Wall clock

Hey gang, does anyone know where I can get a new wall clock or the mechanical innards for mine. Have tried changing the battery a few times with little or no luck. It will only keep correct time for about 6 hours. Help!

Dave

Try a search for battery clock movements. You will find a bunch of movements for under $10 at Amazon or even Walmart. Craft or hobby shops would be another thought.

I buy mine on eBay, cheap. Like 2 for $3.00 including shipping. I get the steady run movement, no more click, click, click.

I'm not kidding

Dave, before you do anything, soak that sucker in WD40.
I put plastic wrap under the movement to protect the clock back, held it upside down and hosed 'er down. Let it dry and problem is gone.

Teach, did you take it apart before you sprayed?

No, I just removed the battery and teased WD40 into every opening. Let it sit awhile then I blew it out with a can of compressed air I keep by the computer. I fixed a pendulum wall clock the same way.
Whattayagot to lose?

H'mm, OK I'll give ours a try. It does not hold time either. Runs slow.

I'll let you know the outcome once I give it a try.

Thanks!

Wall clock

I did better than that. Found some vendor on line that offered 2 for less than $4. And FREE SHIPPING. Killed an afternoon sitting in the shade with a couple of beers and replaced the guts on the original clock. AND, I've got the other one to repair a broken clock at home. Life is good! Lol

I got one in my model t-2499 that I've never put batteries in. Guess it would work. Looks brand new.
