Hi pbardua,
I suggest that you need to remove the the first Left weight and see if the clock will run normal again since you mentioned it was not connected before you took possession of it.
Remove the Left Weight and see first if thing will run fine on the clock, must be a reason why the first owner never connected the Left Weight.
Won't hurt to try.

How do I get the chimes to work on a howard miller grandfather clock they worked fine till I rewound the weights and stopped


There are a number of things that can cause this. The most obvious is to ensure the weights have been wound up (either by pulling the chain or using the key that comes with the clock). Next is to ensure the clock isn't on "silent" mode. Some clocks, especially the more expensive models, have a small pull rod just behind the clock face. You can usually find it by opening the front door, and looking just under the wood frame the surrounds the clock face. Pull or push to enable/disable silent mode. The next option is to look at the clock face/dial itself, check to ensure it's not on silent. Sometimes there is a lever on the right or left of the clock face. Next, some "triple chime" clocks have either a turn dial or lever on the left or right of the clock face. This lever usually has four options Westminster, St. Michael's, whittington and silent. Check to ensure it's not on silent. If it's on for example Westminister, try moving it to St. Michaels. If the clock then starts to chime, you know there is an issue with the movement that needs repaired. You can also open the clock, if you feel comfortable and check the lifting levers aren't stuck, I've found this a few times. Additionally, while it's a bit hard to explain, on some movements there is a long rod that pulls almost all of the rods back at the same to make the "bonging" sound when the hour chime arrives. This sometimes ends up misplaced on the wrong side of the chime hammers. As you can see there are a number of things that can cause a clock to stop chiming, but a little research on your model and some confidence and you can usually fix most problems fairly easily. The only exception is if the movement has been neglected over the years (failure to oil etc), in which case a rebuild may be required.?

We have a howard miller grandfathers clock we got at an auction the chimes are off it over chimes. I counted 16 chimes at 12:00 one time it chimed 51 times what can I do to remedy this problem.


STEP 3 HANGING WEIGHTS Most clocks use three weights. The bottom of each weight is labeled as to its proper hanging position as you view your clock from the front. The total weight of each weight is slightly different and each WEIGHT MUST BE INSTALLED IN ITS CORRECT LOCATION FOR THE CLOCK TO OPERATE PROPERLY. Check the weights to ensure that they are tightly assembled. Ensure that each chain is on the sprocket. Hang each weight on the solid hook at the end of the chain, never on the chain links.

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 :>)

    Chime weights not coming down?


    Check to make sure the guard is lowered, allowing the hammers to move. It is black and is used to secure the hammers when transporting the clock. Also some clocks had a silent function, this is normally on the front of the dial.

    Not sure if first attempt went through so i will try again. We were moving a sligh grandfather clock and the brass weights fell and the weights inside came out which weights go in which brass?


    with most old clocks the weights were a means of moving the gears in the clock instead of using a spring
    If I am right , to wind up the clock you pulled one lot of weights down and the weights then slowly changed positions from one up to one down
    normally the lh weight is the wind up weight and is slightly lighter the than the rh weight
    your problem will be determining the correct weight for the rh side as too heavy and the clock will gain time and too light will loose time

    Halo Grandfather Clock won't chime hour


    In my eyes there are two kinds, ones that are a real grandfather clock that runs on gravity using a series of weights and gears with different counterweights for chimes and running the clock itself, and there are the show pieces that look like a grandfather clock but run on newer tech and electronics. If a real one then would try first pulling the weights to the top. They are usually shaped into a pinecone or something. If weight is at bottom them have to pull corresponding chain with weight till the weight is at the top of case. As "time" goes by the weights lower. You should have different counterweights for the clock, chimes, dancing figures and whatever else it may have. All the weights move at different "speeds" so you have to keep an eye on them to make sure it keeps correct time. I would recommend consulting the manufacturer if possible. There are so many kinds out there is really hard to tell by such a short video.

    Firstly do you know what each of the weights are for?
    1. The heaviest weight will chime the melody.
    2. The middle weight will keep the clock ticking.
    3. The 3rd weight will strike the hours.
    The chains run on sprockets and these sprockets move one way only. If you pull the chain the side that winds up will be the side where the weight will hang. If you need more information you are welcome to email me at amazingforklifts@gmail.com. I do fix these clocks for a living.

    My grand fathers clock keeps time but will not chime ?


    Have you checked the travel path of the other two chains ? If not, be sure that they aren't hung up on something inside the clock. Also, do you have a switch that allows you to turn the chimes on/off? Lastly: are the three weights each on their proper chain? They each have different weights and are sometimes numbered on the bottoms. 12_10_2013_7_43_52_am.png

    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
