Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. There are several options that might be wrong first there might be a loose or damaged tooth on one of the gears that when the clock makes the revolution to the next hour it gets caught at that same point every hour. Next there might be a piece of foreign debris that when it gets to that same point every hour it also causes the clock to stop. Your best start would first be maintenance as a clock ages the oils and lubricants become gummy and the movement starts slowing down and then finally come to a stop or it may become dry and the same problem may happen so it may need cleaning and oiling as they should about every 3 to 5 years. To save my customers money from me servicing there clock I recommend one of the best cleaning kits available it covers cuckoo clocks as well it comes with a step by step downloadable E BOOK and they ship worldwide I have told countless customers from around the world that have used this kit to service there clocks themselves. A good cleaning and re oiling job will add life and enjoyment. Just click the link below if it will let you if not go to google.com and type the link on the google search bar. When the page comes up go to clock tools cleaning and oiling or go to the search line type in clock cleaning E book when that page comes up scroll down to clock cleaning kit then click view page. I would try cleaning and re oiling the movement first and start there. If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself I can find a clock repair shop in your area just let me know your location in Bahrain and I will locate one for you. Try these option out and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike
