Why does my typewriter carrier spontaneously fly to left when typing?


You are most likely at the R. margin with auto return on. Hold the code key and press "R" key.

I have an IBM Wheelwriter 10 Series ii typewriter that locks up with the 1, 1 1/2, 2 & 3 lights on the bottom right blinking. It will do nothing else.


If it types at first then locks up try a shot of WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on, if it still happens the carrier motor will need some to it is located under the case in the R. rear.

Check the printwheel to be sure it is properly installed, turn the machine off and try to move the carrier by hand, it should move with a little resistance, if it is hard to move spray some WD40 on the silver shaft that the printer slides on.

The carriage is jammed up to the left margin and the wheel just spins. Plus, what are the batteries for?


Turn the T/W off and see if the carrier moves freely back and forth, put some WD40 on the silver shaft that it slides on, check for debris in the area under the carrier, be sure the printwheel is properly installed and there is no debris in the P/W area.

The batteries hold up margins tabs and other settings when turned
off.

Can you make sure the number corresponds with the typewriter itself? Sometimes, the manual could be a typo/misprint.
