Your grandfather clock dial says it is one time but the grandfather clock chimes another hour? This is an easy adjustment for most grandfather clocks when the Grandfather clock chimes the wrong hour.
1) Wait for the next hour count on your grandfather clock.
2) Count the number of hours the grandfather clock chimes.
3) With your finger, move only the hour hand (the short one) to the number of the hour count. It doesn’t matter which way you move it.
4) Reset the time on the grandfather clock to the correct time.
If the hour hand feels frozen on the shaft, do not force it. Most hour hands on grandfather clocks are simply friction held. If the hour hand feels loose, try pushing it back from the center back onto the shaft and it should become tighter.
The usually happens when an hour hand is moved by mistake when re-setting the time on your grandfather clock. Sometimes if a grandfather clock is allowed to wind down so the weights are on the bottom and the grandfather clock pendulum stops, this can happen.
Should you have other problems with your grandfather clock and wish to replace it, consider a new grandfather clock from The Clock Depot, grandfather clocks. Grandfather clocks are heavily discounted and delivered anywhere within the cont. USA.
