    Cuckoo Clock

    Hi guys,i bought a cuckoo clock in Germany,it plays 2 songs,it plays 2 songs on the hour and half hour,,which means one of the 3 acorns reaches its full length way ahead of the other 2,,is there a way of setting it to play only the 1 song????????..my understanding is that it is a 12 hour clock..any help would help..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    Not sure if this helps. >>>All cuckoo clocks with three weights play music. The 1-Day clocks play two songs an hour, one song to the full and one song to the half hour. The 8-Day clocks play also two songs, but they alternate on the hour.

    No emissions to worry about Hec,,i did not buy the diesel model>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    Are you not able to pull the one acorn independently of the other two? 


    My parents had a cuckoo clock, also, which I managed to get.  I took it to a clock shop locally to have it cleaned and repaired, as the chains weren't moving.  It was pricey ($150), but the clock means a lot to me.  Unfortunately, I haven't figure out where to hang it. 


    I have an antique 8-day clock that needs repair, also pricey, and the big antique grandfather clock at my son's also needs attention. He also has my parents' 8-day, which probably needs servicing, too.  Who's got that kind of money for clock repairs.


    The clock in the photo is absolutely gorgeous!

    All the acorns are independent Bob,mine is a 1 day clock,we bought it in Germany while on holiday,,it is not something we would like to lose..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..
    Bob/PKB

    Do you want to change it because it is inconvenient to have to pull one cord more often or because you dont like the noise?

    No way Bob,we like the 2 songs that are played,,but it is supposed to play 1 song on the half hour and 2 on the hour,,but it plays 2 on the hour and half hour,,which means overnight the musical acorn reaches its length overnight,,it is not supposed to do that,,the 2 songs are "Edelweiss and The Happy Wanderer".>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..The clock above is similar to mine..the water wheel moves and where the wood chopper is i have a man with a walking stick and the stick counts the hour and the bird comes out and coo coos,,and the dancers rotate and twirl..>>>>>>><<<<<<<..

    It sounds absolutely charming! Do call a clock repair business and see what they recommend. Let us know!

    I've got my grandma's cuckcoo clock. She brought it back here from the black forests of Germany ( Bavaria ) in 1937 .......when she went back there for a visit. Anyway, she brought back here with her- - - two cuckoo clocks and a floor clock that stands over 6 feet tall. The cuckcoo clock I've got has weights and a pendulum. It's the real thing........nothing electronic about it. When it strikes, the little bird come out and says, " coo coo , coo cooooo."
