Lindon wall clock strikes on hr. before the correct hr. It has the cuckoo parts

Hi Stan,
This is a common incident that should be easy to correct. Let's try the easy fix first. You should be able to move the hour hand without moving the minute hand. Gently push the hour hand from its current position ahead one hour. Now the hands should coincide with the strike count but the time on the clock is off my one hour from current time. Advance the minute hand to the next 1/2 hour and let it strike. Keep advancing the minute hand stopping on every 1/2 hour for the clock to complete its strike until you reach the current time.
Let me know if this does not solve your problem.
