Question about IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter

1 Answer

I have a wheelwriter 6 type 674X IBM typewriter. I do not have a manual, and it seems like it has started striking softer and not making a very legible letter. How can I change the setting to make it strike harder? Thanks Danny

First try a little WD40 on the print solenoid plunger, If that dosen't help you probably have a broken plastic print solenoid cap. We vsell replacements for 20.00 including instructions and shipping.

IBM Wheelwriter 6 Typewriter - while typing, characters just quit printing on paper. Checked ribbon, machine etc. Everything checked out?? What could be the problem.


It is probably the print solenoid that has a broken cap. I have seen a few advertisers that sell the repair kit with instructions. It is fairly simple to repair.

WheelWriter 3 hums when turned on.


My best bet is a power supply. You can probably buy a working one on ebay for less than the repair.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter Typewriter Model 674X and it keeps beeping at me when I type. Why is it beeping and/or how do you make it stop?


the beeping is the spellcheck option.. you just have to quit spelling wrong! Just Kidding. The dictionary is limited. You can turn it off by holding the 'code' key while pressing the key that says 'spell' on the top row.

You probably have a broken print solenoid pad. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and handeling and instructions.

To record you hold down"store" and hit "1" that opens the storage unit. Type what you want to keep. when finished press "store" again. that closes that storage unit. When you want to play that , hold "play" and tap "1" that storage unit will play out. You can repeat this in storage areas "1" to "99" until the memory is full. To delete the storage unit, hold "delete" and hit a paticular storage area, such as "1" all will be deleted.
