Cuckoo Clock Repair Cleaning Kitt Description

The basic items for a Cuckoo Clock Repair Cleaning Kit. This kit is meant for use without disassembling the movement. Cleaning without disassembly is not as effective as breaking down the movement, but it is sufficient in most cases.

Not everyone is ready to break down their clock movement and put it back together. This kit is for the person who would like to do a simple clock cleaning with out having to learn an intense amount of clock repair information or Horology.

The goal to cleaning a clock movement is to remove old oil that has become a solid and put new oil in its place. Clock oil that has become a solid creates wear to the movements outer plates and eventually causes too much friction for the clock to run.

I have a cuckoo clock with a Herr mechanism. My 3 year old pulled the time chain out of the clock and lost the chain. Will this kit plus a chain resolve my problem? How difficult is it to replace the chain?

A cuckoo movement, if you have a sensitive clock, may not run when it isn’t flush to the wall and plumb. However some clocks won’t run when they are straight. Try tilting the clock a little bit at a time to one side then the other until you find where it will run. You can adjust the clock by bending the crutch very slightly. There are several websites that explain this further. If the clock still won’t run it may be dirty. It doesn’t take a lot of dust to stop them.
