Emperor Model 300 series - triple chime

by Barb

While rewinding our clock, the center weight was pulled up too far and now does not want to come back down and the pendulum stops after 20 mins.

Is there something we can do to fix this?

Thanks for any help,

Barb Walker

Hi Barb<(b>

Your problem is that the weight is probably stuck in the so called seat board.
The best way to mend this is by starting the pendulum swinging, while at the same time pressing down on the weight but do this gently. Be patient and to this for several minutes while the clock is running and you will find that the weight will separate from the seat board.

Let us know if this works.
