Brother Correctronic 360 Word Processing Typewriter, how to remove case to clean keyboard contacts
I have a Brother 360 Correctronic Word Processing Typewriter that probably needs a good cleaning of the keyboard. I have a problem with the space bar not functioning on all taps as well as the other keys occasionally. I am quite sure it needs a good cleaning of the contacts. I was wondering if anyone can help with instructions for removing the case to get to the keyboard apparatus and contacts. I have very thoroughly used compressed air already and it helped but I would like to actually get to the keyboard itself to clean the contacts. I cannot figure out how to remove the case, or get to the removal of the keyboard segment, etc. Thanks in advance for any help. KTM

Open top cover, small correction tape orange or yellow lift off is kind of tricky, left side goes on small spool holder feeding off the top and going around front of print wheel. by the way relaase the printwheel so it pivots back toward you, eaiser to see, correct tape goes in front of wheel and pivots very similar to left side. Correction tape has good side and bad side good side a matte finish should face away from you, this is the correction. Regular riboon just lifts up reom the front and snaps back in place. two little plastic tabs on back of ribbon case fits in two little holes in carrier. Hop this helps real hard to describe.just works...
the contacts in the keyboard are probably dirty. take off the case, dissasemble the keyboard, clean the contacts and put everything back together, it you don't know or can't figure out how to do this, take it to a repairman or get ya a new one.
Check the print wheel to see if any spokes are bent or missing, be sure that you have the proper correction tape (tack free) and that you are not in proportional space or have an international print wheel.
