Question

Does this french door open?


We recently bought a house built in 1999. The patio doors swing out and are Anderson C16-2 4-99.7. Looking out, the door on the left swings out and opens but we can't figure out how to open the one on the right side.
All hinges and latches are in place and nothing is obstructing it. Does anyone know what the secret is?

Push the handle down and give it a push.

Yeah, might be just painted shut
Look for a latch in between the doors on that door

You may need to order the passive hardware (if no latches) to open it: http://www.andersenwindows.com/servl...&ssbinary=true
