Customer Question
I have an Alexis...

I have an Alexis 8 day strike wall clock. It was running fine but now it stops (pendulum) at two minutes to the hour. I can move the minute hand past the 12 and there is a click. I can restart the pendulum and it will work until two minutes before the next hour.

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. Is there anything else important you think the Clock Technician should know?

It was cleaned last year and has been working fine until last month.

HI, Thanks without seeing the clock at my repair shop I worked on a similar clock with the same problem and it turned out to be a slightly worn damaged tooth on the gear that drives the time train so when it comes around to that 2 minutes till the hour gets caught causing the clock to stop. Check this option out 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.
