Velux KEM 140 Operator

A home owner from Garden Grove CA says:
My KEM140 motor operator has stopped working and I'm investigating ways to get my roof window operation again either with a new motor operator or manual hook using a pole. Attached are pictures of my existing window, the hex coming out of the existing gearbox measures 1/2" across the flats. It appears that your hook P/N 39-551 might work with my existing hex if I wanted to use a manual telescopic pole. Can you tell me what my options are for possible manual or motor operation? Thank you for any help you can provide.

We don't have any motorized operator hardware, unfortunately. You would need to contact someone who deals in electronics. Our 39-551 may work for your hardware, but if not you would need a new operator like our 39-405, which is the new style Velux makes.
