Sweep motion clock isn't silent anymore; what to do? Answered
I hope to find some help here!
I own a sweep motion ''silent'' clock that was indeed silent until a few days ago. For unknown reason, it started to make a buzzing, motorized sound, as if I can hear the motor running inside. It's particularly noticeable when the clock is upright against the wall, not so much when its laying flat (which is totally useless)
What to do ? Common sense with other clocks would be to lubricate the gears inside (sorry about my lack of clock-related vocabulary) but I don't know if I can do it with a sweep motion clock? Is it even the cause for this? Or the motor is just ruined?
Also tried to insulate the back, helps a little but not so much. The reason I own a silent clock is that I am particularly sensitive to noises, it's driving me insane.
Any help would be much appreciated.
