Most chiming clocks only chime on the hour from 6 am to 9 pm
if it is a digital clock with a chimer the set it to 12 hour and not 24 hour
make sure that the chime has a good battery in the chime circuit and it is set to chime on the correct hour
If the statement made to you was correct then it would be chiming at night instead of the day

DIGITAL WATCH USER INSTRUCTIONS May 27, 2006 - 05:59 PM On 5/26/2006 I bought from Walmart a $6.43 watch, on the back of which is written "AH 1175, 52, Battery CR2025, China Module, FMD, Base Metal Bezel, Stainless Steel Back, 100ft Water Resistant". It has no control buttons on top (where buttons may be accidentally pushed), the display is larger and more visible, and the color is dark, so I bought it even though I prefer models that have a fabric/velcro wrist-strap.
Four buttons on this watch are labelled: Light, Mode, Reset, and St/Sp. The instructions which I found inside its container refer to the Light button as A, the Mode button as B, the Reset button as C, and the Start/Stop button as D, but otherwise do not pertain to the watch, so I determined the button's functions by trial and error, as follows:
--
TO SELECT THE DISPLAY MODE
Push the Mode Button in order to select one of the following four display modes in the following order: Normal Time, Stop Watch, Alarm Reset, Time Reset.
In the Normal Time Mode, the Day of Week, the Hour, Minute and Second are displayed (none flash). If the Alarm and Hourly Chime icons are not displayed, the Alarm and Hourly Chime are turned off.
--
TO DISPLAY DAY OF WEEK, HOUR, MINUTE, SECOND AND WHETHER THE ALARM AND HOURLY CHIMES ARE ON:
Push the Mode button until no icon is flashing. The Alarm and Hourly Chimes are off if no Alarm or Chime icon is displayed beside the Second display.
--
TO DISPLAY THE DAY, MONTH AND DAY OF WEEK AND WHETHER THE ALARM AND HOURLY CHIMES ARE ON:
In Normal Time Mode, push the Start/Stop button. The Alarm and Hourly Chimes are off if no Alarm or Chime icon is displayed.
--
TO DISPLAY THE ALARM TIME
In Normal Time Mode, push the Reset button. The P or A beside the Alarm Time indicates PM or AM time. The P or A below the Alarm Time indicates a 12 hour clock; an H indicates a 24 hour clock.
--
TO STOP/START THE ALARM AND HOURLY CHIMES
In Normal Time Mode, hold the Start/Stop button down and push the Reset button (the Date and Day of Week will be displayed) to turn the preset Alarm and Hourly Chimes on, or off (to save the battery). To test the alarm, hold the Reset button down. The alarm and chimes are off when the alarm and chimes icons are not displayed.
--
TO STOP THE HOURLY CHIME
In Normal Time Mode, hold down the Reset button (the Alarm Time will be displayed) and push the Mode button until the Day of Week display is no longer highlighted; otherwise the hourly chime drains the battery.
--
TO SET THE TIME
To Fast/Forward until the correct number is displayed, hold the Start/Stop button down.
To set the Month of the Year, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Month of the Year number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Month of the Year is displayed and push the Reset Button.
To set the Day of Month, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Day of Month number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Day of Month is displayed and push the Reset Button.
To set the Day of Week, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Day of Week display flashes; push the Start/Stop button to until the correct Day of Week is displayed and push the Reset Button.
To set the Hour, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Hour number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Hour is displayed and push the Reset Button. For a 24 hour clock, push the reset button until an H is displayed. For a 12 hour clock, push the reset button until an A or P is displayed.
To set the Second, select the Time Reset Mode and push the Reset button until the Second number flashes. The Second number resets to Zero everytime the Start/Stop button is pushed. If the Start/Stop button is pushed as soon as the Second hand on your computer and watch are the same, the watch will be accurate to one second (to set your computer time to the second, log on to the Internet, right click on your PC's time display, select ADJUST DATE/TIME, INTERNET TIME, UPDATE NOW). The setting of the Second number will not be affected by setting the Minute number afterwards.
After the Second number is set, set the Minute number by selecting the Time Reset Mode and pushing the Reset button until the Minute number flashes; push the Start/Stop button until the correct Minute is displayed and push the Reset Button.
--
TO SET THE ALARM TIME AND TURN ON THE ALARM
Choose the Alarm Reset Mode. The alarm is turned on everytime the Alarm time is reset.
To select the Hour, push the Start/Stop button while the Hour is flashing and until the correct Hour is displayed, then push the Reset button (the Alarm and Hourly Chime icons will appear).
To select the Minute, push the Start/Stop button while the Minute is flashing and until the correct Minute is displayed, then push the Reset button.
Push the Mode button after the correct Alarm Time has been selected. The Alarm and Hourly Chime icons will be displayed beside the Second numbers.
The P icon indicates PM. The A icon indicates AM. The H icon indicates a 24 hour clock.
--
TO USE THE STOP WATCH
Choose the Stop Watch Mode. Push the Start/Stop button to begin the lap time. To pause the Stop Watch push the Start/Stop button to stop it and push it again to continue. To reset the Stop Watch to zero, stop the lap time by pushing the Start/Stop button, then push the Reset button (otherwise the Stop Watch will continue counting after other Modes are selected).

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.

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.

How do set the chimes after changing the batteries


Move the hand to set time, but make sure to stop on every hour and let the clock chime the hour completely before moving to the next hour. That will set the time and sync your time with your chimes.

My clock chies 2 hours behind


If the clock is a mechanical clock there are 2 ways it can be fixed. You need to take the hands off the clock and gently replace the hour hand to the hour it strikes/chimes replace the minute hand and then gently clockwise ONLY move the minute hand to each hour letting it strike/chime the hour it is on. If this does not work there is another way and you can email me Yvonne. [email protected] for more information. Mechanical clocks only.

Tempus fugit westminster mantle battery operated clock has 2 buttons under an H and 2 buttons under an M. how do I set the chimes? Amy Howard


I had the same problem but the solution is unbelievably simple. Just set the hands to the time desired by turning the round button on the housing. Now you mmust tell the quartz timer/clock (plastic rectangular mechanism) the same time as you have set the hands. In this way when the hands hit the Quarter hours/half hours and the hours, the electonic chimes will chime the correct time.

Ultra simple. The two hour buttons and two minute buttons represent a 24 hour clock. Example, how to set the clock to 2:50 PM. Easy, change the 2 PM to its 24 hour counterpart, i.e. 14 hundred hours.

Move the hands to 2:55. Push the first button once for 1, push the second button 4 times, push the first M button 5 times, push the second M button 5 times. Move the set button back to run and there you have it. 1455 Hours. Not it should chime correctly. As a tip, use a brand new fresh battery to try this out.

How to turn off hourly chime on digital watch


If your no-name/no instructions watch has the chime function, try this to turn it off/on:
In regular time mode, hold down the reset button, while you hit the mode button. You should see something on the face appear or disappear. This could be the chime on/off signal. You will have to wait for the regular time to hit the hour to see if this works.
If you do the same but hit the start/stop button instead, the alarm should turn on/off.
The mystery is that you have to go to this third level of button combinations. Who knew these generic watches were this deep.
