AND CLEAN THE JAMMED LABEL FROM THE FEED. AND ON SMITH CORONA MACHINES THIS IS NOT EASY TO DO ONESELF.

Smith Corona 235 DLE doesn't advance


Does the platen move or does the paper not advance? Check the paper release lever to make sure the feed wheels are snapped in place. If the platen does not move something in the paper feed motor area.

This usually indicates no ribbon. Check to be sure the ribbon is properly installed or put a new ribbon in.
