SOURCE: I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and its keeping time but the pendulum is barely moving. What vould be the problem?

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.

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 download an owners manual to a Howard Miller grandfather clock model 610985


Howard Miller Official Web Site

I went to the Howard Miller web site and could find the page for the 610-985 clock. However, I could not the specific owners manual for your clock. I suggest you click on the above link and call them. They can point you to the correct manual and, because they keep their manuals in PDF format, can probably email the manual to you.

Howard miller grandfather clock gongs one beat short. ie 11 when it should be 12


Try removing the hour and minute hands from the clock and placing them back on at the time the grandfather clock gongs at that time. i,e., if the clocks gongs at 2:00pm replace the hands in the 2:00pm location and then manually rotate the hands around to set the correct time. From there on forward the clock should keep the correct and gong at the appropriate time.

We recently moved from USA to UK, since the move our Howard Miller Grandfather clock Model No 611-070, Serial No MF0055050196 keeps good time, but unable to get chimes to work. ease.


We, in the UK, have some excellent clock smiths. It is probably just the mechanism needs adjusting. Have a look locally and on line for a clock smith or pop into a jeweller and ask for advice.
