I have a Dakota Daniels grandfather clock. The chimes work, the pendulum works, but the clock hands don't move.

Change the batteries. The weight makes the pendulum and chimes work, but the clock in this thing is battery operated :>)

Accurate hourly Westminster chime movement tolls the hour - Automatic night shut off

    How do I make my clock chime the correct number of times?

    whenever the battery is weak the chime changes....whenever you change battery the clock chimes to the last time it chimed so...try setting your clock to next hour of chime n then move the hands of clock to next hour n your clock will chime accordingly.....
    in this way waiting for chime to finish ...set to clock to present time ....waiting for it to chime every time the minute hand passes 12

    How can I get my clock to chime the right time? It is always one hour too much.

    • First see if changing the time with the battery out changes the time without changing the cycle on the chime - I could just imagine somebody adjusting the clock for daylight savings and the clock doesn't change it's chime cycle correctly with the battery a certain way - in or out - maybe it's the opposite and you have to take the battery out and somebody didn't now you have to leave it in.
    • Check the internet for the original manual if you know the model.
    • Look for clues to setting the chime on the back? is there a separate knob - are the batteries both good?
    Still not working after playing with it? Here is the mechanical way to fix it:
    Sounds great, but it still is chiming the wrong time after playing with it? This will fix it:
    • Set the clock for exactly at the chime - I suggest 3 o'clock chime - the hands will be wrong (2 or 4 or whatever)
    • Remove the battery(s) - I do custom imprinted clock faces and it seems to me that 3 o'clock is the easy place for me to put the hands back.
    • Take the clock apart - usually it is tiny screws on the back, or you will see 3 or 4 v shaped wires. push the v wire out of one side - they are springs that some clocks use to hold the rim instead of the screws - they are easier than they look - just pull one side and remove.
    • Gently pull up each hand off the shaft. I hope you have fingernails.
    • Replace the hands back at exactly the time that they are supposed to be (3 o'clock in my example) - you start with the hour hand and gently push on the spindle make it look level and all the way on - then the minute hand at 12 also level
      • Remember to play with the time first so you'll be happy that you put the hands exactly where the chime should start.
      • Remember to make that time be exactly on the hour with the small hand and exactly on the 12 with the big hand so the hands line up correctly.

    The chimes on my **** will chime every 15 minutes and count on the hour for a few hours then the chimes stop working. How do I fix this problem?

    If you've had the clock for a number of years, or if it was purchased as old stock, the movement may just be bad. If it has a Hermle brand movement that holds two C cell batteries, make sure to use new Duracell batteries. That's the only quartz movement I've seen that specifically requires a particular brand of battery. I have used Varta brand, which is an equivalent that seems to work fine as well. You may need to check with your local clock shop, or search for clock repair in your general area.

    Halo Grandfather Clock won't chime hour

    In my eyes there are two kinds, ones that are a real grandfather clock that runs on gravity using a series of weights and gears with different counterweights for chimes and running the clock itself, and there are the show pieces that look like a grandfather clock but run on newer tech and electronics. If a real one then would try first pulling the weights to the top. They are usually shaped into a pinecone or something. If weight is at bottom them have to pull corresponding chain with weight till the weight is at the top of case. As "time" goes by the weights lower. You should have different counterweights for the clock, chimes, dancing figures and whatever else it may have. All the weights move at different "speeds" so you have to keep an eye on them to make sure it keeps correct time. I would recommend consulting the manufacturer if possible. There are so many kinds out there is really hard to tell by such a short video.

    Strausbourg Manor Wall Clock chime adjustment

    It is normal for the average wall clock. Of course, this can be adjusted, but without watch/clockmaking knowledge it is impossible, because first you need to find out which part of the movement is causing early chiming - and there are plenty of them.
    Super fine adjustment can be found only in top of the range clocks. Hundreds of hours of craftsmenship are spent to adjust and fine tune them. That's why they cost a fortune.
    If you can not live with that early chiming, you have to bring your clock down to the watch/clock repair shop and ask for help. Be ready to pay quite a money, as this job takes the skill and a lot of time.

    Rate me, please.

    Need setting instructions for clock movement

    Howard Miller offers this feature: This is how it works.

    Automatic Night-Time Silencing Option
    Grandfather Clocks will offer a night time shutoff option. There are 3 options on this lever.
    1) "Night On" - This will keep the chime striking 24 hours
    2) "Night Off" - This position will turn off the chiming between 10:15PM and 7:00AM
    3) "Strike" - This position will allow the movement to strike the hour without the Westminster melody if the other Westminster melody lever is turned to Silent.

    Hope this helps.

    Timex westminster anniversary chime clock doesn't chime correct number

    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.
