I have a circa 1850 welsh grandfatehrs clock I just purchased. When setting it up somehow I lifted the small arm that the pendulum fits through

To about 2 oclock and it locked in that positio! How can I get it back to the normal 6 oclock (vertical) position ?

SOURCE: Frozen ejector arm

sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.

SOURCE: tone arm comes out and touches record, then goes back to cradle

See what kind of arm position sensing elements are used in your turntable (micro switches, optics or possibly other) and check if they work correctly - sometimes a microswitch can be damaged or have oxydized internal contacts or a badly soldered / broken wire and it will not function properly, causing the unit to stop automatically, the same might happen if the sensor is of optical type and there is some dust or broken wires or if the emmiter or sensor is damaged. Also, it could be a problem with the part that activates the switch / optics, it might be displaced or damaged.

If all sensors / switches seem to work well, then check the section which has wires going to those sensors / switches, it's the next probable location of the fault (it might be an electronic controller so there could be damage to some components, broken wires, dirty connectors or bad solder contacts).

It could as well be something else in the mechanisms, wiring or electronics, i just suggested a few things that might cause the malfunction you described.

Hope you can get it fixed.

Where can I get information and pendulum for Ridgeway spring driven clock serial number 374221?


You need to determine what type of movement it is first. Ridgeway used movements from Hermle and other manufacturers. Once you have identified the movement we can sort out the pendulum. The following article will show you how to determine the pendulum length: How To Determine Clocks Pendulum Length

Bulova wall clock hands won't move


I haven't much experience of this type of clock. A friend has such a quartz pendulum clock and I was surprised to discover the pendulum has no direct mechanical contact with the clock motor and as long as the motor draws some current from the battery the pendulum will swing due to the resulting influence of a small electromagnet.

I guess the quartz mechanism is at least electrically ok but somewhere there is a mechanical fault preventing the hands moving.

A typical quartz clock motor is fairly simple and dismantles easily to reveal only a few internal parts that can be examined under a magnifier to determine the probable fault - dust, burrs or excessive wear.

It is also worth making certain the clock hands do not bind on each other or the clock face.

Coaster model 900723 grandfather clock doesn't keep time


Everybody should know that the coaster clocks discussed here run on batteries. The timing mechanisms, the chimes as well as the pendulum all are powered by a battery. Changing the speed of the pendulum is impossible because there is no adjustment. Besides, it wouldn't matter anyway. The pendulum has now affect on the clock's ability to keep accurate time. It is purely aesthetic. This is a pretty cool looking clock and even has weights, but those are also purely aesthetic and do not move the way a classic grandfather clock weight would move. The moments with these clocks are not designed to be worked on. These clocks are relatively inexpensive (approximately $300) but do add a nice look to your home. Grandfather clocks snobs would say though; this is not a true timepiece. They're right... Sorry._1513.jpg

I do not know how to start the clock : Clock under glass. Has three balls supposed to swing. I replaced the battery.


Lift the glass and swing the pendulum/balls. Or you could, if it's small enough to hold in your hand, suddenly twist it, there by using inertia to swing the pendulum.

Does anyone know where to get a replacement 'movement' for the Michael Graves's Alessi mantle clock.


Yep - I know a clock repairman in California who still has some of the original Hechinger Quartz Movements for the Alessi pendulum clock . Definately worth repairing .
