Tork 8600 is variable cycle timer.
Each revolution of dial is 60 minutes, 30 minutes or 6 minutes depending on model.
60 minute timer has 2 models, 120V and 240V.
Other models are 120V.
If clock is not keeping time, then clock motor is bad.
I don't have a source for clock motor, and suspect that a new timer is purchased and then installed into existing box.

Link below sells 8601 60 minute 120Volt

To set times, the dial has tabs located around dial.
Tabs are tilted in or out
Tab out = NC terminal has power
Tab in = NO terminal has power

Edward Meyer 31 Day Grandfather Clock manual


I recently bought an Edward Meyer clock from Grandfather clocks for less. The clock is beautiful, but it never chimed. I even took it apart and repaired the chimes, the hammers were too far away from the chiming rods, but now that it does chime, it sounds like someone banging pots and pans together, it's horrible. I've been looking online to find replacement chime and hammer parts so I can fix it myself.

I live in Florida. My atomic watch has worked perfectly until a week ago when the nightly automatic calibration with Fort Collins stopped. Have followed the instructions faithfully. I moved the watch to...


It could be a temporary, weather-related, problem, or it could be related to a number of other factors: new construction in your area, a new RF source (radio transmitter, cell tower, etc.) in your area, etc. Your watch contains a small radio receiver, and determining the exact cause for its failure to receive the WWVB signal is nearly impossible. About all you can do is try the watch at different locations in the home, and you may have to turn it to face in different directions. Mine, for instance, syncs best when hanging from a drawer and facing in an east-west direction.

The problem you have on your Handycam is the flex cable FP-835.
You have to open the camera and change the cable.
It´s very easy to change.

Clock is losing time


This is a problem with either the a/c power or the Clock/Radio's internal timing crystal circuitry. The radio depends on the 60 cycle power source as the timing device. If this power is irregular or uneven in its delivery it can cause the timing circuits to lose or gain time. The Clock/Radio has a frequency tuned crystal that operates like the second hand on a clock. When the calibration for whatever reason is lost the crystal will not be able to perform the timing function correctly. The reason this does not happen in all Clock/Radios is that they usually have correction circuits. These circuits keep the crystal from drifting out of calibration during operation. Because of the low production cost of these Clock/Radios, the quality control is almost non existent. The components are variable and sometimes they do not stay within specifications. This problem is usually handled by quality control departments in the manufacturers facilities. They usually test a certain amount of the production run to make sure it meets specification. In higher priced electronics these test are on going during the production run. In lower cost electronics these tests for quality control are usually done before the production run. This is to choose the best and most reliable components for the price level of the product in production. What this means to you, is that the quality of the components and quality control of the production runs are based on cost efficiency to the manufacturer. This is the reason for these type of efficiency variables in the products. The customer support telephone number for Emerson is 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 9am-5pm CT. Give them the make and model number of the Clock/Radio and ask them for assistance with your problem. I hope this information helps you under the problem and reason these problems can occur in the products. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.
