Hi Donna;

Any qualified clock repairperson worth their ilk can fix your 400 day clock for you. I am speculating here, but you will probably find that the suspension spring is twisted, or the clock is out of beat. It is a common misconception that a clock has stopped working due to overwinding. Check your yellow pages under clock repair, or check with your local jeweller, they should know someone in your area. I wouldn't recommend shipping the clock off. Don't forget to lock or remove the pendulum when transporting your new find. Good Luck!
Doug

Donna: I agree with Doug, but caution about who you contact. Many call themseleves repair people, but may do more harm than good. Try and find someone who can vouch for the person.

Donna, where are you located? It's likely there is a qualified repair person in your area that we can refer you to.
