Blind Tilter Problems – Troubleshooting Tips


Do your horizontal blinds have tilt problems? Here is your guide t fixing them:

    tilter mechanism on horizontal blinds
  1. First check the tilt rod; make sure that it runs through the tilter mechanism. If it doesn’t slide it back in place.


  2. Next check if the end stiffeners or the center lock are in any way blocking the Tilt from turning.


  3. Next check if the end lock is in any way blocking the Tilt from turning. The Tilt rod should be approximately 1-1/2" shorter than the headrail; at no point should it pass under the end lock. If it does, that might be what’s keeping the Tilt Rod from turning properly.


  4. This might seem a little obvious, but check that the Tilt Rod is straight. If it is bent, that would keep it from turning freely.


  5. Check that that the tilter mechanism is snuggly pressed against the headrail. There should not be any gap.


  6. Check the tape roll/drum to make sure that it is centered in its cradle or support. If it is not centered, it might be impeded from turning freely.


  7. Check the placement of the tilter and the tape roll supports. The tilt rod should be able to enter the tilter gear straight, without bending. It should be able to move through the tape roll supports without tension.


  8. If all these checks come up without any problem, there might just be a stiffness (possibly with squeaking) that needs to be sorted out. Try spraying the headrail components with a silicon spray. This includes the tilter and the tape rolls/drums. This might fix the stiffness.


  9. If none of these eight tips work, it means that the equipment itself has worn out or is broken. You will most likely have to replace the tilter.
