SOURCE: What ports wind what?

On mine, the center one (@the 6 position) is the one that keeps the pendulum swinging. It is the one that lengthens the most during the week and if I forget to wind it, that pendulum is all the way down when the clock stops.

SOURCE: I need a Howard Miller battery mantle clock

Try www.klockit.com. You can replace the entire movement for about $5 including new hands. You can select from an assortment of hands that will probably match the style of what you have and use those if the old hands don't fit the new movement. I've bought several movements from them over the years. For a few more dollars you can upgrade to an "atomic clock" movement which synchronizes with the US time signal and even sets DST automatically.

SOURCE: How do you set the

Please be guided by this rule:
1. Use the minute hand only
2. Never move the hour hand by itself to set the clock
3.Never move the hand while the clock is chiming or striking.

These are the instructions. Please be guided too that It will take up to twelve hours before the chime sounds completely synchronize with the correct time.
1. Open the clock door to gain access to the clock hands.
2. Set the day/night lever all the way up --the strike position-- if applicable. Also, if your clock has automatic chime sequencing, turn it off. Setting the time with the lever set on "auto" may damage the chime mechanism.
3. Move the minute hand backward to the correct time. Do not move the hour hand--it will move as you adjust the minute hand. Moving the hand backward removes the need to wait for the chimes to sound when you pass each quarter hour. The chimes automatically synchronize with the time. It can take up to 12 hours for the chimes to sound properly and in sync with the time


I hope these will help you in your setup while patiently waits until the chime sync with your time.
Thank you for using Fixya.

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.

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.

Edward Meyer 31 Day Grandfather Clock manual


I recently bought an Edward Meyer clock from Grandfather clocks for less. The clock is beautiful, but it never chimed. I even took it apart and repaired the chimes, the hammers were too far away from the chiming rods, but now that it does chime, it sounds like someone banging pots and pans together, it's horrible. I've been looking online to find replacement chime and hammer parts so I can fix it myself.

How to syncronize time with clock chimes? Howard Miller banjo clock.


The hands on your clock are probably friction fit, meaning that they can be adjusted, possibly even without tools. The hour hand is usually a firm slip fit over a tube, meaning that it can be slid forward and backward an hour or more as long as you hold the minute hand steady to keep the hour shaft from turning.
The minute hand may be trickier to adjust. Sometimes, it, too, is a simple friction fit, and you can pop off the hand (remove the second hand and pull the minute hand straight up off its shaft) before setting it where it should go. Other times, however, the minute hand is on a keyed shaft and has to go on in one of two directions. It's still possible that someone could have assembled your clock incorrectly, however, making the minute hand 30 minutes out of sync with your chimes.
If neither of these ideas helps you, please describe better exactly how the time isn't matching up with the chimes. That will help us better understand the underlying issue.

Have a Galleria Grandfather clock thats chimes are off. How do I get them correct? Bought it at an auction and did not get any information with it. It chimed correctly in the beginning.


I suspect that the mechanism needs cleaning.

Take a look inside and if there is the slightest sign of dirt (particularly on the striking mechanism) then it should behave properly after cleaning.

Timex westminster anniversary chime clock doesn't chime correct number


Take the batteries out from the base, where the chime mechanism is. Wait till it gets close (20 seconds till) to a specific hour time, like 8:00 or 9:00, replace the batteries for the chime mechanism. And then count the chimes at the hour. If they are correct, you are set. If they are incorrect, turn the time back 15 minutes before the hour and bring it right back and monitor the chimes again. Hopefully this should fix it. Please post the results.
