Question about Seiko Melodies in Motion Clock

2 Answers

My clock keeps time, melody plays on the hour, but the other motions will not move. It is one that the fack goes into a cross with figures making music in all four corners. We have changed the batteries and that doesn't help.

    It seems to me that a clock that cost this much from a reputable company should not be unrepairable. Isn't there any other solution?
    Clock has not been abused, hanging on the wall in the same place and not moved except to change batteries.

The motor can run dry of oil or grease when the clock gets older causing this problem. It's a nice clock, but probably not repairable.

Can you tell me how long you've owned this clock?

By moving the clock back one hour you changed from DST to standard time, not as you stated. Some clocks require you to rotate the hands clockwise to set the time back. Your clock may have been damaged beyond repair.

How do I set the Chimes on the Ergo Westminster Clock


The controls on the back of the Ergo brand Wall Chime Clock are different than that of the Seiko. I'm not sure who makes the movement - probably Chinese or Asian. Anyway, always take the pendulum off the hook before moving the clock about as it can damage the mechanism. On the back, there is a dial for adjusting the time setting of the clock hands, which is awkward to use, but does work, easiest to leave it alone and use the minute hand, NEVER the hour hand. There is a dial for volume. There is a switch for type of chime - Westminster or Wittington. There is the night-time shut off or volume reduction. Some models have a switch for chiming every quarter hour. My advice is make sure you have fresh batteries, and set the switches on the back for the settings you want. Hang the clock, grasp the pendulum arm and re-hang the pendulum, making sure it's hooked in properly. Now, whatever the hands say the time is, ignore it for now, and gently move the minute hand backwards, slowly, to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forwards to a couple of minutes past the top of the hour. This will cause the chimes to start. Let the melody play, then listen for how many "clangs" you get. That will tell you what the clock thinks the time is. For example, if it "dongs" 5 times, and you've set it to run silent at night, the clock thinks it's 5 p.m. If it's actually only 3:15 p.m., then gently run the minute hand backwards til the hands indicate about 10 minutes behind the correct time (it'll take you several minutes to complete the process) then gently move the minute hand back to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forward to a few minutes past, and the chime will start to play the melody. If you let it, it will play out the full melody, then it will "clang" one more time than your previous test. Each time you move the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, it advances the chimes by one hour. Here's a tip - you don't have to let the melody and "clangs" play fully, each time, once you know how it works. If you have it set to run silent at night (pre-programmed to silence after 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.), keep moving the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, keeping track of how many times you've done it until you reach 10 p.m., or not, until you get to the point where you move the minute hand back and there's silence. At that point, the auto-silence mechanism is active, and the clock thinks it 11 p.m. So, from that point, keep repeating the process of gently moving the minute hand back and forth, from about 5 minutes to the hour, to a few minutes past, keeping track of how many times you've done it. After 8 sequences, you hear it start to chime again, at 6 a.m. So, at that point, go through the back-up and advancing of the minute hand sequence 9 more times, and on the 9th time, let the melody play, and let in "clang" to determine that you're indeed at 3 p.m., which you should be. Then simply gently advance the minute hand to the correct time, 3:10, 3:12, whatever, and you're done. You'll know for certain soon enough.

How to change the hour


Anniversary clock hands can be adjusted directly moving the minute hand clockwise. Do not touch hour hand as this may cause hand disalignment. Carefully move minutes hand with your finger all the way around till you reach desired time.
