Try a little shot of WD40 on each side of the silver shaft that the carrier slides on,. If that doesn't work you have to lube the carrier motor bearings the front one is accessable from the inside the rear one you may be able the straw thru the release lever hole.

IBM Wheelwriter 30 won't let us clear the left margin


If the carrier (print head) goes to the left when you turn the T/W on then try this.
Return to the L. margin, press mar rel key, backspace to the location that you want the margin, press L. mar key the wheel should spin and reset the margin.
