Floor Clocks - Instruction Manual: Quartz Chime Movement

CLOCK SET UP INSTRUCTIONS

 

  • 1 ) Clock ADJUST LEVELERS FOR MAXIMUM STABILITY AND PROPER ALIGNMENTMove the clock close to its final location. Make sure the clock is positioned firmly on the floor. Levelers are provided on the bottom of the cabinet. (See figure 1). WARNING: ENSURE CLOCK IS POSITIONED SQUARE AND FIRM ON THE FLOOR SO THAT IT WILL NOT FALL OVER. ADJUST LEVELERS FOR MAXIMUM STABILITY AND PROPER ALIGNMENT.
  • 2 ) Access to the clock’s quartz movement, is made in two possible ways; through the front door(s), or through the upper back access panel. If access is not possible through the front door(s), then you will need to remove the upper back access panel. This panel was secured for shipment with retainer clips. (See Figure 2 & Figure 3) Turn the retainer clips to allow the back access panel to slide out of the grooves. Replace this panel after set up is complete, and turn the retainer clips to hold it in position.
  • 3 ) Some clocks have decorative chains and weight shells.The chains are used to support the decorative weight shells, and have been secured for shipment in a bag and are located directly under the quartz movement. As you remove the chains from the bag, please notice each chain has a hook at the end. These hooks are used to hang the decorative weight shells. (See figure 4).

WARNING: KEEP PLASTIC BAGS AND SMALL PARTS AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

1. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Release the Pendulum Guide (for pendulum movements only) from the 

Transport-Locking Pins by gently twisting and pulling the Pendulum Guide away from the Transport-Locking Pins. (See Figure 7) This allows 

the guide to hang freely.

Hang the pendulum on the Pendulum Guide. (Figure 5 & Figure 7)

Install two "C" size alkaline batteries according to the +/- symbols in the battery holders. (Figure 6)

NOTE: Eveready batteries under the brand name Energizer have a non-conductive ring on the negative contact which may
prevent the battery from making a proper electical connection. Most other alkaline batteries will function properly.

 

 

 

2. SETTING THE TIME

clock hooks are used to hang the decorative weight shells figure4

Adjust the time by using the minute hand or the Time Setting knob. (Figure 6) Never turn the hour hand to set the time; it will 

turn automatically with the minute hand. Turn the Time Setting knob or move the minute hand (AFTER the batteries have been installed) so that the hands rotate clockwise. When setting the time, the clock will not chime at the ¼, ½, or ¾ hour 

positions.

When manually setting the time, the clock may chime a few minutes before or after the hour - this will automatically be corrected during the first hour of normal operation. The clock may a

lso chime out of sequence during the first hour of operation. After setting to the correct time, it is important that the clock movement be allowed to operate for at least one hour for the chime sequence to become fully functional. The quartz movement is highly accurate and has been adjusted at the factory for precise time keeping.

 

3. CHIME MELODY

Hang the clock pendulum on the Pendulum Guide Figure5

Use the switch with the symbols OFF, WEST, and MELODY2 to select the chime melody according to the following settings:

OFF = Silent
WEST = Westminster melody and full hour strike
MELODY2 = Ave Maria melody and full hour strike (Beethoven’s Ode to Joy on select models)

 

 

 

4. VOLUME CONTROL

The volume of the chime can be modified by turning the Volume Control knob.

5. AUTOMATIC NIGHTTIME CHIME SHUT-OFF

The movement has automatic nighttime volume shut-off or volume reduction options for a period of eight (8) hours after the switch is moved to the shut-off or volume reductions positions. This feature will automatically repeat at the same time every 24 hours. Use the switch with the chime symbols to select chime 

settings:

  • Chime silent for eight (8) hours= Chime silent for eight (8) hours
  • for eight (8) hours=  for eight (8) hours
  • Full chime= Full chime volume

6. OTHER FEATURES

This movement features a 4/4 chime melody. The movement plays ¼ of the melody at quarter past the hour, ½ the melody at half past the hour, ¾ of the melody at three-quarters past the hour, and the full melody on the hour. Following the melody on the hour is the count hour strike. Slide the 4/4 Chime Selection switch to the 1/ position to only play the full melody and hour strike.

Slide the 4/4 Chime Selection switch to the 4/Reduced volume position to play the melody at every quarter hour as previously described.

7. BATTERY REPLACEMENT

If the clock begins to loose time, chime weakens, or pendulum stops to swing, this is the sign of weak or exhausted batteries. Replace the batteries with 2 fresh "C" size alkaline batteries.
