Why Clocks Don't Work
Your Trusted Clock Repair Shop in Gaithersburg, MD
Keep Your Clock in Proper Working Conditions
Keeping a clock working requires occasional care – oiling, cleaning, and repairing – for it to run and keep a good time. Older clocks that were built to last will run longer than the modern clocks. These clocks require servicing every 5+/- years. Similar to your car, the oil in your clock must be changed to keep it in working order.
Why Don’t Clocks Work?
Too much wear - results in too much friction, slowing, or stopping the clock
Springs that have lost their power - metal fatigue causes the loss of power to turn the wheels, powering the clock
Broken parts - springs or gear teeth that will not allow the clock to keep time
“Old” oil that acts more like glue than oil - gummy oil does not allow the clock to run as it should and increases the wear of all parts
Mechanical adjustment - if the clock is “out of beat” with an uneven tic-toc, the clock or pendulum cannot keep running
