If the keys feel sticky, clean gently with soft cloth wetted with Windex. If you mean the keys stick down we have no idea of what brand or type of piano you have and there is no way we can help you without more information.

C key is sunken down. The hammer action counterbalance isn't working properly


Check it again. It may have something dragging on the key, maybe something sticky like soda or juice residue. You can also try swapping out the key with another C or F key that is less used. Good luck!

We bought this upright piano for our daughter to learn on but I can't seem to find any info on it. Serial number 23930. Any info would be fabulous. Thank you.


Remove the front of the piano. Remove the middle C key complete from it mounting pin. You may find the production date and its full service history written in pencil on the side of that key. A piano tuner told me this after I told him that I had removed all the keys to clean them and I was surprised to see the whole history. It said it was standard practice.

Here is some other information.

How do I fix a stuck piano key on a upright home piano


You'll likely need to try removing the keys, so you can see if something is stuck underneath it. That would be my first move.
In order to do this, follow these steps:

The front panel and the keyboard fall are designed to be easily removed for tuning purposes anyway.

To check it out....The front panel likely has a little clip either side near the top on the inside. Just undo these clips and lift the panel out. The keyboard fall should then be easy to lift out too.

There may be a long wooden rail which you need to take out also. Once inside, the keys themselves can be carefully lifted off the central spikes on which they sit.

Remember how you did this so you can get them back in again.

Since your piano is so old and worn, Often times, the wooden rail in front of the keys (just above your knees when you are playing) bows inwards a little due to age and temperature/humidity fluctuations. This then causes the little white front bit of the keys to jam against the wood and you have to physically lift the keys back up to return them.
If this is the problem you will need to take out the keys and shave some wood off the inside of this rail to allow the keys to move up and down freely again.
Or sometimes you may find you have a small object caught under a key or two. Much simpler to remove and free up your keys, if this is your problem..
Hopefully, this is all you will find wrong with your piano.
If all else fails...
I wouldn't attempt to tune your piano by yourself. I would seek out an experienced piano tuner for that.
But it is worth attempting to repair it first before you go that far.
Good luck !!
