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 have a mantel clock whose movement was made by the Cuckoo Clock Mfg. Co. circa 1960. The clock was made to chime the hour and to chime (same rods) once on the half hour. In the process of spot cleaning and oiling the clock, the clock no longer chimes on the half hour. When the minute hand reaches the half hour, you can see the movement begin to run the chime, but the movement stops before chiming.

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.

How do I synchronize the chimes on a George Woltz, Hagerstown clock -- circa 1810


Slide the top off (if it slides off) so that you can see the movement inside. The clocks striking mechanism is on your left side of the movement. There may be a steel lever that raises, and drops between each tooth on whats called a count wheel. The count wheel looks like the other gears only it has deep recessions spaced accordingly to represent each hour. If you raise, or trip the lever, it will advance to the next hour. Do this until you've corrected the strike to the desired hour. Hope this helps. This is just one of several different ways to sync your strike with the time. If I saw your movement, I could give a better answer. Good Luck

My clock chimes the correct amount of chimes on all hours except 7. At 7 it chimes 5 times


In a quartz movement clock, with a problem like this, the chime box (or whole movement) will need to be replaced. Timesavers.con carries a large selection of chiming quarts movements.

The chime of my Howard Miller mantle clock are not w/the actual hour set.How can I reset the chimes? Daylight Savings time has messed me up.


The next time it chimes 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 chimes signaling 15 minutes after. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 3 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set.

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.

Our wall clock was not wound a couple of months ago (it is a chime clock that chimes on the hour and half hour with weights) and when we rewound it, everything works fine except that the chime is out of...


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.

Hope this tip help you.

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.
