Unlock the pendulum holder from its shipping position by pushing it to the right with your thumb or finger. SEE PICTURE. Carefully place pendulum on hanger.
Insert fresh C batteries with the + at the top. Please change your batteries once a year. This will ensure accurate timekeeping and a consistent chime sound for your enjoyment.
If your clock starts chiming erratically, or (if so equipped) the pendulum stops, please install new batteries.
Set time by advancing the minute hand (NEVER the hour hand) or turn the hand setting knob at the rear of movement clockwise or counter-clockwise to the correct time. The correct chiming will start at the next full hour. In the interim, the quarter hour chimes may sound at the wrong time. This will correct itself at the next full hour.
If the hour striking is incorrect, move the hour (short) hand to the hour that the clock is striking.
The chime sequence at 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 hour is electronically programmed and cannot be demonstrated by moving the minute hand or the time set knob manually.
At the rear of the clock movement are three additional switches and one knob for the following functions:
Switch with symbols
O = shut off (chime and strike both off)
W = Westminster Chime 4/4 melody plus full hour strike
B = Bim-Bam hour and half hour strike (W2114 and W2214)
A = Ave Maria 4/4 Chime with full hour strike (W2115 and W2215)
Switch with symbols
= "Sun" position. Clock will chime and strike during the full 24 hour period.
= "No Moon" position. The clock will not chime for a period of 8 hours following the time you moved the switch to this position. For example: if you wish the chimes to be silent from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m., move the switch from to sometime between 10:45 and 11 p.m. The chimes will automatically become silent each day from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
= "Moon" position. The chime sound will reduce by half of daytime volume for a period of 8 hours. Use the same setting procedure as for "No Moon".
By turning the knob, the chime loudness can be a adjusted. Turning the knob clockwise reduces the volume.
Switch with symbols
By setting the switch to the position and the melody switch to "W" the clock will chime the Westminster melody every 15 minutes and strike the hour after it plays the hour chime.
By setting the switch to the position and the melody switch to "W", the clock will chime the Westminster melody on the hour only, followed by the hour strike.
By setting the switch to the position and the melody switch to "B" the clock with movement W2114 or W2214 will strike Bim-Bam every hour and half hour.
By setting the switch to the position and the melody switch to "B" the clock with movement W2114 or W2214 will strike Bim-Bam every hour.
By setting the switch to the position and the melody switch to "A" the clock with movement W2115 or W2215 will chime the Ave Maria melody every 15 minutes and strike the hour after it plays the hour chime.
By setting the switch to the position and the melody switch to "A", the clock with movement W2115 or W2215 will chime the Ave Maria melody on the hour only, followed by the hour strike.
Hang your clock vertically to the desired location. If possible, your clock should be mounted on a wall stud. Be sure that the clock will not shift on the wall when the door is opened.
Start pendulum by moving it approximately 1 1/2 inch to the left or right and releasing it. Be sure that the pendulum can swing freely.
Due to the high accuracy and reliability of the quartz movement, adjustment to timekeeping is not necessary.
The moonphase disc shows you the position of the moon during its 29 1/2 day cycle.
New moon: moon is not visible
Waxing moon: moon is rising on the left side
Full moon: moon is visible in the center of the dial opening
Waning moon: moon is descending on the right side of the dial opening
The moonphase disc is shifted between 22:00 and 2:00 o'clock. During this time you should not try to set the moon disc by hand.
How to set the moon disc: Inside the back of the clock you can see the back bottom part of the moon disc. Turn this disc (if the shift mechanism is not engaged) to the correct position in the lunar phase.
