    unwound can lead to jamming of the time mechanism As a general rule silencing the chime mechanisms should be done by using the function s of the chime selector levers only see section 8 When winding clocks without maintaining power the automatic beat adjustment can shift out of alignment The clock should therefore be re started see section 7 and the time be re set see section 6 after winding is completed When winding the clock and if possible use your free hand to stabilize the clock case Cable movements Insert the crank key provided into the crank holes located in the dial face as far as possible Depending on movement the time if available melody chime and hour strike mechanisms are wound clockwise or counterclockwise until the respective weight stops or is approximately 2 from the bottom of the wood movement mounting board The winding directions for your movement is Movement Left Centre Right P series movement clockwise na counter RWS movement clockwise counter clockwise Never wind the clock without having weights attached or lift the weights by hand while cranking This could result in the cables becoming tangled and jamming of the movement Cable key wind movements Insert the crank key provided into the crank holes located in the dial face as far as possible The time mechanism is wound counterclockwise until the weight stops or is approximately 2 from the bottom of the wood movement mounting board The quarter hour and hour strike mechanisms are wound clockwise until a noticeable resistance develops Never wind the clock without having weights attached or lift the weights by hand while cranking This could result in the cables becoming tangled and jamming of the movement Key wind movements Insert the winding key provided into the winding holes located in the dial face as far as possible All key wind mechanisms are wound clockwise until a noticeable resistance develops top of page 10 Adjusting the pendulum The length of the pendulum determines the running speed timekeeping of your clock The longer a pendulum the slower is its swinging speed To change the running speed move the pendulum bob up or down and thus shorten or lengthen the effective length that is the distance between cent er of gravity of the pendulum and pendulum hook The pendulum bob can be moved up and down by turning the adjustment nut Depending on pendulum type this adjustment nut is above or below the pendulum bob Before you make any change observe and note the timekeeping of your clock over a longer period of time for example 12 or 24 hours lyre and Wooden pendulums The adjustment nut is located below the pendulum bob Turning the adjustment nut as seen from above counter clockwise will shorten the effective pendulum length and the clock will run faster Turning the adjustment nut clockwise will lengthen the effective pendulum length and the clock will run slower The correct adjustments for your clock can be found in the chart here Pendulum Length Turns Mins 24hrs Grid Wooden and Rod 65cm 1 1 2 1 min Grid Wooden and Rod 35cm 3 4 1 min Please make sure that the pendulum bob remains fully seated against the adjustment nut and pull it down as needed Remember to reset the time after adjusting the pendulum bob top of page 11 Automatic night shut off The Kieninger movements in Clocks Chimes clocks have automatic night shut off between 10 00 P M and 7 15 A M for quarter hour strike movements or 10 00 P M and 7 00 A M for half hour strike movements If your clock does not strike or chime during the daytime its movement is in the night cycle You need to move the clock hands back 12 hours to go into the day cycle Before doing so the the chime selector lever has to be set on SILENT Moving the hands while the night shut off is in operation could damage the chime mechanism If after setting the time the clock does not chime properly this is not a defect The movement has a self correcting feature which synchronizes the chimes after 1 to 2 hours top of page 12 Care and maintenance Your Clocks and Chimes clock with its Kieninger movement requires minimum care and maintenance Remember to wind the clock as required by the movement i e every eight days for an eight day movement It is a point to note that the weights are an attractive aspect of the clock s aesthetic appeal so winding every four five days will keep them in the central area of display Keep the door closed Check periodically to ensure that your clock is hanging level and securely If applicable check the weights occasionally to ensure that they are still tightly assembled hooks and or loops are properly hung and where applicable the cables run in their guides Include the clock in your housekeeping routine clean and polish your clock cabinet as frequently as you do your other furniture However take extreme care working on and around the clocks dial and moving parts to avoid damaging the hands or the movement Every 2 3 years you should oil the movement with a fine clock or sewing machine oil Kieninger recommends that your clock movement be oiled synthetic oil No 859 by Etsyntha every five 5 years by a qualified person and thoroughly cleaned every ten 10 years Extreme environmental conditions air humidity and quality temperature etc may necessitate more frequent oiling and or cleaning top of page 13 Relocating the clock When relocating or moving the clock all weights and the pendulum have to be removed from the clock to avoid unnecessary damage Before removing the weights cable movements have to be wound up completely and secured to ensure they don t unravel during transportation Once the cables are secure remove the pendulum and the weights and pack them so that they are protected form damage ideally
