Hi Joan, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I'll try to give you all options to try. First when was the last time the clock was serviced meaning the movement cleaned & re oiled they should be done every 3 to 5 years?. From the clock when wound to tight what happens is that the old gummy oil inside the coils of the mainspring start sticking together not allowing the mainspring to release the power to run the clock. Try these option out and let me know what happens if you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself if you want I can find a clock repair company in your area just let me know your zip code location and by what major cities and I'll find a few in your area. Thanks Mike
