Question about IBM Office Equipment & Supplies
This is a very common problem with IBM and Lexmark Wheelwriters that have not been serviced for years. Solution: Get some 10 weight machine oil, 3 and 1 oil is ok, but (DO NOT use WD-40). Locate the main carrier shaft,that the carrier travels back-and-forth on, and lubricate it on both sides of the carrier, then wipe with a cloth and repeat. You can move the carrier by hand with the power turned OFF. Teke care to not drip excess oil into machine, or better yet. Lubricate the cloth and wipe the shaft then apply 2-3 drops on the shaft when finished cleaning.
