Question about IBM Wheelwriter 30 Typewriter
The hammer is not moving. the model is ibm 6746

Dickyo is exactly right. The solenoid pad for the print hammer is deteriorated. A tech can replace it with a new hard nylon one that will last for years.

You didn't say what make or model this is. If it is an IBM wheelwriter there is a good chance the print solenoid cap is broken.

Is the hammer moving at all? There is a rubber part on the I think left side of the ribbon hammer, down on the side of the printer. This will adjust the amount of impact. I really doubt if
this is the problem, but worth a try to look at. This part and I think it is a blue slide will move up and down to adjust the impact. Possible lubrication and there is a large spring that actually pulls that hammer forward, check to see if this spring is OK. Other than that electronic problems such as main board, printer motors, etc. Does hammer move freely by hand? Also mechanical binding in the printer... GOOD LUCK.
