Question
When I started my clock after being in storage for more than a year everything seems running fine but chimes are 3 off { only rings 7 x at 10 oclock and so on } Can you please explain how to correct this ...  Thank you  Jeff Johnson

Answer
Hi Jeff,

-Move the minute hand to the next hour (minute hand on 12).
-Count the amount of strikes.
-Without touching the minute hand, move the hour hand to the number to correspond with the amount of strikes.
-Set the time to the correct time of day.

The striking of the clock tells you where to put the hands.

Hope this helps,
Marilyn

This is for advice only. ~Most~ repairs need a professional. If I can help you with an adjustment that can set your clock back in order I will try. I can not write a chapter on clock repair. I will point you in the right direction and you will have to do your own research on how clocks work for more intense repairs. -No Watches -No Appraisals. Search ebay for past sales for that information.
