I'm not positive about this, but I seem to recall that these type of clocks have two "silence levers" on the movement. These levers are located at the upper left and upper right corners of the movement as you face the movement from the back. The movement back panel has to be removed if it has one.
If the levers are pushed toward the chime rods, they will silence the hour or musical chime, depending on which one it is. I believe the silence levers are supposed to be moved away from the chime rods so the rods can retract and then strike the chime bars.

I have one too. Someone has probably chaged the clock by turning the hands - BAD IDEA! THe clock should only be advanced by turing the center stem that the hands are attached to. Turn the stem until you get a chime on the hour, say thrre o'clock. Now move only the hands to match the chimed time and it should correct the problem for all hour and half-hour chimes.

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.

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.
