Unpacking
1
a.) Open the cardboard box
Open the cardboard box by cutting the
adhesive tape from one end to the other with
a knife or scissors.Take care not to cut too
deeply to not damage the parts inside.
Opening the box with a knife, scissors, etc.
might be hazardous to your health if you
cut yourself.The cardboard edges of the
box´s lid may be very sharp, so that there
exists a possibility of cutting yourself, also.
b.) Remove paper
Carefully remove the paper in order not to
damage the more delicate wooden pieces of
the clock.
c.) Take clock out of the box
Take out the clock by the roof not by the
carvings or figurines. Mind the two sharp metal
holders on the front of the roof as not to
pierce or cut yourself (only traditional carved
cuckoo clocks).You may take clocks without
carvings by the bottom panel.
20
d.) Parts Wine Leaf Clocks
Before you throw away the wrapping material,
make sure that you have all the necessary
pieces.
Traditional carved cuckoo clock
(1) Carved top piece with oak/wine leaves
(2) Deer head; attached to the back of the
lower carvings with a rubber band
(only hunting scenes)
(3) Antlers (only hunting scenes)
(4) Pendulum
(4) Weights (clocks with music have 3,
clocks without music have 2 weights)
e.) Parts Hunting Scenes
f.) Parts Farm Houses (Chalets)

E
a.) Open back lid
Put paper or a cloth on a table to make the
surface soft. Put the clock face down on the
softened ground. Push up the small bolt that sets
free the back lid.Take a screwdriver and put it in
the small square hole on the top end of the lid
(next to the bolt) and pull open the lid. Do not
put a screwdriver or like things in any other hole
of the back wall.You may damage the clockwork,
chimes, wires, etc.
c.) Pull out bellow clamps
Pull out the clamps that stick around the
bellows.You will have 2 clamps with every
models despite “8 TMT´s” (8-day cuckoo clocks
with music).With the latter you only have 1
large clamp. Close the back lid and move down
the small bolt. Keep the clamps, chimes´ paper,
and the cardboard box in a safe place for possible transportation.
b.) Pull out chime paper
Pull out the paper that you find wrapped around
the chimes on the inner side of the back lid.
Then put the back lid to the side.
d.) Pull out bellow clamps on 8TMT clocks
There is only one clamp on 8TMT clocks.

Attaching the clock to the wall
3
Put screw in the wall
Mark the place where you want to put the
clock with a pencil at a height of at least 6 ft.
Put a large screw in an upward angle into the
wall at the mark and let it stick out of the wall
for about an inch. If you have other than wooden
walls you had better use a drill and a rawl plug
or dowel to fix the screw. Do not use nails as
they might not be strong enough to hold the
clock when you wind it.
Put the clock on the wall by placing the end
of the screw in the top round hole on the
back of the clock.Take care to hang up the
clock straight.
Completing the clock

a.) Open clock door
Push up the bolt that blocks the cuckoo-door.
c.) How to put antlers on
Take the antlers and stick them onto the deer
head. (Only clocks with hunting scenes).
b.) How to screw deer head on
Take the deer head and screw it to the top
carved piece from the back side.
d.) How to put top part on
Take the top carved piece and make the two
screws on its back side slide in the screw holders on the front edge of the roof. If the top
carved piece does not sit tightly in the holders,
take it off and slightly tighten the screws on the
back side and then repeat the aforementioned.
(Only traditional carved cuckoo clocks).
E
e.) Carefully open the paper bag at the bottom
of the clock that holds the weight chains.
Let them slowly run down to the floor.
Very carefully remove any knots in the chains.
Do not remove the clock from the wall when
adjusting the chains otherwise the chains might
come off the turning gears inside the clock.The
chains should be already pulled up so that the
hooks are all the way up to the bottom of the
house. If they are not, carefully pull them up
while the clock hangs on the wall.
!
f.) How to hook the pendulum in
Take the pendulum and put the top hook into
the hanger wire which you find in the slit in the
clock’s bottom panel.
g.) How to put weights on
Take the weights and hang them in the hooks of
the chains.
Make the clock run
5
a.) Setting the time
Silence the clock (see below # 8). Set the clock
to the exact time by moving the minute (long)
hand. Push down or pull silencing handle to make
cuckoo call and music play.
b.) Starting the pendulum
Slightly push the pendulum to the left or right
that it starts swinging and you hear a clicking
sound (tic-tac). Make sure that the clicking sound
is even to both sides. If it is not, slightly move
the bottom of the clock to the left or right until
the clicking sound is even.
23
E
Adjust the speed of the clock
6
Some of our have a screw pendulum.The speed
of the clock is regulated by the length of the
pendulum.The pendulum length can be changed
by turning the adjustment nut on the bottom of
the pendulum.
If the clock is running too fast, the pendulum is
too short.You must lengthen the pendulum by
loosening the nut (counter clockwise).
If the clock is running too slow, the pendulum
is too long.You must shorten the pendulum by
tightening the nut (clockwise).
➔
➔
If the clock runs too fast, take off the pendulum
and slightly move down the leaf/shield. Hang back
in the pendulum and try the clock. If it still runs
too fast, repeat the aforementioned.
If the clock runs too slowly, take off the pendulum and slightly move up the leaf/shield. Hang in
the pendulum and try the clock. If it still runs
too slowly, repeat the step.
➔
Winding the clock
7
Wind up
You wind 1-day cuckoo clocks by just pulling
the chains at the end where there is the ring
until the hooks with the weights on are all the
way up to the bottom panel of the clock.
You wind 8-day cuckoo clocks basically in the
same way.You might just want to lift the weight
with one hand while you pull the chain with the
other.You do not need to let the weights go
down all the way.You can wind it whenever
you like.
24
Switch off sound
8
Each cuckoo clock (despite models 80/1
and 1/4) has a handle to keep the clock silent.
The handle is either at the bottom of the
clock or at its left side when hanging on the
wall.
To silence the clock you have to push the
handle up/in.To listen to the sound
again you have to pull the handle or push it
down. Do not move the silencing handle while
the cuckoo calls or the music plays.
E
Night off
Removing the clock from the wall
a) If you want to remove the cuckoo clock from
the wall, please make sure that the weights are
totally pulled up.
b) Otherwise the chains may come off the
turning gears inside the clock.
c) Then take off weights, pendulum, and top
carved piece (only traditional carved cuckoo
clock), and bar the cuckoo door by pushing
down the bolt.Then you may take the clock
from the wall.

