Hi Margie, My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you. First make sure the battery contacts are very clean and there are no loose wires leading out from the battery cartridge then use a fresh set of batteries and see if it will start. If the clock doesn't start the movement has gone bad and you can't really work on them you usually just replace them. It is cheaper to replace the movement yourself then to bring it to a clock repair company because that is what they will do. The movements are easy to replace and are inexpensive. You can order your part from one of the companies I use to order parts from they are all quite reliable.The phone works the best for ordering your parts. Just give them the make and model of your clock and the movement number which should be located on the back or side of the movement. Thanks Mike
