Types wrong letters ie; type "B" and type writer types "?" How do i fix this

First, try a different printwheel. If that doesn't work, try blowing out the carrier as the sensor that reads the printwheel may be dirty. You may also need a new selection motor.

Wheel is missing letters, broke off I guess. Does the wheel get old and fall apart? I haven't used the type writer in a few months. Should I get another wheel or call for repair? Thanks! Karen

The wheel usually last for many years. I'm assuming you are getting 2 vert lines in place of the missing letter (hammer face). Used replacement wheels are available for 29,95.

The letters I key in do not type until I hit enter.

If this is a WW6 it must have the display option. There is a slide switch on the display that is probably in the wrong position.
