SOURCE: I inherited a grandfather clock which runs slow

You have to adjust the bob on pendulum. If the clock is slow, the bob on the rod must be pushed up. If the clock is fast, the bob must be pushed down. Do adjustments bit by bit, day by day till the clock is keeping time. If all this does not work, you may need to replace suspension spring (if there is any). If there are no suspension spring, the clock may need proffessional attention.

SOURCE: 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.

Howard miller grandfather clock gongs one beat short. ie 11 when it should be 12


Try removing the hour and minute hands from the clock and placing them back on at the time the grandfather clock gongs at that time. i,e., if the clocks gongs at 2:00pm replace the hands in the 2:00pm location and then manually rotate the hands around to set the correct time. From there on forward the clock should keep the correct and gong at the appropriate time.

Re: Galleria / Metro Grandfather Clocck. W/ pendulum on lower hanger clock runs slow. W/ pendulum on upper hanger clock runs fast. How can I adjust so it will keep correct time, or should I take it to a...


Most grandfather/grandmother clocks have an adjustable screw on the weight to slightly extend it or shorten it to satisfy the equation of pendulum swing. the shorter the swing (arc distance) the faster the clock, the longer the swing the longer the time. Check to see if you can adjust the weight up or down on the hanger.

Coaster model 900723 grandfather clock doesn't keep time


Everybody should know that the coaster clocks discussed here run on batteries. The timing mechanisms, the chimes as well as the pendulum all are powered by a battery. Changing the speed of the pendulum is impossible because there is no adjustment. Besides, it wouldn't matter anyway. The pendulum has now affect on the clock's ability to keep accurate time. It is purely aesthetic. This is a pretty cool looking clock and even has weights, but those are also purely aesthetic and do not move the way a classic grandfather clock weight would move. The moments with these clocks are not designed to be worked on. These clocks are relatively inexpensive (approximately $300) but do add a nice look to your home. Grandfather clocks snobs would say though; this is not a true timepiece. They're right... Sorry._1513.jpg
