Even in the era of high-tech computers and other sophisticated office equipment, adding machines still play an important role in business bookkeeping. Canon adding machines use standard paper rolls, although the size depends on the model you own. Because the rolls need to be changed often, Canon makes them easy to replace. However, you must still follow a specific procedure to ensure that the machine functions properly.

Remove the tape on the new roll of paper. Cut the end at a 45-degree angle, starting at the right corner of the free end.

Turn off the adding machine.

Lift the paper roll arm and remove the empty roll.

Place the replacement roll on the arm with the cut end pointing up and to the right.

Insert the end of the paper into the small opening on the back of the feed tray.

Turn the machine back on. Press the "Paper Feed" button until the end of the roll appears at the top of the feed tray.
