Repair of battery-operated wall clock

My battery-operated Timex wall clock has stopped operating. It is not a question of run-down batteries, because I have repeatedly tried to revive it. I think the clock needs a new motor. Where in New York City (preferably Manhattan) can I have it repaired or the motor replaced?

We had the same problem with our wall clock, but it was due to corrosion from a dead battery. The battery acid leaked inside and disrupted the connection between the metal contacting the batteries and the circuit (the one with the copper coil). We took everything out cleaned the contact points with acetone (nail polish remover). After that we had to bend the contact heads up just a little bit so they would contact the circuit again (I guess we bent them down a little when we were cleaning it). It worked just fine after that. I know it sounds intimidating to take apart a clock and put it back together but you're going to throw it out anyway. Just give it a try. It was kinda fun. Think of it as a puzzle. If you can't fix it, I imagine you can get a new motor at any hobby store or Michaels.

    Excellent suggestion. I am going to give this a try today. I have a clock I recieved as a gift. It stoppted running and when I went to change the battery, I noticed that there was a little light green acid in the battery casing. No fresh batteries solved the problem, I'll do this and report the results. Or I too will be on the way to Michaels.

Hello. I own a 40 to 50 year old "Timex Electronic" watch. There is a number date at the 3 o'clock position. I see no other identifying info on the outside. I don't have a battery for it. How


Hello,

What is the exact model of the watch. I have several Timex Electronic watches that might fit your description. If you pop the caseback do you see the old battery inside? Most batteries would have a reference like: CR2016.

I have a Timex Ironman T563719J. The digital clock is working, but the analog portion has stopped. Any ideas?


There are two batteries in the watch. One for the digital watch and the other for the analog watch. The battery for the analog side probably needs changing but when the back is opened, you might as well change both batteries.

I replaced battery but still keeps stopping. Runs for awhile and then stops. Timex CR1216


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
I dont know what type of TImex it is, nor how long you have had it. CR1216 is a battery.

Hello, I just bought a Timex Acqua with Indiglo


Depending on when you bought your Timex, you shouldn"t need a battery just yet, your Timex came with a good battery. Look under the stem (winder) for a small piece of plastic that is not allowing the stem to go all the way down, remove that piece of plastic and push the stem down and your Timex will start. Or if your Timex has buttons, look for a tab of plastic on the back cover, this tab of plastic is keeping the battery from (ground) a complete circuit remove this tab of plastic to start your Timex. Changeing the battery while fairly easy, you"d need jewelers screwdrivers and of course the new battery, Best Bet, look for a small watch repair shop in your area for the battery change.

The light was fading on my Indiglo Timex watch but it was still keeping good time, so I had a new battery installed by a Walmart employee. The light now works on the watch but the watch stopped keeping...


mcdevito75 here, Your Timex watch is most likely an Indiglo meaning light, The battery supplies power to to Quatz mechanism for time keeping and for the light. There is a very good possibility that 1 or 2 of the contacts between the battery and the Quatrz mechanism were lost during the new battery installation. While you can"t rule out that the Quartz mechanism and or the light may be wearing down, you still have to suspect the battery even a new battery, look for a small watch repair shop in your area and try another battery, let the jewler know of your watches problem so he / she can properly install the battery and ensure the contacts between the Quartz and the battery are being made.

Timex expedition problem


You probibly need to have the anologe serviced. It isn't like the old days when watches had a mainspring which, when you wound it the gears would push by anything that got in the gears way because of the pressure form the mainspring. Now with quartz watche ANY little thing ( dust sooo small) will stop the gears from running. I would take the watch to a reputable watchrepair and have them check the battery. DO NOT ask them to sell you a new battery just CHECK it. If you get a new battery, it the watch probibly will run good again for about 3 weeks , and then start acting up again, because a new battery might have enough power (at first) to get by the watches problem untill it uses some energy up. But if your battery is bad that to could cause this , but that is highly doubtful that is the problem.
If you still have a problems please let me know I will be glad to assist you!
