When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

It wont chime on the hour

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


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..

How do I make my clock chime the correct number of times?

whenever the battery is weak the chime changes....whenever you change battery the clock chimes to the last time it chimed so...try setting your clock to next hour of chime n then move the hands of clock to next hour n your clock will chime accordingly.....
in this way waiting for chime to finish ...set to clock to present time ....waiting for it to chime every time the minute hand passes 12

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.

My grand fathers clock keeps time but will not chime ?

Have you checked the travel path of the other two chains ? If not, be sure that they aren't hung up on something inside the clock. Also, do you have a switch that allows you to turn the chimes on/off? Lastly: are the three weights each on their proper chain? They each have different weights and are sometimes numbered on the bottoms. 12_10_2013_7_43_52_am.png

How to co-ordinate chimes on SWeiko QF141S mantle clock

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.
