Malta Window Parts and Repair

In your home, your windows are your eyes to the world. You want to protect and take care of this valuable investment. But what happens when the wood in those windows starts to age and can no longer be serviced because the original window manufacturer has gone out of business? Your only choice is to completely replace them, right?

Not any more. Malta sash parts are now available.

Malta replacement windows and parts are available through Fenster Components. Malta was founded in 1889 in Malta, OH and was acquired by ABC Manufacturing in 2007. While the Malta name remains, much of its product design has been changed, leaving past customers without replacement part opportunities. To our knowledge, Malta has officially closed as of 2013.  Fortunately, Fenster Components can help you repair your Malta windows.

Fenster Components — based in the Indianapolis, IN area — has been manufacturing replicated window sash for most major brands of wood windows since 1999. Fenster can supply you or your contractor with replicated wood components to match your Malta Windows. Fenster also offers innovative replacement products to upgrade your existing Malta windows with better energy performance, extended life span, and less maintenance utilizing cellular PVC technology.

Work smarter. Work faster. Save money. Now that’s a better view.

    Hi, I have a MALTA-786 casement window and need the screens replaced. The measurement of each screen is 20 1/8 X 35 3/4. They each have a lock pin on each side offset from center at 17 1/2 inches. They are brown in color. I would like to order two screens if you still make them (or can). Thank you, Bill

      Although most manufacturers made their own screens originally, there is usually nothing specific to the brand about the screen. Replacement screens can be purchased from any where. Fenster requires exact measurements, spring type, pull type, and color of frame and screen to produce a new screen. We do not have specific brand specifications for screens or hardware. Much like our replica sashes, screens are custom made from our stock materials. A sample is preferred, but photos are acceptable via sales@fensterusa.commailtomailto:sales@fensterusa.commailto :sales@fensterusa.com . This can be difficult via mail order that is why most of our screen work comes from local walk-in customers and dealers.

    I need to know if the crank on my old malta crankout is repairable or replaceable. If so, I may need to send you a picture since I don’t know the model or the age.

    • Posted September 17, 2013 at 5:45 pm | Permalink

      All window hardware is replaceable. That is, if it is still available. On the other hand, casement operators are not repairable. The most common failure is broken gear teeth or a stripped handle post. When the retainer pulls out of the spindle socket it can not be repaired. The entire assembly has to be replaced. The handle is usually a separate part and can be removed by loosening the set screw on the underside.

      The original Malta company has gone out of business and the new owners do not offer replacement parts for the older models. Fenster has access to thousands of after market parts, hardware, and weather stripping as well as two versions of old Malta casement sash frames. Keep in mind we cover as many as 20 brands, over 40 different profiles spanning nearly 4 decades. We need require a lot of information when building an order for a customer. When submitting information, please include photos, measurements, dates of manufacture, and any other pertinent information about your windows you can provide.

        Dave, Yeah, that’s an extremely specific part to the original brand. Many components like that were made specifically for the model of window and were discontinued with the window itself. You might try an online window hardware site that carries obsolete weatherstrip profiles.

    I have a Malta bay window with 2 bottom sash that open out, the outer glass has broken glass I think it would be better to just replace the sash I can send you pictures and specs please let me know what you need winter is around the corner or is it possible to just get the glass Payne replaced?
    Thanks

    • Posted October 22, 2013 at 2:11 pm | Permalink

      It a common mis-conception that the whole sash needs to be replaced when just the glass is broken. It is far more cost effective to replace just the glass. We often supply glass for complete sash orders, but prefer not to ship loose pieces of glass due to cost and liability. We recommend getting your glass replaced by a reputable, residential glass company in your area.

      Is there any way to get the plastic clips that come on the screens over time they have become britle and broke off these are the type of clip that is attached in the screen channel and then hook onto a track in the window moulding track I want to replace the screen and need some clips
      Thanks

      • Posted December 2, 2013 at 1:54 pm | Permalink

        With a few exceptions, most window hardware is not manufacturer specific. The majority of replacement hardware is universal. With that said, ‘plastic screen clips’ could mean a hundred different parts. Our best recommendation is to visit our online catalog on our website, wwww.fensterusa.com and try to identify the part you need. We can not process customer orders through our blog. Please complete a quote request also on our website and our customer service team will be happy to contact you with pricing and availability on the part number you provide.

    I have Malta aluminum clad windows (installed 1996) I need to replaced two bottom windows due to water damage. Can I buy just the bottom windows or do I need to replace the whole window?

