    Hi

    I live in the Pittsburgh Pa area and looking for someone to repair my Baldwin Organ.

    Several years ago it made a very loud bang and has not worked since. 

    Does anyone know of someone in my area that could come and tell me if it will be worth fixing.

    Thanks

    You probably have the answer by now but the Baldwin organ model number is under the top lid.  Most often they are unhooked to allow the volume control to be accessed.

    I HAVE A BALDWIN ORGAN ,MODEL ORGA-SONIC ? AND IT IS THE ONLY TEXT I CAN FIND ON IT. I AM A RESELLER AND HAVE PEOPLE ASK ME THE MODEL NUMBER AND I TELL THEM IT'S THE ORGA-SONIC. I LOOKED ALL OVER FOR ANOTHER MODEL NUMBER . THIS ORGAN CAN BE SEEN OAT THE CRAIGSLIST LINK BELOW. MAYBE YOU COULD TAKE A QUICK LOOK. MAYBE YOU KNOW THE MODE; NUMBER. MAYBE YOU INTERESTED IN IT YOURSELF? LIMK= https://accounts.craigslist.org/post/shwpst?pii=1394537192&db=lv

    Hi there, The model 51 was built in 1959. The Model 54A was built in 1963. The 5 year spread could mean some significant changes in the schematics. However, if your are versed in vacuum tube technology, either vintage should be fairly intuitive. I am curious about your comment on the innerworks being all electronic. The vacuum tube divider technology (of both models) requires the use of vacuum tubes which can easily be removed and tested for strength and for shorts. A tube tester will be required for this. Someone you know of who works on old radio equipment should have one of the testers. If not, try contacting http://www.mitatechs.com/index.html for help. Most tubes are readily available nowadays and can be ordered from many sources on the internet such as http://www.vacuumtubesinc.com/audionew.html. The major issue with older equipment will be the electrolytic capacitors. They do have a life expectancy and will likely require replacement if they haven't been used regularly. Because their electrochemical polarization is maintained with use, their life expectancy is diminished with non-use. They can go bad in two ways: 1) is to develop resistance which creates heat which can draw undue heavy current from the transformer and blow fuses. Capacitors should always run cool. If you find one that is running hot, replace it! The other possibility is the capacitors can simply open. When this happens, the capacitors can pull themselves out of the circuitry. This creates a significant problem with whatever circuit they are supposed to be working in...particularly the ripple filter circuit in the power supply which results in a loud 120 Hz hum. It is also likely you may have a bad rectifier, so make certain to check it as well.
