Westclox Westminster Chime

The pendulum in my Westclox Westminster Chime clock has stopped swinging. I have tried fresh batteries trying to make it swing but it doesn't work anymore. I have tried to find new "guts" for it but cannot. Can you help?

SOURCE: changed battery and now pendulum wont swing

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.

I have a Dakota Daniels grandfather clock. The chimes work, the pendulum works, but the clock hands don't move.

Change the batteries. The weight makes the pendulum and chimes work, but the clock in this thing is battery operated :>)

    Pendulum wont swing

    Clock may either need to be decked out from the wall at the top, or pushed all the way up against the wall. These clocks have inexpensive quartz movements that aren't of the highest quality. If the clock is more than a few years old, it may be that the electromagnet that impulses the pendulum back and forth has just expired. You might try, or maybe to find a replacement movement. Hope this helps, Good Luck

    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.

    I have a Seiko Westminster Whittingham Clock, which keeps perfect time, but the pendulum won't swing for more than a couple of minutes. Does anyone know what's causing this? Bob

    mcdevito75 here, I would figure the pendulum serves 2 purposes, 1 it acts like a seconds hand on a watch and 2 more important it acts a s a counter weight keeping the clock in Balance. It sounds like the Pendulum mechanism needs cleaning and or adjustment, look for a small watch repair shop in your area, they can advise you on a clock repair shop in your area, or you can always check with the repair service directory right here at fixya, bottom of page, click on repair service directory the watches / clocks.

    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.
