Balances cannot be repaired, they are made to be replaced.
A handy person from Michigan says:
I measured and found I need the 28" s900. I weighed my sash at 16lb, do I need the red or green tip?

Mike from SWISCO responded:
It is best to replace to the original color. If you cannot determine the original color, it looks like either the red or green would work:

Red tip has a sash support range of 10 through 22 lbs.
Green tip has a sash support range of 14 through 26 lbs.
