My Howard Miller Grandfather floor clock 610-808 chimes constantly


Hello Shirley Haas,

Leave the weight fully extended (stop the clock)
and start checking your local area for clock-smith
that make house calls (run on hour strikes are much more common... but whatever you say... "CHIMES" the cause
is likely the same: Little or no maintenance).

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Howard-Miller-Grandfather-Clock-Movement-with-Dial-Model-610-309-serviced-/282379781809?hash=item41bf2586b1:g:UO4AAOSwMmBVjdo-

These clocks need to be lubed and serviced and it is work
best left to the serious professionals.

You can probably get away with another 35 years...

Remember we have time on our side...

As for me...
I bought a junk clock to EXAMINE & fix (did)
I purchased synthetic clock oil (LIBERTY noted below)
and lubed ALL the obvious spots...
wiping excess away with Q-Tips.

Then I assaulted my own RIDGEWAY...
Got it running & regulated (was NOT my problem)...
My pendulum only needed to be centered correctly
(oh well).

I could NOT pull up YOUR 610-808 movement... but on the movements I have done you can see the hour strikes & the lever that triggers that motion (HOURS are each a spike on
the gear wheel... from one (^), 2 (^^) to 12 (^^^^^^^^^^^^)
progressively (pretty obvious if you are looking).

Go there... look... lube..!! Be gentle... VERY GENTLE...
or better ... call in a QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON.

I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and the clock is keeping time but pendulum is barely moving. What's the problem?


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.

Where can I get information and pendulum for Ridgeway spring driven clock serial number 374221?


You need to determine what type of movement it is first. Ridgeway used movements from Hermle and other manufacturers. Once you have identified the movement we can sort out the pendulum. The following article will show you how to determine the pendulum length: How To Determine Clocks Pendulum Length

It wont chime on the hour


Basic assumption... The chimes know what time it is...!!

FORCE NOTHING...!!

From page 10 of owners manual below (MINUTES):

EXAMPLE: Clock chimes at 1:10 but should chime at 1:15.

Step 1: When clock chimes at 1:10 stop the pendulum and record the time of 1:10.

Step 2: Carefully remove the small nut....

(Hour procedure is on the SAME PAGE (10).

Ridgeway clock continues to chime continusoly


Time for a professional service. It sounds like a lever is stuck, or a pin could be broken or bent. A clock needs to be serviced at least once every 3 - 5 years depending on the clocks location, and surrounding situation. Like a car the clock has to stay lubed up or it will eat itself up. Search for clock repair in your local area. You may want to call more than one to compare prices for service calls.
If your clock isn't more than say five years old, don't let yourself get talked into replacing an expensive movement unless you can be showed why the movement needs to be replaced. If you were in the area I'd say bring it by the shop, and let me take a quick look. I don't charge to look. Good Luck

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
