Suddenly, my waltham 31 day clock doesnt chime or keep time. How do i fix it?

Your clock probably needs to be cleaned and lubricated. Most any clocksmith can easily do this. Depending on the complexity and gum and dirt, disassembly may be necessary.

I have an estate mantel clock that has started to chime on the 1/2 hr as opposed to the hour. it is chiming the correct time.

It could take an horologist a while to sort out why it suddenly changed. It isn't unusual for a chiming clock to chime at the quarters and half-hour as well as chiming and striking the hour. A quality clock usually allows the manner of chiming/striking to be selected and sometimes even the volume can be altered.

If your clock used to chime and strike the hour and now doesn't and appears to have slipped by exactly 30 minutes clearly something is happening. In the old days such things were often the result of turning the hands backwards to reset the time - that type of clock should be reset only by turning the hands forward and pausing at each quarter, half and hour to allow the chiming of each to complete. Most folk simply stop their clocks and wait for time to catch up...

It is also reckoned such a clock should not be kept next to an exterior wall but rather in a place where the temperature and humidity is the most stable.

I have a Waltham Regulator Wall clock. It chimes 4 minutes late on the hour and 1/2 hour. How do I adjust it to chime on the hour and 1/2 hour? I've tried moving the minute hand with no luck.

Try this,remove batteries,set clock to 6 o'clock,reinstall batteries,then clock should chime,turn adjuster till you are at the right time,make sure your on am or pm,it doesn't chime at 10 pm- 5 am,so that will tell you if your at am or pm.When adjusting it will chime everytime you go past the hour.You can never go backwards,if you do then you will need to remove batteries and start over,use your phone's time to set.

Is there a way to turn the chime off?

It depends on what type of movement you have, not all clocks have the silent option. If it does it will have a silent or chime lever on the front of the dial or it will have a small hole marked silent or chime (on the dial again). If it has the hole you will need a small key to turn it.

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.
