My grandmother used to have this grandfather clock in our house. It was still working after moving the clock from one city to another. It suddenly stopped on a fine day. I tried everything, but no avail, it was dead.
We moved it upstairs and the clock started ticking, with the mechanism off the hook which it should stay. After a few weeks or a month, it stopped again. I think something was stuck in the mechanism or something needs to be replaced. It has an even tick-tock and the chimes and strike are good. I don't overwind it, because that I don't want to break that clock.
P.S. The clock is about 30 years and above old. It was bought in early 1980s.
What do you suggest, repair it or place a new movement in the case?
