    The first thing is to investigate if you are using the correct fuses. It is possible they are supposed to be MDL's that are delay fuses. The initial inrush current to charge the filter capacitors is likely what is blowing the fuses.</P>


    So first verify that the fuse replacements are the correct ones in size and time characteristics.</P>


    Also try this: Put a couple of parallel150 watt flood lights in series with the hot side of the power to the organ.and power it up with these at first, then rig a switch to short the bulbs out... PLEASE do the wiring for this in a safe manner. The lamps act as a resetable fuse for the initial inrush.</P>


    If there is a problem other than incorrect fuses, it is likely the power amplifiers are not balancing initially. This can be caused by parts aging.</P>
