As for fixing it, to find a tech in your area go to
Electronic Repair Services for the Entire Music Industry MITA International
As far as value, it's very hard to say. The current market for anything but tonewheel hammonds is almost nill in my market (north florida). Your market is hopefully better.

SOURCE: Re: Wurlitzer Digital Home Organ

If you have it apart, look in the area of where the power cord goes in. It would help me if you could mention the model number of the organ.The capacitors are in the same area as a fuse would be. The capacitors smooth and filter the A.C. power after the power goes into the power transformer and is then converted to D.C. to run the components. A fuse could be in the A.C. line or in the D.C. line depending on what it is designed to protect. With a model number we could do a search for a schematic and have a look at the most likely problem spots. The schematics for older analog organs are getting hard to find for free but a newer digital one may be easier. Let me know how you make out. Here is an interesting article that may give you some clues:http://www.theatreorgans.com/hammond/keng/kenhtml/wurlitzer%20organs%20by%20frank%20pugno.htm Here is another link with info:http://www.combo-organ.com/spares_and_repairs.htm#Electrolytics Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Need owner's manual for Baldwin Cinema II organ

I have the original technical data for it, as if you wanted to build one yourself from scratch, but no owners manual. Did you ever find an owner's manual? Also, I have the organ itself.

I believe organ hasn't been played or even turned on in over 10 years. The top keyboard plays if I turn on a setting such as piano or trumpet however I can't just get the organ keys to play.


Since the organ has not been used for a long time, I suspect that there can be degradation of the electronics, specially with electrolytic capacitors. hence I request you to switch on the Organ continuously and allow it to warm up, it there is improvement , then it will be worth to remove the bottom panel and clean up the boards,dry the PCB with a hair dryer and reconnect the boards.
Hope this will help.

"60-Hertz hum that comes from


What does monitor speaker MS16 have to do with an organ? To use these on an organ you should be using DI boxes to convert to balanced lines into these speakers. Who knows what type organ you have as you did not give us a clue. There are some POOR QUALITY audio output add-ons that are foisted on people that supposedly put out line level audio from older Hammond organs... these are noisy and generate hum as they have not been engineered but instead tinkered.

When I turn on my xk1, I get no sound, no response from any buttons, keys, drawbars or knobs. I have tried the factory reset and it doesn't work either. What else can I do before I return it to the...


Take it to the store and have them test it... don't be surprised if there is a simple thing that has been overlooked. If it doesn't worked there, it needs to go in for servicing so that is the logical course to follow anyway.

What does a fuse look like for a Lowrey Teenie Genie organ and where is it?


When someone asks me a question like this, I get shivers up and down my back for I worry about the possible personal safety risks the questioner is either likely or prepared to put themselves to.

Look, let's be realistic, if you don't understand what a fuse looks like, you are not going to be given a carte blanche run down of what to do from this Technician of 45 years experience. You simply would not be allowed into my workshop.

If you want to satisfy your curiosity, get the Technician you call in to check your organ out to show it to you. That way you will enlightened.........and remain SAFE from possible electrocution.

Make no mistake about it, 240 volts AC 50 Hertz is LETHAL !

Hammond organ, L series brought out of lomg term storage problem


Lubricate with OFFICIAL Hammond oil immediately! Then let sit for a couple weeks. Manually turn the generator and add lube as needed until free. If bearings still sticky, put a bit of CRC226 on them individually and free them, then lube with the hammond oil via the wicks.
CRC226 is available at Home Depot in electrical dept.

Also, go to the organforum.com for additional help.

Hello there:
on the back of the organ if you remove the back of it and look to the left side there will be a set of fuses that control different features of the organ
there is also capacitors that sit further in the organ so you may want to check them out too there is a wiring diagram on the inside of the back cover this will help you determine what size fuse may be needed
There used to be a piano and organ shop that was located in tyler i dont know if they are still there i live here in dangerfield which is located in northeast texas and i have a dealer here but i dont know if they would do you any good being that far away.
I will post a comment tommorow when they are open to see if they can give me a closer dealer for you ok it is called the music connection so you may want to search the internet for this site ok
best regards michael

Estey chord organ giving off sharp metallic smell


The organ is basically a harmonica gated by keys. It has reeds and a fan.

I would open it up and clean everything. It is possible a mouse has gotten in there and they stink including their messes for quite a while.

You might need to lube the fan.
