I moved into a house. There is one vinyl window with a problem. If you unlatch the window, the top half drops like a guillotine. Smash. I'm surprised it isn't broken yet. None of the other windows in the house do this.
I don't see any place where there would be a spring or counter-balance mechanism. Do I just need to get the whole thing replaced, or is there a way to take this apart? If I can DiY this thing, then how would I service it and where would I find parts (usually without knowing the part names, every web search seems to take you to Microsoft's web site... for windows).
