My Cuckoo Clock Runs Too Fast or Too Slow

Posted by Megan Mahoney on

No need to take it to the clock repair shop! This is probably just because your pendulum is moving too fast or too slow. The length of the pendulum determines how fast it swings, so you need to either lengthen or shorten it.

 

It runs too fast:

-Lengthen the pendulum by moving the bob down

 

It runs too slow

-Shorten the pendulum by moving the bob up

 

What is the bob?

Below is a picture of the bob. The bob is simply the leaf part of the cuckoo clock

How much should I move the bob?

This is really just guess work. Make an educated guess and then compare it with a working watch/clock/iphone for about 24 hours. Then you can continue to adjust as necessary.
