Is the typewriter working? If so, you may be receiving false signals.If not working or certain features are a no go, you will have to make a decision whether it is worth to repair those features and at what price.
With repair labor being what it is and with electronics being so reasonable these days, it may be better to replace than fix.

On the Wheelwriter machines, it is the printwheel that determines what pitch you are in. The wheel has holes in it that a part "reads" the holes when the machine is turned on or when the printwheel is changed. You can not manually change pitch.

Your problem is a bind in either your carriage or the transport motor. Your machine may just need service and or cleaning.

Lexmark... | Answered on Jan 07, 2015

Your problem is probably the transport motor. It is the one that makes the carriage go back and forth. There is probably a bind in the carriage. Look at the metal shaft that runs through the carriage. Cleaning this shaft with contact cleaner and then putting a thin amount of oil on the shaft. (A very small amount mind you). You can clean the area where the shaft runs through the carriage on both sides. This will help with any binds the carriage may cause. If the problem continues, then the machine should have the motor serviced or replaced.
