Quartz Clock Harmonic Movement Instructions

SETTING THE TIME

  1. Before inserting the batteries, adjust the time to 5:50 by using the Time Setting knob to rotate the hands CLOCKWISE.
  2. Install two “C” size alkaline batteries according to the +/- symbols in the battery holders.
  3. Set the time by using the Time Setting knob to rotate the hands CLOCKWISE. If setting the time for PM, make sure the hour hand passes through 12 o’clock noon

until the desired time is shown. While setting the time, it is normal to hear sounds from the movement or speaker. Continue advancing the time until the correct time is shown.

Once the time is set, the melody will adjust to the time selected, however, it is important that the harmonic clock movement is allowed to operate for at least one hour for the chime sequence to become fully functional. The clock may chime out of sequence during the first hour of operation. The quartz movement is highly accurate and has been adjusted at the factory for precise timekeeping.

 

SETTING THE MELODY

SELECT: Use the chime SELECT switch to select the chime melody according to the following settings:

4X4 WESTMINSTER = Westminster melody and Hour Strike on the hour. Additionally 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.

4X4 AVE MARIA = Ave Maria melody and Hour Strike on the hour. Additionally 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.

WESTMINSTER = Westminster melody and Hour Strike on the hour. No ¼, ½, ¾ melody during the hour.

BIM BAM = Bim Bam strike on the hour (i.e. at 1 o’clock, 1 strike of “bim-bam”, at 2 o’clock then 2 strikes of “bim-bam”, etc.) No melody.

VOLUME CONTROL

VOLUME: Turn the Volume Control Knob to adjust the volume.

SOUND: Use the SOUND switch to select the sound options according to the following settings:

PM11:00-AM5:45 NIGHT OFF = turns off the chime melody and strike from 11:00 PM to 5:45 AM (Automatic Nighttime volume shut-off)

24 Hr ON = the chime melody and strike are always ON

OFF = the chime melody and strike are always OFF

OTHER FEATURES

MONITOR: Press the MONITOR button to demonstrate the hourly chime melody.

SET: Advances the hour strike count without advancing the time shown on the clock. Hour strike may not match time shown on the clock after pressing the SET button. Avoid pressing the SET button after the batteries have been installed in the movement.

RESET: Resets the next hour strike count to 6:00 AM. If after at least one hour, the hour strike count does not match the time:

– set the time to 5:50 by using the Time Setting knob to rotate the hands CLOCKWISE

– press the RESET button

– set the time to the desired time by using the Time Setting knob to rotate

the hands CLOCKWISE (If setting PM time, make sure the hour hand

passes through 12 o’clock noon until the desired time is shown.)

PENDULUM SET-UP (for pendulum movements only)

  1. Release the Pendulum Guide from the Transport-Locking Pin by gently pushing it

sideways, allowing the pendulum guide to hang freely. Install the two “D” batteries.

  1. Hang the pendulum on the pendulum guide.
  2. Move the pendulum to the far left of center and release.
  3. Let the clock operate a few minutes until the pendulum settles into an even

swinging motion.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT

If the clock begins to lose time, chime weakens, or pendulum stops to swing, this is the sign of weak or exhausted batteries. Replace with new alkaline batteries.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME – How to change the time on your clock on DST:

SPRING – With the time setting post on the back of the clock, turn so the hands are moving clockwise one hour.

FALL –  Since the batteries should be changed once a year, this is a good time to do it. 

Change the batteries (or if you wish not to change the batteries) take out the batteries and adjust the time to 5:50 by using the Time Setting knob ALWAYS rotating the hands CLOCKWISE.

NOW…Reinstall or Install two “C” size alkaline batteries according to the +/- symbols in the battery holders.

Set the time by using the Time Setting knob to rotate the hands CLOCKWISE. If setting the time for PM, make sure the hour hand passes through 12 o’clock noon

until the desired time is shown. While setting the time, it is normal to hear sounds from the movement or speaker. Continue advancing the time until the correct time is shown.
