Anderson Casement Window Won't Open

Page 1 of 2  
Hi There, We have a Anderson Casement Window in our second floor washroom. It seems t o be sticking on the upper inner latch and won't release and open. The bott om releases fine. The window is about five years old. Anderson service thro ugh the dealer we bought it from in Toronto is non existent. If someone cou ld advise me, I'd be much obliged.

Call another Andersen dealer.Dundas wooden windows or HAS windows would be a good start.

If it doesn't move, but should, apply WD-40.
BTW, WD is a lubricant, and I'm sticking to my story no matter what.
Use the LRT and spray into the mechanism.

Yes, WD-40 is a brand not a specific product.

Wd-40 is certainly a lubricant. There may be better lubricants for given applications, it's not appropriate for all applications, etc. But it is a thin oil based lubricant. And it's worked for me for many decades.

Many decades? You sure are a good example of why WD is a lubricant.

Yes, "WD-40 Specialist Protective White Lithium Grease" is clearly a lubricant.
But "WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser", not so much.
Shirley you woodn't suggest the use of "WD-40 Specialist Industrial-Strength Degreaser" to lubricate a stuck window. ;-)

WD-40 is a brand and a specific product. Why someone would argue otherwise I don't understand. I don't know the name they use for the product now, but whatever they made, probably first, that comes in an aerosol can and is a light lubricant is the product referred to when people say WD-40. That's a more common use than using it as a brand is.

No! WD-40 is the brand. WD-40 offers a line of many different products. People *wrongly* refer to the "WD-40 Multi-Use Product" as WD-40.

Sorry, I agree with Micky on this one. If you just say "try some WD-40", it's clear to me and I think 99% of people that know of the product, that you're talking about the WD-40 lubricant, which is by far their most widely known and widely used product. Do you really think someone means their bike wash product?

Oh gosh, I once mistakenly tried to free up a stuck bolt with WD-40 spray on cyanoacrylate glue with rapid hardening. I was nuts.

WD-40 has BECOME a brand. It was originally a product of Rocket Chemical Company., which became WD-40 company in 1969. The WD-40 company had only one product - so it was both a product and a brand. after going public in about 1973 it started aquiring other companies and brands, including 3 in 1 oil, Lava Soap,and other products, so it was still a product, and a brand - and now also a distributor of other brands and products. They have recently added new product and rebranded other product under the WD-40 brand - WD-40 Bike, WD-40 Specialist, Blue Works, etc - which has really "muddied the waters"

The name you gave for the product is the new, long name. The same product also has a short name, which is WD-40.
WRT WD-40: It's a product. It's a brand. It's two things with the same name. It's a breath mint. It's a candy mint. It's two mints in one!

No, because it's not a lubricant, and won't help the Anderson casement window open.

WD has been used as a lubricant for many years. It's totally effective, and was made for that.
