Instructions for Cuckoo Clock

Let’s see how to install a cuckoo traditional quartz, in a few simple steps.

(Speaking of cuckoo quartz, we refer to a battery-powered cuckoo clock).

1 Once the cuckoo is out of the box, gently place the needles on 12:00 hours
2 At the back of the clock, open the control panel and place the battery: 2 batteries R14 (also called size C) (commonly used all over the world) for the cuckoos quartz without music, and 3 batteries of type R14 for cuckoo quartz with wall clocks. (attention to the poles recess + / unlike many other electronic devices batteries are placed in the same direction)
3. Close the back panel.
4. Hang the cuckoo on the wall in the desired location (usually at eye level or see more up to about 2 meters).
5. Hang the pendulum on the hook for its effect, as well as the two fictitious counterweight.
6. Turn the large needles minutes in the direction of clockwise until the desired time, but be careful! Take care and you stop every hour, allowing time for the cuckoo sing!

You are now ready to enjoy your new protégé!

Additional information

-On the side of the clock, is a switch that will stop the cuckoo sing. The time continues to run.

-All quartz cuckoos are fitted with a light sensor: as soon as it gets dark, the cuckoo automatically stop singing.

-It is strongly recommended to use alkaline type batteries. First because they last longer than ordinary batteries, but also, and this is important in our case, they remain constant to the end! Unlike the other batteries that weaken nicely and that one day does not give enough power to our cuckoo to out sing. (note that this is not trivial, because seeing your clock always at the time, but the cuckoo never leaving, the first idea you have, will be thinking about a defect..) In this case simply follow our valuable advice; change the batteries 🙂

-The weight as well as the rockers are purely decorative. You can put them or remove them as you like. Some customers have even bought a cuckoo quartz to lay it on a table!

Setting the time: If the song of the cuckoo does not match time

Here are two ways to synchronize the number of song of the cuckoo with what time it is:

Method 1
-Remove the batteries from the cuckoo.
-Position the needles so that they indicated 12.15 (turning only the large needles as many turn to be)
-Replace the batteries in the cuckoo
-Upgrade the cuckoo hour (turning only the minute hand counterclockwise clockwise until what time it is)
(this method works, because by removing the batteries, the cuckoo resets to its original position which is 12: 00.)

Method 2
Turn the minute hand (the big one) in the direction of clockwise up to 12: 00. Count the number of song (3 songs, for example), then carefully turn the hour hand (small) about 3 hours. Your cuckoo is now synchronized. You just only to put it back on time, with the minute hand (the big one) in the sense of a clockwise, until what time it is. You can quickly turn the minute hand without needing to leave the cuckoo sound every time.

The above instructions have been written by us. Based on official instructions, we thought it good to detail them at best.
