Having corded blinds that won’t go up can be quite a nuisance. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to troubleshoot and fix the issue. Before you begin looking for a replacement, here are some tips to try.
First, check the cord for any knots or tangles. Pull on each cord independently to make sure it's not stuck. If there are any knots, gently untie them. If the cords have become too tangled, it may be better to cut them and tie a new knot.
Next, make sure the blinds are properly installed. If the blinds are installed incorrectly, the cords may not function properly. Check to make sure the blinds are level and the cords are evenly spaced. If the blinds are not level, it may be necessary to adjust the mounting hardware.
If the cords are still not functioning properly, there may be an issue with the pulley system. The pulleys may be too loose or too tight. You should first try to adjust the tension on the pulleys. If the issue persists, you may need to replace the pulleys.
If the cord is still not functioning properly, you should check whether the cord is frayed or worn out. If it is, it may be necessary to replace the cord. To do this, you should first remove the cord from its casing. Then, untie the knot at the bottom of the blinds and remove the cord from the window. Next, thread the new cord through the casing and tie a knot at the bottom. Finally, reattach the cord to the window.
Finally, if none of the above steps have been successful, it may be time to replace the entire blind. To do this, you should first measure the window to ensure you get the right size. Then, remove the old blinds and install the new ones. Make sure the cords are evenly spaced and tensioned correctly, and that the blinds are level.
Knowing how to fix corded blinds that won't go up can save you time and money. If you follow the steps above, you should be able to troubleshoot and fix the issue quickly and easily. If none of the above steps work, you may need to replace the blinds.
