Tilt and turn windows
 
Hi,

One of my tilt and turn windows doesn't work correctly. If you're familiar with tilt and turn windows, you know you tilt it a quarter to open it at the top hinged at the bottom and turn it halfway to open it fully, hinged at the side. My bedroom window handle only turns quarter of the way and it is impossible to tilt it halfway.

Any idea how to fix/adjust this?

Did you open any coverings to inspect the mechanism? Something could be jammed in the gears or it could be worn out and need replacement.

Hi,

I haven't got a scooby doo how to do that! I have literally discovered the problem and posted this. Shall I have a look? What am I unscrewing/tinkering with?

Post a photo of the mechanism, so we can see the type you have.
Do you know who made the windows? They might have info or replacement parts available.
