If you have tried clearing the tabs and they reappear after turning the unit on again. Thats the way IBM designed it to set a tab grid every 5 spaces. You just have to tab to the right and hold down clear and hit return.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 typewriter. The print wheel does not move when typing and acts as if in stencil mode


From your posting it sounds like you have cracked plastic print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20.00 with instructions.

All of a sudden, the typewriter quit typing.


The plastic cap on the print solenoid is probably broken, they are available but a little tricky to install.

try turning the machine off put a SMALL amount of oil on the large round rod running across the typewriter manually push the print head left and right a few times to see if it will loosen up. The problem is usually caused be drying oil you may consider having it serviced by a pro.
