It could be a capacitor issue, if you will be able to open the organ from behind, look for a piece that looks like the picture below and check if it is almost bursting or ballooning,( like when you put some Coke in a plastic bottle then shake it until the bottle almost pops), if you see them like that, that means they may be damaged and must be replaced. check the catalog here

I think there is no defected parts, it is only loose or crack or cold solder joints connections to the circuit board.This is a common problem "you done nothing and then it's not works"...
Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the Hammond organ turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing.don't forget to rate ;this is the only way i get paid for my works thank you in advance..

Good luck:

    Don't replaced ever any parts,If you not perform resoldering process. After resoldering observe if its working,if not that is the time you replaced the parts.This is better because you might be replaced a good parts and still not working..

The only way to find out what the problem is to open it and check any fuses in there, if all the fuses appear OK next step would be to measure the voltages from the power source to the rest of the circuitry.
I would suggest to contact this website for parts availability and they might be able to help you.

It sounds to me like it blew a fuse. Open up the organ and look around where the power cord enters the internals. There should be some sort of inline fuse there. If there is simply relace it with a fuse of the exact same value and type.You can bring the fuse to radio shack and they will help you locate the proper fuse. You can get a little pack of four for a couple of dollars. Also make sure you are getting power to the organ. Have you checked the outlet it is plugged into? Plug in a lamp or other device and make sure there is power to the outlet and the plug is in it securely. If you need more help feel free to ask me. I hope this was helpful....

Either the motor has blown or the resistor before motor contact is gone.

    Here you can find all Hammonds replacement parts, and ask consultancy on faults and parts needed.:Hammond Organ & Leslie Speaker Parts
    Regarding the fault, probably the motor has blown, in my old hammond there was also a variable resistor before the motor that blew up. You can check this out by accessing the motor.

    To get the fuse you need to take it apart, the fuse is in the power supply, where power cord hook in.

"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.

Generator has voltage drop, why?


Most of the small portable generators will depend on the engine speed to regulate the voltage. If the motor is at the correct speed you are getting 120 volts 60 hertz, if not it will read lower like 115 volts 55 hertz or so. This can be fixed by adjusting the governor, or idle speed needle.

I have a heart freedom20 inv. batt. chger that runs at 120 hertz .It does everything (charges switches etc.just fine bu the ac output is at 120 hertz instead of 60.


First check the voltage, if the voltage is good then check the hertz with a different meter because if the hertz went up to 120 everything onboard should have burnt out. The hertz works on the low voltage side of 120vac. before going to a repair shop first check the hertz meter. Good luck.

I don't know if you already solved the problem, but did you check what the maximum output power of your aircraft is? The nespresso machine needs about 1250 Watts, which is a lot of power. A vacuum cleaner or microwave use less power than that (maybe between 800 - 1000 Watts). Maybe that difference is the reason. Also, you mentioned that you converted from 220V 50Hz to 120V 60Hz. I think you only converted the voltage, a frequency converter would cost thousands of dollars.

How can i use Sony 5.1 Receiver STR-DG520 in India (120V to 230V)


Sorry, but according to Sony this set operates only on 120 volts at 60 hertz. As we have no real need for up converters here in the USA, I cannot recommend one for your application. The best course would be for you to visit one of your local electronics stores and provide them with the specific current requirements. I'm certain that an appropriate converter is available in your area.

I own a kenmore top loading machine model number 110 10 amp 60 hertz 120 volts the machine gets power and runs but the big control knob that controls the diffrent cycles is running only about 20 seconds...


sounds like you should replace timer (big control) timer motor is part of timer. Is timer knob speeding thru cycle that fast or just start/stop.
110 is manufacturer code for whirlpool, number after decimal is model number. tech sheet avail inside console by unsnapping left and right console covers and removing hidden screw at front bottom corners, pull forward slightly then fold console back (hinged at rear top).

Installing ge profile double oven not convection in new build trying to find out electrical requirements ( size breaker 50,60amp ?)


You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C.
208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz
electrical system. If you connect to aluminum
wiring, properly installed connectors approved
for use with aluminum wiring must be used.

That means that you ned a double 40 amp breaker.

sounds like the motor burned up. not sure if travel adapters will handle a large load like a motor, around 8 or amps. power needs in US are 110 volts ac, 60 hertz.
I believe UK is 220 volts and 50 hertz.
usually when a vac is brought to europe you must change motor.
