How to Set a Quartz Westminster Chime Regulator Wall Clock

There are many models and styles of Westminster chiming wall clocks with quartz movement for accurate timekeeping and beauty. Antique models do not have as many options as the newer models, which include melody selection, volume control and a night or silent setting. When the battery becomes weak or wears out, a quartz Westminster chime regulator wall clock needs resetting to the correct time after installation of a new battery.

Quartz-movement wall clocks use a battery to operate the hands and keep time.

Step 1

Place a forefinger at the tip of the minute hand and turn it clockwise to the correct time. The hour hand and minute hand will move as well.

Step 2

Grasp the time setting knob between a thumb and forefinger and turn it clockwise. Turn the time setting knob clockwise on models with this option.

Step 3

Slide the three-position switch to "Off" for no chimes, "West" for Westminster chimes on the hour, or "Melody 2" to hear the optional chimes on the hour.

Step 4

Turn the volume control knob right to increase the chime volume or left to decrease the volume of the selected chime.
