Ridgeway grandfather clocks are decorative mechanical clocks made by the Ridgeway Clock Company. The company has continuously made this style of clock since the 1920s, making it the oldest American manufacturer of grandfather clocks.
To check a Ridgeway clock's serial number, simply turn the clock around and find the serial number on its back. After you find the serial number, check the Ridgeway website to find matching models.
Common grandfather clock repairs include fixing a stopped pendulum, adjusting the speed of an inaccurate clock and correcting the chime sequence. Some repairs are manually fixable, while others require a professional repair service to correct.
Find an estimate of the value of a grandfather clock by consulting Savage and Polite's Identification & Price Guide. The closer your clock is to a past sale listed in the resource, the better chance there is that the latter's sales price is as an estimate of your clock's value.
Some basic steps to repair a grandfather clock are to realign the weights, unlock the hands, shift the pendulum bob down or up in the shaft, reset the moon dial and level the clock. To repair an unmoving pendulum, wind the weights, and unlock the hands.
To begin troubleshooting a grandfather clock, note any irregularities in its behavior. If the pendulum does not swing, it may be because the clock hands are touching each other. Nudging the hour hand toward the dial or bending the minute hand outward slightly to clear it may fix the problem.
The moon phase clock on a grandfather clock is very accurate if set correctly. In addition, the clock must be functioning properly. Once a grandfather clock stops running, the moon phase clock also shuts down.
