Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 15 Series II Typewriter
I have a Selectric II that has not been used in roughly 10 years. It turns on and the carriage strikes a few times and moves to the left. However, there is no response when I press the keys. I've fixed quite a few manual typewriters, but I'm at a loss with all the electric components. Any suggestions?
Can I clean and lubricate it myself or do I have to pay someone

Yes. From not being used in so long It needs a chemical cleaning or washout and lubrication. It may need a part or two also. Everything is gummed up. I have been repairing selectrics for 35 years. Lawrence

Mr fixall is right. The grease in the machine gets clogged with dirt, and goes hard in cold weather. It will have to be washed out and regreased by an IBM trained tech

Paper won't feed.
Typehead won't move across paper.
Just bought on E-Bay; feeling somewhat abused.
