Proper Maintenance for Longevity

To keep your Entrygard casement window operator in top shape, regular maintenance is crucial. Here are some tips to ensure that your operator continues to work efficiently:

Clean the operator: Dust and debris can accumulate on the operator, leading to reduced performance. Regularly clean the operator using a soft cloth and a mild detergent. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as these can damage the operator.

Lubricate the moving parts: Over time, the moving parts of the operator can become stiff and difficult to operate. Apply a silicone-based lubricant to the gears, hinges, and other moving parts to ensure smooth operation.

Inspect the operator: Regularly inspect the operator for signs of wear and tear. If you notice any damage or loose parts, address these issues promptly to avoid further problems.

Despite proper maintenance, you may encounter some issues with your Entrygard casement window operator. Here are some common problems and their solutions:

Difficulty opening or closing the window: If your casement window is difficult to open or close, first check for any obstructions in the operator or the window sash. If there are no obstructions, try lubricating the moving parts of the operator. If the issue persists, you may need to replace the operator.

Window does not stay open: If your casement window does not stay open, the operator arm may need adjustment. Check the arm for any signs of damage or wear, and replace it if necessary. If the arm is in good condition, adjust the tension on the arm to ensure that the window stays open.

Operator makes noise during operation: If your Entrygard casement window operator makes noise during operation, first check for any loose parts or debris in the operator.
