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.

The hands on your clock are probably friction fit, meaning that they can be adjusted, possibly even without tools. The hour hand is usually a firm slip fit over a tube, meaning that it can be slid forward and backward an hour or more as long as you hold the minute hand steady to keep the hour shaft from turning.
The minute hand may be trickier to adjust. Sometimes, it, too, is a simple friction fit, and you can pop off the hand (remove the second hand and pull the minute hand straight up off its shaft) before setting it where it should go. Other times, however, the minute hand is on a keyed shaft and has to go on in one of two directions. It's still possible that someone could have assembled your clock incorrectly, however, making the minute hand 30 minutes out of sync with your chimes.
If neither of these ideas helps you, please describe better exactly how the time isn't matching up with the chimes. That will help us better understand the underlying issue.

I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and the clock is keeping time but pendulum is barely moving. What's the problem?


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.

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.

Just bought a Howard Miller 620-160 wall clock. The pendulum is not swinging! What is wrong?


First thing to check is for locks that are put in when shipping so that it wont be damaged. If it is battery powered, check the battery.

I lost the instructions of my Howard Miller World Time 645-600 Travel Alarm Clock and I don;t know how to set my GMT. its always stuck on london..


Go to their web site "www.howardmiller.com/" and at the bottom of the page there is a menu.

At the bottom of the second column, click on "product manuals" and choose the one that suits your clock.

What ports wind what?


On mine, the center one (@the 6 position) is the one that keeps the pendulum swinging. It is the one that lengthens the most during the week and if I forget to wind it, that pendulum is all the way down when the clock stops.
