    Conn 628

    Hello, I have Conn Deluxe Rhapsody 628 - type 4. I am looking for an owners manual(for repairing). I am having problems with pedals. In the lowest octave they all sound like the lowest C, the D next to it has a problem with the brass part in the front when you remove the pedals it is hanging down. Also what is the best way to clean the contacts. I am new to this site and trying to learn how to maneuver through it looking for answers. Thank you for any suggestions or answers you have.

    There's a specific forum section for requesting service manuals, so please repeat the request there as well. I'll leave this thread open for anyone to answer your pedals problems queries.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

    Thank you, I have just signed up here today and still learning. Where do I find this specific forum section for requesting a service manual. I am also trying to add a picture of the pedal area and not understanding how to do that.

    I just took off the back and is very dusty. Can you use canned air to clean that away?

    You found this section, so just keep scrolling down past the Pipe Organs and Organists section and you'll see it - Schematics and Service Literature Wanted.

    Canned air will just move it around. Can be useful for certain areas thought. A gentle dab with a small, soft paintbrush while holding the hose from a vacuum cleaner nearby is probably the best method.

    The leaf spring on the D pedal switch actuator is broken. Repairing it will require the removal of the entire pedal generator assembly. If Organ Service Corp. can't be reached or they don't have the part, you can move an actuator from the top end of the pedals to the D position.
    The service manual does not have disassembly instructions so it won't help you in this situation. The amplifier and Leslie must be removed to gain access to the screws holding the pedal generator in place.

    I played one of those for many years until it started producing thunder through the speakers. I don't know anything about disassembly but mine would sometimes play only the C in the lower octave. You can take the wood cover off of the pedal board and there are some screws you can turn to adjust the pedals. I think tightening them up will keep the pedals from sounding when they aren't supposed too. I may be wrong but that was more than 10 years ago.
