My house is 23 years old. The windows have a crank and open sideways.
only word I can find on them is "Truth". Doing a google search, it is
clear if that is a window manufacturer or not.
A really lousy picture of the crank is at:
Apparently I don't know much about using cameras either.
One window, the one we open most of course, is broken. The crank just
and nothing happens. Presumably a piece of the mechanism is broken.
So, how do I go about fixing this? Is Truth a window manufacturer?
they still in business? How do I get parts? How do I take it apart to
install the parts?
Should be a couple/few screws attaching the body to the window frame.
Open the window, remove 'em, and the whole thing should wiggle out of
the window. Look at what you're doing, and you'll figure it out. The
arm will slide out the channel on the bottom of the window. Measure the
length from the pivot pin to the end of the arm, either 8 or 9 inches,
usually. Right or left handed. Go to the hardware store, and buy a new
one. Of course, if the sill's been tiled, or built up in any way,
things will be tougher... Tom
