Turn the minute hand until the 16 westminster chime operate and then the hour strikes. Remove the minute hand and simple put it back on at the 12 o-clock position. The chimes should now be in sync.

I had the same problem but the solution is unbelievably simple. Just set the hands to the time desired by turning the round button on the housing. Now you mmust tell the quartz timer/clock (plastic rectangular mechanism) the same time as you have set the hands. In this way when the hands hit the Quarter hours/half hours and the hours, the electonic chimes will chime the correct time.

Ultra simple. The two hour buttons and two minute buttons represent a 24 hour clock. Example, how to set the clock to 2:50 PM. Easy, change the 2 PM to its 24 hour counterpart, i.e. 14 hundred hours.

Move the hands to 2:55. Push the first button once for 1, push the second button 4 times, push the first M button 5 times, push the second M button 5 times. Move the set button back to run and there you have it. 1455 Hours. Not it should chime correctly. As a tip, use a brand new fresh battery to try this out.

Is there a way to turn the chime off?

It depends on what type of movement you have, not all clocks have the silent option. If it does it will have a silent or chime lever on the front of the dial or it will have a small hole marked silent or chime (on the dial again). If it has the hole you will need a small key to turn it.

I want to know how to set the time on a tall grandfather clock. It has a key but I do not know how to set it and I do not want to miss it up. On the front of the clock it says Tempus Fugit Barwick. I...

I have 2 GF clocks....
To set the time, first be sure the clock is wound (weights are in the up position). Next, be sure that the pendulum is operating.... The "click, click" sound should be spaced about evenly. If not, then change the height adjustment of the feet to make the clock level...then the click will even out. Next, using only your finger, gently move the minute hand in a CLOCKWISE direction until you have set the time. You MAY wish to allow the chimes to sound at each quarter or half hour mark as you rotate the minute hand - but it is not necessary. Just keep rotating the minute hand - and the sounders will catch up and chime correctly.
