Okay, I'm back still with the original question.

I had asked if anyone had lubed the crank handles on their jalousie windows, just so I could get some advance tips on how/where to take them apart, put the lube, etc.

A couple of people suggested that it was probably actually the hinge/pivot points that were stiff, and to lube those.

Well, I got in and lubed all of the pivot points really well with Boeshield T-9, then ran the windows open and closed a few times. Still just as stiff as before.

Let that sit a few days just in case it would soak in. Nope. No change.

So.... has anyone lubed the crank handles on their jalousie windows? If so, do you have any particular tips before I have a go?

Thanks,

Raya

Sorry Liz but if you notice the date of the last post it is Oct 30, 2009.

Stiff Jalousie windows can be caused by a number of things:
  1. stiff or hardened seals
  2. dirty or binding pivots in the actuator arms or window pane pivots
  3. worn or dirty operator (the part the crank handle connects to)
  4. trailer body out or square which is causing the window frame to distort and bind
Initially try spraying some WD40 onto all the pivot points and inside the crank operator, this will help clean and lubricate the parts.
