I have had my Howard Miller clock since1988 and it has stopped . I can start the pendulum and it will swing for about five minutes and stop.

Pendulum stopped and will not swing. The clock has not been moved. I can start the pendulum and it will swing for about five minutes and stop. What is wrong?

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

I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and the clock is keeping time but pendulum is barely moving. What's the problem?


Hi Pam,
I have a Howard Miller Grandfather clock and the pendulum swings very slowly and from far left to far right travels only about three inches at best. It doesn't need to move any more than that to make the "Verge" move the "Escape Wheel" to rotate the gears to keep the hands moving at the correct tick.

Just bought a Howard Miller 620-160 wall clock. The pendulum is not swinging! What is wrong?


First thing to check is for locks that are put in when shipping so that it wont be damaged. If it is battery powered, check the battery.

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.

Bakelite antique mantle clock just bought, but no instructions of how to get it going. Ive got the key and pendulum but dont know how to set it up. Can you help?


First you have to wind up your clock using the key supplied. The pendulum suspension spring should start to swing quite fast. Stop it swinging with your fingers and hook up the pendulum. When done, push the pendulum to whatever side and release it to start the swing - the clock should start ticking in normal order. If there is no special bar on the back of clock movement for adjusting hands, then hands must be adjusted from the dial side by moving minute hand clockwise. Move the minute hand with your finger clockwise to the desired time, at the same time do not catch hour hand, as this may end up with the incorrect time displayed. Rate me, plz.

Changed battery and now pendulum wont swing. Clock doesn't operate at all. All was fine until I changed the battery.


Give the pendulum a shove and do it every time you pass the clock. I got mine going from swinging for just 20 seconds to working permanently, at least until the next battery change.

What ports wind what?


On mine, the center one (@the 6 position) is the one that keeps the pendulum swinging. It is the one that lengthens the most during the week and if I forget to wind it, that pendulum is all the way down when the clock stops.
