ID My Window Part: Pella Window Operator Question and Identification

Customer: I am interested in purchasing the following product from you:

 S1084 Pella casement Roto Sill Mounted Operator 

All of the measurements you show for the part on your website match the one I currently have except one, the center to center distance between the mounting screw holes.  You have this as 9/16”.  Mine, however, seems to be 3/4” (maybe a bit less). 

see that my part is slightly different from the one you show in your pictures of the part but is closer to the one you show in your schematic.  If you look at the two, you will see that the tabs where the mounting screws go in are different from the real picture and the schematic.  The tabs on the “arm side” of the schematic are larger than the tabs in the part picture and have a hole off center of the tab.  My part has these larger tabs with the off-center hole.  

Do you have any knowledge of multiple operator parts for these old Pella windows?  Also, would I be able to ask you for some more measurements of the part you have to see if it might still work for me? (picture below)

R&R Response:

From your picture it looks as though you have an older version – the exact style you have is no longer available. S1084 is the closest available option.

 the screw hole Center to Center measurement in the drawing for S1084 is correct at 9/16” center to center.

If your mounting screw hole measurements are different then It would require new holes to be drilled out (old holes if very close we recommend to be patched and filled) and then new mounting screw holes drilled out for secure fit.

Here is the link to the S1084


When it comes to maintaining your Pella windows, one important aspect is being able to identify the window operator. The window operator is the mechanism that allows you to open and close your windows, and knowing how to identify it can help you troubleshoot any issues that may arise. Here are some key steps to help you identify your Pella window operator:

Step 1: Check the Type of Window

Pella windows come in various styles, including casement, awning, double-hung, and sliding windows. The type of window you have will determine the type of window operator you have. For example, casement windows typically have a crank handle operator, while double-hung windows have a different type of hardware.

Step 2: Look for the Operator Handle

Inspect your window to locate the operator handle. The handle is usually located on the bottom of the window frame for casement windows, while double-hung windows have a different type of locking mechanism. The operator and handle is the part that you use to open and close the window, so it's important to identify it correctly.

Step 3: Check for Branding or Markings

Pella windows often have branding or markings on the window frame that can help you identify the window operator. Look for any labels, stickers, or engravings that indicate the manufacturer or model of the window operator. This information can be useful if you need to replace or repair the operator in the future.

Step 4: Take Note of the Design

Each type of Pella window operator has a unique design that can help you identify it. Take note of the shape, size, and color of the operator mechanism. This information can be helpful when researching or seeking assistance with your window operator.

By following these steps, you can successfully identify the window operator on your Pella windows. Understanding the type and design of your window operator is essential for proper maintenance and troubleshooting. If you have any questions or need further assistance, you can email us pictures of your operator to help with identification.
