Deactivate the hourly chimes in my TAKSUN TS-613A clock?

I wish my clock stopped making that high pitch sound each hour, I've tried different combinations of the three buttons but it still makes that sound. Can you please explain to me how to deactivate it?

    I was suggested to explain a bit more about the problem in order to get an answer. Each hour the clock makes a little beep. I wish to deactivate that but I don't know how. Can you please explain it to me?

I am happy to tell you that THERE IS ANSWER:
In normal time mode press S, hold it, then then press D to activate (or press D again to deactivate) the alarm. You will see the symbol of Bell (above the seconds) appear (when alarm is activated) and the bell symbol will disappear (when the alarm is deactivated). Now if you FIRST press and hold D and then press S it will do the same thing (activate or deactivate the alarm). So D then S, or S then D will do the same thing for activation or deactivation of the alarm. BUT, IF YOU HEAR A BEEP (chime) SOUND when you activate or deactivate the alarm, then you actually ALSO ACTIVATED THE HOURLY CHIME!
BUT if you DO NOT HEAR THE BEEP (chime) when you activate or deactivate the alarm, then the Hourly Chime is OFF!
So (in normal time mode) try it both ways: first holding D and then pressing S, or first holding S and then pressing D (one of these will activate or deactivate the alarm WITHOUT MAKING A BEEP (chime) sound - USE THAT SEQUENCE TO DEACTIVATE THE HOURLY CHIME.
I hope this is helpful!

    Hi,

    Although the hourly chime stopped for some days, now it returned (and whatever I did, did not stop it!). So I simply opened the 4 screws on the back, and disconnected one of the wires that leads to the little speaker on the back. Put back the screws, and it is quiet now! It is not an ideal solution (and not a good idea for anyone who use the clock also for alarms!). But if you are not using the clock for alarms, you can disconnect one of the wires which lead to the speaker in the back, and it will stop the annoying sharp hourly chime (and will extend the battery time, as it won't use power for the chime).

    This is a last resort!

    I hope it helps!

After spot cleaning mantle clock with German movement (circa 1960), the clock chimes properly on the hour but does not chime on the half hour.


I am hoping that you oiled it also? One trick I have found is to gently lift the hammers and release, sometimes the hammers will release and strike the chimes/gong. Do this 4-5 times and hopefully it will get it chiming for you again.

My Gazo GF Clock won't chime on hour at all


When you are setting your clock, when you go pass the hour you have to let the clock chime completely, if you do not do this you can damage the time sequence..You have to reset the chime cable or belt...but anytime you set your clock when you get to hour let it chime completely before continuing on...Try also going around with hour hand onetime and let it chime, if it will chime at all, if not you can get a manual download online. Clocks like yours has websites and support who can help you...I think it just needs the chimes reset.

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.

How do set the chimes after changing the batteries


Move the hand to set time, but make sure to stop on every hour and let the clock chime the hour completely before moving to the next hour. That will set the time and sync your time with your chimes.

How do i synchronize chimes with clock on westminister whittington clock .


The Westminster/ Whittington clock means that it has 2 or 3 settings.
1. Silent
2. Westminster Based on the music My redeemer liveth by Handel
3. Whittington
Set the clock onto the westminster setting, this is the easiest. At quarter past the hour it should sound 4 notes. The half past should be 8 notes. Quarter to the hour should be 12 notes and the hour should be 16 notes then the striking of the hour. For example on 8 'O clock you should hear 16 notes then the clock should chime 8 times. Sometimes if the hour is out just gently stop the pendulum, check what hour the clock is striking then without taking the hands off move only the hour hand to the hour. Do not do this with the minute hand.
I hope this helps you! If you are not sure please email me yvonne.finch@gmail.com I fix these clocks.
