I have a carriage clock which will repeat the hour when the plunger button is depressed on the top of the clock, but will not strike the hour or half hour?

Could be that someone tried to force the hands backwards and broke off the pins that engage the striking mechanism, or it could also just be designed to remain silent unless someone wants it to strike. Some pictures of what you've got would be helpful.
