Antique Clocks/Diplomat Grandfather Clock
I inherited this clock from my mother and have enjoyed the look and sounds it brings to my home. Unfortunately, several days ago the hour chime started sounding on the 3/4 hour mark and am not sure of how to reset it. Please help.
Let's try the easy solution first. If you move the minute hand slowly backwards from the 9 to the 6 and then back to the 9 it will chime. Do this three times and it should be back in sequence. You may have to go a little past the 6. You should hear a click. Then move it back to the 9. It should chime.
There is usually a reason that this happens. It is probably getting dirty and should be cleaned and oiled by a professional if it happens again. This is all assuming that your clock strikes on every 1/4 hour.
Try this and see if you solve your problem. If not get back to me and we can try something else.
