    I have The Standard Electric Time Co. Secondary Clock, Type: FMT-SQ-12, GRC, Volts 120, Cycles: 60, Drive Motor: 5 Watts Max, Reset Motor: 5 Watts Max, Manufactured MAR 1961 Flextron. Right now I have it hooked up to an extension cord plugged into the wall the only thing is that I have to set it manually. I would like to run the reset motor without having to purchase a master clock. Do you have any recommendations on running the reset motor.
    I look forward to your response.
    Thank you in advance

    You could wire it up to a switch to activate the reset motor.

    Thanks for your response
    Can I run both off the same power source? Can I twist the two white wires together then? Is their a wiring diagram I can find? Would the switch go before the motor or after the motor?
    Thanks again

    I cannot open your attachments. Instead I get the following message:

    Must I have Outlook on my system?

    The black and white is the run voltage. Check the motor and labels on the clock for the voltage. The correction voltage can be different but that usually requires 2 white wires. Connect a momentary pushbutton switch across the black and red wires. The correction MIGHT be in the table I attached. If you can find the proper correction hold the momentary pushbutton switch closed as required to send a correction to the clock.

    Thanks for your quick response. Your pictures and chart. I am kind of confused on the second white wire. My drive motor has a black and a White wire, and my reset motor has a red and a white wire. They are both 120 Volts, 60 Cycles, and are both 5 watts max. 306072.jpg

    Hook up both whites together, and to one wire of the power cord. Hook up the black to the other wire on the power cord, and run a switch between the black and the red.

    How many clocks do you have? More than one can be wired in series.

    If you are unfamiliar with electricity, find someone who is familiar to check your work before plugging it in.
