How to re-install widow screens back into vinyl channels.

You might be trying to put it in the wrong channel or have the wrong screen on the wrong window. It is pretty easy to do though and you should have any issues.

window screens

Yeah, should be pretty straight forward, if you still can get them in a picture of it may help with some suggestions.

+1... I have also seen instances where the frame was "over-shimmed", causing it to be very difficult to both operate the sashes and the screens... Some more detail on the situation would help.
