Manually turn the minute hand forward until the 16 westminster chimes sound and then the hour strikes. Then remove the minute hand (it will go on in four positions) and put it back on at the 12 o'clock position. The chimes should now be back into sync.

Pressing the red button advances the chime count by one. Continue to advanced the chime count until it matched the hour shown on the clock face.

Please follow the steps below on how to set the alarm on your seth thomas mantel pendulum clock.
1. Determine if your Seth Thomas mantel clock is a 7-day clock or an 8-day clock. On most models it will say right on the face of the clock which type it is. Seven-day clocks must be wound every 7 days, and 8-day clocks must be wound every 8 days. If you are unsure you should wind your clock every seven days.
2. Look on the back of the clock. You will see three large holes (just large enough for the clock winding key to fit into) plus one or two smaller holes (often just large enough for the small end of the key to fit into). The two smaller holes are for speeding up or slowing down the clock and for turning the chimes off and on. The three larger holes are the ones we are interested in--they are the ones we will need to wind every 7 or 8 days. On some models the three winding holes are on the front of the clock. Winding instructions are the same, regardless of where the winding holes are located.
3. Push the large end of your clock winding key gently into the hole on the right as you look at the back of the clock. This hole allows you to wind the 15-minute chimes. Gently turn the key clockwise. Keep turning it until you feel resistance and the key stops turning. Remove the key.
4. Insert the large end of your key gently into the center hole. This hole allow you to wind the main clock mechanism, which allows the clock to run and to keep time. Turn the key clockwise firmly but gently until you feel resistance. When the key no longer wants to turn simply remove it.
5. Insert the large end of the key into the hole on the left. This winds the hour chimes. Turn the key clockwise firmly but gently until you meet with resistance. When the key no longer turns easily remove it and place your clock back on your mantel. Your clock is now set to run for 7 or 8 days, depending on the model you own.
6. Use your hand to start the pendulum swinging once the Seth Thomas mantel clock has been set to the right time. The pendulum should be located in the back of the clock. The clock will not keep time if the pendulum is not moving.
Hope it helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Try CAREFULLY cleaning the mechanism with naphtha lighter fluid. Lighter fluid is high grade naphtha. Be careful not to allow it to run on to the face and electronics. It may damage the face with stain or remove any decals or cemented numerals. It may only take a small amount to clean the shaft bearings. The lighter fluid cleans and lubricates without leaving a film. If you can, while the fluid is on the gears, manually turn the clock forward 12 hours. That will rotate all the gears fully. Us the fluid sparingly!
