Window Crank Replacement: How to Replace a Faulty Window Crank and Improve Your Window’s Functionality

Crank Replacement

A window crank is the device used to open and close casement windows. Over time, window cranks can become damaged or worn, making it difficult to operate your windows. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to replace a faulty window crank and improve the functionality of your windows.

Tools and Materials Needed

Before you begin, make sure you have the following tools and materials:

  • Flathead screwdriver
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Pliers
  • New window crank

Steps to Replace a Window Crank

Here are the basic steps to replace a faulty window crank:

  1. Remove the Old Crank: Use a flathead or Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws holding the old window crank in place. Once the screws have been removed, use pliers to gently pull the old crank out of the window frame.
  2. Install the New Crank: Insert the new window crank into the hole left by the old crank, making sure it is aligned properly with the gears in the window mechanism. Use a screwdriver to attach the new crank to the window frame with the screws provided.
  3. Test the Window: Test the window to ensure that the new crank is functioning properly and the window is opening and closing smoothly.

Benefits of Window Crank Replacement

Replacing a faulty window crank can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Improved Functionality: A new window crank can make it easier to open and close your windows, improving their functionality.
  • Enhanced Security: A properly functioning window crank can enhance the security of your home and help keep intruders out.
  • Increased Energy Efficiency: A new window crank can help ensure that your windows are properly sealed and reduce energy loss.
