The keyboards are known to go bad on the Wheelwriters. You may need to seek out a service technician.

The first thing to do is to put some WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if that dosen't do it either the gear on the carrier motor is cracked or the keyboard is bad. With the machine off slide the carrier back and forth if you get a tight spot every few inches the carrier motor gear is cracked.
