Hello,

I recently purchased a Franz Hermle mantel clock.
While the quarterly hour chimes are working, but the hourly chime 1,2,3 is not.
Is there a stop for the hourly chime, other than the on/off lever for the chimes?

Thanks for any suggestions

Welcome to the board.

Please could you post some clear photos of the clock and the movement and then I am sure many people will be happy to help.

If you are referring to a clock with the Hermle 340-020 movement, I recently bought a clock with that movement. The time function, the quarter hour and hourly chimes would not run. I guessed that it was dirty so I cleaned it with a method that did not require full disassembly and now it runs very well; ran for 9 days and 20 hours on one winding. If others don't have another reason for your clock not running right and if you want my simplified cleaning method I can post it in the clock repair forum.
