Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 5 Series II Typewriter
I measure 3.3 Ohms on the solenoid and about 2.4 volts when typing. Anyone know the proper Ohms for the 1339328 Series 1 solenoid ? 3 Ohms sounds low to me. It draws .7 Ampere at 2.4VDC
UPDATE Oct 19, 2016: (those reading above are normal)
OK so I originally tried adjusting the head. I replaced the print cap (which looked OK but I figured maybe was worn down a bit), no luck. I then replaced the hammer even though I was not convinced of an issue. That did not work. I then took my time and slowly adjusted the striker adjustment (where the hammer touches) and that solved the problem. These machines are work horses and the answer is usually simple. Like mine was just an adjustment. All said, it learned a bit about this and hopefully now others will to. There is minimal information out there on the inter-net. I guess most folks are not using typewriter any longer.
