SOME OF THE FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT CLOCK REPAIR WHAT WILL IT COST ME TO REPAIR MY CLOCK.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY CLOCK BE SERVICED. IT IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR CLOCK TO GIVE GOOD SERVICE AND LAST FOR GENERATIONS THAT YOU OIL YOUR CLOCK EVERY 2-3 YEARS WITH GOOD CLOCK OIL AND IT SHOULD BE CLEANED AND SERVICED EVERY 5-7 YEARS .
THE BIGGEST MYTH MY CLOCK IS WOUND TO TIGHT AND IT JUST NEEDS CLEANED AND OILED. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CLOCK WOUND TO TIGHT OR OVER WOUND UNLESS THERE IS SOME RUST OR GUNK ON THE MAINSPRING AND IT IS STUCK AND WONT RELEASE TO UNWIND. (French clocks springs seem to be weaker & when winding all the way up, sometimes will squeeze the oil out causing the spring to lock up.) IN A LOT OF  CASES WHEN A CLOCK HAS RUN A LOT OF YEARS WITH OUT BEING CLEANED & SERVICED,  IT CAUSES A LOT OF WEAR  ON THE PLATES AND THE PIVOTS  WILL CAUSE A EGG SHAPED HOLE ON THE PLATES AND WILL HAVE TO BE RE-BUSHED BEFORE THE CLOCK WILL RUN AGAIN.
ANOTHER MYTH  THE CLOCK CAN NOT BE REPAIRED  A CLOCK CAN ALWAYS BE REPAIRED BUT IF REPLACEMENT PARTS IS NOT AVAILABLE AND THEY HAVE TO BE CUSTOM MADE, IT COULD COST MORE TO REPAIR THE CLOCK THAN IT IS WORTH.   SOME OF THE MODERN CLOCKS IT IS CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE MOVEMENT WITH A NEW REPLACEMENT MOVEMENTS THEN IT WILL COST TO REPAIR THE OLD MOVEMENT BUT UNLESS YOUR CLOCK HAS SOME SENTIMENTAL VALUE TO  YOU  IT COULD COST MORE FOR A NEW REPLACEMENT MOVEMENT THAN THE CLOCK IS WORTH.
