Probably your print wheel has a bent or broken B spoke. If it is bent you can probably straighten it if it's broken it needs replaced.

I wish I could see the unit. Something is blocking the lift assembly. Something simple I am sure. Lift it and lay it on it's back and look for a lever or spring that may be out of place. Maybe something dropped inside and is jamming it. Big paper clips or if you have a small child around. Little toys, pencils etc. Good luck.

SOURCE: How to type in capital letters on facit typewriter?

You did not specify if it was a manual or electric or the model, so assuming it is a standard manual or electric machine, push down on the shift key and hold it, then type your letter or letters. If you are typing everything in caps, press the shift lock key.

Need to find the number 1 key all I see is 2 to 9


Use the lower case L key.  Older typewriters didn't have a 1 because the lower case L looks similar.
