How to Repair a Wall Clock

Clocks and wall clocks can add a decorative finish to a room. Wall clocks come in a variety of forms-some have a pendulum, some have an inner pendulum of the clock, and others have a cuckoo that springs from the inside of the clock every hour. Some wall clocks have no clock or cuckoo, but have a scene or a saying printed on the face of the clock.Your wall clock setting depends on what is wrong with it.

Things you need

  • Winding key


  1. Wind your clock or a clock pendulum wheel with the key provided when you purchased the clock if the clock is stopped swinging.The key inserted in the winding on the back of the clock mechanism. After having rolled the clock, take the pendulum and it sweep from one side until you hear a click and then let go. The pendulum should start swinging. Wheel pendulum and balance clocks are driven by a powerful spring that needs winding periodically.
  2. Check to ensure that the hands on your wall clocks are not touching. Hands touching will stop the clock to work.Pull the hands apart and the wall clock.
  3. Make sure that the clocks are level.The pendulum will not swing if the clock is not level. If you moved your clock or the clock has been pushed or pot on the wall, it may not be level. Push one side of the clock a bit and listen to the ticking. Gently push the other side. Keep pushing on each side until that tic tac tic tac perfect sound.

Tips & warnings

  • With a pendulum clocks and other clocks without a pendulum may not be level to work.
  • Clocks and wall clocks should be wound every seven days.
  • Clocks to slowly wind the springs are powerful.
