Question about Olympia Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

My olympia splendid 33 typewriter allows me to type until it reaches the half-way point on the page and then it stalls. I'm not sure if there is a 'lock' button/switch, or if a spring has come loose. Any suggestions? Hope this isn't too vague.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.

Check the pitch slide switch it should be in 10 or 12 not PS. Slide it up & down a few times they do get dirty.

Letter bunch up when typing

Try a little WD40 on the silver shaft the carrier slides on, look for debris in the area below the carrier, turn it off and slide the carrier by hand feeling for anything binding.