    • Posted October 24, 2013 at 1:20 pm | Permalink

      Mary, When you say bottom windows we assume you mean sashes? Yes, the sashes can be replaced without replacing the entire window. However, our products are tailored to the window repair professional, especially clad windows. They require the transfer of the original cladding, glass, and hardware. This tends to be beyond the typical layperson’s window knowledge and experience. Specific window terminology is required to submit a quote. We highly recommend referring your window professional to our website http://www.fensterusa.com, to submit a quote form with all of the project details. This we allow us to being the quoting and window profile identification process.

    I have Malta windows and doors. The handles are breaking and need to be replaced. Can I buy new door handles?

    • Posted November 11, 2013 at 2:29 pm | Permalink

      Collen, The easy answer to your question is, yes, if they are available. Unfortunately, its a little more complicated than that. From our perspective, we manufacturer our own line of replicated replacement window sash and repair components. We have no association or connection to any window brands. As far as hardware, we are a retail outlet for an aftermarket hardware distributor. We have no point of reference or catalog for brand specific hardware. So the long about answer is, I have no idea what door handles Malta used on your particular model. You can access our online parts catalog from our website home page, http://www.fensterusa.com. If you are able to identify the handles you need, please complete a quote request and our sales team will be happy to send you pricing. With that said, we always recommend seeking out the original manufacturer or local distributor for help.

    The bottom piece of wood holding the window pane in on a MALTA 7A6 Casement Window is rotted. Can I just replace that wood piece or the whole sash or do I need a whole new window? Do you make these windows anymore?

    • Posted March 4, 2014 at 2:32 pm | Permalink

      Christine, I’m guessing we do, but the Malta model numbers don’t mean anything to us. The common mis-conception is we bought out Malta or something like that. We don’t own ANY window brands nor are we associated with any of them. We make our own copied versions of window brands that are out of business or no longer available. SO…we have replicated several Malta profiles, we just need to confirm if in fact we have the profile that matches yours. In answer to your question; You don’t need a whole new window, that’s for sure. We can only supply you with the wood parts, so if this is a metal clad sash, you would have to re-use the cladding half of the sash and assemble the parts. Typically we sell all four sides of the sash frame around the glass. We pre-cut the pieces to your provided measurements and do all the jointery for you so all you have to do is screw the sides together. Now, we will sell the profile by the foot, but none of the jointery is done. You’ll have to be somewhat of an experienced woodworker to complete the assembly. What you need to do is complete a quote form on our website, http://www.fensterusa.com. You’ll need to measure your sash from the outside, edge to edge giving us the true size of the sash frame. Additionally, you can email photos of the window taken from the EXTERIOR to sales@fensterusa.com so we can identify you model of window and confirm we have what you need.

        I was a malta rep for new England for 8 years 1992-2000 the code on the spacer 7 a 6 means the window was made in 1986 anything that has an a in front of a number means the decade of the 80″s a b in front of the number means it was made in the 90’s example 7b6 would mean 1996

    Do you know the overall glass thickness of a Malta casement window built in 1983, glass size is 15 1/2 x 35 1/2.

    • Posted March 12, 2014 at 3:56 pm | Permalink

      Greg, Unfortunately we don’t. We don’t have a reference of information for all the sash profiles we’ve replicated. I might be able to tell if I knew which sash profile you had. Even Malta model numbers don’t help. We copy window sash based on the profile and use our own part numbers. We would need exterior photos of your windows to determine which profile you have.

      You could also make a simple caliper to wrap around the sash frame out of some scraps of wood or even some kitchen tongs and measure it that way.

    I have Malta double hung windows, circa 1984-1985,and havn’t been able to find the clips that hold the lattices on the glass. Are the plastic clips still available? Thanks

    • Posted March 13, 2014 at 4:14 pm | Permalink

      Raymond, not from Malta since they’re basically out of business, but that doesn’t mean the parts aren’t available. See, most window hardware is not brand specific. You need plastic grill clips, not Malta grill clips. The problem is, we don’t know what those are. We’re a millwork shop that copies old window profiles. We have no idea what hardware was used on any number of brands or styles of windows. We represent an aftermarket hardware distributor that may have the correct part available, but you would have to identify that in the catalog. We do stock clear plastic 1″ long push pins which were used on many wood grills, but they’re not a “clip” as you call it. Visit our online catalog at http://www.fensterusa.com. If you are able to locate the part you need, we’d be happy to get pricing and availability to you. Just fill out a quote form with the part number from the catalog. Thanks!

