Clock Repair Questions? Ask a Clock Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. To release the cable from the winding drum there should be a lever that when you push it it will release the the drum so you can pull down about 12 to 18 inches of cable to form the loop to rehang the pulleys for the weights. You need to have their clicks released. see attached photo of a cable drum out of the clock. between the back of the front brass plate of the mechanism and the front of the drum is a ratchet gear and a click lever that is held against the click gear by a steel spring finger. if you can locate the tail end of the click lever and stick a long thin wire or screwdriver in between them so you can push on the tail of the click you can (while holding securely to the crank key) wind up one click and then push and hold the click lever while unwinding the cable with the crank key. 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 an authorized Howard Miller 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
