... I'm not familliar with your particular clock, but, I'm assuming you may have a;
BATTery operated, wall-hanging, 'self-syncronizing' clock with 'hands' on it.
These are often marketed as 'Atomic' Clocks that 'keep perfect time - all the time'.
Generally these work by 'accuratizing' the Minute-hand as it approaches the 'top-of-the-hour' position (e.g. the 60th. or the zero- minute marker at '12'. They often achieve this by either 'double-Clocking' or 'half-clocking' (doublespeed or halfspeeding) the electric pulse that makes the 'SECONDs' hand advance to it's next mark. These 'SynCHRONO-ize' to a low-frequency Amplitude-Modulated (AM) radio-wave signal, (perhaps near 430Khz?) emminating from a source near "The Atomic Clock" out in Colorado (I believe).

One that I used to have hanging had recommended something like the following:

-manually adjust the time (via the small grey wheel near the BATTery, but set it about 7 to 12 minutes 'early' or before the actual correct time, (preferably at about 10 min. before an Hour).
-then remove the one " double A" . . .
... battery (for about 30sec.) and reinstall battery.
-then hang it up, and watch for the second-hand to do its 'Double-clocking' (for part of it's revolutions ) as the Minute-hand apprpaches th '12'. {note; it may take ~2 or 3 hour-cycles for the minute-hand 'to catch-up on all it's "Lost" minutes}.
(then, hopefully, your model will stay 'synchonized' there, for that 'Hour's' setting, and accept It (DST Hour value) with accuratizing Minutes. (and not go crazey over the next few days trying to get back to "Real TIME"). /mm

I have an electronic Howard Miller wall clock that chimes but is two hours behind the time showing


Move the hour hand counterclockwise two hours back and then just move the minute hand clockwise until the correct time is set.

I have a WT-8005U digital wall clock. Bought 5/27/14. It will advance the hour by 2 hours or will advance the day by a day. What do I do to keep this from happening?


I do not have the same clock, but I assume the atomic receiver is the same. I found my clock went berserk if it was anywhere near anything else electronic. I had it on a dresser that was sharing space with my wireless printer. Once I relocated the printer, the clock went back to normal. You may have a different issue, but maybe check that nothing is around that would cause interference.

Radio controlled Barolo Clock with hands keeps resetting an hour behind.


It sounds like it is receiving a DST signal instead of an MSF signal or vice versa depending on your country, they are one hour apart.
Unless this clock has a choice of signal settings the best way is to gently remove and reset the hour hand to the correct hour.

The second hand on our LaCrosse atomic clock has stopped moving but the clock continues to keep perfect time. How do we get the second hand turning again?


The manual for one of their clocks says the clock will change the second hand to two-second intervals to conserve energy when the battery voltage gets low. Perhaps your battery is VERY low.

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.
