Updated by Adam Chlebek, who has heard or played the organ.
The most apparent problem is that the console\'s control system is fried, such that using pistons can sometimes cause the organ to go dead. One must turn the organ off and turn it back on, which gets in the way of playing during a Mass or a recital. Other than the problems with the console, the organ fully functions, and is used regularly.
