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.

I have a Regulator Waltham wall clock. When I wound the chimes, it just kept going until it wound down. How do I set it so it chimes on the hour.

Hate to say it, but it is time to get it to a clock repair shop. You could learn to do it yourself but that would take years and then you have the costs of the tools you would need, take it to a shop.

Is there a way to turn the chime off?

It depends on what type of movement you have, not all clocks have the silent option. If it does it will have a silent or chime lever on the front of the dial or it will have a small hole marked silent or chime (on the dial again). If it has the hole you will need a small key to turn it.

How to Set the time on a waltham 31 day wall clock?

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.

Edward Meyer 31 Day Grandfather Clock manual

I recently bought an Edward Meyer clock from Grandfather clocks for less. The clock is beautiful, but it never chimed. I even took it apart and repaired the chimes, the hammers were too far away from the chiming rods, but now that it does chime, it sounds like someone banging pots and pans together, it's horrible. I've been looking online to find replacement chime and hammer parts so I can fix it myself.

Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime

I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
*Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
*Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.
