Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you. The winding ports are the RIGHT side is for the chimes the LEFT is for the time. If the side that just turns it is either the mainspring has come unattatched from the winder barrel and needs to be reattatched or the mainspring is broken and needs to be replaced. The other side that is springing back on you means it is fully wound and the pressure needs to be released. If the side that needs to be released is the RIGHT side you can move the the minute hand clockwise stopping to let the clock chime do this for a 24 to 48 hour session this will release the pressure if it is the LEFT side the clock will need to run to release the pressure. Try these options out and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike

Expert:  Mike replied 3 years ago.

Hi, Yes here are some UK suppliers that can fix you right up the phone works the best for ordering your parts. Just give them the make and model of your clock and the movement number which should be located on the back of the movement.. Thanks Mike
