Hi:

You either have a sticky print solenoid or the rubber bumper on the end of the print solenoid has deteriorated with age. This is a very common problem with that vintage Wheelwriter. It is an easy fix for a qualified tech who has the right part. It's not really something a user could tackle themselves.

My Brother ML100 is not printing what I type


Hammer sticking and typing incorrect letters (and or skipping letters): 1) make sure daisy wheel installed correctly. 2) hold down CODE key & Q (RESET) to reset wheel...if still not corrected 3) WD40 the hammer at the base & joints where moving parts are, keep typing until oil seeps in (this last one fixed it for me)

Typing light and inconsistant-top part of letter okay but bottom too light or not there: to left of hammer (at base) are 2 screws, I losened them and adjusted hammer to different forward and backward spots..finally found the ideal location where full letter printed and had the correct force it needed to print correctly.

On my wheelwriter 6, when i type everything goes through the motion but it want type any letter on the paper. I change the ribbon and install fresh batteries?


There is a part on the print hammer solenoid that falls apart over time. It is a small whiteish cap that
just falls apart so the machine sounds and looks like it is working but there is nothing being transfered to the paper. I have ordered this part from Coleman manufacturing.

When typing, random letters are being printed, the keys of which have not been hit, at least not in the order in which they are printing on the paper.


You didn't give model so its hard to be sure...however check if your machine has a slide switch on the LHS of the Kybd...it may be in the PS position...should be in 10,12..etc.

When typing, all of the letters do not print,


There are two possibilities, Most likely the print solenoid cap is broken but the solenoid may just be gummy. The sol. is just inside the L. printer side frame just L of the selection motor, just in front of and directly below the small blue rubber damper. Spray some WD40 on the rear of the solenoid. If that dosen't help we sell the solenoid cap with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

IBM Wheelwriter 6-Letters striking paper above


Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

Hammers missing the paper


The type-bar basket is not returning to the rest position. The lift springs may be too weak (shorten them), something may have dropped inside the machine to jam the basket, or the up-stop for the basket may need adjusting.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 series II - prints only half a letter


If it types only the top half yhe platen is probably not all the way in. Make sure the 2 black latches are lined up with the side frames then press down firmly on both sides of the platen.
