How would I go about getting this clock fixed?

How do I fix an anniversary clock from 2005 that runs on one AA battery. Recently replaced battery, it'll run for one day and then slow down, and eventually stop. The plastic battery box has the inscription HD-1688 SHENG BANG made in China on it. Any suggestions?

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

Mine does the same thing. I contacted the manufacturer and they told me there's nothing I can do to fix it. They suggested I return it if it's under warranty (which it isn't). With no warranty they said there is no way to repair it.

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

I have a howard Miller windable mantle clock 60 year anniversary how do I get it to run or who can fix it.

If you've had it for more than 3 or 4 years, and have not had it serviced, then it may be time. The movement, and springs need to be cleaned, and lubricated about every 5 years or so. You can search for Clock Repair in your general area on any search engine.
I happen to know for a fact there's a clock shop in Ashland City, Tn. Called Clockworks that works on just about anything.

There is a very fine spring wire which makes the pendulum go, they often break when people touch or spin them. Replacements are available. Best to get it done professionally, suspension springs shouldn't cost too much

Hi lufberg,

I see you need help with your radio controlled clock.

Place your Seth Thomas atomic clock face-down on a table or desk and locate a series of buttons labeled "PST," "MST," "CST" and "EST" on the back of the clock. Press the appropriate button to set the time zone.

Turn your attention to the small lithium battery-powered digital clock display on the back of your clock. With the correct time zone set, the digital display should accurately reflect the current local time.

Locate the AA battery compartment on the back of your clock. Put two new AA batteries into your clock's battery compartment.

Set the "Mode" switch on the back of your Seth Thomas atomic clock to "Run." Wait for it to adjust to the correct time. The automatic time-adjustment process can take up to 45 minutes, but is usually completed much sooner.

You do not have to set the clock time as a built-in automatic time set system ise quipped in this clock powered by 3V (2X AA batteries). All you have to do is to plug this clock for power and current time will be shown automatically.However, the batteries can also be exhausted and it is recommended that you replace the batteries every 2-3 years. Probably it is time to replace them.
You can set clock time manually also if you want.
