Press the CHIME SET button and count the number of times that the clock strikes after playing the Westminster melody.
NOTE: The clock has an automatic nighttime silencing feature which silences the chime and strike between 10:01 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. If the clock does not chime when you press the CHIME SET button it could be because the chime is set between those hours. Continue pressing the CHIME SET button until

- Each time the CHIME SET button is pressed the number of strikes increases by one. Continue pressing the CHIME SET button until the number of strikes matches the current hour. For example, if the current time is 8:22, press the CHIME SET button until the clock strikes 8 times.
2. After setting the chime, if you find that the clock does not chime during the day, but does chime at night, press the chime set button 12 times to adjust the chime settings from a. to p.m.
Turn the VOLUME CONTROL knob to adjust the volume of the chime.
Slide the CHIME ON/OFF SWITCH to the crossed out music note position to turn off the hourly chime and strike.
If the clock stops, begins to loose time or the chime becomes weak or erratic, it is usually the indication of
weak or exhausted batteries. Replace the batteries following the instructions above for STARTING.
Never leave exhausted batteries in the clock as they can leak and damage the clock.
NOTE: Any time the batteries are removed from the clock, the chime must be reset as described in the HOURLY STRIKE SETTING section.
