Looking for instruction manual for striking clock with bell SS552. dual strike only strikes with 1 striker instead of both

Purchased at auction a model SS552 striking bell clock. It is in great shape and keeps wonderful time but only 1 of the 2 strikers works. It isn't loose and there does not appear any damage at all to any part of the clock. The clock does not have it's instruction manual and i'd like to track one down.

The print solenoid cap is probably broken. They are available but a little tricky to install. Wesell them for 20.00 W/instructions and shipping.

Westminster chime mantel clock chimes 13 at 12 o'clock but chimes correctly on all other hours

Just a question: you say 13, might it be an occasional double strike? The reason I ask is I have seen that (depending on the type of chime mechanism) that the striker is slightly out of align. Or that the chime rods are too close together. Double check to see if either the striker or the chimes have been bent or the striking felt is frayed. If you have to bend anything use two pliers rather than your fingers, small adjustments... go easy.

Tempus fugit German grandmother clock has a very dull sounding strike on the hour. Is this normal?

Bugs in the bells?? The hammers may also be out of alignment and are staying ON the bell rather that doing a "strike." If there are small screws on, at or near the hammers, or the mechanism that attaches to the hammers. make SMALL adjustments each hour or day, writing down what you did to each, until it works properly again.

Good Luck!

My clock chimes out of secrence quarter past then hour chime is quarter to hour? how can i fix please

Sounds like the minute hand is a quarter hour off. Make the clock strike on an hour. Count the number of times it strikes, then remove the minute (long) hand, and the hour hand. Replace the hour (short) hand to the number that the clock struck, and tighten by pressing hour hand in toward the dial, then replace the minute hand in the position that it's pointing at the twelve. Now it should be showing the time that it struck. To make sure, advance the minute hand to the half hour, and let it strike the half. Advance it to the next hour, and it should strike the correct time that is showing on the clock. For example, if the clock strikes four, and is showing three, then move the hour hand to the four while the minute hand is pointed at the twelve, then press the hour hand on each side of the center shaft towards the dial to tighten it. Now advance to half hour, and let strike, then advance to the next hour. It should strike the correct hour. I hope this helps more than confuses. Good Luck

How to adjust a Hermle grandfather clock?

you can try this although it may not work with your movement: set the clock at 9 and then move the hands forward past the 12 position. count the strikes. move the hands backward to the 9 position and then advance forward to the 12 position. count the strikes. did the strikes increase by one? if so, keep doing the same thing until your get 12 strikes when you are on the 12. then you can move forward and set the correct time and have the correct # of strikes.

I can't find a manual for my nintendo 64 game nuclear strike. where should i look to online?

The only place I have found where it is possible to download a number of N64 manuals is here:

Sadly, they do not have a file for Nuclear Strike. However, if you are willing to spend a little money on a copy, one can be purchased here for about $3:

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.

Pendulum Clock Strikes Wrong Number of Times At the top of hour

it almost sounds like the hour hand is pointing 180 degrees off, and if it was removed and flipped things would be good again. does it chime 2x when it's 8:00? and 3 when it's 9? that would confirm to me it needs to be pointed the other direction, then adjust the actual time.
