2) Is my Cuckoo Clock New?
No,and yes..All mechanicals has either been replaced or cleaned and oiled ready for years of service*,since they are mostly wood some pieces has been repaired but None are visually seen in front of the clock.
*see instruction manual for easy to follow directions on proper maintenance procedures.
3) Why did my Cuckoo Clock stop by it self?
They may be more than one reason for this to happen*,Most commons are Placement., is the
clock set by a window? or close to AC/Heather vents?
wind and draft can stop the Pendulum therefore stopping the clock.
Also when pulling the chains to wind the clock be
careful on not touching the Pendulum accidently.
Even vibrations from the washer & dryer can travel along the wall and stop the pendulum.
Another possibility is Tilt and Angle. Try tilting the houseing a little forward if nail or screw is long enough,if it still stop (within 5 minutes or so) try moving the housing a liitle to the left or right.
*see instruction for proper placement.
