Hello:I have a Rhythm wall clock it plays musical numbers then counts
the hours. it works keep grate time....if you push the button,where it
says"TRY ME" the clock with play one of the songs everything turns around
dail opens shows bells turning around... it stops dail closes.. but it won't
count hour...but trun the hands it will do everything it suppose to do.
the movement I took apart, and everything is in there.
except the two wires that sounder to the trigger are just laying there loose.
the parts missing is the whole trigger parts.you can see whats left of them.
I have two old triggers movements and try then in there. but it clicks,
when the hour hand is on 12... but nothing. I need a Rhythm trigger move-
ment. this has 6 songs...and 3 Christmas songs, its called
"Nostick: sorry I can not spell to good... I have sent pictures of the inside,
and outside the clock... look! 002.jpg 003.jpg :( 004.jpg 005.jpg 006.jpg

Manufacturer will not sell them to you. They want the clock sent to them for repair (and I have little doubt they are cheap). I decided not to use them when I had a customer needing a clock repaired.

You have an interesting movement. The trigger movement is not used, apparently. The unit uses two micro switches as activators, and a board to control things. I'll have to guess that the minute hand encounters one of the micro switches to activate the board. Perhaps the other micro switch either is attached to the hour hand to count the hours, or is a stop mechanism. If the latter is right, one of the micro switches may not be working. Otherwise, you probably have an issue in the board. I've never seen a setup like that one.

It is correct, they won't sell parts. They want the clock returned to them and want $65.00 to look at it and quote.
A customer of mine sent unit in and all they
did was send a certificate for a discount off a new clock.
