How old is your Hammon Model M?
Also may I have the Full molde # so I can assit you correctly?
And what tube and why the replacment etc?
Thank you for that info.
Ok, you need to open the unit further and find out what component actually smoked so I can be sure of what needs replacement. It may not be just the part that smoked. If you aren't handy electronically and aren't well versed in Digital multi-meter operations, then you will need to look up a vintage organ repair tech, they have people who can come out to you for this ;-)
I wish I had better news for you on this, I really do. Im sure the tubes are fine as they dont cause this issue, likley a bad shorted capacitor.
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
Please rate my service kindly.
