Hi Pam,
I have a Howard Miller Grandfather clock and the pendulum swings very slowly and from far left to far right travels only about three inches at best. It doesn't need to move any more than that to make the "Verge" move the "Escape Wheel" to rotate the gears to keep the hands moving at the correct tick. Howard Miller Grandfather Clock

If the clock has a real clockspring mechanism ( with dozens of visible gears), then the problem is likely it needs to be cleaned.and adjusted.

Keeps stopping


When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

How to operate howard miller clock 645-342


Make sure all winding springs are wound well- but not overly tightened and set pendulum in motion. The clock needs to level across the face and front to back to work correctly. Time can be adjusted by moving the hands of the clock via the minute hand- allow it to strike once at each strike interval to keep strikes synched to clock time, and fast or slow can be adjusted by either the adjustment onthe pundulum arm or on the mechanism where you see an arc with "F" and "S" on either end.

Depending on model, it will need winding at least as often as the name of the clock type- in other words, a seven day clock should only need to be wound every 7 days.

Changed battery and now pendulum wont swing. Clock doesn't operate at all. All was fine until I changed the battery.


Give the pendulum a shove and do it every time you pass the clock. I got mine going from swinging for just 20 seconds to working permanently, at least until the next battery change.

What ports wind what?


On mine, the center one (@the 6 position) is the one that keeps the pendulum swinging. It is the one that lengthens the most during the week and if I forget to wind it, that pendulum is all the way down when the clock stops.
