Can not open the wooden window blindes.

I have classic white vertical wooden blinds in the window. Unfortunately something happend with them - I can only pull them completely up. The problem is with opening blinds, so the sun light can come inside the room. In the left upper corner is a stick which is for opening or closing blinds - you can turn this stick left or right. Now it is blocked and I can not turn with the stick to open blinds (now I have then closed). Please help me to fix my blinds.

Answers :


If you will take the blind down and look into the top of the headrail, you will probably find that one of the metal keepers that are attached to the end of the ladder (the strings that the slats rest on) have come out slightly from the ladder drum (the round drum shaped part that the ladder attaches to in the headrail) and is hitting the inner edge of the headrail keeping it from being allowed to turn. Just put it back in - the same way the others are done and that should fix it. Other than that one of your ladder strings may have slipped off the ladder drum and could be causing the problem; although when that happens you will typically see that your slats are not hanging level on the ladder string where the problem is. Other than that it could be that your tilt mechanism is just bad. Most quality blind manufacturers no longer use the tilt mechanism with the wand as they do not hold up on wood and faux wood blinds. They now use a cord tilt which is about fool proof and will hold up. 35 years experience installing blinds of all types.
Try to see if the rope that controls the up and down motion for the blind is not binding against the stick knob that it is attached to in order to see this you have to take the blind down and look at it from the top
