There MAY be a counterbalance spring that is missing or broken AND there HAS to be a friction device to hold the position. You should be able to remove the pedal assembly to analyze and repair it.

It may involve just tightening whatever is suppose to create the friction to hold the pedal.

Wurlitzer C200 organ, volume pedal does not work, the Great keyboard is at full volume. Can't find anything online. Can you help me find information on repairing/replacing the volume pedal?


full volume ??? hum that's funny , as if pedal has broken one would suspect that it would go to lowest volume and stay there , 1st id ck to make sure the "bright" switch is not on or stuck on then id dive into taking the cover off the pedal assembly , for a look around to see if somethings obviously not right in there (hanging springs, swinging levers, etc)

I have just got my grandmothers Yamaha B-4CR organ there is low volume coming out but when I move the vplume pedal it doesnt increase the sound... What can I do


As I recall, the volume pedal on that model is optically coupled, meaning it operates via a light source. I'm afraid it will probably need a tech to come check it out. You can find on close to you by calling your nearest piano/organ store, or by going to the MITA tech site which has a search engine. Here's the link-

I purchased a used Hammond Organ Aurora, Model 700, 710 C125 but the previous owner did not have the manual for it. I am looking for a manual so I know how and what to do to play it. I don't know what...


Try the organforum . com. There are a lot of Hammond people there. The model 700 is the base model and probably enough to get you started.
Also just get a organ music book as a lot of the vernacular is in those. Also check your library for organ books. OFTEN the user manuals aren't much use to learn the instrument.

Most organs will either have tabs or drawbars. These select the type of "voice" and often one selects more than one as a mix. Each keyboard is refered to as a "Manual". Most organs have foot pedals. Each of the manuals and the foot pedals will have a seperate set of tabs associated with them.

To get started, turn on the organ and press the expression pedal which controls the volume... experiment setting a few tabs or drawbars an play notes on the manuals. You will soon learn what controls what.

Note that some models of Hammond organs used rotating tone wheels and those require lubrication. Those that do, usually have a power switch labelled "start" and "Run". These organs are usually higher value and one should have them serviced before using.

The pedal keys doesn't work, no sound coming out of the upper notes of the pedel keys.


We can only guess at what type, model, and brand of instrument you have.

This is probably some type of organ... however there are many types.

IF the pedals are part of the main body of the organ, I would suspect a broken wire.

If it is a console organ, often the pedals have tabs that actuate switches. Often people place thess on a rug which CAN block the pedal from moving far enough.

Another thing is that SOME voices that can be used by the pedals on some organs do NOT span all the pedals because the instrument being emulated won't go that high in pitch.

Thomas jester 132 organ troubleshooting E-flat below mid c not working correctly on either keyboard or foot pedal all other keys ok volume pedal is scratchy but works ok


Here is where you can get the service manual:http://celedoniaorgan.netfirms.com/cosco/nfoscomm/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1021&osCsid=3eaaa99d6bfceeaaf9b844687ba58d55 Since the problem is with the foot pedal note and the keyboard note I would suspect that there is a problem with the tone generation circuit for that note. You might try cleaning the key contacts on both for that note first to see if that works. The volume pedal probably just needs the volume pot cleaned with contact cleaner spray. I hope this helps. Let me know if it does.

Try posting on the organforum.com.

It sounds like the power amp has a problem. Probably filter capacitors have gone bad.

IF the expression pedal uses a lamp and light-dependent-resistor, check for burned out lamp at the pedal.
