When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

SOURCE: I have a Seiko Westminster Whittingham Clock,

mcdevito75 here, I would figure the pendulum serves 2 purposes, 1 it acts like a seconds hand on a watch and 2 more important it acts a s a counter weight keeping the clock in Balance. It sounds like the Pendulum mechanism needs cleaning and or adjustment, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can advise you on a clock repair shop in your area, or you can always check with the repair service directory right here at fixya, bottom of page, click on repair service directory the watches / clocks.

To test your Seiko Melodies in Motion Clock:

1) Check the volume knob in the back of the Seiko clock to make sure the volume has not been adjusted all the way down.
2) Make sure the on / off switch is set to on.
3) If it is extremely dark in the room, the clock will not play, it has a light sensor. Make sure the room is well lit.
4) There are separate batteries usually that operate the clock and the music. Change the batteries paying special attention to any acid / corrosion caused by old batteries. Clean out any acid and it should play. Also, be careful not to touch the positive or negative contacts on the new batteries, as this could inhibit proper connection.

If you have done each step above and it is still not operating, your clock is defective. Contact Seiko Service Center directly at: 800-722-4452 extension 3.

If you have had the clock less than a year, and it was purchased from an authorized dealer, it is under warranty, and any repairs will be free. Otherwise, there may be a charge for the repair.

Clock keeps correct time but pendulum does not move


Either the battery for the pendulum drive is dead, or the collective circuit that drives the pendulum mechanism is faulty. If the clock takes only one battery you can be assured it is the pendulum drive circuit. takesin this case, you can find aftermarket pendulum accessories on Amazon and eBay.

Pendulum wont swing


Clock may either need to be decked out from the wall at the top, or pushed all the way up against the wall. These clocks have inexpensive quartz movements that aren't of the highest quality. If the clock is more than a few years old, it may be that the electromagnet that impulses the pendulum back and forth has just expired. You might try Clockit.com, or maybe Timesavers.com to find a replacement movement. Hope this helps, Good Luck

Pendulum does not move


Good details! Go to Timesavers.com
You can find a replacement pendulum unit there. Your pendulum mechanism probably has a bad coil. The coil is extremely difficult to repair.

The hour and minute hands do not move while the pendulum moves.


This sounds like a quartz clock movement. If your not using Duracell batteries do so.

Set chimes on qxh004blh seiko pendulum clock


The next time it gongs multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it chimes signaling 15 minutes after. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 3 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.

I have a Seiko Westminster Whittingham Clock, which keeps perfect time, but the pendulum won't swing for more than a couple of minutes. Does anyone know what's causing this? Bob

My pendulum seiko clock needs to be reset, it doen't chime in the hours correctly


The next time it gongs multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it strikes once. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 6 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.
