Pella actually uses a variety of balance manufacturers, so I'm not sure what yours is. Please take a few pictures of the balances in question and we can work from there. Thanks!

Thanks, Steve

PS can you use the Pella serial number? (once I figure out what it is)

Thanks, Steve. We can help with this balance, yes. It will have to be custom made. It is not actually Pella brand, so I don't think knowing the serial number will help. I actually only one last piece of information. There should be a metal clip at the end of the pulley string. Please show me this clip and we can get started on your replacement balance.

Hi - I have been negligent in finishing up my order. **I will take a picture of the hook and send in.

Also, do you do repairs or could you tell me how to fix my spare (broken unit) after I pay for and receive my 2 balance assemblies?

Great, I will wait for the picture of your metal clip.

I'm afraid we do not do repairs. See the video below. It's for a different kind of balance but the principle should be more or less the same.

Hi Paul,

2 Sept 2015 Hi. here are the pictures of the hook for my Pella vinyl non-tilt sash windows. I have pictures of the hook.

1) I would like to order 2 balancers
2) I would like to purchase an extra (string) hook

What is the next step?

I was curious. Any idea why Pella would not use Pella balancers?

Thanks! I have emailed you a custom balance form, which you should receive shortly. You can use this to place your order.
