No sound


I found mine was just making a clicking sound and no birds singing. changed batteries,all that synchronizing birds to time and nothing worked. Remove screws holding back on that are located around the ring area. carefully remove the glass,the hands, then the holding nut for the motor housing, remove face from clock assembly.There will be a wire going to the eye sensor for daylight/nighttime. Take a paperclip and jump the two solder points where the blue/black and yellow wire connect to the little circuit board (must have batteries in) and this resets the song feature. Not sure why this works, Simply reverse disassembly procedure making sure clock hands are unobstructed with each other and not bent, dont forget the seconds hand it's little and easy to forget to put back on.

Birds will sing only when you push the red button


The contact in the time movement isn't closing on the hour.

Our bird clock has started running fast, gaining about 17 minutes each day. Any idea how to fix this?


No fix, other than replacing the time movement, which is a switch movement that can be purchased at several different clock part supply stores, catalogs, or websites.

Why does my owl hoot at 10 instead of 12?


SETTING THE TIME: ( Remove all batteries before setting)
1. Turn the hand set knob in the rear of the battery compartment clockwise or counter clockwise to read 10 minutes before 12:00 o'clock (11:50)
2. Insert three " AA" batteries into the battery compartment
3. Now turn the handset knob clockwise to adjust the desired time.
Note: Each time the set test button"red" is pressed, this sets the birds melodies to the next hours bird. If pressed, you must follow the instructions above to reset properly or you will not hear the correct melody with the correct bird.

How to syncronize time with clock chimes? Howard Miller banjo clock.


The hands on your clock are probably friction fit, meaning that they can be adjusted, possibly even without tools. The hour hand is usually a firm slip fit over a tube, meaning that it can be slid forward and backward an hour or more as long as you hold the minute hand steady to keep the hour shaft from turning.
The minute hand may be trickier to adjust. Sometimes, it, too, is a simple friction fit, and you can pop off the hand (remove the second hand and pull the minute hand straight up off its shaft) before setting it where it should go. Other times, however, the minute hand is on a keyed shaft and has to go on in one of two directions. It's still possible that someone could have assembled your clock incorrectly, however, making the minute hand 30 minutes out of sync with your chimes.
If neither of these ideas helps you, please describe better exactly how the time isn't matching up with the chimes. That will help us better understand the underlying issue.

How to set the time on an Elgin Anniversary clock


If there is no special winder for clock hands at the back of clock movement, you have to adjust time by lifting the dome and moving hands by finger. Move MINUTE HAND ONLY clockwise until the desired time is set. In no circumstance touch hour hand.
