Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 1500 Typewriter

1 Answer

The left margin is stuck and the release margin works only the first time after turning on the typwriter. I can set the margin at a point on the left side, but after a few times of hitting the return key, it just goes to the middle and that becomes my left margin. If I hit the release margin key, it doesn't work. And if I type all the way to the right margin, and hit the return key a few times, then it will lock about 4 inches from the last margin. Every time I type to the far right, it will lock at some point and not hold the far left margin I set. I went to lexmark.com and clicked on support and dowload but they don't have this typewriter: IBM Wheelwriter 1500 by Lexmark. I think it's an old model, I can't find a model number that starts with a letter; all I could find was 1364816. Hope this helps.

Put a shot of WD40 on both sides of the silver shaft that the carroer slides on. If that doesn't do it put some on the carier motor bearings. The front one can be reached from inside of the T/W the rear one yuo will have to remove the case of fish the straw thru it. The motor is located on the R. rear corner.

The return is stuck on 80 on the guide. I cannot


Turn the T/W off and slide the carrier back and forth. If it goes to the left then you have the L. margin set at 80.

Return to the margin, press and release the margin release key, backspace to the desired location, press the L. margin key.

Setting nargins


The keys used for margin control on the brothers is the ALT key just to the left of the space bar, and the #3,4,& 5 keys.

To move outside the present margin to the left, backspace to the left margin. Press the ALT and '3' keys at the same time to bypass the margin. Back space past the margin to the point where the margin is to be set. At the point you want the new left margin, press the ALT and '4' keys at the same time to set the new left margin.

To move outside the present margin to the right, spacebar over to the right margin. Press the ALT and '3' keys at the same time to bypass the margin. Then spacebar over to the point where the new right margin is to be set. Press the ALT and '5' keys at the same time to set the new right margin.

The basics are that the ALT +3 releases margins, ALT +4 sets the left margin at the point of the carrier, ALT + 5 sets the right margin at the point of the carrier.

Hope this helps.

Changing margins


To change or reset margins, the keys involved are the ALT key to the left of the spacebar, the #keys 3,4, & 5.

The ALT & '3' keys are used to bypass the set margins.

To bypass the left margin, move the carrier to the left margin. Press the ALT & '3' keys at the same time. Release them then backspace the carrier to the point the new margin is wanted. Press the ALT and '4' keys at the same time to set the new left margin.

To bypass the right margin, move the carrier to the right margin. Press the ALT & '3' keys at the same time. Release them and spacebar to the point where the new right margin is wanted. Press the ALT & '5' keys to set the new right margin.
The main thing to remember is to move the carrier to the point where the new margin is needed. ALT + 3 bypasses old margins, ALT + 4 sets the left margin, & ALT + 5 sets the right margin.

I am using an AE-830 and have the left margin stuck in the middle of the page. How do I release and set back to the left? Thanks


Move the printer to the margin using return button. Press the margin release button, backspace to where you want the margin to be, then press the left margin set. All should be good.

How to reset margins on kx-r340 typewriter?


Hi;

To set or change the left margin space forward and press the left margin key. If you want to go in the other direction the press the margin release key once(do not hold it down) the use the backspace key to get to the point where you want to set the margin and press the left margin key.

The setting of the right margin works the same way.

Margin Release


Try holding down on the MR (margin release) key and turn on. Machine will print a few lines with all the letters. Turn off and then on and try. Also make sure someone has not switched the key tops for left marging and right margin, I have seen this "joke" played on people. Can you set either margins?
