Customer Question
My wall clock of...

My wall clock of 25 or years has quit .Ser No, 42130365 Can the mechanism be replaced?

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 included the set No. I DON'T want to throw tis wall clock away!

Technician's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Clock Technician should know?

It's round and the white of the clock face is solid oak with an inner ring colored gold. with a simple plastic mechanism recessed into the back.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I get this a lot in my clock repair shop with the same symptoms and yes the movement can be replaced. I'll cover all options to try. First make sure the battery contacts are clean. Next check the battery contacts to see if the wires are loose or has come disconnected. The manufacturer states that their clocks work best with Duracell batteries. Next the bad thing about these quartz movements is that they are encased in plastic and can not be opened to work on them to gain access to the circuit board or the plastic gears that run the hands, it is cheaper to replace the movement yourself than to bring the clock to a repair shop because that is what they will do and that is what I tell my customers that come into my shop to save them money. They are easy to replace and are very inexpensive. If the options above do not work and you decide to replace the quartz movement yourself you can order your part from one of the companies I use to order parts from just give them the make and model of your clock or the movement number which should be located on the back of the movement and 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.
