Hi Umesh, My name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you. What exactly does the weight or weights do & what weight slips? What type clock do you have Wall, Mantle, Grandfather?. First check to see if there is any damage to the sprocket that the chain hangs on like missing or worn teeth or from being loose. Next is maintenance a build up of gummy old oil & dust could cause this problem it may need cleaning and oiling as they should about every 3 to 5 years. Check these options out and let me know what happens. Thanks Mike
