Move the carrier all the way to the right an touch the R. margin key. You should also check the batteries, if they are corroded replace and clean up the contacts with some sand paper.

We have ibm wheelwriter 3000. When typing it makes a beeping noise. Tried to release margins, but still beeps

If it beeps on every key stroke try code "S" If it beeps once in a while it may be the spell check code "1" will turn that off. If it always beebs at the same place the R. margin is probably set there. Space all the way to the R. and press R. mar key.

I have a wheelwriter 300. when i hit the tab key, after just turning on the typewriter, the carriage moves only as far as hitting the space bar. if i hit it again, it jumps about 2 inches and then stops....

Put a little shot of WD40 on both sides of the the silver shaft that the carrier slides on if that doesn't do it some WD40 on the carrier motor bearings. The front one can be reached from inside the T/W
the rear either you must remove the case or fish the straw tru the case. The motor is in the R. rear corner of the T/W.

Typewriter freezes

Your description is a little vague, does it type letters and freeze when you hit the space bar or or just stop on all keys?
