I live in a detached condo complex in Warren, Michigan, built in November of 1997.

The condo has Anderson windows installed, of the 'crank' type variety - where you crank the windows open and shut.

Recently my bedroom window will crank open all the way, but will not shut all the way - stopping about an inch from closing. Upon examination, it almost seems like the gear is rubbing on something - yet, I don't want to force it closed, in fear of breaking it. There doesn't appear to be anything obstructing the gears.

1. Do you have any suggestions as to what I might try to do to fix it?

2. Do you have any recommendations as to an Anderson window repair dealer close to Warren, MI?

google for the Andersen(spelled with an E) website and there is a dealer locator as well as links to teck support. I suspct that youmay have slipped a cog link in a high wind.

BTW, this is called a casement window if it hinges on the side and an awning window if the hinge is at the top
