If the electric wires are all hooked up inside and the glass is not cracked, the transformer is probably the reason why it doesn't light up.

Look on facebook for Antique Neon Advertising Clocks. Lots of guys there sell parts. Get an electronic transformer.

You can test your transformer,but only if you have a basic knowledge of electricity. 3000 volts is no fun to get hit with(although it probably won't kill ya). Your clock is a glo dial,the clock face has been painted over.go to Neonclock.org and you can find many pictures of them,probably advertised a company,and many also advertised radio stations.
Antique Neon and Advertising Clocks is my page on Facebook,and we have members there that can supply you with any parts you may need,including a new face for it.. I'm actually working on mine right now.
