Needs a good cleaning and lubrication. I charge $ 75.00 to make it clean as new. You can try to simply lubbicate it yourself. Just drop 1 drop of oil into each typebar guide. Hit each key a few times.
My number is 727-773-8973 in Largo, Florida

How do I put lift off tape in my typewriter olivetti ET compact 60? Do you know which of the two yellow rings (the coged or the smooth) with the tape that must be in which side (left and right)?


Can't picture your machine but if you lift the cover and hit correct key a few times, you'll see the side that drives the tape moving. The "empty" spool will go on that side. Make sure the flat, not shiny, side goes towards the roller.

Dora 204 SP Olivetti Typewriter I have an intermittent sticking returns key Causes paper to run on. Can I do anything about it, or can you tell me of a Service Centre in Hampshire n UK.


hello

take Q-tip cotton , apply small portion on hammer letter keys and carriage -- moving parts only

dip and smear into vasaline, wipe off excess. apply to the keys sticking or to carriage return key . this is amechanical sticking , so apply to where the part (carriage or moving part) applies. Also, take a plain paper , keep tapping the key and then return key carriage , until sticking stops and until the vasaline dissipates . repeat the typing for about 1-2 mintes until excess vasaline is no longer present on paper after typing.

repeat this process anytime the keys stick

hpe this helps

Hammers missing the paper


The type-bar basket is not returning to the rest position. The lift springs may be too weak (shorten them), something may have dropped inside the machine to jam the basket, or the up-stop for the basket may need adjusting.

Lettera 22 - sips and adds spaces on occassion


If it skips at the same place or skips every 10 or 12 spaces all the time it is a broken tooth on the escapement wheel or rack. It could be in typing you are lingering on the key causing it to spring back a little ans space over.

Return sticks


Try putting a few drops of light oil on the shaft that the carrier rides on and the pulleys that the cables are on (WD40 works well) also look for debris under the carrier.
