Left handed operator and handle

A quick learner from Valrico, FL says:
I can get the window to open but I can not get it to close. The handle comes out of the operator.

It sounds like the operator gears are stripped out, so the whole mechanism will have to be replaced. We may have a replacement for this but in order to make a recommendation I'll require a clear photo of the entire part removed. Would that be possible? I specifically need to see the design link arm.

In the meantime, you can see our full list of possible replacements here . Please note that this style operator isn't as popular as it once was. There is a chance we don't have what you need to repair the window; I will of course try my best, but I don't want to get your hopes up.

Here are the best pictures I can get. I'm having trouble getting the operator out with out breaking the unit. Please advise. I really need to get a new operator and handle to keep out the rain. We live in Florida and it rains. A lot. Thank you

I completely understand your situation since I am familiar with the daily 3 pm storms in Florida. Unfortunately, the operator's arms are not visible in your new photos. All I can make out is the internal gear, which we can not use to narrow down your options. We will need to see a clear, unobstructed photo of the arms that attach the operator to the window linkage to determine if something on our inventory might work for your repair.

Here are some additional photos with the connection arm of the operator. Any suggestions on getting entire operator out? This would help us both. Thank you.

It's tough to make out, but I think you have an operator like the 39-085 , which has a side installation hole that' s covered up by the wood trim on the side of the window behind the operator. Take a look and see what you think.

The operator did have a screw at the bottom left and right of crank. Please advise with the additional pictures what type you think I'll need. Thank you.

Looking at your new photos, I still think the 39-085 is the closest to your operator. It's still a little different, and due to the age of your window I cannot guarantee that it will work, but it remains our best and only option.
