My IBM selectric II typewriter carriage stuck in right margin


Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

I have a IBM Correcting Selectric II and I'm having trouble clearing out the margins. Can you help?


space to the right side of the machine, hold down the tab clear key and hit return.

If the carriage stops partway back, one of the tab stops has rotated too far on the tab bar.

remove the platen and paper pan, go to the stuck stop, rotate it to the rear of the machine to line up with the other tabs

IBM Selectric II-return goes past the margin stop


The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.

IBM Selectric II won't return completely


The machine is probably gummy. If you know how to remove the case do so, get some WD40 and spray everything that moves espesially the stuff on the outside of the rt. side frame.

Is the key stuck in the down position? If you pull the key off you should see a spring underneath. Maybe out of position or damaged.

The return clutch torque limiter is off or broken. If you take the right dust cover off it is on the turning hub around the middle of the typewriter. a small spring about 1.25 inches long with a hook on the end. I have been fixing these for 35 years. good luck. Lawrence
