Stuck oscillators?

Postby annak on Sun Aug 31, 2008 1:34 pm


I'm trying to tune my Farfisa Fast 3 however the oscillators won't budge when I'm trying to turn them. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on this.

First: Are you absolutely sure you aren'tr adjusting the wrong oscillator card, and therefore not hearing a change?

I'd be super careful because of teh high risk of doing damage, correction, very high risk.

This might be wrong, but I'd think about using deoxit or contact cleaner to loosen them. Not much, just a drop.

Or, before doing that I might get a hairdryer and heat them up just a bit to see if thats oftens the gunk.

I'd also look closely and make sure i have an exact fit screwdriver. If it sticks, I might, as a very last resort, seat the screwdriver, and then attached a locking needlenose at right angles to the handle, high up, and give the gentlest of torque. But I'd hold my breath and do this very very gently.
