# Clock just stopped ticking

My peugeot clock stopped ticking. I think it's the battery but can't be sure. Does anyone know how I can open this clock and what batteries I need to get to solve the problem?

### Is it possible to have a pendulum that is too heavy? The grand father clock is battery operated and the part that swings the pendulum will move back n forth when the pendulum is not on it. If the weight...

It is a handsome longcase clock and rather elaborate - it would be disappointing to discover the weights and pendulum are merely decorative.

I have only encountered one similar clock and it had one battery to keep the pendulum swinging and another to power the clock. The battery had to be fairly fresh or the pendulum stopped swinging. The clock also had to be level or the pendulum stopped.

If you took the picture when the pendulum was stationary, the clock appears not to be standing vertically. It is important they stand vertically in both planes to the nth degree.
There is also a fable about a clock never being happy standing next to or hanging on an exterior wall, sometimes not such a fable...

I don't think the pendulum is the problem. I suggest you should level the clock (considering the shape of the case a plumbline would be best), fit a new battery and give the pendulum a swing - if it doesn't keep swinging, there is probably a fault with the motor.

It sounds like the drive spring might be worn. A Good clock and watch specialist will be able to overhaul and service the clock for you. It might cost you a bit more money but if it is a family clock it could be worth it.

### HOW TO SERVICE JAEGER LECOULTRE ATMOS CLOCK

You need to find a specialist. This is a very special clock, \$\$\$, and requires someone very knowledgable of Atmos clocks. Do not let just anybody touch it. "just cleaning" and "a lube" is a very delicate and demanding job that requires an expert, a professional. I am a professional watchmaker, make my living doing so. Find an Atmos clockmaker near you and by the way, learn how to secure the clock before you move it or you may do more damage. Good luck

### I have model fs-2919 would like to know what the other dials are for i dont have the booklet thanks for your help

The three small dials on this watch are all part of a "stopwatch" system. The small dial at the 12 o'clock is for tenths of a second( each half circle completed is one second or 1 whole rotation equals 2 seconds.) the small dial at the 6 o'clock counts a full 60 seconds for each revolution, and the dial at the 9 o'clock counts minutes(one full circle equaling an hour.) when the stop watch is started the 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock dials will start at the same time. you will notice that every half turn on the top dial equals one "tick" on the bottom dial. After the first minute of timing the top dial will stop ticking as it is for more precise timing of things that take less than 1 minute. each full rotation of the bottom dial will then equate to one "tick" of the 9 o'clock dial. hence the three dials counting tenths of a second, seconds and minutes. the setting of these dials is fairly easy once you understand the purpose. on the side of the watch there are two buttons(one top and one bottom) with a setting wheel in the center. When in use the top button starts and stops the stopwatch and the bottom button resets the counters. To set the watch simply pull the center wheel away from the watch all the way(2 clicks) set your minute hand and hour hand and then tap the bottom button repeatedly until the small dials all line up straight up. once that is done push the center wheel button halfway into the watch or one click to set the date. then simply push the wheel the rest of the way in and voila!!! hope this answers some questions

### I have an early 1900 clock that I have to wind. I have noticed my clock stops frequently. I go to wind it and it is tight to wind so instead of over winding I tip the clock to start the ticking and the...

You can not unwind the clock yourself, because this requires proper clock makers tools and skills as well. Clock is stopping because it has not been serviced for a long time and the oil in clock has collected dust particles and getting sticky. This does not let the spring unwind freely and is a problem for all cogs and moving parts. Find your nearest clock repair shgop and ask for cleaning, oiling and adjusting. BE AWARE: If you are gonna try to unwind it yourself, you will damage the clock's movement, but most important - you can even brake or loose your fingers, as the clock spring is under unbelievable tension and once released, it uncoils lightning fast and is sharp as a razor.

### My watch has stopped working and the battery is fine

The battery may be bad or installed with the wrong side up. Usually the positive (+) side faces up.

If this is not the problem you may have a bad coil in the movement or the watch needs servicing by a qualified watchmaker.

If you have any further questions please let me know.
Many thanks!

### Repair of battery-operated wall clock

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.

### Wall clock not working

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..!
