Re: Clock runs way to fast
CyberHome no longer has a valid website or phone number to call for assistance (I ran into this problem yesterday). You may be able to contact the retailer you bought the item from and they may be to assist you in contacting the manufactuer.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

If your cuckoo runs too fast or slow, the best way to correct this problem is to set your cuckoo to an accurate watch or clock. After 24 hours, record how many minutes your cuckoo is running too fast or slow. Then adjust the bob up or down the pendulum stick to change the pendulms effective length. You'll need to take an educated guess as to the distance. Reset the cuckoo minute hand time to your watch or clock again. Repeat this process every 24 hours, recording the results, and readjusting the bob until you are within 3 minutes of the correct time. Then, switch from recording every day to recording every week. Use the same process described, recording the time difference, adjusting the bob up or down every week, until the cuckoo is accurate within approximately 3 minutes per week. Remember, mechanical cuckoo clocks are not as accurate as quartz or electric clocks! A three minute error per week is not bad. Maybe you can do better. What you are attempting to do is to obtain is the best timekeeping possible from your cuckoo clock. Afterwards, you will still need to sychronize the cuckoo (coo coo) clock minute hand to an accurate clock or watch, each week or as desired.
CLOCK REGULATION TIPS FOR THE ROTATING REGULATOR These Regulations tips are useful for regulating the rotating regulator. This is to include most 400-day and 1000-day clocks. The following information is copied from SCHATZ (tm) OWNER'S HANDBOOK. Time Regulation Tip: On the top of the pendulum is a disk on which numbers are engraved 1 - 16 and two arrows marked F - S. The small indicator hand will be pointing to a number on the disk at which the clock was regulated before leaving the factory. Should you find it necessary to regulate the clock, observe the number to which the indicator hand points. The distance between each number is equivalent to 1/2 minute in 24 hours + or -. FRROM MY PERSONAL SHOP NOTES: If your clock loses two minutes per day [24 hours] and the indicator hand points to number 8 on the disk - move the disk in the direction of the arrow marked F until the indicator hand will point to number 1. NOTE: Before attempting adjustments to the regulator disk, first lock the pendulums by using the lever located on the front of the base. By so doing, you will avoid damage to the delicate suspension wire while turning the regulating disk. Keep A Regulation Record: Keeping a short Record of regulation and maintenance on your clock will make it much easier for you to keep it well with in its optimum time-keeping ability. We have found that using the guideline below helps. Date: +/- in min: How much adjust in Degrees +/-: Personal Notes: We recommend logging only the times the clock was wound, and any time the clock is regulated or reset. Times of regulation will include any time the clock has exceeded a 3 to 5 minute error. Use only ONE form of time references for this, a QUARTZ clock that is known for keeping good time is recommended. Over time you may find the clock needs only slight regulation; for example, if it has run for approximately 3 weeks and the error rate is under 3 minutes adjust regulator only slightly or simply RE-set. TEMPERATURE and SEASONAL CHANGES Temperature fluctuation can affect the time-keeping abilities of your clock. Never allow direct sun light to come in contact with your clock. This will over heat the clock and it will not only affect the time-keeping qualities, but also dry out the oil and cause premature servicing requirements. SPECIAL NOTES: REGULATION TENDENCIES It is very difficult to look at the hands of an analog clock and still determine if the clock is running correctly, therefore I recommend allowing the time error rate on the clock to remain UN-touched until the error rate has exceeded + or - 3 to 5 minutes. This is because 1 minute is very difficult to observe and calculate effectively. One little known fact about the Rotating Regulator: After the clock is restarted it can take up to 3 or 4 hours for the pendulum to settle down into regular beat rate. Example: If the pendulum is under rotated the clock will run fast and will take some time to bring it up to speed. If over rotated it will run slow. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE: Look at the actual clock time and reset it as closely as possible to real time after the clock has run for about 3 to 4 hours but don't disturb the pendulum. ONLY RESET THE CLOCK IF the actual clock time is off by 1 or 3 minutes. If you must reset the clock every 3 to 4 weeks, and it is FOR EXAMPLE always slow, Slightly RE-Regulate the clock to compensate for this rate of error. Simply reset the clock several times just to make sure that no mistakes are made. How to Calculate the Adjustment: Calculating how much to turn the regulating nut on the rotating pendulum by using the following calculations.

clocks are controlled by a small crystal device that has a set frequency. If the clock gains or looses time then the unit should be replace under warranty unless there is a small inbuilt screw that enables adjustment of the frequency. I say under warranty as Holdens have a 3 or 5 year warranty
Hold the 'Clock' button until the display flashes. It will first show
the year, next press on 'Clock' with show the month, then the day, then
the time. Use + and - to set your time and press 'Clock' again.
Don't expect this clock to set the time by itself. It is not an atomic clock.
Only if you want the clock to be accurate! Some of the clocks just run slowly (or fast)- it is pretty much normal. The clocks in my Fords do the same thing- have to set them about every 1 - 2 weeks to keep them within 1 - 2 minutes of the correct time.
Do you mean you set the correct time initially and then gradually got faster?There may be a reset button on it somewhere,no guarantee.It will probably be a small circle that doesn't look like anything.If there is,press it with a sharp pencil or something just as small.If not,it's just the nature of the beast.I have a radio which slows down over time...and it's a BOSE wave radio and have to adjust periodically!That's about all you can do is deal with it.Sorry if you can't fix it. Good luck!
I've noticed that manually setting the clock forward or back by any number of minutes, results in the same time offset being displayed after unplugging - plugging back in. So, if it's 9pm and you set if 5 minutes fast (9:05pm). Then unplug it and plug it back in 30 minutes later (9:30pm), the clock will maintain your setting of 5 minutes ahead of the actual time (9:35).
I like to set my clocks 5 minutes fast, just to make me always think I'm running a bit late (sure, maybe I'm a bit crazy). But this "sticky" manual setting is kind of a nice feature in my opinion. I'm wondering if it's not intentional?
Anyway, just manually set it back to the real time, and it sho
Turn the system on and press the "Clock/Timer" button (located above the eject button for Deck 1). The clock will appear. To change the time, simply hold down either the < or > buttons (the ones you use to change radio stations and begin CD/tape playback). Press "Clock/Timer" again to lock in the time.
I did not find my manual, but this worked for me. Set the clock to be a 24 hour clock by pressing and holding the Memory/Clock Adj button. The display will show 24h or 12h. Use the fast forward button to change from 12h to 24h. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again and use the fast or reverse forward buttons to change the time to read, for example, 13:00 instead of 1:00 if the time is 1pm. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again to set the minutes.When you are done setting the time, press and hold the Timer/Sleep button. Either a time or "0:00" will appear in the display with the word "TIMER" flashing above it. Quickly press and hold the Memory/Clock Adj button until the first digit in the time starts flashing. Set the hour that you wish the alarm to sound using the fast or reverse forward buttons, just like you do for setting the time. Press the Memory/Clock Adj button again to set the minutes, and one more time to finish. The word "TIMER" will stop flashing and go solid, and the display will return to the time of day. When the alarm sounds, you can hit Snooze which will give you 5 more minutes, or you can turn the Clock Radio off. Pressing the Timer/Sleep button again will turn off the timer (alarm) and pressing and holding it again after that will turn it back on.
