    It will chime on the quarter hours but not correctly on the hour - it will chime only 3 times when it is 6:00 etc.

How do I get it to chime on every hour


most chiming clocks only chime on the hour from 6 am to 9 pm
if it is a digital clock with a chimer the set it to 12 hour and not 24 hour
make sure that the chime has a good battery in the chime circuit and it is set to chime on the correct hour
If the statement made to you was correct then it would be chiming at night instead of the day

How do I synchronize a Grandfather Clock to chime correctly on the right hour?


Count the number of times the clock strikes, while leaving the minute hand pointing at the twelve, move the hour hand ( short hand) to the number it struck. ( this is the only time you should ever move the hour hand yourself). Tighten the hour hand by pressing the hour hand in towards the dial just a little. This can be done by placing a thumb nail on each side of the base of the hour hand at the center shaft. You do not want the hand to touch the dial. Now run your clock up to a quarter after, and let it chime. Now the half hour, the third quarter, and finally the hour. It should strike the correct hour if done correctly. Short version, move minute hand(long hand) to twelve so that it's pointing straight up. 2 move hour hand(short hand) back one hour. 3 tighten hour hand by pushing in toward dial. 4 check the function by advancing the clock one quarter hour at a time letting it chime in between quarters, then counting the strike on the hour. Hope this helps, and not confuses. Good Luck

My clock chimes the correct amount of chimes on all hours except 7. At 7 it chimes 5 times


In a quartz movement clock, with a problem like this, the chime box (or whole movement) will need to be replaced. Timesavers.con carries a large selection of chiming quarts movements.

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.

Our wall clock was not wound a couple of months ago (it is a chime clock that chimes on the hour and half hour with weights) and when we rewound it, everything works fine except that the chime is out of...


You were not very specific about you clock description, Many of the German clocks were using auto correct features.

You may not have this function.

Move the hour hand to the correct hour.

Hope this tip help you.

How do you syncronize the chimes to the actual time? I inherited the clock and no instruction manual, The chimes are two hours behind the time.. Thanks


Are the hands held on by a nut? usually you can remove the nut with your fingers or a pair of pliers wrapped in cloth or duct tape to prevent scratching.
Before removing turn the minute hand (minute hand only and clockwise only; do not manually turn the hour hand and never counter-clockwise) turn the minute hand clockwise until it chimes at an hour mark.
Then remove the hands and and place them pointing to the correct time.
If you are uncomfortable with this I recommend taking it to a clock shop or jeweler that sells clocks. If it is inherited, it may need some maintainence (oiling and regulating) anyway.

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.

Problems with Howard Miller dual chime dual west and Beeth movement clock


If you manually set the time, the chimes will be off unless you wait for the chiming to finish before continuing to turn the hands.

Press the TEST button to get the correct number of chimes in synch with the actual time.
