A broken VELUX blind can be fixed if you take the right steps. Here are a few common issues and their solutions:

In the case of faulty strings or cords, you can replace them with new ones. In the case of faulty mechanisms, you may need to replace the whole blind.

Broken brackets can cause blinds to fall down or not stay in place. Replace the bracket if the blinds are not staying in place.

You can clean your blinds with a damp cloth and mild detergent if they are dirty.

You may need to replace the gears or springs inside the blind if the blind is hard to operate.

Can you open electric VELUX blind manually?

In the event of power failure or other problems with the electric motor, it is possible to manually open electric VELUX blinds. In most cases, the manual override feature on the motor unit can be found if you remove the cover or look for a small switch or lever. In order to open an electric VELUX blind manually, you will need to locate it.

Make sure to use the manual override feature only when necessary, and only when the power is off, once you have located the manual override feature. If the power goes out, you can manually open or close the blind using the manual override feature. A battery backup is also a useful feature on some of the newer models, allowing you to open and close the blind without power.

In order to ensure your electric blinds are installed correctly, it is important to consult the installation and operation manual provided by VELUX for your specific model. Additionally, VELUX customer service or a professional should always be contacted if you are unsure how to manually override your electric VELUX blinds.
