My name's Kel.
Start by moving the bottom sash so it's centered it the opening.
With one hand push in on the jamb liner --
say -- start with the left one --
while pushing in, that is, away from the sash --
gently pull on the upper left corner of the sash.
It should by the inside guide track.
Then do the same thing on the right side.
Then come back to the left and repeat.
This time the corner of the sash should completely disengage the liner tracks and be loose. Do the other side and lower the sash so it's perpendicular to the opening.
It will pivot on pins that engage spring loaded brackets.
Twist the sash so one of the corners comes straight up.
Then do the other.
It should now be free.
Same procedure for the upper sash.
If the jamb liners are rigid and there's no play they're not tilt in sash.
Have I answered your question?
Dovetail Greene, I can do as you said and get the lower (inner) sash to tilt and remove, but the upper (outer) sash will not clear the frame. Is there a tool that will help spred the frame? These windows have probably never been tilted in before.
Craftsman makes a reversible bar clamp that would allow you to exert outward pressure on both jamb liners at the same time.
If you try this
These clamps could easily crack the frame.
Wow, I have done what your expert suggested I do. I don't have a problem with the charge but I really would like to have a valid suggestion if not answer. An expert should be able to tell me more than I can do as a person not very handy around the house. If you do not know just say so or tell me I don't know what I am talking about. I will not use you guys again.
If I haven't answered your question or a particular suggestion doesn't work --
let me know
and I'll come up with an alternate.
We keep working together until the problem is resolved.
You're not paying for any first answer.
Part of the unwritten deal is
you give me feedback til we're done.
Let's continue and get this done.
