Customer Question
I can't get my...

I can't get my clock to work! and I love it and O love listening to it. Can you help me out?

Technician's Assistant: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Please tell me everything you can so the Clock Technician can help you best.

I wish I could send you a picture of it... It's a Hermie.

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else the Clock Technician should be aware of?

It was working fine until my daughter did something to it so it wouldn't chime because she claimed it would keep her up. She was visiting.
