Where is the TYPEWRITER SOLENOID on a IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II

The "print" solenoid is what hits the hammer that hits the printwheel and makes it type on your paper. If you remove the ribbon and look straight down in the carrier on the left side you can see the solenoid. It is below the blue piece of rubber that sits on the hammer arm. The end of the solenoid is supposed to have a cap on the end of the plunger. This cap gives a specific clearance so when it is activated, it hits the hammer arm to propel it forward to strike the printwheel.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 key stricker is not moving, the print wheel turns but nothing prints.

Remove the P/W look for broken or bent spokes. If the cent sign will print you need a printwheel.

How do you change the font size on the ibm wheelwriter 3 typewriters?

The WW3 will type whatever printwheel is in the machine. If you want something different you will have to buy another printwheel. It says on the printwheel whether it is a 10 pitch or a 12 pitch.

Check in the area where the printwheel is installed for paper or other debris. If it does the same thing with the printwheel out then it is probably a printwheel sensor.

Sounds like you have tried all the easy stuff. I'll guess that the gear on the selection plate is loose from the shaft. No easy fix, you may be better off buying a replacement on ebay they get pretty cheap.
