Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter
I have a IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II Typewriter and the printwheel will not return completely. Help please
If cleaning and oiling the shaft doesn't work, the carrier motor is probably bad. Is there any noise when you hit return?

Try wiping the large bar that runs left to right under the carrier with a cloth wet with a light oil and then move the carrier by hand to see if it will free up. Be sure the typewriter is turned off.

If you did all those things and you know to remove the case put a few drops of WD40 on the bearings of the carrier motor in the left rear of the T/W.
