Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. I get this problem quite often at my repair shop on antique clocks. The right weight runs the chimes the center weight runs the pendulum and the left weight runs the strike if the weight slips down every now and then there could be worn teeth on the sprocket that when it gets to the place that the teeth are worn it causes the weight to slip down or the bushing is loose or worn that the runs through the center of the sprocket holding the sprocket to the movement between the 2 brass plates that will need to be tightened or replaced. If you decide to get the movement checked out for these problems without you doing the work yourself I can locate a clock repair company in your area just let me know your zip code location and I'll find a few in your area. Thanks Mike.If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.PLEASE remember if you're satisfied with my answer rate my answerby using the STARS so I will be compensated by JustAnswer for helping you.

on closer examination, the chain links have stretched open and I think that is the problem. Any suggestions as to where i can get a replacement chain ??
Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.
Hi, Yes you can use the companies I use to order parts from just measure how long the chain is and give them that information.
