Bathroom window won't stay open

Ours slowly closes, takes about a minute to work it's way closed, seems to be a very loose fit in the channel. Suppose I can cut a small wedge for it but thought I'd see what others do, if it's not just ours.

Hi: padlin... WOW...You must have paid extra for the auto close feature!!! I knew there was a reason I didn't order one. Alf

We also got the auto-close feature as bonus option. I cut a short piece of dowel to use as a prop.

Agree, will have to mention to ETI they need to change the terminology for the

"Opening Window in Bathroom"

Should be able to charge extra for

"Automatic Window in Bathroom"

Our bathroom window does not stay open either. We hung a small black blinder clip with fishing line from the window lock (so we wouldn't lose it) and clip it on the window channel to keep the window open.

Sounds like an issue just on the newer bathroom windows. We had one added to our 2008 5.0 in 2013 and it doesn't have that 'feature'!
