At each end of the platen are black plastic latches, squeeze them together and lift out the platen.

While I haven't seen your model of machine in many moons, the roller was generally not difficult to remove once the plastic housing was removed.
If it appears to be a bigger job than I recall, you could take 1/4 - 1/2 sheet of plain paper, saturate it (not dripping) with naphtha (lighter fluid) and feed it into the machine to cover the label. Allow some time to soak, feed the paper out and wipe the residue of adhesive with a clean lint free rag several times, wetting it if necessary with a few drops of naphtha to complete the removal.
You might feed several clean sheets of paper through before using to ensure no residue or fluid has stayed behind.

Wheelwriter 1500 is only printing the top half of the letters.


I have solved the problem. It turned out that the platen was not completely secured on the left end. Once I snapped it securely in place, the print was fine again. (I had to remove that platen three times to figure that out!) Sorry for the bother, but I'm glad to know where I can seek help now. Thanks.

Paper doesn't load properly in typewriter


The platen shouldn't be too hard to remove; what you describe could be caused by the residue of labels which can be removed by lighter fluid or pure alcohol.
If removing it appears too difficult, try putting a broad stripe of one of the above across the width of the paper and then try again moving it side-to-side.

ONLY TYPES TOP PART OF THE LETTER IBM WHEELWRITER 30 SERIES II


The most common problem is the platen (black roller) gets out of position. Be sure the black latches are aligned wuth the side frames then push down firmly on the ends of the platen it should snap into place.
