How to Adjust a Casement or Awning Window That Doesn't Close Properly:
1. Check the exterior of window for uneven sightlines.
2. Remove screen and completely open the window.
3. Place Milgard adjustment wrench onto the base of the stud, found between the support arm and the track of the lower hinge (look at pdf instructions for images)
4. Rotate the wrench away from the lock side of window to decrease the amount of sash drag. Once the stud flats are parallel to the track, the maximum sash drag adjustment is reached.
5. Check upper hinges if still seeing sash drag.
6. If need adjustment, follow steps 3 to 6 but rotate the wrench toward the lock side of the window.
7. Close and open window to check adjustment.

3. If the window frame is not square, adjust the hinges in the same direction, to see if the sash opens smoothly
4. Close and open window to check adjustment.
