Hi all!

Brand new to the forums. I have a Pam advertising clock for the Ernie Ball company that has movement issues. From the attached photo, I'm guessing the movement was made in June of 1974. It appears to be a Model 29. I checked for resistance from using a multimeter at the plug, and it read 1.5Kohms. I’ve attached the second hand, and the motor “tries” to move it, but for the most part doesn’t. When it tries, it makes a clacking sound, then the sound/movement stops after about 30 seconds. If I push the second hand clockwise after is stops, it tries to re-engage again. The motor doesn't get hot while running.

So...it seems as if the assembly is really "riveted" to the unit. Is there anyone who repairs these units, or is there a way to remove/replace the movement? I'm seeing just about nothing online.

Thanks in advance!
Tom

davefr,

Thanks!

My wife got me a Hansen motor/movement years ago. Just unboxed it, and saw that I could make it work...but was hoping for an option that had me not modifying the clock. But...no one will see the mods, so there's that.

I am having a heck of a time finding the extension rod for actuating the bottom stem. Do you/anyone know who might have them? Ronell clock company seems to be out of them, and I don't see them on the Hansen site.

Also...how good re the Hansen movements? Is there anything that should be done to help longevity?

Thanks,
Tom
