Troubleshooting tips

clock adjustmentMy pendulum clock is running slow/fast:

With a clean, cotton glove or cloth, stop the pendulum.

Using your left hand, hold the pendulum bob securely.

Using your right hand, turn the adjustment nut at the bottom of the pendulum a half turn to the right to speed up the clock or to the left to slow it down.

Reset the time on the clock.

Allow 24-48 hours before readjusting again, if needed.

If you try this and it doesn’t give satisfactory results, there might be something else causing this problem that might be more serious – give us a call 843-327-0455.
