SOURCE: Chimes are nine minutes slow

Take the minute hand off and turn hand over. There is a brass bushing that attaches to the aluminum hand. Take a small screw driver and place in the square hole of the brass bushing. Turn either direction and test on the minute post of the clock. Keep adjusting until the clock chimes right on the 1/4 hour position. Make sure to put the hand back on the right 1/4 hour.

SOURCE: how to reset clock chimes

The hour hand is a friction fit, so you can probably just remove the clip or cotter holding the minute hand in place, pull off the hour hand and set it back to match the chimes. The minute hand is on a square shaft, so if you are off by a 1/2 or 1/4 hour, you can change its position also (but only in 15-minute increments).

Daniel Dakota Westminister Chime clock not keeping time. The pendulum moves but the hands do not. Any idea what is wrong? Thanks! Donna Hartman

Hello, Donna -

I found and looked through the owner's manual for the Daniel Dakota Westminster Chime clock:

If you have not already done so, you may wish to insert fresh AA alkaline batteries in the clock. (Page 4, Image 9 of the owner's manual in PDF format) Follow those directions.

Then, look on Page 5 [Image 7, PDF document] regarding setting the time.

Step #8 states:
Never turn clock hands counter clockwise as it will interrupt the chime sequence and damage the clock.

Did you or do you know if someone else reset the time on the clock by moving the clock hands counter clockwise? If so, that is the cause of your problem.

A local clock repair shop may be able to fix your clock, or tell you if it is worth repairing.

Howard Miller grandfather clock keeps good time but chimes are off and five hours late

If you need to ask how to fix it, it probably means you shouldn't be tinkering with it.

You have something that represents a fair chunk of money and it would be wise to consult an experienced horologist about your problem or perhaps consult the manufacturer.

The cure might be as simple as removing the hands and putting them back to coincide with the chimes but it is presumably a fault that developed over time. I doubt the hands moved their relative positions by themselves but rather something inside happened.

Owning a mechanical pendulum clock is a hobby that requires some basic knowledge about how it works and how to care for it. The hands should never be turned backwards, for instance. Changing the time for daylight saving means either stopping the pendulum for an hour or advancing it by an hour and pausing at each quarter to allow the chimes to sound fully. Any mistakes will mean winding on many hours or stopping the clock and waiting.

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 have a Dakota Daniels grandfather clock. The chimes work, the pendulum works, but the clock hands don't move.

Change the batteries. The weight makes the pendulum and chimes work, but the clock in this thing is battery operated :>)

    My clock chies 2 hours behind

    If the clock is a mechanical clock there are 2 ways it can be fixed. You need to take the hands off the clock and gently replace the hour hand to the hour it strikes/chimes replace the minute hand and then gently clockwise ONLY move the minute hand to each hour letting it strike/chime the hour it is on. If this does not work there is another way and you can email me Yvonne. for more information. Mechanical clocks only.

    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 a forestville wall clock with the pull down weights. when it chimes it is behind in time. example nine oclock chimes seven oclock, it is a made in germany clock but what year i do not know. there...

    Stop the pendulum of the clock exactly at any even hour. Lets say at 6.00. While clock is steady and not working, pull off the minute and hour hands off the pinion, but do not brake them. You have to pull without any twisting action. This will leave pinions exactly in place they were when you stopped the clock. When it is done - push the hour hand back onto the pinion and make sure it is pointing at 4 (not 6, as it was when you stopped the clock). When hour hand is back in place and pointing at 4, push back minute hand as it was when you pulled it off - pointing at 12. Make sure hands will not catch when passing each other (you can bend them slightly if needed). Now swing pendulum to start the clock and adjust time (clockwise only). Never adjust time when clock is chiming. Rate me, plz.

    Pendulum Clock Strikes Wrong Number of Times At the top of hour

    it almost sounds like the hour hand is pointing 180 degrees off, and if it was removed and flipped things would be good again. does it chime 2x when it's 8:00? and 3 when it's 9? that would confirm to me it needs to be pointed the other direction, then adjust the actual time.
