Hermle 241–840 is running fast 76 Ticks per minute, how many ticks per minute is correct?

I recently purchased a Hermle UW66020 to replace the Urgos UW66009 on my Howard Miller GF clock. At first observation they look very similar, only the suspension post is elevated in the new movement. On trying to set it into the case
the chime strikers don’t line up with the chimes and the suspension post hits the chimes and box. The chime box is not mounted in the perfect center of the case. Does the new movement need to be reconfigured lowering the post or does the chime box need to be moved?

Purchased a Hermle 451-050H, 114cm followed the instructions provided in the email and on your help pages and it does not work. It sounded the hours once at 8 minutes past and never chimed or sounded the hours again. Checked everything I could find that was related and nothing helps. It does keep time though.

Hand Fix to Chime Spot

Make the minute hand point to the right spot, when the clock chimed. This is easy, just take off the minute hand and bring it to your garage. When your in your garage with the minute hand take some pliers and turn the bushing that is inside the hand itself. Walk back to the clock and put the minute hand on and see if its now pointing closer to the quarters when chimes.

Hi James,
No need for the zoom on the Seth Thomas clock. I have a local clock shop taking a look at it.
Thank you,
Steve

I recently purchased a clock movement from you and you had to change the pendulum to fit around the chimes.. as soon as i put it back in the clock it stops. Even without the pendulum attached it won’t run. Should I send it back to you for inspection? #274205

Hi,

No not yet we can help you with the set up. We can even do a zoom support live support if it comes down to it. Best to email this same question to us at clockworks.com by replying to your receipt, this way we can help you and know what was purchased and when and so forth.

my clock is not consistently striking the correct number of times on the hour. It is striking on the hour, each hour, but sometimes it strikes an additional strike and sometimes it is correct.

I have a Hermle 451053H 85cm movement in a Loben Grandfather clock. It was moved. When putting it back together, the pendulum doesn’t swing very long before it stops. I have pictures of the back of the movement. I think a part was lost. I can see the suspension spring but think the part from the suspension spring to the pendulum is missing.
