Have Clock Problems? Ask a Clock Expert and Get Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I'll give you all options to try. First the Left weight runs the strike & the Right weight runs the chimes, you can run the clock manually by moving the minute hand clockwise stopping to let the clock chime & strike this will allow the Left weight to lower but might take a little while. After you start and if you hear a click when it goes to strike the hour but doesn't strike it might be the trip lever cannot fall into a locked position because the lever is being lifted at one end while at the other end the lock is out of position to fall into the locking cam. The most frequent cause for this condition is a dislocated locking pin, either by being bent or the locking cam itself being out of position if the weights were up to high as well. To correct this problem it will be necessary to position the pin so that it can once more perform its function. I would suggest you have a qualified technician make needed adjustments. Next you can get a piece of ridged wire bend one end into a J this works great for me at my shop I'll post a photo below for reference so take the wire lower it down to grab the chain lift the chain up off the sprocket and lower the weight but have a second person just holding the weight. Try these options 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 find a clock repair shop by you. Thanks Mike
