Clock pendleun wont set time

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.

Hi Mike, its a Howard Miller model #610-603, movement is a 1161-853, 114 CM, SN#306308493., The original pendulum wont set the time. The round disk (BOB) will slide up and down on the pendulum freely , but wont set the right time. It still louses about 10 seconds ever 5 minute, no matter where the bob is at, your welcome to call me if need be.(###) ###-#### Any help would be greatly appreciated ' Thank you so much...John Cowden, Bullhead City AZ. PS IM sure its a mechanical movement.

Hi John, Yes that is a ​Howard Miller Curio model and has a large lyre pendulum. If you can not get the pendulum set to the right speed even by turning the rating nut under the BOB then the pendulum assembly will need to be reset by a clock technician. I get this quite often at my repair shop when there is such a large pendulum they seem to work there way out of sync. Next would be maintenance these movement should be serviced every 3 to 5 years meaning cleaned and re oiled to stay in top running condition. I listed the closest authorized Howard Miller repair shop below. Try these options out and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike
