An awning window operator is a mechanism used to open and close a window. This is not a part of the hinge. It is a mechanical device that has a crank handle to turn that will open the window or close the window. The window operator is used to provide smooth window opening on a window that is set horizontally in the wall and moves out away from the wall when the operator is being turned. It will close the window by turning the crank or handle in the opposite direction from opening the window.
There are right and left hand operators. An awning window operator can be purchased as an electric operator but much more expensive than the hand crank system. The purpose of the awning operator will normally determine which device is the best one for the job. A window high in the wall would function better using an electric operator as the placement of the window would be inconvenient or even dangerous to open the window by hand.
If the operator needs repair, the awning replacement parts are available either online or through a parts dealer. Repairing the window crank may be as simple as oiling the moving parts to taking off the screws and finding the broken or bent part, going online or down to a local store and buying the replacement parts. After lubricating the slide with white grease and replacing the parts that were worn, reassemble the crank and screw in the screws. The new awning replacement parts should glide smoothly allowing easy operation of the operator while it opens and closes the window.
