How do you replace the batteries on an IBM Wheelwriter 3

My firm just purchased a refurbished IBM Wheelwriter 3 and when I turn it on the line space lights continually blink. It says to replace the batteries with 3 Size AA alkaline batteries. How do you replace them and where are they?

How do I change the line spacing on an IBM 6789 without the monitor?


I believe on the R. side of the keyboard there is a key that says RELOC and in green LINE SPACE press the code key and it will move thespaces To 1, 1.5. 2.and 3,

If yhou aren't using the memory you can remove the batteries and it will set everything to default settings on power up.

The older models have a key on the R. side that says line space, press that and the lights will change to indicate spacing.
On the later ones you must use the code key with with the line space key in green on the R. side.
