Asian 2836 pushed to hard on the stem removal button

Question

Hi,

I had to fix a hand and I obviously pushed the stem release button too deep : (

The stem doesn´t click in and I cannot change time, date and gmt anymore or wind it up.

I found some articles in the web talking about the keyless hacking problem.

 

Did someone manage to repair that problem ?

If yes, are there any good repair tutorials on the web.

 

Any help appreciated

 

Thanks 

Oliver

Don't feel bad, happens even on the Swiss made ones. It helps if you pull out the crown to the handsetting position before depressing the plunger. You need to use a screwdriver where the width is the same as the slot across the plunger.

When installing the crown/stem, press on the plunger and insert.

Like anvil says, should push with screwdriver width same as slot.

Refer to posting     Tudor/Eta 2750 stem    To see my drawings for safe stem removal.

As for now,  open the page  eternaltools.com , shows name and pic of parts.

1.lift the hour wheel

2 unscrew the minute train bridge ( one large scerw) and remove the minute train cover.

You can then remove the date  ring plate. Take extra care date ring bends easy.

Take pic at each stags of strip down helps the reinstallation.

Good luck pal.

Thanks for your help

Got it all going but when I deatched the big plate the small keyless part came with it, now I´m a bit 

struggling how to reassemble the movement. Is the position of 1 and 2 correct, maybe 2 holds the stem gear ?

Anyone did this job and knows what to care for?

Thanks

Thank you very much, that video worked out for me !! : )

I could finish the watch and it is working.

My only problem is the stem does not stay in the watch. 

Seems I distorted soome plates that hold the stem ; (

But for now I´m very confident.

kind regards

Oliver

There is a pin underneath part no2 that has to sit in the groove of the stem, this is the stem release. If it isn't sitting in the groove of the stem, the stem will just pull out.

Hi Jaycey,

I think that is my problem, In my case there is only a hole, so I pushed that pin out forever and that is why my stem doesn`t stay in the movement. Do you think that can be corrected, ie. I can get a spare part for the pin ? or is there a workaround ?

Thank you very much for your support

nice try, you probably damaged the releasebutton so it is now stuck and the release will not return to its original position.

Yes seems I pressed it through, as I can see through the hole : (

is this issue reparable or can I kick the movement in the garbage now ?

thanks

Oliver

Yes, it’s the part you are pressing on to remove the stem.

It should have 2 pins on one side, one larger than the other.
The larger pin is the stem release button. The smaller pin locates into the groove in the stem.
There is a third small pin on the other side that engages with the large plate (setting lever spring) this gives you the 3 setting positions, winding, date set & hand set.

Some repair using a modified brass taper pin. The pin is approx. friction fitted then marked for size and then some of the taper is turned down to make it a straight pin. This is achieved on a lathe or jacot tool.
