It is possible that your carriage ahs a bind in it. When you turn on the machine does it go all the way to the left and then jump back to the margin? If you tab all the way to the right, does the carriage make a screeching sound when you hit the return? If this happens, your transport motor may need to be serviced as well as the carriage rails and bearings in the carrier.

SOURCE: Wheelwriter 10 typewriter...typing thick file folders

There is no adjustment on Wheelwriters for thickness. Try pulling the release lever (top right) forward then putting the folder in then push the release lever back.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 powers up, then beeps. No lights, changed batteries. What is problem?


I have an instruction manual for IBM Wheelwriter 1000. The troubleshooting page in my manual for the machine coming on and having no lights is to make sure the cord is securely plugged into the typewriter and the wall or power strip and to switch the machine off and back on. Mine has a power saving mode where the lights go off after a while to enter power saving mode. I only need to touch a key to turn it back on.
Hope this helps - Cindy
