After typing first line, hit the return key. The carriage would not return to the far left margin...it only moved 12 or so spaces to the left.


The carrier slides on a silver shaft that is about 1/2" thick spray some WD40 on the shaft, if that doesn't do it you have to get some on the carrier motor bearings located under the case in the R. rear corner.

My IBM selectric II typewriter carriage stuck in right margin


Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

Cant typer further than 10 characters


The trouble is probably the silver shaft that the carrier slides on is gummed up. Try a little WD40 on the shaft, if that dosen't work the carrier motor in the L. rear corner may need lubricated, WD40 will do that too.

Margins


L. margin - return to current mar. press mar. rel. key, backspace to the wanted location press L. margin key.

R. margin - space or backspace to desired location press R. mar key.

The margin keys are on the left side of the keyboard.

Carriage return not working


Turn off T/W and see if the carrier will move back and forth freely, if so try removing the batteries and unplugging the machine this will reset to defalt settings. CAUTION THIS WILL ALSO CLEAR YOUR MEMORY!! If the carrier is hard to move a little light oil on the shaft it slides on may cure the problem.

Wheelwrite 10 stuck in the middle


It sounds like the left margin is set in the middle of the page, return to the stopping place, press margin release then backspace to the place where you wany the left margin and press l. margin key.

If that dosen't do it remove the batteries and unplug the machine for a minute or two all settings will go to defalt. CAUTION ALL THE MEMORY WILL BE CLEARED!!!
