If only on the ¼ hour, but not on the others, there's a worn or chipped geartooth. If All of the chimes are 5 minutes off, you can usually adjust the position of the minute hand to correct it. You may have bent, or wore the 'd' shaped hole in the minute hand by aggressively turning it to set the time.

SOURCE: Strausbourg Manor Wall Clock chime adjustment

It is normal for the average wall clock. Of course, this can be adjusted, but without watch/clockmaking knowledge it is impossible, because first you need to find out which part of the movement is causing early chiming - and there are plenty of them.
Super fine adjustment can be found only in top of the range clocks. Hundreds of hours of craftsmenship are spent to adjust and fine tune them. That's why they cost a fortune.
If you can not live with that early chiming, you have to bring your clock down to the watch/clock repair shop and ask for help. Be ready to pay quite a money, as this job takes the skill and a lot of time.

Rate me, please.

How long has the clock been running for since it stopped? Sometimes it takes a few cycles before they sync back up... How long was it "stopped" for?

Thanks

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.

I have a Howard Miller model 610-363. It chimes between the quarter hour. About 9 minutes early.How do I fix that?


OK, google is your friend, but before I go there, recognize that pendulum clocks are generally regulated by the speed/period of the pendulum. A shorter pendulum has a shorter period/faster time and vice versa. So in general, look for the length adjustment of the pendulum weight.
Specifically, here is a link to a google-d search:

Gently move the hour hand to the 2 O'clock position, then using the minute hand cycle the time forward until it is at the correct time.

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.

How to reset clock chimes


The next time it gongs 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 strikes 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.

Chime strike on middle of 1&2, 4&5, 7&8 and 10&11 instead of 3,6,9 and 12.


We understand your question:

The hand has a center bushing with the square hole in it.Remove the hand and use a pair of pliers on the bushing in the minute hand then re-clock or rotate the bushing back on the quarter hour then replaced it back on the clock.

Hope this tip provides some workable ideas for this repair.
