I have the above named Grand Father clock. The problem is the clock strikes 12 times, no matte what the hour is. It used to strike properly on every hour until this problem occurred about 10 days ago. What do I need to do?

Hi Bob,

It sounds like the rack is falling behind the snail.

Try pulling the hour hand ^gently^ towards you first.(not the minute hand)
Then push it back towards the dial. Do this when the clock
is not striking. If that doesn't work, try doing it
when the clock is striking.

If that isn't the problem then it may be a mechanical problem
that would need the dial taken off to diagnosis it.

Hope this helps,

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.
