SOURCE: Strausbourg Manor Wall Clock chime adjustment

It is normal for the average wall clock. Of course, this can be adjusted, but without watch/clockmaking knowledge it is impossible, because first you need to find out which part of the movement is causing early chiming - and there are plenty of them.
Super fine adjustment can be found only in top of the range clocks. Hundreds of hours of craftsmenship are spent to adjust and fine tune them. That's why they cost a fortune.
If you can not live with that early chiming, you have to bring your clock down to the watch/clock repair shop and ask for help. Be ready to pay quite a money, as this job takes the skill and a lot of time.

I have a Waltham Regulator Wall clock. It chimes 4 minutes late on the hour and 1/2 hour. How do I adjust it to chime on the hour and 1/2 hour? I've tried moving the minute hand with no luck.


Try this,remove batteries,set clock to 6 o'clock,reinstall batteries,then clock should chime,turn adjuster till you are at the right time,make sure your on am or pm,it doesn't chime at 10 pm- 5 am,so that will tell you if your at am or pm.When adjusting it will chime everytime you go past the hour.You can never go backwards,if you do then you will need to remove batteries and start over,use your phone's time to set.

After spot cleaning mantle clock with German movement (circa 1960), the clock chimes properly on the hour but does not chime on the half hour.


I am hoping that you oiled it also? One trick I have found is to gently lift the hammers and release, sometimes the hammers will release and strike the chimes/gong. Do this 4-5 times and hopefully it will get it chiming for you again.

The clock chimes right on the hour and used to chime once on the half. Now it chimes the number on the half instead of once.Need just chime once on the half


The next time it gongs multiple times turn the hour hand clockwise until it is pointing at the number of times it gonged. Next take off the dial nut off (make sure to put it in a plastic bag because they can be hard to replace) and turn the minute hand until it strikes once. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 6 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.

How do I synchronize a Grandfather Clock to chime correctly on the right hour?


Count the number of times the clock strikes, while leaving the minute hand pointing at the twelve, move the hour hand ( short hand) to the number it struck. ( this is the only time you should ever move the hour hand yourself). Tighten the hour hand by pressing the hour hand in towards the dial just a little. This can be done by placing a thumb nail on each side of the base of the hour hand at the center shaft. You do not want the hand to touch the dial. Now run your clock up to a quarter after, and let it chime. Now the half hour, the third quarter, and finally the hour. It should strike the correct hour if done correctly. Short version, move minute hand(long hand) to twelve so that it's pointing straight up. 2 move hour hand(short hand) back one hour. 3 tighten hour hand by pushing in toward dial. 4 check the function by advancing the clock one quarter hour at a time letting it chime in between quarters, then counting the strike on the hour. Hope this helps, and not confuses. Good Luck

My clock chimes out of secrence quarter past then hour chime is quarter to hour? how can i fix please


Sounds like the minute hand is a quarter hour off. Make the clock strike on an hour. Count the number of times it strikes, then remove the minute (long) hand, and the hour hand. Replace the hour (short) hand to the number that the clock struck, and tighten by pressing hour hand in toward the dial, then replace the minute hand in the position that it's pointing at the twelve. Now it should be showing the time that it struck. To make sure, advance the minute hand to the half hour, and let it strike the half. Advance it to the next hour, and it should strike the correct time that is showing on the clock. For example, if the clock strikes four, and is showing three, then move the hour hand to the four while the minute hand is pointed at the twelve, then press the hour hand on each side of the center shaft towards the dial to tighten it. Now advance to half hour, and let strike, then advance to the next hour. It should strike the correct hour. I hope this helps more than confuses. Good Luck

You were not very specific about you clock description, Many of the German clocks were using auto correct features.

You may not have this function.

Move the hour hand to the correct hour.
