    • Ensure the ribbon is moving from the fullest spool to the emptiest as you type.

    • If the ribbon is moving in the wrong direction, flip the ribbon reverse switch.

Abschluss

My smith corona vintage typewriter ribbon won't advance. The left side is tight. The ratchet is not turning the bar. The square spring is not broken.The bar does go back and forth, better on the right side. I don't know how to lubricate the spindle shaft on the left side to make it turn more easily. The little ratchet is not grabbing as well as it might, and thus the bar is not turning. I can turn the bar with my fingers.

You're going to have to disassemble the body as much you can to get to the spool assembly and attack it with mineral spirits/rubbing alcohol to dissolve the gunk around the gears. Apply a small amount of gun oil. Typical issue for some typewriters.
