How do I fit the correction tape o a Smith Corona XL1500 typewriter


First, backspace to the mistaken character. You slip the correction tape in the middle of the platen where the type hits, then type the same character, pull out the correction tape, backspace and type the correct character.

The print head might have accummulated a lot of paper bits you need to clear them with a needle or just submerge the tip in petrol or ether. Caution do not submerge if its made of plastic.

To switch fonts on this typewriter, you need to change the letter wheel. Unfortunately, there is no practical way to change the letter wheel in the middle of a document.

When I type some of the letters are appearing with double lines. what is wrong?


Hi;

If you are getting to small vertical lines instead of the character then the printwheel might be bad. All the spokes on the printwheel should be evenly spaced and not bent or deformed.

Typing verticle lines instead of character


It sounds like the spokes on the P/W are damaged or bent, you can try straightening them or put in a new printwheel.

Types wrong Characters


Does it always type the same wrong letter ie a always prints u or w ? if so the print wheel drive gear is out of position. if not and it get random letters some thing may be interfering with the wheel rotation.
