Dakota clock works fine, chimes do not.

I have a Daniel Dakota quartz pendulum wall clock. It used to work just fine. But during Hurricane Sandy, which is were I live, the clock stopped while we were displaced. I reset the hands and afterwards saw a notation on the clock saying not to turn the clock hands backwards to set the time. Unfortunately I did that before I had read the warning. Now the chimes do not word at all but the clock keeps perfect time. It is battery operated with one battery keeping the time and two batteries for the chiming. I have changed the batteries a few times to no avail. I also tried to reset the time turning the hands clockwise completely the full twelve hours and again to no avail. The name on the back of the plastic clock timing unit says Takane. Is there a way to reset the mechanism to full factory function? Or should I just buy a new mechanism unit? Please help. Thank you.

How long has the clock been running for since it stopped? Sometimes it takes a few cycles before they sync back up... How long was it "stopped" for?

Thanks

SOURCE: Elgin Westminster Quartz Chime clock won't work

IF I GATHER CORRECTLY , YOUR CLOCK HAS TWO BATTERIES, ONE AT BASE AND ANOTHER ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT. THE ONE ON THE BACK OF THE UNIT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CLOCK'S FUNCTIONALITY AND I THINK THE BATTERY AT BASE IS FOR THE ROTATING BALLS ( PENDULUM ). SO OPEN UP THE BACK IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, AND REPLACE THE BATTERY. CAREFULLY THOUH AS THERE RE TWO SCREWS ON TOP AND A SNAP AT CENTER BOTTOM WHICH YOU COULD EASILY BREAK IF YOU DO NOT DO IT WITH CARE. OPEN UP THE SCREWS FIRST AND GENTLY USING A SCREW DRIVER PUSH BACK ON THE SNAP HOLE TO FORCE IT UPWARDS AND INWARDS. IF NONE OF THIS MAKES SENSE THEN WE ARE LOOKING AT TWO DIFFERENT CLOCKS.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

SOURCE: Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime

I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
*Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
*Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.

SOURCE: Second hand has stopped working.

Hello
Just setup the clock once again by replacing the battery and check. If this also does not help you, the the press fitting of the second is loose. you have to open it to make it pressed firm.


To set up your clock simply install one fresh AA, LR6 ALKALINE battery. Due to the nature of long wave radio signals it is normally not possible to receive a signal during the day so it is best to install the battery late in the evening. Select your time zone by pressing one of the four time zone buttons PT-Pacific Time, MT-Mountain Time, CT-Central Time, ET-Eastern Time. The time zone buttons may be pressed any time after installing the batteries. If multiple buttons are pressed the clock will set to the time zone selected last. If no time zone is selected the clock will default to Pacific Time. Another time zone can be selected during or after the clock has set itself. Your clock can only set itself to one of the four time zones stated above. For time zones outside of PT, MT, CT or ET you must manually set the time using the Manual Time set button on the back of the movement.
When the battery is installed the second hand will advance eight seconds (two seconds per step x four steps). The clock is now searching for a signal. For the initial setting it is recommended to stand the clock in an upright position near a window. Within five minutes the clock will either receive the WWVB signal and set itself to the exact time, or it will determine that the signal is not receivable at its current location and time of day. If a signal is not receivable it will fast-forward the hands to the 4, 8, or 12 o'clock position and search for WWVB each

hour until a signal is received. If the time is manually set the clock will continue to periodically search for a signal and automatically reset the hands when the signal is received.
Select a location to place your radio controlled clock where it will be at least six feet away from a TV, computer, air conditioner or other household electrical appliances. The optimal location is near a window. Windows facing Colorado providing the best signal. The WWVB time signal will easily penetrate Masonry and wood framed buildings. WWVB will penetrate almost every residential building and most steel buildings if they have adequate windows. It is not possible, however, for WWVB to penetrate most indoor shopping malls and rooms in the center of large office buildings that do not have windows. In buildings that WWVB cannot penetrate you may set the time using the manual time set button. When the clock is exposed to the WWVB signal it will automatically set the hands to the exact time.
OK.

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 :>)

    How to reset the clock?


    Hello Ruth Anderson,

    All mechanical... clocks (even quartz) should only ever be ADVANCED... In the springtime simply advance the clock and HOUR. In the FALL pull the plug, stop the pendulum...
    QUARTZ WATCHES... Pull the winder stem out FULLY
    (this removes battery...

    Wait an HOUR... Plug the clocks back in... restart the pendulum
    or push in the STEM on your QUARTZ WATCH...
    (this restores power (and keeps the CROWN from coming unscrewed from the "winder-stem")).

    Never turn the clocks backwards...
    Modern clocks probably don't ACTUALLT MATTER
    but antique clocks and timers can be UTTERLY RUINED
    (It's just a good rule... & water RESISTANT seals happy).

    Relative to the clock-face...
    "FALL BACK - SPRING FORWARD"
    SPRING = FORWARD ... advance the hands an hour.

    Technically "time change" only ever occurs between
    1am and 2am during each time zones respective hours...!!
    Even on QUART
    Hope this helps!

    MINUTE HAND NOR THE HOUR HAND NOT ADVANCING AS THEY SHOULD. CLOCK STUCK AT 8:45 FOR DAYS, PENDULUM MOVEMENT OK. WHAT IS THE SOLUTION TO GETTING THESE BACK TO WORK? THIS IS ON A STRAUSBOURG MANOR...


    without seeing the clock .....are you sure it isn't something as simple as the hands ( arms) detaching from the centre spindle which continues to turn but without the hands. Alternatively have the hands become stuck on something on the clock face or become intertwined themselves ? Very simplistic but all I have to offer...

    How do i reset the chimes for a Strausbourg Manor Quartz Movement wall clock? and what is the magnet for?


    Try removing the batteries. Set clock to 5:45. Reinsert the batteries, and set to 6:00. it may take an hour for the clock to sync., but it should do the trick. The only thing I can think of for the magnet would be that it may have fallen out of the pendulum swinger where your pendulum hangs. Hope this helps. Good Luck.
