If you pull the hammer towards you the entire printwheel will come out of the machine. You do not remove the printwheel from it's holder as that is how they are made. printwheels come in different sizes and typestyles but they are all in there housing.
Printwheel in wrong. release the printwheel, make sure the pin is
aligned with the slot on the hub and snap it back in. The printwheel
should spin, then home out to the left margin, then it should be ok.
Check to make sure no pedals on the printwheel are bent.
If you know where the print solenoid is try a few drops of oil on the front and rear of the plunger. If the pad needs replaced it can be done without removing the printer from the machine but it is tough. If you know how to remove the printer take it out, remove the printwheel, there are two screws that hold the solenoid once the dolenoid is out the installation is simple.
The prinwheel sensor is likely the issue. Move the carrier to the right, on the left side of th carrier toward the rear of the machine there should be a small black "flag" sticking out of the carrier. this should move freely in and out if it is not there or does not move the machine cannot detect the printwheel the sensor will need to be replaced.
You ca also check for debri down in the area where the printwheel sits.
