Step Two

To release the pressure catch on the top panel, raise the bottom three panels up to the top, then pull down sharply on all three at once. Lower all panels to the bottom panel position.

Step Three

Use a chair to rest the windows on when they are tipped out. To do this, release the slide latches of the front panel and tip the top of the panel toward you, resting it on the chair (bottom of panel stays in track). Repeat with each remaining panel.

Step Four

Rinse with clear water first. Using a soft cloth and Woolite® or Murphy Oil Soap® and water, clean face-up portion of the top panel (outside of the top panel). Spots from hard water mineral deposits from a sprinkler can be removed with a mixture of warm water and Woolite or Murphy Oil Soap (one cap-full to one gallon water). After cleaning, using Murphy Oil Soap will also help rejuvenate the look of the vinyl.

NOTE: For best results, we recommend a final cleaning with a moderate amount of our Vinyl Cleaner available from your PGT distributor. It will prolong the life of your Eze-Breeze Sliding Panels and reduce static electric charges that attract dust.

Step Five

Lift top panel. Return it to track by pushing thumb latch back. Raise the panel to a comfortable working height and clean the inside. After cleaning, move the top panel to its position at the top of the window opening. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the remaining panels, returning each to their normal position when clean.

Removing Sliding Panels

If necessary, follow these easy steps:

  1. Start with innermost panel (bottom panel).
  2. Release slide latches and tilt top toward you at about a 45 degree angle.
  3. Lift up the side to remove fixed pin at bottom of track.
  4. Carefully remove panel and set aside. Repeat for remaining panels.
    Note: Marking each panel will help you replace them in the proper order later.
  5. To replace, reverse procedure.
  6. It is also recommended to remove the Vents and clean the screens. This process will help in keeping the vinyl clean.
