New Haven Clock that does not Chime correctly.
by Sherry Perrie
We have a New Haven Mantel Clock that is electric. Anytime the power dims it stops. Then we have to manually wind the clock to get it started again. I am thinking this was thought to be a great innovation in the 1940's, but it turned out to be a nuisance appliance. Now the chimes do not coincide with the time. For example, at 4 o'clock it chimes 4 times. Is there a way we can correct this? If we have to have it repaired, what should we specifically ask.
