Antique Clocks/Smith Sectric Mantle Clock


I have been given a Smith Sectric Mantel Clock which is in excellent condition. It keeps excellent time and chimes on the 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 hour. However on the hour it chimes too many times. eg if it's 9 o'clock it chimes 12 times. How do I adjust this?

If it is three hours out on every hour, just move the hour hand carefully to correct hour. The hour hand will probably be on a clutch and the clock will be count wheel strike. These clocks are later than we deal in but I am sure it will be same principal
