It wont chime on the hour


Basic assumption... The chimes know what time it is...!!

FORCE NOTHING...!!

From page 10 of owners manual below (MINUTES):

EXAMPLE: Clock chimes at 1:10 but should chime at 1:15.

Step 1: When clock chimes at 1:10 stop the pendulum and record the time of 1:10.

Step 2: Carefully remove the small nut....

(Hour procedure is on the SAME PAGE (10).

I have a polaris 31 day grandfather clock that is chimming 1 hour and 15 minutes to soon. (Example: real time is 8:45 and it is chilling lime it is 10:00 o'clock. How do I fix this? Thank you.


Hi i owned a grand father clock and it had a reset button for the chimes BUT that was if it was an hour or two fast or slow It's only a guess because your clock is 1.15 slower than the chimes, You should be able to remove the hands off the face (note exactly where they were) and replace them 1.15 forward, NOTE you won't be able to push them 1.15 forward as the chimes will follow... I hope i haven't confused you... CHEERS..

My Gazo GF Clock won't chime on hour at all


When you are setting your clock, when you go pass the hour you have to let the clock chime completely, if you do not do this you can damage the time sequence..You have to reset the chime cable or belt...but anytime you set your clock when you get to hour let it chime completely before continuing on...Try also going around with hour hand onetime and let it chime, if it will chime at all, if not you can get a manual download online. Clocks like yours has websites and support who can help you...I think it just needs the chimes reset.

Halo Grandfather Clock won't chime hour


In my eyes there are two kinds, ones that are a real grandfather clock that runs on gravity using a series of weights and gears with different counterweights for chimes and running the clock itself, and there are the show pieces that look like a grandfather clock but run on newer tech and electronics. If a real one then would try first pulling the weights to the top. They are usually shaped into a pinecone or something. If weight is at bottom them have to pull corresponding chain with weight till the weight is at the top of case. As "time" goes by the weights lower. You should have different counterweights for the clock, chimes, dancing figures and whatever else it may have. All the weights move at different "speeds" so you have to keep an eye on them to make sure it keeps correct time. I would recommend consulting the manufacturer if possible. There are so many kinds out there is really hard to tell by such a short video.

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.

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.
