Have you tried asking Howard Miller? I would go to the source - the factory knows the answer to this question.

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.

Here is a page that shows the table clocks. You might be able to find yours and then contact the manufacturer for the manual. Howard Miller Alarm Category

When was the last time it was serviced? The movement probably needs a good cleaning and/or oiling.

Howard Miller... | Answered on Oct 03, 2016

Clock oil, and a very small drop on each bushing, and pivot not on the gears in between the plates. Do not get oil on the hair spring if it has a balance wheel escapement. After oiling it's good to wiggle each gear back and forth to work the oil in. Good Luck in your adventure.

I took mine to a clock repair shop.
The face is glued down so you must use a thin blade to run under it. Later use small pins to re-attach it. I have no idea what the blade looked like, probably some round-end kitchen utensil.

Since it had sat unused for 20 years, I paid $75 for him to oil it.

I'll take it back in 4 years for another service.

The easiest way to set the moon dial is to find out when the last full moon was, then turn the moon dial by hand to where the moon is straight up under the 15, then move it clockwise on click per day since full moon. If the last full moon was last Fri., and today is the following Tues. then you would move it a click for sat., one for sun, one for mon. and one for Tues. If you try to turn the dial, and it resists, wait till a couple hours later. Hope this helps
