SOURCE: I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and its keeping time but the pendulum is barely moving. What vould be the problem?

If the clock has a real clockspring mechanism ( with dozens of visible gears), then the problem is likely it needs to be cleaned.and adjusted.

Hi Pam,
I have a Howard Miller Grandfather clock and the pendulum swings very slowly and from far left to far right travels only about three inches at best. It doesn't need to move any more than that to make the "Verge" move the "Escape Wheel" to rotate the gears to keep the hands moving at the correct tick.

Howard Miller grandfather clock keeps good time but chimes are off and five hours late


If you need to ask how to fix it, it probably means you shouldn't be tinkering with it.

You have something that represents a fair chunk of money and it would be wise to consult an experienced horologist about your problem or perhaps consult the manufacturer.

The cure might be as simple as removing the hands and putting them back to coincide with the chimes but it is presumably a fault that developed over time. I doubt the hands moved their relative positions by themselves but rather something inside happened.

Owning a mechanical pendulum clock is a hobby that requires some basic knowledge about how it works and how to care for it. The hands should never be turned backwards, for instance. Changing the time for daylight saving means either stopping the pendulum for an hour or advancing it by an hour and pausing at each quarter to allow the chimes to sound fully. Any mistakes will mean winding on many hours or stopping the clock and waiting.

How to set a classic manor quartz west minister wall clock to chime at the correct time.


Hello Fern Hicks,

Short of ORDERING IN A NEW movement I
would rather try removing the hands... and placing them where they are chime appropriate...

I'm sure there are more convoluted ways of accomplishing the same thing... but I so old & clock oriented... I only turn clocks & timers in the FORWARD direction (very OLD school).

Remove the minutes hand (from where-ever it strikes)...
Move the hour hand (only if necessary & replace the minute hand as appropriate to the movement strike.

I have an electronic Howard Miller wall clock that chimes but is two hours behind the time showing


Move the hour hand counterclockwise two hours back and then just move the minute hand clockwise until the correct time is set.

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.

How to operate howard miller clock 645-342


Make sure all winding springs are wound well- but not overly tightened and set pendulum in motion. The clock needs to level across the face and front to back to work correctly. Time can be adjusted by moving the hands of the clock via the minute hand- allow it to strike once at each strike interval to keep strikes synched to clock time, and fast or slow can be adjusted by either the adjustment onthe pundulum arm or on the mechanism where you see an arc with "F" and "S" on either end.

Depending on model, it will need winding at least as often as the name of the clock type- in other words, a seven day clock should only need to be wound every 7 days.

The clock time cannot be set on a ''A'' Regulator pendulum clock, the hands move of their own accord when the key is wound anticlockwise. The pendulum does not swing either

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.
