Installed the new window frame on Saturday......After a careful examination of the old window I noticed that the top of the window does not have a metal hinge as such and the original window must have broken away at the top..Therefore the window was locked!!!..We used this window daily/nightly when we were in Fl for three & half months last year and this year and a few times last summer... The new window came with a "red" sticker stating that this window is for emergency use only
and instructions how it is to be opened.....Hence....opening and closing it must have weakened the top "connection across the top of the window"...The original did not have that sticker....
Just passing on this in case someone else opens this window to allow fresh air to circulate.".ie Read the fine print"
---A costly mistake.... J
