Window sash locks misaligned?
Continuing with older window fixes from last week, you may have experienced your locks no longer line up. The problem could be the rear sash was painted without it being all the way against the top jamb. In order to release it, carefully cut the paint-sealed seam with a window opener saw. Push the rear sash up to the top of the jamb. You may need to use a mallet to tap it upward. Use care when doing this.
