Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter

1 Answer

Not Printing some characters

I have a IBM Wheelwriter 10 series II that will not print some of the characters such as period and comma. I have read that there is a plastic cap or something that breaks but do not know where it is located. Could you give me some direction and do you sell the replacement?
THANK YOU,
Doug

You can get the cap from us, however try getting some lube on the front or the solenoil plunger they do gum up.

Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

Not likely that you need a print hammer. You may need a plastic print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and instructions.

When typing, all of the letters do not print,


There are two possibilities, Most likely the print solenoid cap is broken but the solenoid may just be gummy. The sol. is just inside the L. printer side frame just L of the selection motor, just in front of and directly below the small blue rubber damper. Spray some WD40 on the rear of the solenoid. If that dosen't help we sell the solenoid cap with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

If it is printing just the tops the platen may not be fully seated in the side frames, press down firmly on both ends of the platen.
If it is just printing poorly the print solenoid cap is cracked or the ribbon may not be feeding properly.

There is a plastic cap on the end of the print solenoid plunger whichis probably broken. They are available fron us for 15.00 including postage but can be a little tricky to install
