Can you tell me how to adjust the auromatic night shut off

Customer Question

Can you tell me how to adjust the auromatic night shut off feature. What i really need is how to do it after the clock has been repaired.
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: How to set up the automatice night shutoff feature?
JA: Is there anything else the clock technician should be aware of?

I know that. I want to know how to put the pieces on the fron plate that controls it. The clock was taken apart. Now how do the automatic shutoff pieces go back on?

Hi, Sorry I do not have a breakdown schematic to show you how to do this process. The little lever that goes through the slot on the face of the clock at the 3 position needs to be in place before the movement is reinstalled. Thanks Mike

Mike that is not what i'm asking. I'm not satisfied witht he answer.

Hi, The set up for this feature is for the chimes not to chime between the hours of 11:00 pm thru 7:00 am if I could see what the last person did to the movement and what you have now I could set it up but not being able to see exactly what you have it will be hard for me to tell you what to do. Thanks Mike