    I own a modular home built in 1993 with Malta windows. Several of the windows do not stay up because the rope broke. How can I get the windows repaired? I called a window company and they came to my home to look at the windows and never contacted us again.

    • Posted May 7, 2014 at 1:46 pm | Permalink

      Mary, first we need to be talking wood windows, not vinyl. If you have wood windows, that’s a start. Second, sounds like you need new sash balances. The easiest way to repair this is to order new jambliner kits cut to fit your window opening. My best advice is to read our blog on our website about double hung jambliners. That article walks you through the measuring, ordering, and installation process.

    • Posted May 12, 2014 at 5:30 pm | Permalink

      Gary, The obvious stumbling block is the age of the windows and the availability of parts still in manufacture. We wouldn’t be able to identify anything that old. I can recommend you look through our online catalog and see if you can identify your operators. If you submit that information on our quote form we can research it for you.

Please ket me know if this would be a good addition to your reference library. I am looking for replacement weather strips that were used in Thermawood casements also if you could offer some help. They are not the bulb style, but flat with a bend.

        Thanks Carolyn! I would appreciate that. We’re always searching for historical information like that. When these companies go out of business, their materials are very difficult to find. You can mail that to my attention at; Fenster Components, 15350 Herriman Blvd. Noblesville, IN 46060. If you would like to clip off a piece of the weatherstripping and send it as well, I’ll see what we have that will work for you.

    This house was built in 1968. I need some replacement wood window grilles that press in or snap in on the inside of both panes of the double hung window. The grille has 3 vertical parts and 1 horizontal part. At the end/tip of each part is a metal clip that presses against the edge of the window securing the grille in place. The wood grille is not flat, it is beveled. These are Malta windows. Do you have these? The horizontal measurement is 31 inches and the vertical measurement is 27 inches. Please advise where I can get these if you don’t have these replacement grilles.

    • Posted June 4, 2014 at 9:21 pm | Permalink

      Andrew, We do not make wood grills unfortunately, but there is a company out of Ohio called Creative Millwork that specializes in wood grills and muntins. In fact, we understand that they supplied many window manufacturers with their grills.

    I built a home for a customer in 2000 and used Malta aluminum clad wood double hung windows. They are one of the best customers i’ve worked with in 30 years and we became good friends.Their windows have problems and I would really like to help them. They’re not looking for warranty work or free parts.They just want them fixed. Mostly the Low-E-Coating has failed. I believe I can probably get new insulated glazings locally, or would you be able to that also? There is one lower sash rail that has rotted and the gaskets have failed. I would like to try to get the whole lower sash unit: clading, glazing, wood and gaskets. Is this something your company would be able to do? Any help would be appreciated.

    • Posted July 8, 2014 at 2:42 pm | Permalink

      Dave, We’d like to help any way we can. The biggest thing for us is available materials. We are a millwork shop, not a window company per-say. The cladding is our biggest issue. Most sash cladding was proprietary and manufactured in house or by a private supplier. When the original window company went out of business, their cladding went with them. Consequently, we can not produce a complete sash with cladding on it. However, there are few windows we’ve seen that can not have the cladding removed and transferred to a new wood frame that we can make. We can also supply glazing units, however, keep shipping in mind. The shipping cost usually prices us above any local supplier. Finally, we do have several Malta profiles, specifically 3 versions of their vinyl clad double hung units. We have not seen an aluminum clad model. Not to say its not out there, we’ve just not had the opportunity to replicate it. Please visit our website, http://www.fensterusa.com and check out our sash profile catalog for available profiles and specs. If you’d like to get some pricing, please complete a quote form with your information. Thanks!

    I have 17 year old Malta wood with aluminum clad double hung windows. Many horizontal bottom pieces are rotting both top window and bottom window. I also have some windows that are fogging up, seal has failed. Can the bottom piece of wood be replaced and if so can the aluminum clad be salvaged? For the glass seal can you or any glass shop fix this and salvage the internal muttons? Or is it best to just get replacement windows?
    Thanks

    • Posted August 27, 2014 at 2:18 pm | Permalink

      Rick, Well yes to all of that except the new window part. Of course I would never recommend new windows since that is against everything my business is about. However, the window industry is challenging at its core. It always has been. Furthermore, the repair end of the industry is a greater challenge when trying to locate or manufacture components the original manufacture no longer supplies. Malta is one of our biggest sellers and equally frustrating (see my response to Dave Lane below). We can re-produce just about anything from a provided sample. The cladding typically can be re-used if in good condition. The glass can be re-used in a boot glazed sash. I suspect by the age, your windows may be wet glazed. In that case it will be difficult to salvage the glass without breaking it. All this said, I’ve supported the idea my whole career, that it is far less expensive to repair only the problematic windows vs. a whole house replacement. It may seem, window for window, the new window is less, but picture your home full of miss-matched windows?

