My typewriter hums but nothing happens...seems like the motor is jammed...

The humming is probably the motor turning but the drive belt may be broken. You would need a qualified technician to replace the belt if necessary.

My actionwriter 1 won't turn on. Was informed by IBM they no longer have parts for this machine. What to do?

Check on Ebay for personal Wheelwriters or WW 1000 they will do the job and parts are available. I have a reconditioned one in stock for 225.00 with free shipping.

Nothing happens when you plug it in & turn it

First be sure it is plugged into a working outlet, try another power cord (a 3 wire computer cord will work) look on and around the PC board for vdebris. If these don't help byou probably need a tech.

I have an IBM Executive Model C typewriter that will not run. I plug it in and turn it on and nothing happens. I know it has power because I can feel the heat coming from the machinery.

The motor drive has a clutch right on the end of the motor shaft spray some WD40 on that clutch wait a while then try it again a few tries may be needed.
