If some of the keys are hard to press the keyboard is probably coming apart. They can be rebuilt concact Geo. Beyers

I found the two (vertical) slots and inserted the screwdriver. There was some movement inside the typewriter, but the top didn't come off. Do I need to pry it open?

I memory serves me the wheelwriter keyboard is a sealed unit. to remove the housing look for two slots on each side of the lower part of the upper case insert a slim screw drriver into the slot to release the top from the bottom case.

I need a manual for IBM wheelwriter. Is there one


Go to LEXMARK.COM and click your way to publications you will find a downloadable manual there.

If the hammer isn't striking the paper the print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell them for 20.00 includes shipping and instructions.

Wheelwriter 6 typewriter hammer no longer strikes


It is pretty common for the pad on the solenoid to strike the keys wears out, and for the batteries to be dead for the memory. Your machine probably needs a good cleaning, oiling, and a new pad for the striker. about $100.00 in the shop.
