The clock only runs for a few minutes and then it stops.  The movement is not actually running on it's own power.  The act of putting the pendulum in motion causes the clock to run until it eventually slows to a stop.  This can actually a good sign.  The fact that it does only run for a few minutes generally indicates there may be no broken parts.  If the clock is ticking and the hand is moving forward, this shows that the powered movement is possible through the gear train.  Usually, basic cleaning and servicing of the movement is what is needed.  This is a task for a professional repairman, or you can do it yourself with the lessons contained in the course, "Clock Repair 1 and 2".  Another possibility is that the clock is out of beat.
