This may seem an obvious question, but before you call our customer service team here at The Window Doctor, always check if the screws holding the handle to the window frame are tight.
After time, and after a lot of use, the screws can become lose, making the handle wobbly and sometimes affecting its ability to function.
Checking this is simple, just follow the steps below.
Once complete your handle has now been tightened to the frame! The above process is possible for anyone with some DIY experience and a few basic hand tools. If, however, you do not feel able to that, or would be more comfortable leaving it to the experts, then contact our friendly team to arrange an appointment.
If your window handle is a little bit more along the beaten track than just being lose, then it may be that the handle is broken. The biggest failure with the handles themselves is that the handle cracks internally meaning in it not being able to have any purchase on the spindle, resulting in the handle spinning 360 degrees without opening the window.
The second most common breakage in window handles is the handle breaking off from the base section entirely, leaving you with no way of operating your window.
Both scenarios will result in the need for the faulty handle to be removed and a new one installed. Widow handles come in a huge selection of colours and designs. It is also important to ensure the correct spindle length is chosen to ensure it works with your existing window lock.
Because of this, we stock a wide variety of handles with a selection of colours, designs and spindle lengths.
Having a broken window handle replaced by The Window Doctor is cost effective, quick and can save hundreds of pounds compared to replacing your entire window.
Our team can arrange a free appointment to diagnose any faults and repair rather than replace, ensuing your windows are back to full health.
Remember, Why Replace… We Repair…
