If this is a mechanical clock, make sure the chime lever is set on. If quartz there is a reset button to forward the chime advance until it matches the hands.

SOURCE: the time and chimes are out of sync for our tempus

Turn the minute hand until the 16 westminster chime operate and then the hour strikes. Remove the minute hand and simple put it back on at the 12 o-clock position. The chimes should now be in sync.

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.

How to set a classic manor quartz west minister wall clock to chime at the correct time.


Hello Fern Hicks,

Short of ORDERING IN A NEW movement I
would rather try removing the hands... and placing them where they are chime appropriate...

I'm sure there are more convoluted ways of accomplishing the same thing... but I so old & clock oriented... I only turn clocks & timers in the FORWARD direction (very OLD school).

Remove the minutes hand (from where-ever it strikes)...
Move the hour hand (only if necessary & replace the minute hand as appropriate to the movement strike.

How do I stop the continuous hour chimes on a WESTMINSTER chime mantel clock ?


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.

My Gazo GF Clock won't chime on hour at all


When you are setting your clock, when you go pass the hour you have to let the clock chime completely, if you do not do this you can damage the time sequence..You have to reset the chime cable or belt...but anytime you set your clock when you get to hour let it chime completely before continuing on...Try also going around with hour hand onetime and let it chime, if it will chime at all, if not you can get a manual download online. Clocks like yours has websites and support who can help you...I think it just needs the chimes reset.

Chimes do not work


Check for loose wires between the clock Movement and the chime box. If those are good (and the batteries have good solid connection-not lose) you probably need to replace the chime control box or the whole movement.
Timesavers.com carries replacements.
Mechanical clocks, while more in cost, will live a much longer life with proper care than battery clocks. Plus, an actual chime (not noise through a speaker) is much more pleasing to the ears.

The chime of my Howard Miller mantle clock are not w/the actual hour set.How can I reset the chimes? Daylight Savings time has messed me up.


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.
