IBM wheelwriter 15 Series II not working

Once you cut the machine on the big part in the middles moves all the way to the left hand sides and stops. Once this is done you have the line spacing that blinks on and off and no other movement.
It seems as if the margins are set past the typewriter limits.

If the beeper beeps three times and the line space light start blinking you may need new batteries

It sounds like the keyboard is bad. Check the two bflat connectors from the keyboard to the PC board, if they are connected ok a keyboard is in order.

IBM Selectric II-return goes past the margin stop


The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.

The return clutch torque limiter is off or broken. If you take the right dust cover off it is on the turning hub around the middle of the typewriter. a small spring about 1.25 inches long with a hook on the end. I have been fixing these for 35 years. good luck. Lawrence

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
