  • Regularly inspect the gear teeth for any signs of wear or damage.
  • Ensure proper alignment of gears for smooth operation.
  • Avoid exposing plastic gears to extreme temperatures to prevent deformation.
  • Follow manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance and care of the gears.
  • Consider replacing gears if they show signs of wear to prevent clock malfunction.

Lubrication of Plastic Gears:

  • Plastic gears for clocks do not require lubrication due to the material’s self-lubricating properties.
  • Avoid applying any lubricants as they can attract dust and debris, affecting gear performance.
  • Regular cleaning of gears with a soft cloth is sufficient to maintain smooth operation.
  • Ensure gears are free from any dirt or debris that can cause friction and wear.
  • Proper maintenance of plastic gears will ensure long-lasting performance in clock mechanisms.