    I had 19 Malta windows installed in June 2014! I did not know that the company went out of business and Gloryview Windows and More (Wade Benjamin) had these defective garbage windows installed. Currently, they haven’t been able to fix these windows. They don’t go up or down without struggle and leak cold air something fierce. Is there anyone out there that has fixed Malta windows that can maybe shed some light on this situation? I have a wood interior, white vinyl clad outside widow (casement). Please help!!!!!

    • Posted November 19, 2014 at 9:23 pm | Permalink

      June of 2014? We were told Malta went out of business a year ago? Unless… I’ve read this Wade Benjamin was a real piece of work. He probably looted the warehouse of remaining stock on his way out the door. Who knows! Its hard to say for sure what the issues are with the windows. Hard to slide up and down could be an installation problem such as the jambs were shimmed too tight or the sashes are not engaged with the balances. Leaking air on a brand new window could also be installation, or considering the circumstances, the windows may not have the proper weather stripping on them. I wouldn’t think you’d get anywhere with Benjamin since I believe he went to jail for fraud. My only recommendation is getting a professional window service provider to look at them and see if the defects can be corrected. Good Luck!

    Hello,

The following numbers are stamped in spacer channel metal between the panes of glass: Malta 7B5 (along the vertical side of door) and Malta 1B4 (along the horizontal bottom/top of door). Also on the bottom horizontal is the numbers ‘695’.
    Do you know of a currently available replacement product for this door by a different vendor, at equivalent size? Do you know of a Size Chart for Malta product numbers to reference?
    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Also, I do not understand what the following items are…
    Grills between the glass:
    Lite configuration (Example: 2/5 Casement, 3/2 Double Hung)
    Bar color (See list) [i don’t see a list]

The windows have a mfg. date of 5-a7. If there is a website or a specific, not generic, u-tube you can direct me to, it would be appreciated.

      Craig, Check out some other blog posts like Jambliners 101 or Fenster FAQ’s on jambliners. I’ve written about this procedure several times. Thanks!

    I am in need of replacement door hardware for our Malta French doors..The house was built in 1998.. Any ideas??? Thanks

      Mark, We don’t have much info on doors. All I could suggest is to go through our distributors catalog and see if you can identify what you have. You can access that catalog from our hardware page on our website, http://www.fensterusa.com

    I have four Malta 7A6 casement windows, with both left and right components. Two of the left mechanisms have failed. Are the mechanisms available? If so, how much are they, and what time frame is shipping ?

      I believe that should be a standard Truth dual arm operator, but you may want to confirm that by sending a picture to sales@fensterusa.com. Most operators are $39.00 plus shipping. If we have it in stock, ships within 2 business days. You can also visit our website for other hardware or Malta components at http://www.fensterusa.com. Thank you.

    I have wood double hung windows. The code on the window is 4A5. They were installed around 1983. I have a lot of window air leakage, the muttins and clips are broken, the clips for the screens have broken off and some of the hardware has broken. What are my options for replacement parts?

      Kevin, we don’t do much on the hardware side of things. Try one of our hardware partners: pickenswindowparts.com or allaboutdoors.com

    Ryan, I had a window replacement(glass and seals) company gave me a bid today. I know the company and they have many years of experience doing this work and are highly rated. Question. My South windows(18 years old) had a bluish cast low e. I can not longer see that tinting, even on the ones that the seals have not failed. These are vinyl. Do you happen to know how the tinting has failed even on the on the seals have not failed. Some I am having new glass installed are right beside the ones that have not failed. Your opinion. Even though I cannot see the tint now, will the new ones match.
    Thank you, Mark

    • Posted April 1, 2017 at 1:11 pm | Permalink

      Mark, The “LowE” is actually a coating applied to the glass. Early LowE technology was infamous for breaking down under high UV exposure (south side) causing the coating to bubble, discolor, and even peal off. This issue is independent of the seal failing. This is quite possibly what you are seeing. As for matching….um, no. Two major issues; 1. 18 years later nothing is going to match. Even plain old clear glass discolors over time when compared to a new fresh piece. 2nd, you have maybe a dozen glass manufacturers out there all making their own version of LowE glass. The chances of your window co. knowing which brand it is and picking the right one is very slim.

