Grandfather Clock Owners Manual

Posted November 4, 2013

Behind the grandfather clock dial that shows time is the grandfather clock movement that keeps the hands telling time, as well as the grandfather clock chiming mechanism, and connected to that mechanism the weights and pendulum that drive the operation of the grandfather clock. When doing anything new with a grandfather clock, whether moving the grandfather clock, setting and starting it up for the very first time, or troubleshooting for whatever clock reason, the Grandfather Clock Owner’s Manual or Grandfather Clock Instruction Guide can be the go to place for clock information about how to do things right., whether it is a grandfather clock setup, a repair, or even changing the time for Daylight Savings time.

Most all grandfather clocks from high-end makers like Howard Miller Clocks, Hermle Clocks, Kieninger Clocks, Ridgeway Clocks and others come with a reasonably extensive manual with the basic How Tos for the new owner or the not so new owner revisiting this Grandfather Clock Instruction Manual and thinking of it as the first line of offense and defense to both manage the grandfather clock optimally while maintaining it correctly, to what do do if something is not right or something is quite wrong with the operation of the grandfather clock.

Interestingly, Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks, which are considered certainly amongst the highest-end grandfather clocks, call all of their grandfather clocks floor clocks, and the Owners Manual even says Guide to Howard Miller Floor Clock Operation. This is likely because it does not distinguish between grandmother clocks and hall clocks and tallcase clocks and longcase clocks, and many people do use the term Floor Clock, though we believe it to be a relatively small minority of the public, much less grandfather clock shoppers and horologists alike.

If you want to set some of the special features of your grandfather clock, like automatic night shutoff, or switch from the Westminster Chime to the Ave Maria Chime or reset the rotating moonphase Dial, the grandfather clocks instruction guide or owner’s manual would be a good place to go. Similarly, people who have received a grandfather clock that has already been used, either from an inheritance or estate, or a gift from a friend who is moving, or bought at a local yard sale or antique store, one of the first steps the new owner will take is to attempt to get the instruction manual for his or her clock. This is definitely one of our most frequently asked questions.
