Question about IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter
Typing sentence and just suddenly stopped typing words on paper. Machine is still striking (or sounds like it) but not putting on paper. Checked all parts, ribbons (according to instruction manual) to no avail. Made no sounds, just doesn't press on the paper like the striker is not hitting hard enough??

It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

SOURCE: Characters do not print.
The print solenoid plunger has a plastic cap on the end of the plunger it is probably broken. They are available but you need a bit of mechanical ability to install.

Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

Testimonial: "I tried wiggling the gear, but it wouldn't budge. So, I pulled it out, toward the right. It popped back into place and started lifting the ribbon."
