Hello Jimmy - At 83 I know your feelings. Have a look at my follow up report further below this entry. I spent a lot of time getting to know the wiring circuit and then removed and stripped the clock. Mine had been operating 24/7 for 35+ years so I did not have high hopes of oiling plastic gears, it did help but not enough. I found replacing the gear trains not too difficult but it was a bit of a juggle to replace the cover as the intermediary group had to be just right. While there I suggest a fine emery clean of the contact points. Setting up those contact points is crucial as described in my report. Good Luck - Peter Hoskin

Reassembling my teasmade 854 but unsure where the red lead from the light connects to. (pulled it off accidentally due to clumsiness)
