You may call Bulova customer service at 1-800-233-3350 they are usually open 9 until 4 eastern time. It may just be a setting or you may need the battery movement replaced. I hope this helps you!

Bulova mantel clock won't keep time. New batteries and will chime. It's about 25 years old at least.


Try CAREFULLY cleaning the mechanism with naphtha lighter fluid. Lighter fluid is high grade naphtha. Be careful not to allow it to run on to the face and electronics. It may damage the face with stain or remove any decals or cemented numerals. It may only take a small amount to clean the shaft bearings. The lighter fluid cleans and lubricates without leaving a film. If you can, while the fluid is on the gears, manually turn the clock forward 12 hours. That will rotate all the gears fully. Us the fluid sparingly!

The clock runs fast , 20 plus minutes a day... Is there an adjustment and or how do I deal with this problem? Mantel 8 day clock. Thanks Ron


mcdevito75 here, There should be a F/S on the back of the clock, if so place it in the middle, if not, check out a small watcg repair shop in your area.

The pendulum stopped swinging...the clock and chimes work well


Hi
This clock short of needing a full service may simply be out of beat.

Taken from my web page located at:
http://antiqueclock.clockstop.com/CLOCK_BEAT.htm

"HOW TO PUT YOUR CLOCK IN BEAT"
-Included below is a 10-second sound <snip> of a clock both in and out of beat.

leval.jpg notleval.jpg
IN BEAT ////////\\\\ OUT OF BEAT
· Turn on your sound and click on the clocks above for a sound clip.

-One little known fact is that a clock does not have to be level to be in beat. I had a customer that had a mantel clock in an old farm house, it was brought in for repairs and sent back running great just one problem: I put the clock in beat on a level surface [a small problem] because the mantel it had set on for it's entire life was not level. I had to literally go to the house to put it in beat where it sat.
-I have often found most Grandfather or floor clocks are set up out of level and put in beat where they stand, This is fine.
-As I'm sure we now realize a clock must be in beat but not always level to function properly.

· Above is the verge with a slip clutch.
· Often found on Grandfather clocks and requires only a long swing to get it in beat.

-To get the clock on the right side in beat you would need to push the verge assembly to the left.
-If it must be bent to put it in beat, do it slightly, but don't bend any of the suspension parts.

How to set time on a bulova marine star 96C30


For some reason you cannot find the manuals on the Bulova web site any longer. But don't worry....
I have the manual for the Bulova Marine Star 96C30 Watch. This is easily fixable.
Below, I have typed the instruction on how to fix this issue as well as reset the time and calendar and a few extra tips in case you forgot....

Here is what it says to do if the hands don't match up with the display time (usually happens after you change the battery).
First, you must locate the buttons on the watch.
The "A" button is at the 2 o'clock position (upper right). The "B" button is at the 10 o'clock position (upper left) The "C" button is at the 8 o'clock position (lower left) The "M" (mode) button is at the 4 o'clock position (lower right), and is the only button you can pull out to set the times, calendar and programming.
To RESET the watch and do the ZERO POSITIONING after changing a battery or having a display error, do the following.
RESET 1. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 2. hold down the "A", "B", and "C" buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds, then release them. All digit segments will turn on and display completely.
ZERO POSITIONING 1. Press the "B" button and all the segments in the digital time will reset to zero, with "UTC" showing in the main digital window. 2. Zero the "UTC" minute and hour hand (located in 12 o'clock sub-dial) to the 24 o'clock maker (straight up). Button "A" will move the hands clockwise, and button "C" will move the hands counter clockwise. 3. Press button "B" - "HR" shows in the main digital window. Adjust the main (large) hour hand to the 12 o'clock (midnight) position using "A" and "C" buttons. At the same time, observe the synchronized 24 hour hand (small dial to the left of the main dial), to insure that it also moves to point to "24". 4. Press button "B". "MIN" shows in the display window. Adjust the large minute hand to also point to the 12 using the "A" and "C" buttons. 5. Push the "M" (mode) button back in to its normal position. The watch beeps and at the same time the hands jump slightly. ALL RESET and ZERO POSITIONING are now complete. 6. Reset the time, calendar and other modes.
To set the time. Note that changing the time in any of the cities will automatically update the time for all the cities. 1. Press the "M" button to move the mode hand to (TME) 2. Press either the "A" or "C" button to move to the desired city. 3. Pull the "M" button out to the setting position. 4. Press the "A" button. SECONDS will blink. Set them with "C". 5. Press the "A" button again, and MINUTES will blink. Set them with the "C" button. 6. Press the "A" button again, and HOURS will blink. Set with the "C" button. 7. Press the "A" button again, and 12 or 24 hours tim format will appear. 8. Push in the "M" button to its normal position.
To set the calender 1. push the "M" button to move the mode hand to (CAL) 2. Set the city using the "A" or "C" buttons. 3. Pull out the "M" button to the "setting" position. The numbers of the "month" starts to blink. this is an "american" date system with the month first, day second, and year third. Use "C" button to adjust the month. 4. Push the "A" button. The date (day) will flash. Adjust with the "C" button. 5. Push the "A" button. The YEAR flashes. Adjust with the "C" button. 6. Push the "M" button back in. The calender is simultaneously adjusted for all cities.
Couple of other "tips".
Switching the time on the digital display with the time shown on the hands: 1. Press the "M" button until the mode hand is in (TME) or (CAL) mode. 2. Pressing the "A" and "C" button together. The time will switch the between the main hands (analog) and the digital display.
Temporary Hand Retraction Pressing and holding the "B" button will move the hands out of the way of the display. Repressing the "B" button will put the hands back at the correct time.
hope this helps.
