my cuckoo clock won't cuckoo......and i just got it today :(

i was so looking forward to receiving this stupid cuckoo clock from the time i ordered it and i set it up and it is keeping time great, but no cuckoos on the hour or half hour. i removed all the clamps like they said in the instructions. does anyone have a cuckoo clock? any suggestions on what to look for? does it need time to regulate itself or something? it's been running for about 2 1/2 hours now. it's a really beautiful clock, but it was expensive and i want it to cuckoo darn it!!!! (o and btw, it has a silencer thing, but i have it in the 'on' position which is when it's supposed to make noise). i really don't want to send it to a clock repair guy already lol

  • Maybe the switch should be on "off". Did you try that?

  • Have you tried putting the silencer switch the other way? Just in case? It could have been put together backwards. I don't know...I guess I'm not much help...
