After unpacking the clock the cuckoo (and the music
with musical clocks) does not work
Please make follow the instructions carefully, when unpacking the clock.
If the clock should not work in the end, please check the following points:
Have the clamps been removed from the bellows inside the clock as described
in the instructions (see picture)?
Has the cuckoo's door been "unlocked"? You have to turn a little wire
to the side, that secured the door while shipping (see picture).
Please check the position of the night shut-off. The most common reason
why cuckoo and music do not work is that they have been turned off. With
some clocks the night shut-off is a switch at the left side of the clock,
with other types it is a wire under the clock (see picture).
The Clock runs too slow / too fast
pendulum is responsible for making the clock keep time. If your clock runs
to fast, you can move the pendulum-disc down a little on the pendulum to
correct this. If the clock is running to slow you have to move the pendulum-disc
up.Keep in mind that moving the pendulum leaf or disc 1/8 Inch (3 mm) on
the pendulum stick is equal to a 3 minute change in a 24 hour period.
The Clock Stops
Please make sure that the clock is adjusted properly on the wall. The
clock must be placed in a correct vertical position so that the pendulum
can swing freely.
You must "listen" to the clock and be sure that the clock has an even Tick-Tock
sound. Do not adjust the clock with your eyes, do it with your ears. This
is adjusted by moving the clock to the right or left, until you hear the
tick tock sound which is even.
