Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. The RIGHT side it runs the chimes. What you can try is to run the clock manually by moving the minute hand clockwise stopping to let the clock chime do this for a 24 to 48 hour session this will allow the RIGHT chain to drop you can also be pulling gently down on the RIGHT chain end that the weight hangs from do this until there is about 6 to 8 inches hanging down the side the weight hangs from then reattach the weight then it should be fine. If that option doesn't work you will have to bend a wire into a J as I have pictured to lift the chain up off the sprocket and feed the same amount as I mentioned in the first option just make sure there are know twists or kinks in the chain. Try these options out and
let me know what happens and if you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself if you want I can find a clock repair company in your area just let me know your zip code location and by what major cities and I'll find a few in your area. Thanks Mike
