My Howard Miller battery operated mantel clock model 612-588, movement 354078F doesn't chime. My wife thinks she might have changed a setting or switch accidentally. How do I re-set it?

There is a switch from 'chimes off' and two variants. There is also a night clime cut off or volume reduction.

3
. CHIME MELODY
Use the switch with the symbols
OFF, WEST, and MELODY2
to select the chime melody according to the following settings:
O
FF = Silent
WEST = Westminster melody and full hour strike
MELODY2 = Ave Maria melody and full hour strike (Beethoven's Ode to Joy on select models)
4
. VOLUME CONTROL
The volume of the chime can be modified by turning the Volume Control knob.
5. AUTOMATIC NIGHTTIME CHIME SHUT-OFF
The movement has automatic nighttime volume shut-off or volume reduction options for a period of eight (8) hours after the switch is moved to the shut-off or volume reductions positions. This feature will automatically repeat at the same time every 24 hours. Use the switch with the symbols to select chime silencing according to the following settings:
=
Chime silent for eight (8) hours
=
Reduced volume for eight (8) hours
=
Full chime volume

Here is the manual

If you manually set the time, the chimes will be off unless you wait for the chiming to finish before continuing to turn the hands.

Press the TEST button to get the correct number of chimes in synch with the actual time.

Manually turn the minute hand forward until the 16 westminster chimes sound and then the hour strikes. Then remove the minute hand (it will go on in four positions) and put it back on at the 12 o'clock position. The chimes should now be back into sync.

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.

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.

Howard Miller Christopher Quartz mantel clock chime adjustment


Try pulling the batteries out, set the clock to 5:45 then put the batteries back in. Set the time to 6:00 and count how many times it strikes. If it strikes 6 then your good. If it strikes a different number say 5, take the batteries back out, and set the clock to 4:45 then put the batteries back it, set clock to 5 and count the strike. Most quartz clocks reset their chimes to 5:00 when new batteries are installed regardless of the time shown on the face. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

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.

I need a Howard Miller battery mantle clock


Try www.klockit.com. You can replace the entire movement for about $5 including new hands. You can select from an assortment of hands that will probably match the style of what you have and use those if the old hands don't fit the new movement. I've bought several movements from them over the years. For a few more dollars you can upgrade to an "atomic clock" movement which synchronizes with the US time signal and even sets DST automatically.
