Have an older Lowrey organ with loud hum.


Of course it is repairable.

Find a competent repair person. You did not describe the "noise". If it is 60 cycle hum, the filter caps need replacing. If it is an organ tone, then probably a key contact is stuck.

Turn on the organ and get a loud hum.......


Chances are you're hearing "60-Hertz" hum that comes from poor filtering in the organ power supply. Electronic circuits need direct current (DC) but our power lines supply alternating current (AC). The power supply converts the AC to the various DC voltages needed. Parts called filter capacitors smooth out the voltage, and if they go bad or lose contact because of bad connections the result can be the hum you're hearing.

There are other possible causes, but the filtering is so common it's a good place to start. You don't give the age of this organ, but if it's one that has been around a while, it's a good bet some of those capacitors are worn out.

If you can post a follow-up with a make and model, I'll check some of the technician groups and see if anybody has service information.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
