Wall clocks can add a decorative finish in a room. wall clocks come in a variety of forms – some have a pendulum, some have a balance within the clock and others feature a cuckoo gushing out in the clock every hour. Some wall clocks have no clocks or cuckoo but have a scene or saying printed on the front of the clock. Fixing your wall clock depends on what is wrong with it.
- The your pendulum or the pendulum of a clock with the key provided when you bought the clock if the pendulum has stopped swinging.The key fits into the winding mechanism on the back of the clock.Once you’ve wound the clock, take the pendulum and sweep to one side until you hear a click, then release. The pendulum should start swinging. Pendulum wall clocks and pendulum are driven by a powerful spring that needs winding periodically.
- Check to make sure the hands on your wall clocks are not touching.Touching hands will stop the clock work. Separate the hands and reset the wall clock.
- Ensure that clocks are level.The pendulum will not swing if the clock is not level.If you have moved your clock or if the clock has been pushed or shaking while on the wall it may not be level.Press slightly to one side of the clock and listen to the ticking. Gently push the other side. Keep pushing each side until the ticking sound is a perfect TIC TAC.
Tips & Warnings
- Clocks with a balance wheel and other clocks without pendulum does not have to be level to work.
- wall clocks must be wound every seven days.
- wind clocks slowly as the springs are powerful.
How to Oil a Wall Clock
If you do not oil your wall clock regularly, it could lead to a squeaky mechanism, inconsistencies in the timing and even grinding gears, which will ruin any effect created by the beauty of a nice wall clock. The properly oiling your clock is an admittedly delicate process; too much oil and you just end up with a greasy mess on the back plate of your clock.
- Fill a small syringe with oil.
- Remove the timber from the back of the clock using a flathead screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the back in place.Carefully pull back.
- Make sure you look at the back plate. You will notice that there is a series of concave indents.This is where the end or pivot, the gear rods are placed on the opposite side.The concave indents, which are ideal for a drop of oil, are called oil syncs.
- Place a drop of oil in the timing of the oil.Do not use more or the oil will simply drip down the back plate.
- Repeat this process on all the oil syncs to fully oil all the internal processes inside your wall clock.
- Replace the back of your clock.
