Exclamation Levelor cellular blinds: How to un-stick pushbutton?

For the umpteenth time my pushbutton Levelor cellular honeycomb style blinds have stuck in a half-open position in mid-window...sigh. I am so sick of this to put it mildly!

Does anyone on this forum have a clue as to how to fix this problem? I did find out that you fix it from the bottom of the cellular blind and not the top as you would assume.

I did talk to a tech that puts these in and he said: 1. it is a constant problem and 2. it is very tricky to fix them. Unfortunately, despite my asking, he did not show me how to do it either.

If you are thinking of getting the Levelor honeycomb cellular blinds, my suggestion is to get the corded ones and not the pushbutton ones unless you just love having problems with them every other month.

Take them in to store where they were purchased and ask that they be sent back to Levolor at their expense (a rep has already admitted this is a common problem). Customers shouldn't be expected to put up with faulty or poor enginerring, put it back on the manufacturer.

I have been here 2 years in a couple of days, so the Levelors are probably 1 yr. 9 months old--AND I have had to have 4 taken back to Lowe's already. They are a pain totally!!! Never again! Understand that it is only 3 Levelors I open daily since it is my front bay window, too. Can you imagine how OFTEN I would be taking these back if I took the entire group of windows up and down each day? Taking 4 back in less than 2 years and it is only for 3 windows.....horrible!!!!

I even wrote the company a few weeks back and you have to go thru the 7 tortures of Hell just to get some information from the company, too.

They have a lifetime warranty which means a lifetime of hell getting them out of the window and dragging them back to Home Depot for an exchange (stand there while they cut you a new one, also). Some day they will quit making this basic style, and I will be totally stuck with these non-working pushbutton things...grrrr!

I understand its an inconvenience. I've dealt with Levolor. Call the reps at the company until they replace the blinds...the life of a blind is longer than 2yrs.
