    Hi Lance,
    Sorry, I should have asked if you heard humming.
    There are a lot of things that can cause the hands not to move. The trouble shooting list in the pdf covers some things you can try without dis-assembling the movement. As you know accutrons are much different than the average mechanical watch and require unique repair techniques and tools. If after trying the steps listed in the manual you find that dis-assembly is necessary and because your watch has much sentimental value I would suggest sending it to a qualified accutron repair person or practicing first with some spare movements until you feel comfortable and confident enough to tackle your watch.
    This may have already been your plan but I thought I would mention it just in case.
    Hope it turns out to be something simple. Please let us know Lance.
