Your spring may have been overwound. There are several YouTube videos that show you how to release an over-tightened main spring.

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.

mcdevito75 here, There should be a F/S on the back of the clock, if so place it in the middle, if not, check out a small watcg repair shop in your area.

The clock must be perfectly level - check that with a spirit level. If you don't have one then a wire with a weight attached should do.
When you swing the pendulum for the first time try to swing it at it's normal movement angle, if it's too high or too low the mechanism will not be able to sync with the quartz and the clock will not work.

You can not unwind the clock yourself, because this requires proper clock makers tools and skills as well. Clock is stopping because it has not been serviced for a long time and the oil in clock has collected dust particles and getting sticky. This does not let the spring unwind freely and is a problem for all cogs and moving parts. Find your nearest clock repair shgop and ask for cleaning, oiling and adjusting. BE AWARE: If you are gonna try to unwind it yourself, you will damage the clock's movement, but most important - you can even brake or loose your fingers, as the clock spring is under unbelievable tension and once released, it uncoils lightning fast and is sharp as a razor.

The longer the pendulum the slower it will swing, so lowering it will slow the clock down.

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.

I have a Linden mantel clock with chimes and 3 winding squares. Which square is for which function? I cannot seem to find this info anywhere!

I believe the one on the right is for the chimes, the one in the center is for the time and the one on the left is for the gong (on the hour).

How do you control how fast or slow a grandfather clock runs ? Does lowering the pendelum disc make it faster or slower ? Thank you !!!

The longer the pendulum the slower it will swing, so lowering it will slow the clock down.

Chimes do not chime due to winding too tight. Can this be corrected?

You need to remove the movement and use a tool to manually unwind the chime spring. This can be dangerous and can break you wrist, so you might consider having a clock repairman perform this maneuver. Then wind the spring about 1/2 way. If the chimes still do not operate, I suggest a good clock repairman.
