A few days ago the minute hand came off my HM Regulator keywind clock. I put the hand back on and the clock is keeping time, but the chime is not in sync with the time; re: it strikes the hour on the half hour or three quarter hour on the quarter hour. Is there some kind of adjustment I can make?

Yes the positon of minute hand not sync with chime strikes. you fix the minute hand as 15.minute slower and adjust the current time using time adjuster switch not with minute hand ok. try it and solve it

I inherited a Seiko Westminster chime clock. The time is perfect but the hourly chimes are 3 hours behind. How can I synchronize the two?


The next time it gongs 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 strikes once. Now put the minute hand back on pointing to 6 o'clock and replace your dial nut and you are all set. Fix Clock That Gongs Wrong

Radio controlled Barolo Clock with hands keeps resetting an hour behind.


I posted this response to s-one else's similar question ; the details sound slightly different, but you may find this close enough to be of some use. (btw, I had stumbled along just about the same as you have described, for some time, previously.) I hope this helps. ... I'm not familliar with your particular clock, but, I'm assuming you may have a; BATTery operated, wall-hanging, 'self-syncronizing' clock with 'hands' on it. These are often marketed as 'Atomic' Clocks that 'keep perfect time - all the time'. Generally these work by 'accuratizing' the Minute-hand as it approaches the 'top-of-the-hour' position (e.g. the 60th. or the zero- minute marker at '12'. They often achieve this by either 'double-Clocking' or 'half-clocking' (doublespeed or halfspeeding) the electric pulse that makes the 'SECONDs' hand advance to it's next mark. These 'SynCHRONO-ize' to a low-frequency Amplitude-Modulated (AM) radio-wave signal, (perhaps near 430Khz?) emminating from a source near "The Atomic Clock" out in Colorado (I believe). One that I used to have hanging had recommended something like the following: -manually adjust the time (via the small grey wheel near the BATTery, but set it about 7 to 12 minutes 'early' or before the actual correct time, (preferably at about 10 min. before an Hour). -then remove the one " double A" . . . ... battery (for about 30sec.) and reinstall battery. -then hang it up, and watch for the second-hand to do its 'Double-clocking' (for part of it's revolutions ) as the Minute-hand apprpaches th '12'. {note; it may take ~2 or 3 hour-cycles for the minute-hand 'to catch-up on all it's "Lost" minutes}. (then, hopefully, your model will stay 'synchonized' there, for that 'Hour's' setting, and accept It (DST Hour value) with accuratizing Minutes. (and not go crazey over the next few days trying to get back to "Real TIME"). /mm (then, hopefully, your model will stay 'synchonized' there, for that 'Hour's' setting, and accept It (DST Hour value) with accuratizing Minutes.

After spot cleaning mantle clock with German movement (circa 1960), the clock chimes properly on the hour but does not chime on the half hour.


I am hoping that you oiled it also? One trick I have found is to gently lift the hammers and release, sometimes the hammers will release and strike the chimes/gong. Do this 4-5 times and hopefully it will get it chiming for you again. UsedClockParts.com

My cuckoo clock chimes hour chime on hour and half hour. For instance, if it chime 4 times at 4 o'clock,, it will chime 5 times at 4:30. Any help appreciated


It probably just needs cleaned and adjusted. You can look up clock repair shops on the internet or in your phone book. Since the clock is smaller, it can be taken to the shop cheaper than having someone come to your home.
