Thanks for posting! Before I can offer an applicable replacement for this channel balance, I just need to know a bit more information about the bottom attachment. Please take a look at our 15-004 and 15-005 channel balance shoes, and note their depths. As you can see, they are 1-3/32" deep and 1" deep, respectively. Which one more closely matches your own bottom attachment?

I will also need to know the total length of the metal channel, as well as the weight of your window sash. You can determine its weight by removing it from the window and placing it on a scale.
A handy person from Florida says:
I checked with the caliper and it is close to 1-3/32". The total length of metal channel is 30"; exactly 30-1/16". I will get the scale for the weight

Thank you! It sounds like you may have our S385-30 channel balance. Take a look at that and see if that looks about right. Just let me know what the weight is and that should be it!
A handy person from Florida says:
Yes,it looks like mine but I cannot see in detail the inner part of the channel in your pictures. I will get the weight and I will get back to you shortly.
THX!!
A handy person from Florida says:
The weight is 45 pounds.
THX!