11
Clock loses time constantly
If the clock keeps losing time even though you
have moved up the leaf/shield, then the
leaf/shield is not properly fixed to the pendulum
stick.Take off the pendulum, put it face down on
a thick newspaper or cloth, take a small hammer,
and carefully hit on the black metal holders that
they tighter hold the pendulum stick.
Caution!You may hit your fingers with the hammer which may cause injuries. Hang the pendulum back on and push it to the side to make it
run.
➔
➔
Screw Pendulum:
The speed of the clock is regulated by the length
of the pendulum.The pendulum length can be
changed by turning the adjustment nut on the
bottom of the pendulum. If the clock is running
too slow, the pendulum is too long.You must
shorten the pendulum by tightening the nut
(clockwise).

Clock loses time
The pendulum moves to slowly.To correct that,
take off the pendulum, slightly move up the wooden leaf/shield, and hang the pendulum back on.
Then push the pendulum to the side to make it
run. If the clock still loses time, repeat the aforementioned.

Clock gains time
The pendulum moves too fast.To correct that,
take off the pendulum, slightly move down the
leaf/shield, put the pendulum back on, and make
the clock run. If the clock still gains time, repeat
the aforementioned.
ScrewPendulum:
The speed of the clock is regulated by the length
of the pendulum.The pendulum length can be
changed by turning the adjustment nut on the
bottom of the pendulum. If the clock is running
too fast, the pendulum is too short.You must
lengthen the pendulum by loosening the nut
(counter clockwise).

Cuckoo does not call
1.You may have forgotten to remove the clamps
that secure the bellows during transportation.
Pull up the weights completely.Take off weights,
pendulum, and top carved piece (only traditional
carved cuckoo clocks). Put a newspaper or cloth
on a table, put the clock face down on the newspaper/cloth, push up the small bolt that sets free
the back lid, take a screwdriver and put it in the
hole on the top end of the back lid (next to
the bolt), and pull open the lid.Then, pull out
the clamps that stick around the bellows.
8-day clocks with music only have one clamp.
2.You may have forgotten to unbar the cuckoo
door. Push up the bolt that blocks the cuckoo
door.
3.The night-off handle may not be in the correct
position.The clock has a manual night-off handle.
It is either underneath the cuckoo clock cabinet
(shaped like a ring) next to the hook of the left
weight or at the left wall (shaped like a bar).
If you move this up ( push it), you can turn the
cuckoo off. If you move it down (pull it), the
cuckoo calls on the half hour and on the hour.
Try the clock by moving the minute (long) hand
to the next half/full hour and see whether the
cuckoo calls. If that does not help immediately,
try to move the bar several times up and down
(in and out), and move the minute hand on the
next half/full hour
If the cuckoo still does not call, gently pull the
right weight (it is the weight for the cuckoo) a
little bit and try again by moving the minute hand
(long hand) on the half/full hour.
4. If none of the above help, please follow the
next steps:
Wind clock up by pulling up all weights.
Take off weights, pendulum and top part.
Take clock from the wall and gently shake it
in different positions, also upside down.
Make sure to hold the clock at the bottom
panel and at the roof, otherwise you might
either break the carvings/figurines or the clock
might fall out of your hands.
Hang the clock back on the wall and put all
parts back on.
Move minute hand (long hand) to the next
half/full hour and check if the cuckoo now calls.

Cuckoo door stays open
1.Try if you can easily close the door by hand.
If so, the clock does not hang in the right angle
on the wall. Make sure that the clock´s back
wall is parallel to the wall where it hangs, i.e. in a
right angle to the earth surface.To smoothe the
working of the door put a little oil on the door´s
hinges.

