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.

I have a Linden 7076 chime clock. On/off/auto, start/set, H 2 buttons, M 2 buttons, volume wheel, test button and a wheel to adjust hands. I have no manual. What do these do so I can operate it?


Step 1 Wind your clock once a week by inserting the winding key into each of the three keyholes on the front of the clock and winding until the key won't wind any more. Make sure to wind your Linden clock before attempting to set it.
Step 2 Access the clock hands on your Linden clock by opening the glass door on the front or back of your clock, depending on the model. Use the winding key, if necessary, to unlock the clock's front or back door.
Step 3 Set the time on your Linden clock by moving the clock hands to the appropriate time. The hands of your clock can be moved clockwise or counterclockwise.

Step 4 Locate the chime-selector lever that extends from the opening next to the "3" position on the clock dial.
Step 5 Move the chime-selector lever to "Whitt" for the Whittington chime, "St. Mich" for the St. Michael chime and "West" for the Westminster chime. Set the chime-selector lever to "Silent" if you don't want your Linden clock to chime at the top of every hour.

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.

How do I stop the continuous hour chimes on a WESTMINSTER chime mantel clock ?


Is this a older type mantel clock or an electric. A older one has a small arm on the back of the wooden case just move it to it's opposite position and that should stop all chimes. A few times that small switch is on the inside but very rear. If it's electric it also should have a switch to turn off all chimes.

It's a 3 key chime and strike clock that chimes every 15 min and strikes hours. for last one month it doesn't chime at 12, 3, 6, and 9 position and the hour strike is not synchronous with min hand


More than likely, there are springs that activate the levers for it to chime, or bong, they may have got jammed up, you can open it up, and see if you see anything like that, if not, you will have to take it to your local jewelry store, or watch/clock makers to have them take a look. You never indicated what type of clock (make or model) so I can\'t be certain. Maybe a ships clock? They may want to charge you for a overhaul of the movement, but you can tell them to just "make it work" if it was running fine before (keeping time well) then an overhaul probably isn\'t necessary. It sounds like something may have got jammed.
I hope this helps !

Need setting instructions for clock movement


Howard Miller offers this feature: This is how it works.

Automatic Night-Time Silencing Option
Grandfather Clocks will offer a night time shutoff option. There are 3 options on this lever.
1) "Night On" - This will keep the chime striking 24 hours
2) "Night Off" - This position will turn off the chiming between 10:15PM and 7:00AM
3) "Strike" - This position will allow the movement to strike the hour without the Westminster melody if the other Westminster melody lever is turned to Silent.

Hope this helps.

Elgin grandfather clock chimes not working


I'm not positive about this, but I seem to recall that these type of clocks have two "silence levers" on the movement. These levers are located at the upper left and upper right corners of the movement as you face the movement from the back. The movement back panel has to be removed if it has one.

If the levers are pushed toward the chime rods, they will silence the hour or musical chime, depending on which one it is. I believe the silence levers are supposed to be moved away from the chime rods so the rods can retract and then strike the chime bars.

Chimes are nine minutes slow


Take the minute hand off and turn hand over. There is a brass bushing that attaches to the aluminum hand. Take a small screw driver and place in the square hole of the brass bushing. Turn either direction and test on the minute post of the clock. Keep adjusting until the clock chimes right on the 1/4 hour position. Make sure to put the hand back on the right 1/4 hour.

Move the second button from the left to set, enter the time in 24 hour format via the HH and MM buttons, then move the button to start. The far left switch, on/auto.off is for the chime. Set to on for 24 hour alarms, set to auto for no chime from 11pm til 6am, set to off, to turn it off.
