The suspension spring is the part on the back of the clock that supports the pendulum balls in the air.
This is almost always the fist issue to deal with to get the clock running.
This happens when someone is not familiar with the clock and they move it from here to there with the pendulum getting knocked around and the spring gets twisted and kinked.
