I have a beloved Tempus Fugit grandfather clock that works perfectly fine once properly set, but stops after approximately seven hours of being silenced, via original silence lever, at night. I haven’t been able to find anyone else with this particular problem. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Tempus Fugit is Latin for Time Flies and is not necessarily a trade mark or maker's mark.
Tempus Fugit is found on many clock dials.
Your analysis of the problem is very vague other than the clock stops.
Interrupting the chime/strike sequence is unlikely the cause of your problem but may be a coincidence.
In order to properly diagnose the real problem, it will be necessary to know who made the movement.
Most clock manufacturers built cases and used movements from outside suppliers.
Detailed pictures of the movement, front/rear and sides will help.
Best of luck,
Dick
