When attempting to rewind cable on the above clock time drum,the cable will only wind on the drum only two rotations and then stops.

Can you advise me what I must do to complete the winding process?

Hi John,
I would need more information if I was going to diagnose the problem. You say you were attempting to "rewind" the cable. Did you take the cable off? When it stops does it come to a hard stop like metal against metal?
I will be happy to help you if you give me some more background.
