SOURCE: anniversary train clock; clock does not work

It's not the motor it's the unit in the middel that works the clock it self. I have the same problem. When the clock passes the hour it is supose to send a signal to start the motor. There are two tiny pices metal that are supose to contact each other on the hour and they break off easy.

You have to replace the clock unit and reconect the two black wires.

Try by passing it. The two black wires that come from the clock unit. Cut them and touch them together. Make sure the light sencer on the front is not covered.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Elgin Westminster Quartz Chime clock won't work

IF I GATHER CORRECTLY , YOUR CLOCK HAS TWO BATTERIES, ONE AT BASE AND ANOTHER ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT. THE ONE ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CLOCK'S FUNCTIONALITY AND I THINK THE BATTERY AT BASE IS FOR THE ROTATING BALLS ( PENDULUM ). SO OPEN UP THE BACK IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, AND REPLACE THE BATTERY. CAREFULLY THOUH AS THERE RE TWO SCREWS ON TOP AND A SNAP AT CENTER BOTTOM WHICH YOU COULD EASILY BREAK IF YOU DO NOT DO IT WITH CARE. OPEN UP THE SCREWS FIRST AND GENTLY USING A SCREW DRIVER PUSH BACK ON THE SNAP HOLE TO FORCE IT UPWARDS AND INWARDS. IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE THEN WE ARE LOOKING AT TWO DIFFERENT CLOCKS.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

SOURCE: I have a WALTHAM DOLPHIN

The actual Waltham company went under in 1954 or 1955 I'm not sure who is actually making these. Good news is if you contact your local Sears store they do sell these exact model clocks. Usually someone in the department will just open a box and look at the manual for you. They may even have a spare one or be able to let you know how to get one.

How to fix the pendulum on an elgin quartz anniversary clock


I am unsure wha you mean by "fix the pendulum". If you mean it stopped swinging, there are two reasons: first check the battery and contacts. Remember, even a new battery can be bad, which is why new things come with warranties. The other thing is quartz movements usually don't last too long. If the pendulum is not swinging, and is correctly attached to the movement and the battery is good, then the movement has gone bad and you need a new one. Most all clock shops keep quartz movements on hand. If you are a do-it-yourself type, you can get them off the Internet. Be sure to remove the old one first and check how thick the dial is, that's how they sell them by dial thickness.

I need to find a quartz movement replace for a EMIL SCHMECKENBECHER W. GERMAN ZEUS MANTEL/DESK CLOCK 12406


Daniel,

You have a collector piece. Please do not damage it with a quartz movement.
That being said, I understand your wish to have a working, accurate time piece but think about this action.
...But here is an example of your choice:
Quartz Clock Movement Module Mechanism No Battery Powered Silently Black

It uses a AA battery (sold separately).

easiest way to set clock time. Remove AA battery's if installed.
Unplug Clock from AC. Wait a few seconds. Then replug clock into AC power. Clock will now flash 12:00. Press hours button until correct time is set PM has led on AM has Led off. Set minutes to correct minutes. Then press alarm reset / power/mode button. Wait a few seconds and display will show correct time. Now you can put the AA batteries back in.

Equity model 29002-1


Anon, replace battery with a good strong AA Energizer or Duracell Alkaline not a cheap battery, make sure battery contact point in clock are clean and no corrosion. If this does correct the problem, the clock mechanism is probably just wearing out from age which is normal unless it is digital. Read through the links and learn how some time mechanisms can be made to work properly again. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Howard Miller Christopher Quartz mantel clock chime adjustment


Try pulling the batteries out, set the clock to 5:45 then put the batteries back in. Set the time to 6:00 and count how many times it strikes. If it strikes 6 then your good. If it strikes a different number say 5, take the batteries back out, and set the clock to 4:45 then put the batteries back it, set clock to 5 and count the strike. Most quartz clocks reset their chimes to 5:00 when new batteries are installed regardless of the time shown on the face. I hope this helps. Good Luck.
