Unable to close tilt and turn window - HELP
« on: 19 November 2009 06:37 pm »
We have PVC windows that open inwards 2 ways -from the top and from the side ( tilt and turn ). Somehow we have managed to open the window from the side when it was already open tilting inwards from the top and now it won't close.

Any solutions please.

With the window open, you need to turn the handle into the tilt position. You might have a miss-handling device on the window which you need to press in first before the handle will turn. This will be fitted on the side of the window and should be sprung.

Once the handle is in the tilt position, push the window in at the top until vertical then turn the handle to the open position. You can now close the window as normal.

ABSOLUTE GENIUS!

I've literally spent about 2 hours frustratingly trying to resolve this problem.  Reading this has really made my day! So much so I have registered to this forum just to post this!

Amazing that the Beaufort Aluminium information that was provided with my new house did not explain this little spring reset button!

Thank you so much :-)
