How do i increase the force of the hammer hitting the daisy wheel?

Code "Q" will increase the impression the space lights indicate i, 2 or three. a little WD 40 on the print solenoid may help. But I believe tour loss of impression is a cracked plastic print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20.00 including shipping and instructions.

Letters now well formed

first of all check out replacing the ribbon cartridge.if the cartridge is got torn or over replace the ribbon . There is a solenoid down to the left of the horseshoe shaped printwheel mount. If it is gummed up or the nylon hammer plate is broken or missing the hammer will not strike the printwheel and you will not get print out or broken letters on print. Check the solenoid with a thin screwdriver by pulling and pushing the plate and rod in and out as if you were trying to make the solenoid push the hammer toward the type wheel. If the hammer moves when you bush the solenoid then it may be gummed up or not getting electrical impulse. If it moves but the hammer doesn't move then the cushion at the tip of the solenoid is missing and the gap is to great for the solenoid to act upon the hammer.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Wheel writer II will not print - replaced with new ribbon

There's a small cap on the solenoid that pushes the hammer, this cap wears out and the solenoid cannot push anymore. Cheap part, always wears out, new ones are teflon and last lots longer.

Is the hammer moving at all? There is a rubber part on the I think left side of the ribbon hammer, down on the side of the printer. This will adjust the amount of impact. I really doubt if
this is the problem, but worth a try to look at. This part and I think it is a blue slide will move up and down to adjust the impact. Possible lubrication and there is a large spring that actually pulls that hammer forward, check to see if this spring is OK. Other than that electronic problems such as main board, printer motors, etc. Does hammer move freely by hand? Also mechanical binding in the printer... GOOD LUCK.

Ibm wheelwriter 10 - setting impression pressure

The lights have 2 functions when in the impression mode they tell you the impression, when releasrd they go back to indicating space setting. The imp. setting remains where you left the lights.

If you are getting light print try a little WD40 on the front and rear of the solenoid plunger they get gummy. If that dosen't help the plastic cap on the solenoid is propbly cracked,