28
2. If you cannot easily close the door by hand,
completely pull up the weights, take off the
weights and pendulum, open the back lid (see
“cuckoo clock manual” #2a) and check in the
open back if the wire that is marked with a
red 1 is underneath the cuckoo´s tail. If not,
please move it underneath the tail. Close the
back lid, hang the clock back on the wall, and put
all parts back on.
15
Chain does not stay pulled up
Pull chain from other weight so that the weight
is completey up, and then take off that weight.
Secure this chain by putting the packing wire
through the uppermost part of the chain so
that it will not come off of the gear.
Turn the clock upside down, take the gear for
the fallen chain, and attempt to wind the chain
back around the gear.To get the gear to turn and
pull the chain back through, pull the chain at one
end to see if it turns.The chain gear will allow
you to turn it in one direction, and the other
direction will be blocked. Please try it to see
which direction the gear wheel should be turned.
If necessary, hook for weight and the ring on the
other end of the chain should be taken off and
then put back on.

Grinding noise while music plays
What could have happened is that the wire
holding the propeller of the music box was
bent accidentally.You must be two people
to fix that.
a) Wind up clock by pulling up all weights.
b) One person lifts clock carefully from the
wall, weights and pendulum still attached.
c) The other person opens the back lid of
the clock and slightly bends up the black wire
which is marked with a red X on the picture.
d) The front person moves the minute hand
(long hand) to next full hour while the back
person checks if the music movement starts
working after the cuckoo's call.
e) If the music box starts playing before or
during the cuckoo's call, you bent the wire
too far up. Bend it down a little and try the
clock again (see d)
f) When the music starts after the cuckoo
stopped calling, hang the clock back on
the wall.

Cuckoo calls early/late
Check if the cuckoo calls at the same time
distance to the half and the full hour. If so, the
minute hand must have been moved incorrectly.
To solve that problem, slowly move the minute
hand forwards.
As soon as you hear the clock beginning to
chime, immediately stop moving the hand.Then
loosen the bolt/screw that fixes the hands to the
clock´s face until you can move the minute hand
freely without moving the clockwork. Put the
minute hand on the time determined by the
chime you just heard and tighten the bolt fixing
the hands to the clockwork. Now, the clock
should work correctly.
19
Cuckoo does not correspond to set time
If at the full hour the cuckoo does not call the
hour (it calls more or less often than the hour
indicates), slowly move the minute hand forwards. As soon as you hear the clock beginning
to chime, immediately stop moving the hand, and
count how many times the cuckoo calls, move
the hour hand (short hand) on that hour and
push it a little bit towards the clock’s face.
!
Example: If clock cuckoos 5 times move
hour hand on 5 o’clock.
30
20
Hour hand falls always back on 6 o’clock.
Slowly move the minute (long hand) hand forwards. As soon as you hear the clock beginning
to chime, immediately stop moving the hand, and
count how many times the cuckoo calls, move
the hour hand (short hand) on that hour and
push it a little bit towards the clock’s face.
Example: If clock cuckoos 5 times move hour
hand on 5 o’clock.
21
Clock stops running
1. Make sure that all the weights are pulled up.
If a weight does not stay pulled up, see Chain
does not stay pulled up.
2. Check that nothing interferes with the pendulum. If the clock hangs in a room where it is
exposed to a strong current or breeze, either
block the current or hang the clock in a different
room where there is no wind.
3. Check that the clock hangs straight by listening
to the ticking sound. Push the pendulum until you
hear the clockticking. If you do not hear an even
tic-tac to both sides, slightly tilt the clock to the
side until the tic-tac is even and regular.
You enhance your hearing skills by putting a
wooden stick to the bolt that holds the hands
and to you ear.
4. Make sure that the pendulum does not rub at
the clock case. If so, put the clock in an upright
position, parallel to the wall, i.e. in a right angle
to the earth surface.
E

5.Wrapping material or dust could be in the
clock´s movement. Pull the chains completely
up.Take off weights, pendulum and top part
(only traditional carved cuckoo clocks).
Take clock from the wall and gently shake it
in different positions, also upside down.
Chime does not sound clear
1. Make sure that you removed the transportation paper. Put clock face down on a thick newspaper or cloth. Push up the small bolt that sets
free the back lid, take a screwdriver and put it in
the hole on the top end of the back lid (next to
the bolt), and pull open the lid.
Pull the paper from the chime wire. Close the
lid, hang the clock back on the wall, and put on
all the parts.
Make sure to hold the clock at the bottom
panel and at the roof, otherwise you might
either break the carvings/figurines or the
clock might fall out of your hands.

Clock makes a slight noise
about 5 minutes before the hour.
A technical function in the clockwork is
preparing the next clock striking function.
This is a normal function and not a defect.
34
Only one weight move down.
The clock weights move steadily downward
when all of the clock functions are operating.
If you have turned the cuckoo call switch to
OFF (or cuckoo/music), then the weights for
those functions will not move.
Weights does not go together down.
This is a normal function and not a defect.
