At our Technics keyboard club meeting this evening we had the opportunity to get round the back of a warm KN7000 and we learnt something very interesting...
At the back of the keyboard there is what looks like a hole into which you can place your hand. If you have a lively rhythm going at a reasonable volume on your KN7000 fanned air exudes from this hole in time to the rhythm...conclusions include...
a) There is a fanning system
b) It increases and decreases according to both volume and the liveliness of the musical style being played
c) It seemed to be sufficient to keep the KN7000 from overheating

NO! NO! a thousand times NO! That 'Hole' is the Bass Speaker port!! What you are feeling is the air being shifted by the cone of the Bass Speaker............

In a germanspeaking forum they are sure and certain there is a fan in the KN6000, as there was in the KN2000. Nobody is onehundred percent sure if yes or no there is one in the KN7000.

Bernie,

I no longer have a business card for the gent in Florida that repaired my 7000 and is authorized repair on all boards. Send him a link to this thread and he may shed some light on this mystery.

Fran, I kept the email you sent to me. It's Rick Lange in Ft. Meyers FL. I'll send him an email with this link.

Bob,

He is a great guy and will probably solve the heat and fan question.

Got a reply from Rick Lange today. I quote: "I have not heard about that problem of overheating." . . .

Like I said earlier, Rick mentioned to me that it was a little warm, but it likely would not cause a problem. That was more than a year ago, and it probably always got warm, but I never noticed.
