It could be a number of things including a spring that is not connected, or a pad cup that is not adjusted correctly. Without seeing the instrument it is nearly impossible to diagnose the problem. My advice is to show it to your teacher and if he/she cannot fix the problem, then bring it to a repair person. Woodwind instruments tend to be very temperamental and the best thing would be for you to learn how to make adjustments to your own instrument. Good luck!

Well then in that case, my first piece of advice would be to GET A TEACHER!!! Would you want to be treated by a doctor who taught himself how to practice medicine by reading articles off of WebMD?? Would you bring your car to a mechanic who taught himself how to work on cars by reading the Haynes repair manuals? The problem with your clarinet may be nothing more than an incorrect fingering and a teacher could help you with that.

Thanks agai, actually i took it apart and put it back together a few times and cleaned it and it started working fine all of a sudden, thanks for the help and advice. See I came across this clarinet and decided to get it and see where i go with it, didn't really think of taking classes, same with piano, guitar, and trumpet, I can play them all by ear, but now im actually learning to read music, and really like the clarinet just don't have the time for classes at the time. I play for fun, relaxes me. :-)

Oh my word! If by "i took it apart and put it back together a few times and cleaned it" you mean that you unscrewed the keys took keys and bars off the instrument and put them back on your self, PLEASE never do that again! I know from personal experience (with my own flute when I was about 10) that you can do much more harm than good when repairing an instrument that you have not been trained to repair. (I ended up causing about $500 worth of damage to my $2000 flute, because I thought that I should take all the keys off to polish the instrument better.)

I'm glad that you enjoy music so much, but I don't want you to end up doing more harm than good to your instrument.
