If you are sure the hands are not touching as they pass, perhaps the minute hand and hour hand are binding together at the hub. Try this: Gently pull on the minute hand by gripping its hub with the nails of your finger and thumb. It should slide forward a little (or come off). Also the same for the hour hand, to ensure it is not binding on the face of the dial.
I don't know the particular clock, but if it has a SECONDS hand, this is often the one that needs to be freed.
If all the hands are free, all should be good. If it has a seconds hand and the clock stops when this hand is going "uphill", try a fresh battery. If this doesn't fix it, remove the seconds hand and use the clock without it. Or you could try to counterbalance the hand by adding a little weight to the opposite side... this could work, but as it increases the mass of the hand also, it still might be a problem.
Another way might be to shorten the seconds hand..!

I had the same problem; I inherited a clock by that description with my office. I'm not sure if it would help you, but I was able to at least figure out the mechanics of the clock from this site: http://www.clockworks.com/cintro1.html
They claim that you can order the spring there.

Try www.klockit.com. You can replace the entire movement for about $5 including new hands. You can select from an assortment of hands that will probably match the style of what you have and use those if the old hands don't fit the new movement. I've bought several movements from them over the years. For a few more dollars you can upgrade to an "atomic clock" movement which synchronizes with the US time signal and even sets DST automatically.

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!
