How to set a classic manor quartz west minister wall clock to chime at the correct time.


Hello Fern Hicks,

Short of ORDERING IN A NEW movement I
would rather try removing the hands... and placing them where they are chime appropriate...

I'm sure there are more convoluted ways of accomplishing the same thing... but I so old & clock oriented... I only turn clocks & timers in the FORWARD direction (very OLD school).

Remove the minutes hand (from where-ever it strikes)...
Move the hour hand (only if necessary & replace the minute hand as appropriate to the movement strike.

I inherited a Seiko Westminster chime clock. The time is perfect but the hourly chimes are 3 hours behind. How can I synchronize the two?


The next time it gongs multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it strikes once. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 6 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.

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 out of secrence quarter past then hour chime is quarter to hour? how can i fix please


Sounds like the minute hand is a quarter hour off. Make the clock strike on an hour. Count the number of times it strikes, then remove the minute (long) hand, and the hour hand. Replace the hour (short) hand to the number that the clock struck, and tighten by pressing hour hand in toward the dial, then replace the minute hand in the position that it's pointing at the twelve. Now it should be showing the time that it struck. To make sure, advance the minute hand to the half hour, and let it strike the half. Advance it to the next hour, and it should strike the correct time that is showing on the clock. For example, if the clock strikes four, and is showing three, then move the hour hand to the four while the minute hand is pointed at the twelve, then press the hour hand on each side of the center shaft towards the dial to tighten it. Now advance to half hour, and let strike, then advance to the next hour. It should strike the correct hour. I hope this helps more than confuses. Good Luck

How do I set the Chimes on the Ergo Westminster Clock


The controls on the back of the Ergo brand Wall Chime Clock are different than that of the Seiko. I'm not sure who makes the movement - probably Chinese or Asian. Anyway, always take the pendulum off the hook before moving the clock about as it can damage the mechanism. On the back, there is a dial for adjusting the time setting of the clock hands, which is awkward to use, but does work, easiest to leave it alone and use the minute hand, NEVER the hour hand. There is a dial for volume. There is a switch for type of chime - Westminster or Wittington. There is the night-time shut off or volume reduction. Some models have a switch for chiming every quarter hour. My advice is make sure you have fresh batteries, and set the switches on the back for the settings you want. Hang the clock, grasp the pendulum arm and re-hang the pendulum, making sure it's hooked in properly. Now, whatever the hands say the time is, ignore it for now, and gently move the minute hand backwards, slowly, to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forwards to a couple of minutes past the top of the hour. This will cause the chimes to start. Let the melody play, then listen for how many "clangs" you get. That will tell you what the clock thinks the time is. For example, if it "dongs" 5 times, and you've set it to run silent at night, the clock thinks it's 5 p.m. If it's actually only 3:15 p.m., then gently run the minute hand backwards til the hands indicate about 10 minutes behind the correct time (it'll take you several minutes to complete the process) then gently move the minute hand back to about 5 minutes before the top of the hour, then forward to a few minutes past, and the chime will start to play the melody. If you let it, it will play out the full melody, then it will "clang" one more time than your previous test. Each time you move the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, it advances the chimes by one hour. Here's a tip - you don't have to let the melody and "clangs" play fully, each time, once you know how it works. If you have it set to run silent at night (pre-programmed to silence after 10 p.m. to 6 p.m.), keep moving the minute hand back to 5 minutes before the hour, keeping track of how many times you've done it until you reach 10 p.m., or not, until you get to the point where you move the minute hand back and there's silence. At that point, the auto-silence mechanism is active, and the clock thinks it 11 p.m. So, from that point, keep repeating the process of gently moving the minute hand back and forth, from about 5 minutes to the hour, to a few minutes past, keeping track of how many times you've done it. After 8 sequences, you hear it start to chime again, at 6 a.m. So, at that point, go through the back-up and advancing of the minute hand sequence 9 more times, and on the 9th time, let the melody play, and let in "clang" to determine that you're indeed at 3 p.m., which you should be. Then simply gently advance the minute hand to the correct time, 3:10, 3:12, whatever, and you're done. You'll know for certain soon enough.

I have an antique clock that requires two places to wind it up. Since Daylight Savings Time went into effect, the clock has gone crazy, chiming the hour on the half hour and chiming three hours ahead. What...


With only limited information provided about your type of actual antique clock this symptom has to conclude that your clock is a non self correcting style.

Step one: Ensure clock is striking the hour. during the time of the hour strike quickly move the minute hand to the hour.

Step two: Move to the half hour allow to strike, move hand to hour allow to strike then move the hour hand to align with the correct count.

Step three: Stop the clock until the correct time has been achieved and start clock OR strike ever hour and half hour until clock is set to the correct time.

Hope this tip guides you to a solution for your clock.

Tempus fugit westminster mantle battery operated clock has 2 buttons under an H and 2 buttons under an M. how do I set the chimes? Amy Howard


I had the same problem but the solution is unbelievably simple. Just set the hands to the time desired by turning the round button on the housing. Now you mmust tell the quartz timer/clock (plastic rectangular mechanism) the same time as you have set the hands. In this way when the hands hit the Quarter hours/half hours and the hours, the electonic chimes will chime the correct time.

Ultra simple. The two hour buttons and two minute buttons represent a 24 hour clock. Example, how to set the clock to 2:50 PM. Easy, change the 2 PM to its 24 hour counterpart, i.e. 14 hundred hours.

Move the hands to 2:55. Push the first button once for 1, push the second button 4 times, push the first M button 5 times, push the second M button 5 times. Move the set button back to run and there you have it. 1455 Hours. Not it should chime correctly. As a tip, use a brand new fresh battery to try this out.

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.
