Need setting instructions for clock movement

I have a type of a grandfather clock , I purchased from sam's club about 4 years ago. I have lost the setting instructions and now when it chimes it is messed up. It used to chime once an hour form 7 am till 10 pm. I remember somehow setting it to that , but now can't remember how. The only thing i have is the item # DA471C and it says the clock was made in china, but the clock movement says germany on it. I love this clock it is right in my entry way the first thing you see and i miss hearing it. I can see how and where to turn off the chiming ,because it was ringing during the night which we did'nt want

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.

My Howard Miller Grandfather floor clock 610-808 chimes constantly

Hello Shirley Haas,

Leave the weight fully extended (stop the clock)
and start checking your local area for clock-smith
that make house calls (run on hour strikes are much more common... but whatever you say... "CHIMES" the cause
is likely the same: Little or no maintenance).

These clocks need to be lubed and serviced and it is work
best left to the serious professionals.

You can probably get away with another 35 years...

Remember we have time on our side...

As for me...
I bought a junk clock to EXAMINE & fix (did)
I purchased synthetic clock oil (LIBERTY noted below)
and lubed ALL the obvious spots...
wiping excess away with Q-Tips.

Then I assaulted my own RIDGEWAY...
Got it running & regulated (was NOT my problem)...
My pendulum only needed to be centered correctly
(oh well).

I could NOT pull up YOUR 610-808 movement... but on the movements I have done you can see the hour strikes & the lever that triggers that motion (HOURS are each a spike on
the gear wheel... from one (^), 2 (^^) to 12 (^^^^^^^^^^^^)
progressively (pretty obvious if you are looking).

Go there... look... lube..!! Be gentle... VERY GENTLE...
or better ... call in a QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON.

Where can I get information and pendulum for Ridgeway spring driven clock serial number 374221?

You need to determine what type of movement it is first. Ridgeway used movements from Hermle and other manufacturers. Once you have identified the movement we can sort out the pendulum. The following article will show you how to determine the pendulum length: How To Determine Clocks Pendulum Length

I just purchased a Westwood Grandfathers clock and it is missing some parts. I don't know the name of the parts. I need a ilustration and parts manuel for the clock,which was made in Germany. I have some...

That first number sequence is the key: UW 03038 (I think you may have typed an extra digit...)

UW is the identifying mark for "Urgos" - a German manufacturer of high-quality clock movements,
or in layman's terms - the part that houses all the gearing, etc. between its brass plates.


The dial, hands, pendulum, weights, chime, etc. are each separate components that attach to
the "movement."

The Urgos indicia (UW) is followed by a five-digit "model number" for that specific movement.
You can use this information to track down various Urgos parts on the ClockWorks website.

Lastly - a good site for general information/research: Antique Grandfather Clock.

Good luck, and I hope this helps!

Sams club warranty problem

The bulbs aren't normally covered after the first year. Some extended warranty companies used to cover the bulbs after that, but now since the economy is bad... a lot of companies are trying to save money by not covering the lamps anymore. And the ones that did are handing the warranties over to other companies. You probably will just have to buy one yourself or you will just be chasing your tail.

Radio controlled clock not working

Pretty simple: Press reset. Clock should reset within 10 minutes.
Manually set by pressing Set and holding for 5 seconds. The hands will turn. Release when they get to the correct time.

Mine quit working after a year and seems to be dead. The movement won't do anything now with a new battery.

I purchased an old Hamilton mantel clock that did not run. I have cleaned and oiled it and now it works well except it losses five minutes per day. This has a German movement, spring escapement type,...

This clock has a floating balance escapement.

Hold the balance snuggly with 2 figures. Take a small screw driver and push one of the 4 legs above and attached to the disk to the "+" direction. Move it about 1/4 turn. Set the correct time and check again the next day. If the clock is still slow, move it again and set the hands. Do this until the clock is accurate.

Disclaimer: If this movement was made in the 1970 or early 1980's (The date is a 2 digit # above the movement model number). Those years the clock manufac. (Hermle) did not do well in quality materials. The may need an overhaul or movement replacement. I can provide more information if needed.
