Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter

3 Answers

Need a user manual

I just bought a used Wheelwriter 3 to replace my screwed up Personal Wheelwriter which arbitrarilly returns and locks up and won't tab over. On problem. The newer Wheelwriter 3 does not have a manual and there must be something tricky to get it to work. All I get is power on, and any key I push, it beeps and flashes on the right side panel in the line space area. Does anyone have a manual? Thanks, Fred San Diego.

    The line space indicator lights up and beeps with every key pressed. All attempts to correct the problem have failed. I can't find anyway to clear the error.

Make sure it has new batteries - my lights flash when it needs batteries.

Ibm wheelwriter typewriter will not return all of the way


Take a rag with some light oil like 3 in 1 oil or WD 40 and clean off the metal rod that the carrier moves across. Then apply some more around the entire rod with your fingers. The carrier should move much better after that.

Look at the ribbon and see if the letters are on the very top of th ribbon. If so on the front of the carrier there is an eccentric screw for adj. ribbon height. Loosen the lock nut W/ a small 9/32 wrench and adj screw to raise ribbon. Be sure to check L/O with the underscore as you can get it to high.

Can you make sure the number corresponds with the typewriter itself? Sometimes, the manual could be a typo/misprint.

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.
