    My problem with the wheelwriter 15 series 2 typewriter is that I can't seem to be able to release margins or tabs that are already set there. I turn on the typewriter and type something and when I hit return it will stop in the middle, or an inch to the left and would not go all the way to the left. I have tried to release the margings or tabs but maybe I am not doing it right because it seems not to be working. Can you please help me with this and let me know how to do it right. Thanks.

The other two sound like the printer shaft is dry (The metal shaft that runs thru the printer) try a few drops of WW40 on each side of the shaft.

Move carrier to left margin press margin release, top left hand side of keyboard, back space to desired position and press L Margin key.  Margins will reset to default if batteries are dead.   Right margin simply space to whever you want the margin and press R Margin.

I do not have a manual for the IBM wheelwriter 3, but I need to know how to set margins for this typewriter. Each time I press return the left margin changes moves to the right. If I shut it off the margin...


The WW3 resets margins and tabs to default on every power up. If the margins change while you are typing then the silver shaft that nthe carrier slides on is probably gummy. A shot of WD40 on both sies of the shaft shouls free it up.

It sounds like the keyboard is bad. Check the two bflat connectors from the keyboard to the PC board, if they are connected ok a keyboard is in order.

Try a little light oil on the printer shaft. WD40 works well.
