SOURCE: Setting the correct time on Seth Thomas clock.

Correct technique definitely is CLOCKWISE ONLY. You are unbelievably lucky person if did not damage striking mechanism within 25 years while adjusting hands anti clockwise. If I'd have such a luck, I'd try to play lottery. :))

SOURCE: seth thomas autoset wall clock not functioning.

I wish I had a solution... I'm in the exact same situation. I put in new batteries, and all I get is a faint reading of gibberish from the LCD screen, and that's it. I've tried following the instructions, but I can't set the time in the LCD clock, since it's unreadable, and almost completely gone. Seththomas.com has a web page indicating that "they will be back with info", but no support or FAQ pages. Disappointing... I have three of these clocks, and they are all behaving the same way.

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.

I'm afraid you have to visit clock repair shop, as without close inspection it is not possible to say what's wrong with your clock.

SOURCE: we have a Acctim barrery

Press the red button at the back and go through all the hourly chimes until you get to the next chime due i.e. if its 3.15 whebn your doing this, only go through the chimes until 3 o'clock and no further. Then turn the hands clockwise ONLY never anticlockwide and she should be fine.

Seth Thomas wall clock with pendulum that runs, but won't tell time. Replaced batteries Stopped working when knocked off the wall & fell straight down to the floor. Any hope, without major expense?


likely - if it was an expensive clock - you may want qualified, trained, experienced clock repairman to work on it - take it to one, and ask for estimate.

I have a Dakota Daniels grandfather clock. The chimes work, the pendulum works, but the clock hands don't move.


Change the batteries. The weight makes the pendulum and chimes work, but the clock in this thing is battery operated :>)

    Bulova wall clock hands won't move


    I haven't much experience of this type of clock. A friend has such a quartz pendulum clock and I was surprised to discover the pendulum has no direct mechanical contact with the clock motor and as long as the motor draws some current from the battery the pendulum will swing due to the resulting influence of a small electromagnet.

    I guess the quartz mechanism is at least electrically ok but somewhere there is a mechanical fault preventing the hands moving.

    A typical quartz clock motor is fairly simple and dismantles easily to reveal only a few internal parts that can be examined under a magnifier to determine the probable fault - dust, burrs or excessive wear.

    It is also worth making certain the clock hands do not bind on each other or the clock face.

    Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime


    I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
    *Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
    *Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
    If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.
