Moog Prodigy modulation wheel help

Post by Raptor » Sun Sep 20, 2020 8:32 am

Hey there, I’ve got a Prodigy that is in excellent condition. Everything functions properly except the mod wheel just got really tight, and is having trouble moving up and down with fluidity and ease and won’t modulate as it used to

The mod wheel does not hit it’s center notch like it used to, it seems like the notch got bumped out of alignment and is causing the mod wheel to move very tightly up and down

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Thank you!

I think you'll have to open it up and take a look before anyone can suggest with certainty.

I had the same issue, has come up twice now. I just took off the bottom plate and sprayed deoxit into the mod wheel pot and worked it in there real good. I don't know if the pot is going bad or what, but has happened twice in the last 4 months or so. Seems to be working fine now.
