Tilt vinyl window is stuck...


The top half of a tilt vinyl window is stuck. It will not come down even an inch in order to tilt it in for cleaning. What can I do?

Are they double hung type sash windows? Not all of those are actually true double hung windows (so the tops don't move.) I only mention this because I only recently found this out when I bought a place with a whole bunch of mismatched replacement windows installed.

Are you sure it's not a single hung window? Do the other upper sashes move?
