Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I get this a lot at my clock repair shop. First make sure the “Bob” ( the disk) is moving up and down with the movement of the nut. It is not unusual for the nut to move down, but the bob stuck above the nut. Good lubrication and making sure the top ridge of the nut is in the slot will correct this issue. If you have adjusted the pendulum all the way down and the clock still runs fast the problem probably lies in the time/train and will need to be adjusted by a technician. 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
