some notes will not come on true, the sound has varied tones, high and low pitches. Not on all keys, just the ones used the most. The manuals were cleaned approx. 15 - 20 years ago.

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

(I regret that I cannot offer Live Phone Call service myself at this time, but your request is still open to other Experts in this category, any of which may take it up instead.)

I don't think that being cleaned caused the problem, unless the cleaning was done with the wrong solvents or some similar inappropriate methodology.

It sounds to me as if simple aging has produced a serious defect in tone generation, whether it is by 'chips' or an integrated circuit, or by other means. Your Hammond will require a good repair specialist to look at it and determine the cause. If you will tell me your local zip code or town/city and state, I will look up listings and give you contact information for the nearest Hammon specialists to your location.
