Timex westminster anniversary chime clock doesn't chime correct number

My clock doesn't chime correctly on the hour. It was chiming 11 times at 7:00pm and the next morning it isn't chiming at all. It is keeping the correct time.

Take the batteries out from the base, where the chime mechanism is. Wait till it gets close (20 seconds till) to a specific hour time, like 8:00 or 9:00, replace the batteries for the chime mechanism. And then count the chimes at the hour. If they are correct, you are set. If they are incorrect, turn the time back 15 minutes before the hour and bring it right back and monitor the chimes again. Hopefully this should fix it. Please post the results.

How do I turn off chime?


Hi mfchester,

You can easily change the time of your Timex watch by following the steps below.

1. With the time and date showing, press the top left button.

2. Press the right top button (this sets seconds).

3. Press the bottom left button. This flashes the hour; press the top right button until you have the correct hour (there is no symbol for am, pm will show if pm).

4. Press the bottom left button, minutes flash. Press the top right button until correct minutes.

5. Press the bottom left button, month flashes. Press the top right button until correct.

6. Press bottom left button, date flashes. Press the top right button until correct.

7. Press bottom left button, day flashes. Press right top button until correct.

8. Press bottom left button, time format flashes (can be set to 24 hour clock). If correct, you're done. Press top left button if you're done (can be pressed at any step if you're finished).

To turn off the chime and alarm: Press bottom left until in the alarm screen. Then press the top right button repeatedly until the CHIME or CH symbol is gone and/or ALARM or ALM to disappear, then press the bottom left button to go back to main time.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i synchronize my chimes on a westminster quartz abacus 401c wall clock


If it is like mine you press the test button until you hear the chime. Wait for the hour chime to go and count it. If it chimes once for 1PM and you need it set to 6PM then you press the test button to reset the chime and repeat press the button 5 times. This will set the chime to 6 PM. If you get lost on the time press until it makes no noise. This means you are 11PM or later and continue to then press until it makes noise again. Count the hour chimes and you are at the count in the AM. Repeat the steps and keep pressing to get to the proper AM or PM hour count..

Have a Galleria Grandfather clock thats chimes are off. How do I get them correct? Bought it at an auction and did not get any information with it. It chimed correctly in the beginning.


I suspect that the mechanism needs cleaning.

Take a look inside and if there is the slightest sign of dirt (particularly on the striking mechanism) then it should behave properly after cleaning.
