Generally when the pendulum won’t swing it is either a circuit problem or the battery is weak. If you change the battery and it still doesn’t work then I would order a new movement. You can get them from Timesavers, Ronell, clockkit, etc. pretty cheap. That is one thing I won’t repair is a quartz movement. If the pendulum doesn’t go with a new battery it is replaced or the same with the time keeping or chiming of the movement. Like Ed I have found some with wires broke going to the coil that moves the magnet but it is futile IMHO. I was told that the resistance in ohms is changed on the coil if you try to resolder it therefore does not get the power it needs to move the magnet and swing the pendulum.
