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

I made a new video.... you still think its the setting lever jumper ?

From the video you can see the yoke isn't moving at all, this indicates it might have jumped out from the groove in the sliding pinion and that is why there is no spring action when you put it in the Winding position.

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

If you took pix at each stage of strip down, show the pix so fault be shown to you.

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.

Thanks, 

I could fix the lossen stem problem, the stem is hold by the keyless works no problem.

Position C ( time setting ) works quite good , date is changing as well and movement stops.

Postion B ( GMT & Date ) does not work

Position A ( winding ) does not work.

 

I got to find schematics or  learn to understand what happens in the several positions

 

Well its a hard way to perfection : )

After connecting the Yoke spring to the settings lever 

gmt/date / time setting work now like a charm.

 

only winding does not work or it is so subtle I don´t see and hear it.

I may have to buy a new winding pinion.

This never rotates with the stem, or maybe its on the backside of the movement ?

 

kind regards to all supporters

happy Oliver

Anyone knows a video where I can see what happens when a winding the movement through the winding pinion.

Does the winding pinion rotate in that position ( in my case it never rotates ? )

It worked when I first opened the movement but now I may have disconnected someting else on the backside of the movement ?

kind regards

Oliver

A square stem into the square hole of the winding pinion and the winding pinion does not rotate when the stem is wound means only one of two things.

Most probable; the square hole in the winding pinion is rounded off.
New winding pinion required.

Not probable; The stem is rounded off.
New stem required.

Thank you very much !!!

So the winding pinion does rotate when the stem/crown is in the 1st position full in ?

Thats what I expected,  I found one here but I can barely see that it has a square hole.

hmm the Winding pinion usually has a round hole but the clutch has a square..
The teeth of the cluch makes the Winding pinion rotate when they meet.

The clutch lever pushes the clutch towards the Winding pinion when the set lever is manipulated.
What you have in your link there is the Winding pinion I can be wrong..

    • Hi Dan, Welcome to the forum.
    • A soak in diesel fuel, naphta for day or two,  ends the old story of heads popping off the screws. I remove balance cock pallets and soak the rest, give one dip in a fluid I can stand the odor of. Any cheap multipurpose oil would do. I use several solutions, detergent seperately and brush extesively.  
    • Hello forum folks, I've been tinkering with watches for maybe 5 years now. I'm very much a beginner but I have been practicing on cheap watches and movements that it is ok to break. I've managed to make my own watch dial from a brass sheet, including brushing, rhodium plating, printing, and creating applied markers and numerals. I've also made a "smart" watch using epoxy-based putty for the case and my electronics knowledge. I have some basic skills in metal finishing including polishing and plating. So I've mostly worked on the non-movement aspects of watchmaking and am interested into learning about servicing movements. I live in the Milwaukee area and was thrilled to see MATC (local trade school) on lists of schools that teach watchmaking -- just to have that dashed when I contacted them and the class has been discontinued for lack of interest  So for now, I have online and book resources to learn. I have a mostly cheap watch collection other than a Longines that I treasure. I have a few different old timex mechanicals I got off of ebay, including 2 from JerseyMo which I saw is on this forum. I have have way more hobbies than time so I'll probably be around off and on. Dan
    • First thing would be to remove the pinions. They are sometimes quite well rivetted, so this may involve turning away some of the rivet or being willing to sacrifice the wheel (it could easily be distorted beyond use in punching the pinion out). Then you need to compare the hole in the wheel you want to use to the diameter on the pinion that will be pressed and rivetted in. If too big it gets tricky, you'll need to sleeve/bush the hole very securely. I would open the hole further, then chamfer both sides, make the bush with an undersized hole, then fit it in. Swage the bush with a convex punch in the hole from both sides, then a flat punch that is larger than the bush. The idea is to deform metal into the two chamfers on the wheel. Finally flatten and clean up. Now open the hole to receive the pinion. If the hole is too small it's easy, just open it up and press/rivett the pinion in.
    • Thanks @jdm its easier if you know the correct name / term, that helps a lot.
