Anniversary train clock; clock does not work

I need a motor to run the clock for a Lionel anniversary clock. The second hand only jumps in place and does not go around the clock face. The motor measures approx. 2-1/4" long, approx. 1-1/2" tall, and 1/2" wide. The writing on the motor shows HD 1688 Sheng Bang No (0) jewels unadjusted. The back left side has a black turning stick and further left of that is the on/off switch. The front has a large white turning stick and wire hookups. Is it possible to get this piece?

    Hi! I'm having the same problem with my lionel train clock. Everything works except there's a click to start the train but nothing happens. I'm presuming that the motor isn't kicking in. If you find a fix for this would you mind contacting me so I can repair the clock? I'll be glad to do the same if you furnish your email address. Mine is Thanks!

    My Lionel clock is having the same problem. The train won't go around the clock and it appears to be the motor. I'd also like to know where to locate a new motor for it. Thanks

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

Replace belt on 397

Many toy train part suppliers have the replacement belt. It does require some dismantling to replace the belt. Tip wrap a layer of package tape where the belt runs not over the lower pulley but along the path of the belt, it helps prevent coal bits from jamming in there. Once you have replaced the belt and have reassembled the unit NEVER use anything other than Lionel 206 Coal or its latest incarnation. Other materials are either too heavy or too fine and will jam the mechanism.

Lionel train desk lamp not working consistantly.

There are 6 rubber foot pads that under each one is a screw. I had the same problem and we found out that there were screws under the rubber foot pads. Once we were done we glued the rubber foot pads back on the lionel lamp. (Lionel Train Desk Lamp)

New bright santas christmas express no, 187 train wont smoke

This goes back about 40 years for me. Both Lionel and TYCO had "smokers" in their train sets. My recollection was that the "special smoke oil" was a mixture of very highly refined kerosene and parafin wax. Try a hobby shop such as Hobby Town or some such.

I have a complete Lionel Electronic Control train but the automatic coal car does not work. Can it be repaired?

Yes it can be fixed. Does the transmitter work? I am asking if other cars and the locomotive respond to the transmitter ECU-1. The dump car is a little different from the other cars as you need to hold the button down for several seconds to get it to dump momentatrily to uncouple. There is a thermostatic time delay as part of this car's receiver.<br /> Look it up in the old Lionel Service manual (original or Greenberg reprint) or the Greenberg operating guide (small thick hardbound book)<br /> <br /> Ed

Need help setting up Lionel North Pole Central Christmas Train 6-30068--how do I attach the transformer to the track? It is on O gauge track and is transformer that came with set. Our manual is lost and...

I had the same dilema and trains are not new to me. Look under the piece of straight track that has a notch in it for the wiring. There will be a clip to hold the wire and a piece of plactic that looks like a block. One either side of that is a metal tab that one end of the wiring slides over. Actually each piece of the Fastrack has one of these. Only one has a notch but you can notch any one.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".
