Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1500 Typewriter

1 Answer

Squeaking I'm using a Wheelwriter 1500, and it has started squeaking. Types okay, but making squeaking noise. Unrelated is that the correction funtion doesn't work. I've replaced the correction tape, but still doesn't work. Thanks!

There are many things that will cause squeeking. First does it make noise when you tab or return if so open the cover and see if it goes away if so the red indicator may be rubbing on the margin scale, bend it back a bit. If it only squeeks when typing try a little WD40 on the motor that drives the print wheel the back bearing is a little hard to grt at.

Not correcting. Be sure you have a correctable ribbon on it(yellow og orange knob)

Hope this helps

If your Mazda Tribute's engine has a rumbling noise when you start it, this is most likely from the drive belt. You will need to replace it.

2010 electra glide ultra classic, squeaking noise from primary side only when riding. Could clutch or, belt be the problem. Clutch engages smoothly with no acceleration problems. Especially noticeable on...


You need to determine whether the squeaking is being made by the engine, the primary, the drive, or the frame. While riding, pull in the clutch, does the squeaking stop or change in any manner? Is the noise there when the engine is running but standing still? Pull the clutch lever in and release, does the squeak change or stop.

If I had to say what I think it is, I'd say it's probably the rear drive belt is not tracking correctly due to the alignment of the rear wheel. Look at the rear wheel adjusters. They should be exactly the same on either side of the swingarm. Also, the belt must be tight. If not, a loose belt will make a squeaking noise.

Good Luck

You may have a problem in the evaporator fan . Defrost fridge for 24 hours and start up. Problem should go away for some time. For a long term solution you need to check if defrost cycle is funtioning well if not suspect the timer or the heater.
