Cursor stays in middle



The cursor of the typewriter stays in the middle & I can not get it to stay on the left side of the typewriter so I can start to type.  When I hit return it just always starts in the middle.  Help.. before I go crazy.

Wheelwriter platen latch removal

Very vague question. the left side you have to drive the pin out.
right side just a clip.

If the platen wont stay down you can carefully wire it down so it doesnt interfere with the carrier is moved to the left.

Or buy a used platen.

Print head moves left and stays horrible noise

The problem is either something is interfering with the carrier movement OR the carrier homing sensor is broken/defective. First, turn off the power and manually move the carrier to the right side frame, check for foreign objects in the machine (pens, pushpins, paper clips etc.). Put some oil (10 weight) on a cloth and clean the chrome shaft that the carrier travels on.(by the rubber cogged belt). This is a common problem. If the sensor itself is the problem, take to a repair shop.(not common)

Carrriage assembly could be broken, otherwise screw is popped out of gear in the right. With carriage all the way left, take out screw in the middle of white gear, pull out gear and pin, push down carriage top, insert pin in carriage and re-install screw.

Carrier stays to the left

Look inside the machine and make sure nothing has fallen into it that may be blocking the carriage from reaching it's "home" position. Sometimes a lift off spool will fall off and do that.
