Broken Platen Knob

The knob for the platen fell off. The inner part that connects to a metal bar which turns the platen broke. Do you have an extra knob? How much are they?
Thank you.

How do I take apart my Brother typewriter to remove a label stuck to the metal bar where the paper feeds in?


I wish I had one in front of me, but I don't. Brother used two ways of holding the Platen (big black roller in place. Open the top cover and look at the frame where the platen is held. You will likely see plastic clips holding the axial that runs through the platen (85% of brother machines have clips), or you will see that the axial runs directly through the frame. If you see clips just squeeze the tabs and lift up. Note which side has the gear, so that it is reinstalled the same way. If you don't have clips you will need to loosen the Allen screws holding the knob to the platen roller, and the roller will lift right out. If the label left any of the rollers sticky they must be completely cleaned before reassembly, Goo-Gone is a good product to remove gummy labels.

Best of luck, Ron

Hitting Return just brings the carriage back to the start of the same line and doesn't insert a line break on a smith-corona


Assuming this is a mechanical machine with elect5ric motor:
Verify the line space selector is not set on 0. (just inside LH platen knob)
Check that the LH platen knob does no have a push lever sticking out to the left.
Try placing a few drops of oil at the left portion of the platen, just left of the metal teeth (the linespace pawl may be jammed and not restoring to rest position)

My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine


this sounds like the needle guard it is usually held on by the same screw that holds the needle clamp it should fit so that it comes across the needle at the front to stop your fingers being sown but not interfere with the needle try turning by hand before turning back on.

Turntable power knob broke..


there should be a metal bit in the middle of that switch housing, sorta like the spindle on the platter, it should have one flat edge just get some pliers and twist the metal bar in the middle clockwise, until you replace the switch that will be the only way to swtich it off and on.

ive done this before many times, and sometimes in clubs the decks are in bad shape, so i always bring pliers, just in case!

Advancing the paper


I need ti know if you turn the platen knob with the power on is there any hasitation or is it free wheeling. if it's free then the motor belt is broke or a gear has snapped. if there is hasitation it may just need some light oiling on the bearings. turn the type off turn the platen if fills hard lightly oil both shafts at eather side of platen by side frame. hope this works

My needle broke and a piece of metal fell out of machine


Totally happened to me last week. I discovered that the metal piece that fell off and holds the needle has a small screw that holds it in place. It needs an Allen wrench (tiny one) to tighten it back into place. I just lucked into figuring it out.
