SOURCE: Quartz president wall clock, I need to set the chime

I have a pendulum wall clock from the president collection. If yours is the same or similar, the following may help:
*Look at the back for a slide switch labled "start" at the top and "set" at the bottom and move it to "set"
*Look for for small push buttons. They represent the hours and minutes. Push each in turn, the number of pushes to represent the time, ie, for 09:45, ignore the first(0), push the second 9 times(9)-push the third 4 times(4)- push the 4th 5 times(5). When done, push the slide switch back to "start".
If yours is the same as mine - a wall hung pendulum clock with Westminster chimes, made around 1988. I would be happy to scan and send a copy of the instructions.

There is a small potentiometer that the volume know is on, probably replacing the pot will fix the problem. Radio Shack has these.

SOURCE: i have a quartz

These are general quartz wall clock instructions as I dont know enough about what type/style of clock you have.

  • Open the access door to the dial and hands of the clock if required. Some battery-operated clock movements are sealed inside the clock case with a back panel that is screwed in place. To gain access to the hand set knob, remove the back panel screws using the appropriate tipped screwdriver.
  • Turn the minute hand (or turn the hand set knob at the rear of the movement if access is available) carefully counterclockwise or clockwise until the correct time is reached. Keep in mind that using the hand set from the rear would require turning the knob in a clockwise direction in order for the hands to turn counterclockwise.
  • Move the hour hand carefully with your fingers near the center of the hand to the hour that the clock is striking if the striking chime is not counting the correct hour. The hour hand is a friction fit hand and will move without engaging the minute hand.
  • Replace the back panel and tighten the screws with the screwdriver if removal of the back panel was necessary to access the hand set knob.
  • Close the front access door if required.

    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.

    My clock chimes the correct amount of chimes on all hours except 7. At 7 it chimes 5 times


    In a quartz movement clock, with a problem like this, the chime box (or whole movement) will need to be replaced. Timesavers.con carries a large selection of chiming quarts movements.

    Because we put our Seiko Quartz Westminster Whittington in our bedroom when we recently moved, we would like to know how to remove the chimes.


    I have seen a similar type of clock whos' owner wanted to silence the alarm and I found that there was a small switch (unmarked) which turend off the striking feature.

    Perhaps yours is the same; look for a switch on the back or the bottom.
