Adjustment of PVC windows in-house
Plastic windows in our time have become verypopular, thanks to the beautiful design, remarkable properties and ease of use. And they can serve long enough. However, from time to time adjustment of PVC windows is required. This will allow them to work long and efficiently. The main advantage of the presented products is that you can make their adjustment yourself without causing the master.
To conduct the procedure, you will needhexagon, which comes complete with the product, cross and flat screwdrivers and pliers. There are certain malfunctions, in which the adjustment of PVC windows is simply necessary: breakage of any element of the fittings, defective work of the casement (poor fit, grazing of the frame elements), wear of the locking bars, tight movement of the handle.
It should be noted that adjusting the correct operationmechanism itself, or with the help of a specialist. However, the adjustment of PVC windows is very simple. For example, the flap, which has almost every product, is debugged with a hexagonal wrench. If it touches the lower part of the frame during closing, it is necessary to open it, turn the screw that is at the end next to the upper loop, a few millimeters in a clockwise direction. Strongly turn the key is not necessary. If you need to adjust the sash vertically, then it is desirable to close it, remove the protective cap from the lower hinge, insert the hexagon into it and turn it clockwise a few millimeters. After all the operations performed, check how freely the opening frame is moving, and if necessary, retry the operation.
Further adjustment of PVC windows provides for inspectionand replacement of the locking strips. This is simple: you need to open the window, remove the rubber plugs from the upper and lower hinges on the upper and lower hinges, then loosen the first ones. Now you need to adjust the position of the leaf with the adjusting screw first horizontally, and only then vertically.
If the opening element does not fit securelyframe, the adjustment of PVC windows is as follows: on the lateral end of the wing are eccentric, allowing you to adjust the density of the clamp. Rotate them with a hexagon.
Adjustment of the accessories of PVC windows can beis made both with the help of a hexagon, and with the use of other screwdrivers. If, for whatever reason, the jamming of the handle occurs and the door can not be closed, you will have to resort to dismantling the parts. To do this, remove the cover protecting the mechanism of the handle, and press the lock, which worked at an inopportune time. If it does not turn, you either need to move the leaf closer to the counterpart of the lock, or insert a thin metal plate between it and the frame. With a tight turn, the fittings must be lubricated with engine oil. When parts are damaged, it is better to completely replace them with new ones.
In order for the window to work for a long time, it is necessary to periodically inspect all of its mechanisms, carry out regular cleaning from dirt and dust, and lubricate all the nodes with engine oil.
If the problem is more serious, and you can not deal with it yourself, you'll have to call the master installer. Otherwise, you risk breaking the window.
