If the clock hands have stopped moving or are not keeping time properly:
Firstly, try replacing the AA battery. If that doesn’t fix it, then it may be that the battery is not making a good connection with the quartz mechanism. A simple fix to this is to re-insert the AA battery so the tip of the '+' end of the battery is lifted slightly in its socket to give it a firmer connection the metal in the quartz mechanism.
We also find that sometimes wiping a slightly damp cloth on the ends of the batteries also improves the electrical contacts and makes the mechanism take the intended battery current.
