Clock Repair Questions? Ask a Clock Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi Dave, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Yes the sprockets only move one way the center weight which runs the pendulum is the hardest to work on believe you me the quarters are tight I do this every day in my shop. The best way to get the chain up off the sprocket since it is all the way up into the works and hoping the hook that holds the weight on isn't caught up in the teeth of the sprocket. It will take 2 people to do this take a small piece of wire and bend a little J in the end of it I posted a picture below fish the wire down the side that the weight doesn't hang down from about 3 or 4 inches then hook the J into one of the links of the chain then lift the slack of the chain up into the movement pulling the chain up off the sprocket in the meantime the other person can be reaching up under the face of the clock trying to get the hook that holds the weight to come down once you have the chain loose feed the chain back down onto the sprocket making sure there are know twists or kinks in the chain once you have the chain back like it should rehang the weight and you should be good to go. Always remember to stop the weights about 6 to 8 inches from the top so they do not get stuck. Try this option out and let me know what happens and if you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself if you want I can find a authorized Howard Miller clock repair company in your area that makes house calls just let me know your zip code location and by what major cities and I'll find a few in your area. Thanks Mike
