Default Problem with Stem (Bellmatic 4006-6011)

Hello to everyone,

I have recently purchased a Seiko Bellmatic 4006-6011. It came without crown and when I oppened I saw there weren't some parts either.

I found this stem on Ebay and the seller told me it would fit in the 4006-6011 but when I try to push to engage it doesn't. I mean, it is not the large because I know already I have to cut. It doesn't engage and I can't move the hands or the alarm dial.

I contacted again and he told me again it would fit for ALL Bellmatic.

Could anyone help me why it doesn't fit?

(Sorry for my english)

Thank you so much!

ps. I will post pictures asap

Did you try pushing in the stem release button when inserting the stem? If it was missing other parts, it may not have all the parts there for the stem to catch? or maybe out of place?

Thank you for your recommendation. Yes, it was actually my second thought. Now I believe the clutch or similar part is not working properly. I would try to open it and see what is happening inside.

Download the Tech Manuals if you haven't already. They are very helpful.

Assuming the old stem is not broken with a part of it still in there, then its quite likely to be rust on various components that hold in the stem. Its common for the o-ring seal round the stem to perish and if it comes from a humid country, then the parts that interact with the stem rust. Once you have a look, check the button you press down to release the stem. if it does not move down easily, or return, then it probably needs a complete strip down.
