Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter
I have an intermittent problem with the carriage assembly when i hit return. if i get past the half-way point the carriage will only return to the half way point. it wont go all to the left margin, and sometimes when i get all the way to the right margin it wont return at all. it just goes down to the next line, however, if i turn it off and then back on again it will reset to the left margin.
Do you hear any grunting noises when you tab or return? If so, then DickyO is right. A few drops of oil on the silver support shaft should help. Also, clean the shaft after oiling then apply a couple of more drops.

Try putting a little light oil on the silver shaft that the printer slides on, WD40 works well.
