Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1000 Typewriter

1 Answer

Wheelwriter 1000 We have a Wheelwriter 1000 in our school library that I type all our labels and shelf list cards on. Recently, it has begun not typing, the ribbon doesn't want to advance. For awhile, I was able to advance it manually with the little wheel on the ribbon, but now it won't move at all. The gear has a lot of black dust around it, and I've noticed black speckles on the paper. Thanks.

    So far, so good. It seems to have worked for now. It probably should be serviced for the first time in memory. Thank you very much.

First try a new ribbon. If this dosen't work check to see if the plug to the ribbon feed motor is unplugged and puy some light lube on the upper & lower ribbon motor bearings. WD 40 works well.

Wheelwriter 3500 only printing top half of letters


Sounds like the platen is not fully seated in the side frames, align the black latches with the frames and press firmly on both sides of the platen. the latches do occasionally crack in witch case you may need a platen replacement.

Wheelwriter 30 Series 2


First off make sure the ribbon turns freely.Take off the ribbon and turn the ribbon wheel in the direction of the arrow and see if it turns smoothly. If it turns smoothly the ribbon motor is not moving or the gear is not moving. take off the ribbon and type. See if the black ribbon drive gear on the ribbon deck moves as you type. If not the motor is N.G. or the ribbon gear clutch spring is not grabbing the gear to turn it. Lawrence

Try the unit without the ribbon installed if the mech. seems to operate properly you may only need a new ribbon.  If the condition continues you may need a new ribbon motor or board.
