I over wound the chimes on my grandfather/grandmother clock.

Customer Question

I over wound the chimes on my grandfather/grandmother clock. Help!
JA: I throw away my watch whenever it stops moving. Some people love fixing timepieces. Differences like that make the world go round I guess - maybe that's clockwork too. Please tell me everything you can so the Clock Technician can help you best.
Customer: Grandfather clock. I wound chimes too tight. Now it won't chime the quarters and the hour.
JA: Is there anything else the Clock Technician should be aware of?
Customer: There are 3 weights, with the one keeping time in the middle.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer where you can place your fully refundable $5 deposit (plus $13 after the Clock Technician responds). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Clock Technician about your situation and connect you two.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I get this all the time in my shop. The easiest way to try first you can run the clock manually by moving the minute hand clockwise stopping to let the clock chime this will allow the LEFT & RIGHT weights to drop. Try this option out and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike
