    Old Kimball is Having Issues

    I am having trouble with the diapason stop. If I pump the organ hard enough, the low A plays on it's own. I have already taken the organ apart and can't find any reason as to why it's doing that. I also don't know how to tune the reeds (I need all the help I can get rn). The organ is a Kimball model 711 (I think... not sure if that will help though).

    A cipher at higher vacuumight be a weak pallet spring, might be the felt and leather valve seat is beginning to fall, might be a crack in the sound board under the affected reed. All of these things are easy to repair, some just take more time than others.

    Pictures would help, probably.
