crowbar040, you may have a problem with your mainspring click, which is supposed to keep the spring coiled as it winds. What might be happening is it is sticking and coming undone instead of winding. Or you could have a bad gear in your automatic.

By your description the spring is already wound up tight and what happens is that friction is keeping the clock from unwinding and starting of its own accord.
The solution is to manually use your hand to move the pendulum back and forth for a while. It may take a few minutes, but this will force the spring to gradually unwind and kickstarts the mechanism.
Eventually after a few minutes the friction will release, and the clock should begin to work on its own.
To test this after a few minutes - once you have the pendulum started, let it go and it should continue to tick of its own accord.
Thanks for using FixYa. Please do leave a vote for the solution.

These clock do need oiling every couple of years and should be cleaned at least every 10 years.
One of the winding holes is for the time, one is for the strike and the 3rd is for the chime. These do vary in location from clock to clock so I can't advise any further. It sounds like this clock has 2 differenct chimes depicted by the SIE & EIV7.
I think your best option is to take it to a clock shop and get it cleaned. They should then be able to give you more information on the chimes and its operation.
