There is power and at the contacts it sparks and opens and then it winds down and when the contacts touch they spark and open again. The clock doesn't tick and it is not frozen or have dirty gears because I can spin it easily now and hear a tick. Any suggestions? Thanks.
If it winds down and resets and repeats it should be working. I can't hear very well and if I put my ear right up to it I can just hear it. But it's not loud to me. While it's windings down you should see the little wheel spinning and gear movement. Do they move?
