  • Hammond M-3 Tone Generator Stuck?

    Hi All, First post here. I recently purchased an M3 and I’m having trouble with the TG. I’ve finally got the tone wheel freed up, but the wheel next to the motor won’t budge when I turn on the run switch. Even when I release the run motor wheel springs from the flywheel it won’t turn. I know that the motor is working, because I can feel the magnetic pull on the wheel when I turn it. I’m very new to this, so I apologize for the ignorance here, but should I just keep oiling it?

    Hi Dvdmen. Welcome to the Organ Forum! Lots of interesting people here with all kinds of knowledge and experience.

    As a newbie, it can be tricky to navigate in a new place. There are specific forums here that will put your request where more people will see it, which is why I've made the following suggestion.....

    Admin/Moderator - If this thread were moved to a more appropriate forum, I'm guessing that it offer Dvdmen more responses.

        Dvdmen, nothing done wrong. We all learn as we go. As you get more familiar with the website, you'll figure out which forum is best for which questions.
