Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. The Right is for the chimes first you can try to run the clock manually by moving the minute hand clockwise stopping to let the clock chime this should lower the RIGHT & LEFT weights keep doing this for a 24 hour period that should lower the weight enough to get the clock running on its own. Next if that does not work you will have to lift the chain up off the sprocket and feed about 12 inches down the side the weight is hanging down but make sure that you do not kink or have any twists in the chain. Try these options out and if you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself if you want I can find a 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
