Re: Mantel Clock With Westminster/Whittington Chime: How...
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.

Wind your clock once a week by inserting the winding key into each of the three keyholes on the front of the clock and winding until the key won't wind any more. Make sure to wind your Linden clock before attempting to set it.
Access the clock hands on your Linden clock by opening the glass door on the front or back of your clock, depending on the model. Use the winding key, if necessary, to unlock the clock's front or back door.
Set the time on your Linden clock by moving the clock hands to the appropriate time. The hands of your clock can be moved clockwise or counterclockwise.
Locate the chime-selector lever that extends from the opening next to the "3" position on the clock dial.
Move the chime-selector lever to "Whitt" for the Whittington chime, "St. Mich" for the St. Michael chime and "West" for the Westminster chime. Set the chime-selector lever to "Silent" if you don't want your Linden clock to chime at the top of every hour.
Is this a older type mantel clock or an electric. A older one has a small arm on the back of the wooden case just move it to it's opposite position and that should stop all chimes. A few times that small switch is on the inside but very rear. If it's electric it also should have a switch to turn off all chimes.
The Westminster/ Whittington clock means that it has 2 or 3 settings. 1. Silent 2. Westminster Based on the music My redeemer liveth by Handel 3. Whittington Set the clock onto the westminster setting, this is the easiest. At quarter past the hour it should sound 4 notes. The half past should be 8 notes. Quarter to the hour should be 12 notes and the hour should be 16 notes then the striking of the hour. For example on 8 'O clock you should hear 16 notes then the clock should chime 8 times. Sometimes if the hour is out just gently stop the pendulum, check what hour the clock is striking then without taking the hands off move only the hour hand to the hour. Do not do this with the minute hand. I hope this helps you! If you are not sure please email me [email protected] I fix these clocks.
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 found my own solution through trial and error. I set the dials to 12 00 and then move the dials to show just over 5 minuites to 12 ( 1155) the alarm melody start and chimes for a number ( in may case it was one.) then i moved the dial back to 1200 and then reset it again to 1155 or just over. Each time the alarm chimes an increasing number
I had the clock chime settings on the back of the clock to the middle setting (chimes on 24 hours)
I carried out this until the chime was right for the time i was working ( in my case it was 1730) so when it reached 5 chines I then set proper time and left it. The next chime was correct
