Does anyone have the same problem?

Have a Trend by Sligh grandfather clock, style 891WM-461.

Clock is synchronized and chimes correctly on the quarter hour, half hour, 3/4 hour and hour.

It fails to strike after the hour chime is completed.

If I place light fingertip pressure on top of the left weight it will chime the correct hour.

Afterwards, it chimes correctly on each quarter hour and continues not to strike again after the next hour chime completes.

Has any one experienced this problem?
Any recommendations on how to correct this problem?
