Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am a Hammond certified technician. With a symp***** *****ke the lower keyboard is not working is usually caused by something not turned on. The problem is in order to help you I will have to have the model number so I can tell which organ you have. Almost every organ Hammond has built for the last 70 years has drawbars so that doesn't help any. If you can give me the model number I will try my best to help. The model number tag can be under the keyboard, on the back near the bottom, on the back near the top, or inside where you have to take the back off to find it.

I would like to make sure I understand the situation. The organ has not worked for a year. And all I get is 5 minutes to answer your question?
