Lincoln Windows & Patio Doors

Owner's Manual

Awning Windows

Purchasing windows is not unlike buying other building products. When a question arises, a helpful guide can lead you through common questions such as finishing interiors/exteriors, adjusting a hardware system or cleaning glass.

Our owner’s manual is a user-friendly guide intended to provide information and recommendations related to Lincoln Windows and Patio doors. Products tend to look better and last longer with the proper care and maintenance.

Screen Removal

Crank-out awning screens are mounted on the interior of the window. The screen is held in place by springs on the top. To remove the screen, lift the rail at the bottom and pull up and back over the operator. Once the assembly is cleared, simply pull the screen down and into the building.


Exterior Glass Cleaning

Once the screen is removed, crank the window open 30° to 45°. At this point you may pull the retainer clip back and lift the arm locking mechanism away from the slide shoe mounted on the sash track.

With this disconnected you will be free to lift the sash to 90° which will enable you to reach out to wash the outside of the sash. IMPORTANT: After the sash is disconnected it must be held open by blocking it in place or with the aid of another person.


Hinge Adjustment

In the event you should experience hinge chatter or bouncing during closing on your awning, you may tighten the small screw located on the hinge shoe. Tighten the screws on each hinge shoe equally until the problem is corrected. Be careful not to over tighten the screws.


Track Maintenance

To keep your Lincoln awnings operating smoothly it is important to keep the hinge tracks free of dirt and debris. To keep the tracks clean, brush them with a small dry paintbrush. Lubricate with a Teflon spray if necessary.
