Re: Singing bird clock

I don't know if this will work with your clock, but on a version of the singing bird clock sold 10+ years ago, the sequence could get out of sync (when the batteries were low or had been replaced. I would have to wait until the hour of came up for a bird I could easily identify - an owl at noon for instance - then push a button on the back of the clock to play all the songs until the "hoo hoo hoo" came up.

Re: Singing bird clock

HI there, you could try moving the hands to the hour of one of the birds that you know, then push the re-set button on the back until you get to this sound. Leave it for an hour to check that it is all working well, then change the time. Otherwise, take out the batteries, set time to 12.50, put batteries back in, then set time to correct time. Good luck.

My Audobon singing bird clock delivers the bird song if I push the button, but does not when it is hanging on the wall. It has a light sensor that "lets the birds sleep at night. I think the sensor is...

So, on a table it would work if you pushed the button. Hang it on the wall it wont. Are you covering a sensor? Maybe try putting it on the table and placing an object like a book behind it to simulate a wall. See if it still works when you push the button. If it doesn't work with this test you may be covering a sensor. If you have to re-route a light sensor it may be a weekend project.

Chime strike on middle of 1&2, 4&5, 7&8 and 10&11 instead of 3,6,9 and 12.

We understand your question:

The hand has a center bushing with the square hole in it.Remove the hand and use a pair of pliers on the bushing in the minute hand then re-clock or rotate the bushing back on the quarter hour then replaced it back on the clock.

Hope this tip provides some workable ideas for this repair.

Need setting instructions for clock movement

Howard Miller offers this feature: This is how it works.

Automatic Night-Time Silencing Option
Grandfather Clocks will offer a night time shutoff option. There are 3 options on this lever.
1) "Night On" - This will keep the chime striking 24 hours
2) "Night Off" - This position will turn off the chiming between 10:15PM and 7:00AM
3) "Strike" - This position will allow the movement to strike the hour without the Westminster melody if the other Westminster melody lever is turned to Silent.

Hope this helps.

Problems with Howard Miller dual chime dual west and Beeth movement clock

If you manually set the time, the chimes will be off unless you wait for the chiming to finish before continuing to turn the hands.

Press the TEST button to get the correct number of chimes in synch with the actual time.

My clock beeps every hour

If you hold down the Alarm/Select button then press the Mode button you will see that all the arrows pointing to the MTWTFSS will go away if you press the Mode button again. When the arrows turn off the hourly chime goes away.
