Broken Caradco Crank Handles

A handy person from Montana says:
Just bought a house and about half of the half of the handles for opening the swing out windows are snapped off. Is it possible to replace these? If so, what parts would I need? Parts don?t necessarily have to match original equipment.

Thanks for writing in. See our 39-037, 39-069, or 39-070. Look them over and see which has dimensions that best match your old operator.

Thanks! How would I go about replacing these operators? My windows are from 1971 and the wood framing isn't in great shape. If I can get the wood frame peeled off is it pretty straightforward?

You will have to remove the sill trim. See the video below. This is for a different kind of operator, but the process for removing this kind of sill trim is the same.

Thanks for the full installation video! Looks like a doable project. Previously you shared some replacement operators with me. Now I'm wondering if I could only replace the handles that cracked without buying the full operator. Is that a product that you carry?

You're very welcome, I'm glad you found it helpful.

I'm afraid that those handle's can't be repaired or replaced, as they're part of the mechanism itself. I apologize for the inconvenience!
