Cuckoo Clock Repair


CUCKOO CLOCK

REGULATION AND REPAIR TIPS

REF: 30 hour and 8 day clock
[From my shop notes:]
image006.jpg
{FACT}
-1/8 inch movement of the pendulum bob is equal to about 3 min per 24 hours running.
-To increase the time of the clock, move pendulum up.
-To slow down the time move, pendulum down.

Regulation notes:
These novel clocks are at best only a "fair" time-keeper. You can expect 100 to 120 sec per 30-hour winding period. I recommend that if it is within a few minutes per winding, simply RE-set the time.

-The regulation obstacles are obvious:
1. Open pendulum, this allows even the slightest breeze from a fan, ceiling fan or even cross-winds inside your house to affect both time qualities and/or its running ability.
2. The Pendulum material is wooden, and sensitive to climatic condition, during times of high humidity the clock will slow down.




REPAIR TIPS:

1. Recommend regular servicing every 2 to 3 years for these unique clocks, mostly due to the fact that the movement is open to the elements (dust and dirt is easily deposited on the movement).
2. Sometimes the clock is "over weighted", meaning that the actual weight is to heavy for the clock. I have seen some very new clocks with the wrong weights added. Instead of the clock simply stopping after the lubrication qualities are gone it continues to run and ruined the bushings.
-To find the correct weight of a newly serviced clock, you can use a small scale. Anchor it to the floor, connect chain to the top end, wind it until it is more than double the weight of the existing weights, and then start the clock to running after the clock stops running, X's the weight figure on the scale by multiplying 1.25 or 1.35 X's the weight figure on the scale by 25 to 35 % maximum = the amount needed. [Example scale indicator is on 1 lb x 25% = 1.25 lb




BELLOW REPAIR:


-Unfortunately many repair persons have opted to simply replace the bellow, this is unfortunate because it can so easily be repaired.

-I use a "RE-COVERING BELLOWS" kit.

-This kit comes with bellow replacement material, glue, one wooden handling tool and great instructions.
DO NOT attempt to simply patch work this, it is not fair to the customer and it will not work long.

THE CHAIN:

If needed, don't be afraid to replace the chain as they are easily ordered and replaced. Most cost about $3 to $4 a piece.

The problems are:

-If there is a child, pet, or adult in the house, the chain can be stretched. If the chain becomes damaged, it will get hung up inside the clock. "Even one damaged link can stop the clock."
-Wrong size chain {the differences between 72 links per foot and 67 links per foot are easily confused). Recommend actually laying the chain on the chain drive gear and seeing if it fits.


MUSIC BOX GOVERNORS:image008.jpg


Clean and oil only. Check the pivots if worn. Don't waste your time to try and repair, just replace the Governor. Only the actual music drum can be sleeved with a new bushing. Cost for a new governor is about $25. Well worth having a few assorted governors in stock.
-If a complete replacement is necessary, the cost is about $40 to $50.

Hope this tip helps.

How do I re-set my CLOK TCR338 to not read in military time?


heres an answer another question had that might assist u in some way:
Hi,

According to the instructions that we received with our clock. You should be able to get the Instruction manual from prodinfo@gpx.com. It is also supposed to be under the support section of the website www.dpi-global.com but I couldn't find such a link.

However the "Operational Support" insert has the following:

Setting the clock
1. With the unit powered off, press and hold the "Clock/Display/Play/Pause Button" for at least 4 seconds.
2. While holding the "Clock/Display/Play/Pause Button", press the "Hour" and "Minute Buttons" to adjust the hour and minute on the time.
3. When the correct time is selected, release the "Clock/Display/Play/Pause Button" to set the clock

Setting the Alarms
1. With the unit powered off, press and hold the "AL1" or "AL2" Button for at least 4 seconds.
NOTE: An alarm icon will begin to flash on the LCD display.

2. While holding the "AL1" or "AL2" Button, press the "Hour" and "Minute Buttons" to adjust the hour and minute on the alarm time.

3. When the correct time is selected, release the "AL1" or "AL2" Button to set the clock.

4. Press the "AL1" or "AL2" Button consecutively to switch alarm one and alarm two between sounding to a buzzer, the currently set radio station, or a docked iPod.

Timex 1440 sport indiglo 50m convert from 24 hour clock to 12 hour clock.


There are several models of your watch not all of which appear to have a 12/24 hour display format.

Try this extract from a manual; press the MODE button six times to enter the 12/24 adjusting setting and then use the START/STOP or SPLIT/RESET button to change the time.

Press the mode button to return to normal operation.

I want a manual for the Casio PQ-10D-8REF LED Digital Travel Clock


I have searched their website and have been unable to find your model but I suspect that all the models operate in a similar manner, so the instructions for one of the other clocks could be used.

If you go to http://support.casio.com/pdf/002/PQ30_31_DQ543_583.pdf and download that file, you should be able to find you way round your clock.

Good luck!

I have a Westclox battery operated wall clock with chicken on face. The battery is new. The second hand tries to move but just "clicks" How can I fix this?


Sounds like it is just worn out.
Sometimes you can replace the generic clock works in these type of clocks. Go online and do a search for battery powered clock works, and see if you can match yours. They are removed quite easily after popping off the clock hands, and removing a nut under the hands that holds the clock works in the chicken.
Here's a link to a site that sells the clock movements... http://www.clockworks.com/
