I have a grandfather clock with a hermle 2071-850 / 94 movement, when i start the pendulum it swings but the clock doesnt tock, i leveled it but the only thing that i find that will move the second hand is pushing down on the middle weight, i know that they are all in the correct space because they have stickers on the bottom still, any suggestions?

Most grandfather/grandmother clocks have an adjustable screw on the weight to slightly extend it or shorten it to satisfy the equation of pendulum swing. the shorter the swing (arc distance) the faster the clock, the longer the swing the longer the time. Check to see if you can adjust the weight up or down on the hanger.

The clock must be levelled the same as when it was previously set up. In other words, if you didn't check the level of the clock before disassembly and reassembled it and re-levelled it, it may not operate because it might not be the same.
Some clocks have different weights for the clock, chime, and hour strike. Did you mark them and install them in the same location?
My Seth Thomas has a screw to adjust the swing of the pendulum to allow proper escapement on the gear, but you have to be able to determine which way the pendulum needs to swing more to make that adjustment. I may be able to help you with this!
You may need a clock repair service.
Let me know,
Gary

I have a Colonial Grandmother clock,it will run about 10 mins, it tick, tocks, hand moves as pendulum swings ,will chime, then stops running,


Could be it needs cleaning or servicing though perhaps it isn't sitting perfectly level

The "old wives" tale of clocks failing to run reliably against an outside wall aren't unfounded.

How to fix the pendulum on an elgin quartz anniversary clock


I am unsure wha you mean by "fix the pendulum". If you mean it stopped swinging, there are two reasons: first check the battery and contacts. Remember, even a new battery can be bad, which is why new things come with warranties. The other thing is quartz movements usually don't last too long. If the pendulum is not swinging, and is correctly attached to the movement and the battery is good, then the movement has gone bad and you need a new one. Most all clock shops keep quartz movements on hand. If you are a do-it-yourself type, you can get them off the Internet. Be sure to remove the old one first and check how thick the dial is, that's how they sell them by dial thickness.

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 :>)

    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.

    How to adjust a Hermle grandfather clock?


    you can try this although it may not work with your movement: set the clock at 9 and then move the hands forward past the 12 position. count the strikes. move the hands backward to the 9 position and then advance forward to the 12 position. count the strikes. did the strikes increase by one? if so, keep doing the same thing until your get 12 strikes when you are on the 12. then you can move forward and set the correct time and have the correct # of strikes.

    How do you control how fast or slow a grandfather clock runs ? Does lowering the pendelum disc make it faster or slower ? Thank you !!!


    The longer the pendulum the slower it will swing, so lowering it will slow the clock down.

    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

    Bakelite antique mantle clock just bought, but no instructions of how to get it going. Ive got the key and pendulum but dont know how to set it up. Can you help?


    First you have to wind up your clock using the key supplied. The pendulum suspension spring should start to swing quite fast. Stop it swinging with your fingers and hook up the pendulum. When done, push the pendulum to whatever side and release it to start the swing - the clock should start ticking in normal order. If there is no special bar on the back of clock movement for adjusting hands, then hands must be adjusted from the dial side by moving minute hand clockwise. Move the minute hand with your finger clockwise to the desired time, at the same time do not catch hour hand, as this may end up with the incorrect time displayed. Rate me, plz.
