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
Tim

Where can I download an owners manual to a Howard Miller grandfather clock model 610985


Howard Miller Official Web Site

I went to the Howard Miller web site and could find the page for the 610-985 clock. However, I could not the specific owners manual for your clock. I suggest you click on the above link and call them. They can point you to the correct manual and, because they keep their manuals in PDF format, can probably email the manual to you.

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:

How to fix emperor grand mother clock chimes hour chime one half hour


Try to carefully remove the minute hand entirely from the clock then put it back in the "proper" place. for example, when it strikes at the six, remove the minute hand and put it back on pointing at the 12. Then re-set the time for half-past (or maybe quarter-till the hour by now! lol)

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.
