I have an older...

I have an older clock, Model 38229-1 and need an owners manual and it won't switch off of DST.

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.

Model 38229-1, need owners manual and it won't switch off off DST

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

Not that I can think of.
