Andersen Double Hinged French Door Problem


Thanks Russ! I'll do some of my own research and if I find anything I'll let you know.

If you look carefully, you'll see that there really are very few unique mechanisms in the marketplace. Take a close look at your lockset and go to Rona/Home Depot/Lowes etc and look at each of the locksets on display. You may just find your lockset, slightly modified, under a different brandname/model number. This will take research. Look for common points on the outside of the lockset. Look for common size, features, protrusions, anything that might betray the contents of the package.

I've found this to be true on many products. Products made by a Taiwan firm carrying as many as 7 brand names in North America (Ridgid, Delta, Jet, BusyBee, SteelCity, Grizzley, King...).

Hope this helps.

If you have a broken spring, why not look for companies that make springs? If I need a bearing for a craftsman shop vac, I go to a bearing company.

I called Anderson for a replacement spring...which should be like maybe a buck...and they said I have to purchase the entire mechanism for $172.00!! I'm thinking about looking around at hardware stores or even calling a spring company, but does anyone know off hand where I can find one?

Thanks,
Russ
Hi Russ,
I found a supplier for the replacement Anderson Door spring and have a number of them for sale. If you or anyone are interested in purchasing one, please send me an email at budscarp@aol.com and I'll ship one out to you ASAP. 6-3-09

I know this thread is over four years old, but does anyone know where I can get a spring for the door handle or another solution?
