SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Pella crank operator

A quick learner from Danbury, Ct. says:
Hi, I am selling my house and the potential buyer wants me to repair the windows. I am looking to replace a left hand and a right hand Pella window operator. Right hand one is missing and the left is stripped. Ca I have uploaded some pictures of the unit that I am looking for.and a picture of the window unit if that helps. Our house was built in the 60' and I assume that the windows are from that era. The arm is 15" to the bend or elbow. There is a slide at the end of the arm. The body is 2 1/4" X 4". I'm hoping you can help. The cranks says Pella.
Many thanks,

Thank you for posting on the discussion board and submitting your photos to us, Don.

From the images you've submitted so far, it looks like you have awning windows that open up from the bottom. However, we will need to see photos of the complete operator with the arm and the clip on the end of the arm in order to accurately identify the operator.

Definitely awning windows. Here are three more pics of the unit and track.

Don, thank you for your patience. We are still in the process of researching possible replacement operators.

I will post an update on the discussion board as more information becomes available.

Don, we've come to discover this operator has been discontinued and is no longer available.

I am sorry we cannot supply this part to you.

Dave and Mike,

Thanks so much for your help. I guess I will have to get creative.
