Hi Ray,

Thanks for your question and for coming to Just Answer!

I apologize for your wait thus far! Apparently this question went into the wrong category in the beginning and just now made it to me in the right category.

In regards XXXXX XXXXX organ, it sounds as if you have an issue with the internal electronics rather than a simpler issue with key contacts. If it were just a few keys here and there that weren't working I would suggest cleaning or replacing the contacts, but with large sections being affected your issue is going to be a bit more difficult. Without being there to personally test the organ and take it apart I can't pinpoint your exact issue, but can say that with these older organs, things like this aren't rare as the organs are affected by numerous moves, climate and age. I would suggest you contact a technician who can come out to your house and repair the organ. Check out and click on "Find a servicer near you" at the bottom left. The folks that work for this company are great and come highly recommended from different organ companies who don't have their own in-house technicians. They have a great deal of experience working on these instruments.

In my professional opinion, it would a good idea to have one come out and visually inspect the organ so they could give you a better idea of what the issue is and correct it.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if I can assist you further!

If you need more information, please press REPLY so I can help you further. If I have been able to answer your question, please press ACCEPT as that is the only way I am compensated for my time and research. Positive feedback is very beneficial to me and, if you are able to take a minute once the process is over to leave some I would greatly appreciate it. If you have reason to leave less than positive feedback, please contact me first so I can ensure you are properly assisted with your question. Thanks and best wishes!

Hi Mr Taylor

i appreciate you reply but my expectation is if you can give me some pinpoint

problem area so that I can do the repair job by myself. FYI this GULBRENSEN

organ was given to me by friend of mine and I don't wish to spend too much money

to fix it.

Can you give me your fair opinion how much I shouls pay your time?

Best Regards

Thanks for your reply, Ray.

These older organs, irregardless of maker, aren't worth too much (most just a few hundred dollars) but repairs can be sometimes expensive. I am not a repair technician so I couldn't tell you what your exact problem is--however, even if I was, the organ must be seen in person to determine what exactly is wrong with it, and what, if any, parts are needed. I would recommend contacting the folks at the website I gave you and asking about prices. The technicians at MITA are all independent so they set their own prices. I would think most would offer a low-cost, if not free estimate for repairs, and if it was something you felt comfortable doing, they might be able to guide you through the process without too much of a charge.

Please reply if I can help further. Thanks!
