To repair vertical blinds that wont open: If you recently replaced any of the individual vertical vinyl vanes, then it is most likely that one may be installed backwards or may be overlapping another. Make sure all the individual vertical slats are in the correct position.
To fix vertical blinds that won’t rotate: First inspect the mechanism in the track to see if there is anything preventing the blinds from turning. Look for obvious things that may jam up the mechanism from turning. If everything looks normal, spray some lubricating spray (such as WD-40) where the twister rod is connected for rotating the blinds. Spray a very small amount while turning the rod. Spraying with lubricant will loosen and lubricate the turning mechanism and open the blinds. You can also spray some on the roller on the other end of the blinds and in the track itself. Once you finish spraying, turn the twist rod back and forth and pull the string to make sure everything has freed up.
