Wright Window Operator

A home owner from Greensburg, PA says:
This is a double arm operator, with the longer arm about 9". The operator says Wright, and the crank handle says Hurd. The mount is rectangular, and the color is nickle

I would be happy to find an operator to replace yours, but I will need more information. Could you show me a picture of yours removed from the window? That would be a huge help. Thanks!
A quick learner from greensburg,pa says:
I am unable to remove because of a risk of the window falling two floors. Here is a picture of the left device. I need however the right side crank. Thank You

Thank you. Start with our 39-027E and 39-028E. These look like they may be a match, but see what you think.

Tom,
The picture a "contractor from Raeford, NC" sent Dave is exactly what I need.
the picture of 39-027 & 28 E does not appear to have the double arm.

Your operator does not have a double arm, either. That second arm beneath the main arm of your operator in your picture is actually part of the hinge, which is a separate part entirely.
A quick learner from greensburg,pa says:
So when the window drops 1/4" when opened, do you think the problem is with the main arm or the hinge?
Thanks

Hmm... it sounds like the hinges may not be secure. When the window drops 1/4", is it loose? Carefully look at the hinges at the top and bottom to see how well they're secured to the frame. Also examine where they attach to the sash itself.

Thank You very much