      With that said, the differences are slight. You will definitely see a difference when new/old glass is side by side, but spread out across a room or whole side of the house, you probably won’t even notice. If this is a concern for you, I recommend having all glass per room/per window grouping done together so it is all new at the same time and ages at the same rate. Thanks for the comment Mark.

    I have many Malta vinyl clad casements (hundreds) that the exterior glazing bead has become brittle and falling out.
    Spacer bar says Malta 7a6. Are any glazing beads available? Not sure of color. Faded looks to be a greenish color.

    Thanks for your help

    • Posted May 20, 2017 at 2:06 pm | Permalink

      Joey, I’m not familiar with a Malta casement that had an exterior glazing bead. Usually in these cases when the company disappears, so do their parts. Send a pic or to two my sales dept. sales@fensterusa.com and we’ll take a look at it.

    I have 22 Malta windows: Tilt, Wood, Vinyl clad outside, Double Hung in perfect shape (beautiful cherry stained) installed in 1991 (28 years ago).They are double hung and several are unable to stay up. Chords are broken or jammed. Are there replacement parts for this problem? If so where can I get them.

    I have been trying to identify the model of the Malta window in my dining room for some time. I finally saw imprinted on the metal inside of the glass frame, the words / number “Malta 5A5”. This window measures approx 71″w x 64″ t. It is a double casement, with a stationary center glass panel. Do you recognize this as a valid window identifier? I’m in need of the 2 casement panels at least, so I am curious if I am on a good track to start.

    Thanks, Rich

      Rich, The 5A5 is a glass manufacturing number and doesn’t tell us anything about the model. Really the best thing to do is send us pictures so we can identify it for you. If we have additional questions from there, we’ll have you collect some more info. The best shots are an exterior corner view, a sash edge shot with the window open, and an interior corner shot with the sash open. You can send those to our sales dept. at, sales@fensterusa.com

    I have Malta casement windows and need the hinge plate and the fitting that connects to the window on which the push-rod pushes and pulls. If I take photos do you think they can be had. The windows were installed in Spring 1997.

    Hi,

    I have a customer who has malta windows with # Malta 7BO on the spacer between the glass. It looks like a few of the sash cords are broken causing the windows to fall. Will you replacement jamb-liners work for these windows? If so, what info do I need to supply you with?

    • Posted April 17, 2018 at 2:14 pm | Permalink

      Hi Dan, If these are the vinyl clad model they made for many years, then yes, our liners should be a direct fit. That model had the “vee” plough, but you’ll want to look at that just in case you have another model than what I’m guessing. The order form is pretty straight forward on our jambliner (balance kits) product page. Just a couple quick fields to complete.

    I have a malta casement window that has a broken sash the glass and frame are broken. I’m not sure how to tell the difference between 300 & 400 sash. Is it possible to get an entire sash?

    • Posted July 5, 2018 at 2:04 pm | Permalink

      Joe, unfortunately no. We have discontinued those models due to lack of interest and complexity of repair.

    I have one piece that needs replacement.
    This is the piece that sits on a limestone base below the window sash.

      Mike, Sounds to me like you’re looking for some kind of sill material? We don’t deal with that much. Most handymen and carpenters what to make those kind of parts in the field.

    Hi, I have Malta double hung wood windows in my home , built in 1988 or so. The thin rope that keeps the window in place when raised has come undone on one side on several windows. There is a small plastic part attached to the undone rope that is broken. I believe that the part is referred to as a: pivot piece. I need to obtain and screw in the new plastic part to make the window work properly, but I don’t see how to remove the sash so that I can replace the pivot piece. Any ideas?

    • Posted August 25, 2018 at 2:20 pm | Permalink

      That should be a compression fit sash. Push out and away from the sash on the jamb tracks and pull the sash in toward you.

    We have a Malta casement window with a broken seal that causes it to be cloudy. Do you have replacement windows of the 1980’s era (if it has a model number on it, I’m not aware of its location). Its size is 38 inches (h) x 26 inches (w).

    Also, do you have replacement parts for the slide mechanism at the base of the window?

Model # on frame is cpd#243-n-035 , aluminum spacer # is Malta 00-2 , width is 42 75 ” height is 72.25 ” I replaced a pane in 2009 should have replaced all while they were in business. Do you supply the glass pane . Thx.

      Bill, Your balances are weak or broken. Our jambliner replacement kits will solve your issues. I believe Malta used the “vee plough” track shape. You can read more about our kits and order here: http://www.windowpartsusa.com.
