Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. On this model the hands are pressure fitted onto there shafts. I use a special tool at my shop to reset loose hands but if you want to try to reset the hands you have to use equal pressure on either side of each hand at there base on the shaft you would first do the hour hand then the minute hand. Gently push each of the hands back down onto there shafts I have had several of these clocks do the same thing. Try this option out and let me know what happens and if you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself let me know your zip code location and I can locate an authorized Howard Miller clock repair shop in your area.
