Piano, Organ, and Keyboard/tuning an electronic organ

Question
My church has an Ahlborn Galanti Praeludium organ and was 20 years old.
It is out of pitch (higher for all keys compare to piano). Please advise how to tune it ourselves due to no expertise technician around our area. We have no wiring diagram either.
thank you very much,
johnny

Answer
Hello Johnny,  I don't see many Galanti organs, but from what I recall, there is a small panel of controls underneath the keyboard desk. One of which is a tuning control.  If this is not the case on your instrument, contact me again and I will describe the procedure within the console.
