Thanks for posting. Sounds like you have a spiral balance. Before I recommend a replacement, can you tell me what the diameter of the tube is? Can you also tell me the weight of the sash?
A quick learner from kissimmee fl says:
the tube on the balance is 3/8" and the weight of the sash is 31 lbs.
Also do you carry the snap in stop for the top of the rail.

Thanks! I would recommend our S900-30 with a Yellow Tip strength option. I'm afraid we do not carry the sash stop you need, however.
