Can a IBM wheelriter 6 repair when the G andH will not work


Replace the Daisy wheel cartridge, pull back on the small red top lever and it should rotate the print hammer back exposing the Daisy wheel cartridge, lift out and replace with new one, push the print hammer back forward till it latches and captures the new daisywheel. Turn unit on and let it initialize, try typing, it should be OK. Examine old daisy wheel you will find the G and H segments are probably missing.

Where is the TYPEWRITER SOLENOID on a IBM Wheelwriter 6 Series II


The "print" solenoid is what hits the hammer that hits the printwheel and makes it type on your paper. If you remove the ribbon and look straight down in the carrier on the left side you can see the solenoid. It is below the blue piece of rubber that sits on the hammer arm. The end of the solenoid is supposed to have a cap on the end of the plunger. This cap gives a specific clearance so when it is activated, it hits the hammer arm to propel it forward to strike the printwheel.

Ibm 6747 w'ont write (hammer w'ont hit)


Your print solenoid probably has a broken cap. There are some companies that sell the "kit" with instructions on how to replace the cap.

Print wheel hammer not hitting print wheel when typing.


Your problem is probably the print solenoid either not firing or the cap that is on the end of it has broken off. Usually the cap is broken and a new one can be installed in its place.

There is a solenoid that hits the hammer when a key is pressed. There is a plastic spacer on the solenoid plunger that falls apart and keeps the plunger from hitting the hammer. Therefore it looks and sounds like it is working but no letters appear on the paper. Try to find a typewriter repairman to fix it. It is a common problem on wheelwriters so any repairman should know what part is needed.
