Repairing the Carriage Return on a Smith Corona Sterling Electric 12

I have a Smith Corona Sterling Electric 12. Everything looked fine until I plugged it in and was testing it. It works perfectly except that when using the lever to return the carriage, it doesn't stay. The cord pulls it back to the end of page position. Is there a simple adjustment to fix this problem?

I love typewriters! There are a number of how to videos on YouTube so maybe one of these can help you:

If not, there are still typewriter repair shops around the US. I have a list somewhere I can dig up if you tell me where you are located.

Another poster recently said that Smith Corona no longer supports anything related to typewriters. How sad is that.

I love the sound of a typewriter so much, I have used it for one of my cell phone alerts!!

Post back what you learn and if a video helped, which one!

Blessings!
